This is huge site that was converted from a legacy Windows blog system. This required us to do complex data conversions in Excel and MySQL to convert the various tables and assets in the old system to JOOMLA. This included more than 2500 articles and 1000's of photos and videos. Special attention was paid to the effort after launch during which we have captured and redirected more than 17,000 of the old URLs. Check out the site. There is a lot here to learn. This site gets visitors from every country in the world every day.
SPECIAL NOTE: This site maxed out the native search function in JOOMLA so we installed an implementation of Elastisearch. This external search server keeps a real time index of the site and provides nearly instant results. Try it here: https://biblearchaeology.org/search
FROM THE SITE:
The modern science of archaeology, which began in the mid-1800’s, has revolutionized our knowledge of the ancient Biblical world. Many archaeological discoveries relate directly to Scripture and confirm the historicity of the Biblical record. Other discoveries provide fascinating background material for the Biblical narratives. As people are made aware of these discoveries, the Bible suddenly comes alive and Bible study is made more interesting and meaningful. Today’s technology has enabled archaeological research and publication to be greatly accelerated. More information is now being produced than ever before. It is even hard for professionals to keep up with the most recent developments. That’s why the ministry of Associates for Biblical Research is so important and valuable. Our staff of professional archaeologists is actually producing some of the latest research. In addition, we stay in communication with other scholars active in the field and get the inside story on recent developments. Associates for Biblical Research keeps you informed on the latest discoveries. Furthermore, we also provide a Biblical perspective for the significance of each discovery.
