A curious part of work which I sort of started is the implementation of a CMS for an itnernal project. Big issue: we run on a Windows server, we’re limited to ASP. I haven’t suggested that we install PHP yet, since I will safely assume its a long shot. Any suggestions? Oh, if you can provide a non-exe version of OpenWiki for me, I’ll… link you!
So, corollary to that, I’m testing out WordPress 2.0 (my own sandbox here). Impressions? Everything else every avid WP user should be familiar with by now is still there, albeit a spruced up UI with AJAX, most prominently on the Write page.
- Default Akismet and WP Backup plugins.
- Import from Blogger, Textpattern, and RSS.
- Neat color customization for the default Kubrick (v1) theme
- Expanded user roles: Administrator, Author, Editor, Contributor,Subscriber
If you’ve been using a wordpress.com blog, it follows almost the same presentation/scheme. In sum, I’m sort of glad most of the updates are cosmetic, and the other added features are actually useful.
TECH-TIP: Some websites blocked at work? Try Google’s Language Tools, and enter the forbidden URL in the Translate a web page field, and choose any language conversion to English If you’re geeky enough though, you would’ve read this from the same nerd-world I subscribe to.
