A Report on the Implementation of WordPress as the CMS for Library Currents

By  |  0 Comments



In this 2-page report, I summarize how I researched and tested three open source content management systems (CMS) (WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla!), and how the ratings of each led to the choice of WordPress as the CMS for the Library Currents beta launch. I also detail the process of installing WordPress on my web host, which plug-ins were chosen and why they were chosen, and the costs involved in the implementation.

For the month of November, I will be investigating the types of content that can be created for a blog, and the specific subjects that will be the focus of Library Currents. I will also create two original articles and populate the Web 2.0 Resource Directory with several dozen useful listings, many of which have already been covered in my own project blog postings from September and October.

You can take a look at the 2-page report on Google Drive here.
