Website Notes

Before making comments and suggestions, please read this page first.

IMPORTANT: The side navigation menu is a work in progress (I’m not happy with it). The priority is to getting the content onto the site, and I will find a better menu (or write one) when time allows. If you can suggest a better menu, please let me know. WordPress’s popularity is also a downside, there are sometimes dozens of options to evaluate (and then you end up writing your own).

Infrastructure

The website uses WordPress, with the following plugins:

  • Akismet – provides anti-spam protection for comments
  • Anthologize – allows a project to be exported in ebook format
  • WordPress Backup to Dropbox – as the name implies, automatically backs up WordPress files and database to Dropbox.
  • Google Analytics for WordPress – add the Google Analytics tracking code; Big Brother is watching you
  • Jetpack by WordPress.com – Provides many features including basic statistics, and mobile access to the website
  • WordFence – website security

Possible future additions: WordPress SEO, bbPress forum (we will try comments on pages for now), Redirection (to help us deal with broken links).
