The Official Charts Company Website Launch

by Cat Woods


This week sees the press announcement of The Official Charts website.  The final result is one that we at Wickedweb and The Official Charts are proud of, and a vast improvement in terms of front end appeal to the consumer and the technical development that operates behind the scenes.

With a complete design overhaul, and fantastic new functionality, fans of the UK Charts can now hear, watch, and purchase chart entries on the site through 7digital, Tunetribe and Muzu.

The feedback from the users of the website has been phenomenal since launch, ‘superb’, ‘looks amazing’,  ‘congratulations’, ‘great clear new look’.

Managing Director, Martin Talbot, stated that “it was important that our new site was as advanced as the charts now are – it is designed to be the ultimate destination site for anyone looking to find out what is happening in music right now, as well giving the option to delve into five decades of British music history.”


Check out the awesome additions - the historic timeline, the countdown clock, video preview of a track, listen to a track. The website is controlled through Wickedweb CMS, along with some rather clever automated features through which we hold back on the charts releases until precisely 7pm every Sunday. The CMS gives The Official Charts the much needed flexibility to instantaneously edit features such as the main home page, selecting which charts feature on landing pages, and many more.

For more information on the project check out The Official Charts Company Case Study page.

Plus there's even more exciting elements being released very soon. Watch this space to see future developments and check out the site now ... if you haven't had a sneaky peak already.
