I just finished up giving my session on Building an Intranet with WordPress at WordCamp Fraser Valley this morning. This session reflected mostly on a personal project that I’ve worked on at my radio day job. In the true spirit of giving back to the WordPress community, I showcased the project as well as the story and planning that went into it.
As promised, here are the slides from my session on SlideShare.
Here is a break down of the plugins I mentioned in this session. The conversion of Keynote to PowerPoint to SlideShare didn’t take so well, so here’s a list of those plugins with links to find out more about them.
- Add Local Avatar
- Easy Flash Embed
- FancyBox Gallery
- Flv Player
- Pods CMS
- Simply Show IDs
- WordPress Database Backup
If you having any questions about the material I’ve presented, please leave a comment on this post.
Pingback: What I learned at WordCamp Fraser Valley
I was wondering if this could be done (I was looking at Moodle too, as an example of something with relatively easy security too).
Did you host it behind a firewall or do you rely on WordPress security stuff and host it on the web? I guess I’m asking if people can access it remotely.
This is great, by the way. Often, the only ‘push’ you need is somebody showing you that it’s possible. Good word – thanks.
WordPress is so scalable, I’m quickly learning you can do just about anything with it and then expand or shrink it later without having to re-engineer the entire system. Does the entire staff have accounts with different permissions or are there only a few accounts that are responsible for the content?
I have troubles makings the files in my WordPress intranet secure, have any tips for that?
