Moving from WordPress.com to WRDSB

Just a quick note to let our members know that if they have a pre-existing blog on the wordpress.com network (or even Blogger) we can easily import those blogs to the WRDSB network.

Advantages?

We can add any theme you wish, as well as custom widgets and plugins. Likewise, come the fall of 2010 we should be able to provide PAL synchronization – meaning students and teachers will we able to log-in to their blog using their email credentials!

A Quick Note About Roles…

A number of memebers of our blog community have notes that it is not possible for the ‘Authors’ of the blogs are not able to edit or delete any of the comments – they perception is that they should be able to. If you wish to assign your users more granular permissions and allow them to edit/delete their comments, you need to promote their rank from ‘Author’ to ‘Editor’ – this will allow them to have full control over comments.

WordPress Themes

It’s been great to see how this new WordPress community has been growing over the past few months. Users are really starting to settle-in to the WordPress environment and are making feature request on a daily basis. One such is request is to change the ‘look’ of the blogs – this is known as ‘theming’.

We currently are offering a few themes, but were interested in adding more… a lot more! So we are asking the members of our community to recommend themes they would like to use.  Search Google for ‘WordPress Themes‘ and find themes you might be interested in.  Make note of the name of the theme and if possible the URL and post your requests here as a comment.

Happy theming!

New content types

Just a quick note – have added the following content types to the blogs system: DOC, XLS, PPT, PUB.

By default, WordPress forbids the uploading of these content types as each allows for macros and other programming types which in turn could be used for nefarious reasons. 🙂

Please do not add any files to the blogs system if you are not the original author!
