The Benefits Of Using WordPress As A CMS – @B2Community


What began as a blogging tool in 2003 has grown in less than a decade to become the largest self-hosted Content Management System (CMS) platform in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

In simple terms, a content management system allows you to manage your content in a structured environment. It stores all of your documents, images, videos and any other type of online content in an organized way, so that you can easily add, retrieve, edit, delete and publish your content quickly and easily.

Content management systems also allow multiple editors to access, manage and work on the content, and publish it under different sections of the site.

As you can see from the chart below, WordPress is the most widely distributed CMS technology in the world …

In fact, WordPress leads all other CMS technologies by quite a significant margin …

So … what exactly is it that makes WordPress the most popular choice for a Content Management System?

Here are just 5 reasons to get excited about using WordPress:

1 – WordPress Is Free

Well, for a start, WordPress is completely FREE to use! In fact, you can download the full WordPress software application free of charge, and host it on your own domain without having to pay any software license fees whatsoever.

2 – WordPress Is Easy To Use

One of the reasons why WordPress has become so popular so quickly, is that it requires no technical or programming skills to use or manage.

Once WordPress is installed and configured, almost everything else, from using and running it, to redesigning and restructuring it, can be easily managed using simple interfaces and menus that require little to no web skills.

De la NASA a las Barras de Chocolate: TCHO
(*Extracto) Vía fayerwayer.com

Datos

Hacer una barra de chocolate toma entre 4 y 5 días. Son jornadas de datos que son tomados desde esas viejas máquinas usadas en Alemania oriental, mediante distintos dispositivos de baja tecnología conectados a interfaces muy sencillas que luego son enviadas vía Internet a una aplicación de iPad. De la mano de la japonesa Fuji Heavy Industries, armaron un piloto de lo que esperan será el futuro de la automatización de fábricas de diverso tamaño. Por ejemplo, lograron controlar desde un dispositivo móvil cosas tan importantes – para el caso del cacao – como la temperatura de la fábrica, hasta el monitoreo de seguridad e iluminación.

La historia de TCHO no es una historia de chocolates, es la misma historia de Elon Musk – creador de empresas como Tesla o Space X. Veteranos de la tecnología que concentran sus esfuerzos en una nueva pasión, si se puede decir un pasatiempo fuera de línea, y usan todo lo que aprendieron en el pasado en revolucionar los procesos industriales y de creación de productos. Es la historia de cómo la tecnología aplicada va dejando el mundo de los cables y se va acercando al mundo real; de cómo pensar como un programador o ingeniero permite competir, con sólo 40 empleados, con compañías gigantes; y de cómo el modelo del startup y la innovación en internet puede ser aplicado a otros rubros.

How to Improve Workflow in a Multi-Author WordPress Blog | @ProBlogger


 

@ProBlogger

This guest post is by Syed Balkhi of WPBeginner.

Running a multi-author blog can become a hassle, especially if you do not have a dedicated content manager for your site.Having run several multi-author blogs myself, I understand the issues you face and decisions you have to make.

If you’re running a multi-author blog, you may have asked yourself questions like, should I give the writer access to my WordPress dashboard? Is it secure? How do I monitor their activities to see they aren’t messing up my website? How do I improve my workflow?

In this article, I will share my personal experience in managing a collaborative WordPress site safely and effectively.

The “t” in “team” is also for “trust”

If you want to improve your workflow, then you will have to give your writers access to your WordPress dashboard. Otherwise, you will find yourself copying and pasting a lot of elements from a Word Document into your WordPress dashboard, attaching images, adding styling elements, and so on.

Fortunately, WordPress comes with numerous user roles with various permission levels.

user capability

If you look at the charts above, the two permission levels that make the most sense for multi-author blogs are Contributor and Author.

The biggest issue with Contributors is that they can’t attach images because they do not have the ability to upload files. Since you want your authors to have the ability to upload and attach images to their articles, you will want to give them Author-level permissions.

The big issue with that is that it gives them the ability to publish posts, delete posts, edit published posts, and so on. While I trust all of my authors, I don’t want things to go live without going through an editorial review. So I don’t want them to have this capability.

The good thing about WordPress is that there is a plugin for just about everything. You can use a popular plugin called Members to modify the capabilities of the Author role. Once you install the plugin, go to Users > Roles and modify the Author role. Your final permissions settings should look something like this:

As you notice, the only abilities we’ve given Authors here are editing posts, reading posts, and uploading files.

Microsoft’s cloud service SkyDrive is great, and no one has noticed

This is a guest post, written by investor Brad Feld.

In July I wrote a post where I was Searching For A Collaborative Writing Tool. I got a bunch of suggestions – some people suggested their startups, some suggested Google Docs, and one person (a friend who works for Microsoft) suggested  Microsoft SkyDrive. Amy Batchelor and I were deep in working on Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur. We were trying to use Scrivener but that wasn’t working for two writers so I moved us to Google Docs. But I knew that wouldn’t be great because I’ve struggled with long documents in Google Docs in the past, especially since eventually we had to move to Microsoft Word for our publisher (Wiley) anyway.
