A few projects that have come up recently that were best accomplished by setting up some instances of WordPress.
The Study of the U.S. Institute on Journalism and Media is the first case where I’ve set up WordPress more as a content management system for pages rather than as a blog. I think the template still needs a little work. The Summer Times 2009 is the repository for the collected works of the campers at the 2009 Summer Journalism Institute here in the College.
Here are some plugins that I have found useful:
- NextGEN Gallery – Both Summer Times and the Institute asked for photo gallery functionality. The former made good use of this. The latter’s event starts this weekend and I imagine we’ll start seeing stuff from them soon.
- Simple LDAP Login – Enables creation of WordPress accounts using network login credentials.
- XHTML Video Embed – Summer Times needed to embed YouTube videos in posts. This does that and more.
- pageMash – Lets you rearrange page hierarchy by dragging and dropping.
