Xangan Experiments with WordPress   2 comments

Acclimation

I’m refreshing my memory with WordPress. I installed the WordPress application to our server at my former job last year to replace the temporary Wix site, which temporarily covered for the accidentally deleted site. There are too many features to be knee-deep in. As a blogging platform, WordPress is jacked. The application is robust enough to power any website at the corporate level. Not sure if it changes with the theme you have activated, but WordPress has most of the general posting formats covered:

  • Standard – it’s the default format (can be changed) for anyone to blog away. Same thing with Xanga, Blogger, Tumblr and Facebook Notes before everyone realized that people went to Facebook to stop blogging.
  • Aside – It’s similar to a Facebook status update. A Twitter update. Xanga Pulse.
  • Image – Self-explanatory. I think Tumblr is more well-known for it, besides reblogs (which WordPress.com also have)
  • Video – Uploaded into the site or from external sources (YouTube, Vimeo, etc).
  • Quote – I always found this to be redundant and can be replicated using Standard format. Tumblr has the same format, but it’s nice to have.
  • Link – Self-explanatory.
