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.
