To move content between our content staging site and the live site, we’re using a premium plugin called RAMP, from Crowd Favorite. RAMP allows content owners to select content items on an item-by-item basis and push them over to the live site. It has a nice GUI in the WordPress admin and in theory end users can use it to manage content deployments.
Now that we have lots of real content in the staging site and we’ve got our custom theme going, along with a CPT and associated custom taxonomies, a big menu and everything, we can finally really put RAMP through its paces.
What we discovered is that the combination of RAMP and CMB2 requires customization to really work well.
