A Bava Bumrush of WordCamp NYC

I’m pretty excited for the upcoming WordCamp in NYC, not only is it a wonderful excuse to go back home, but it is also shaping up to be one of the biggest WordPress shindigs ever. Moreover, it’s being hosted at CUNY’s Baruch College providing some well-earned recognition of the amazing work happening at Blogs@Baruch—a recent […] Continue reading

Figured I’d republish it […] Continue reading

The Future of WPMu

There has been a lot of discussion about the future of WPMu with the coming merge of WPMu and WP, and I understand there are concerns and issues all around. I’m not in the business of selling WPMu, so my concerns aren’t so much caught up with the preservation of the WPMu name, but they […] Continue reading

Then there is BuddyPress on UMW Blogs

…and oh what a beautiful thing it is.  We made no special announcement, and we have kept the profile data to a bare minimum, and Martha just pulled the whole thing together with the awesome new theme (and who’s work shows no fear!). And I have to say I love the visual integration with BuddyPress, […] Continue reading

WPMu Development for Education

Hats off to Andre Malan for getting the dev.wpmued aggregation site together in no time at all—did it take him a single night of kicking ass while Brian Lamb was fast asleep? The idea behind the site, which you can find here, is right line with all the goodness that came out of the Open […] Continue reading

NextGen Gallery

have been envying Lafayette College’s NextGen Gallery goodness in their WPMu Pilot, and after finally setting aside some time I installed the plugin and played with it (you can find it  here).  It worked pretty much out-of-the-box, the only issue I ran into was that I had to disable the flash uploader in the […] Continue reading

WordCampFred

There have been a few people expressing interest in getting together and talking about using WordPress and WPMu for education here in Fredericksburg. And I imagine there might be some others out there, so I’m proposing an informal gathering called WordCampFred that will focus on using WP/WPMu for schools. It will not have any presentations, […] Continue reading

Integrating MediaWiki into BuddyPress Activity Streams

Boone Gorges developed this pretty slick extension for MediaWiki which makes the loose integration of MediaWiki, WPMu, and BuddyPress that much more useful. You can read his post about the extension here, but short version is that edits made in MediaWiki by anyone within the user community will show up in the BuddyPress activity feed.

WPMu as OCW Platform….a solution?

David Wiley just blogged about using WPMu as an OCW solution, and one of the issues he is running into is directory structure. What he wants is each department to have its own parent blog, and then child blogs within each department space. For example: http://ocw.byu.edu/math (a department blog) and http://ocw.byu.edu/math/math101 (as a blog within the department […] Continue reading
