YouSay WordPress opted for an AWS-based solution to overcome their WordPress development and customization challenges. The solution architecture included the following key components:
WordPress Hosting on Amazon EC2 Instances

Customization and Development
YouSay WordPress implemented various customizations to enhance its platform’s functionality and user experience. This included modifying the default web stories UI to display them in a grid view, creating a new mobile header UI, adding conditions for category display, and implementing a sprite image for efficient network requests.
Custom Templates and Elements
- The solution included custom templates for web stories, AMP pages, and single post pages. Additionally, Generate Press Elements were customized to meet specific requirements, ensuring a cohesive and visually appealing user interface.
Optimization and Performance Enhancements
To improve performance, the company employed WP-Rocket for CSS minification, cache clearing, and CDN utilization. They excluded files that should not be minified. WP Offload Media Lite was used to store site images in an S3 bucket, reducing the load on the server.
Integration with AWS Services
- YouSay WordPress leveraged various AWS services, including RDS, S3, and CloudFront, to ensure seamless operations, scalability, and data security. The solution architecture integrated these services to provide an optimized WordPress environment.
Implementing WordPress development, customization, and support on AWS Cloud provided YouSay WordPress with numerous benefits, including:
