I tweaked the documentation for UMW Blogs to reflect the administrative back end changes for WPMu 2.5 & 2.6. I figured this may be helpful to some folks that are using this application and might need some screen shots, quick documentation, etc. It’s all Creative Commons, so no need to ask, just pilfer and pillage at will. Additionally, I put most of the screen shots on the UMW DTLT Flickr account so that folks can use what ever they need. Andy Rush and I will be turning to the videos soon, but as of now they haven’t been updated.
If anyone else is doing documentation of their own, it would be useful if you could share what you’ve got so far. I imagine seeing some other examples of how people are approaching this would help fill in the gaps that remain with the UWM Blogs FAQ and WordPress Guide. If you are so inclined just leave a link in the comments or e-mail me the URL of the site at jimgroom_at_gmail.com.
UBC blogs will indeed be doing some pillaging! We are also developing our own documentation which will be online shortly at http://blogs.ubc.ca/blog/category/support/ . Not much is up yet, although quite a bit has already been created and will be there shortly.
You are an open source application management hero to us all. Thanks!
@Andre I look forward to the UBC Blogs documentation. You all have done such amazing work over there that I am almost sad you are going to go live sometime soon and blow little old UMW Blogs out of the water. You’re keeping us honest over here 🙂
@Brian That may be the highest compliment anyone has ever paid me on or off this blog. Thank you, for I finally have a name for what I aspire to be.
Jim, I’m going to try to upgrade our (nascent) wpmu eportfolio install this weekend, if I can find the energy (having some radiation this summer, and it’s kicking me a bit at this point). I will definitely be grabbing some of your documentation (you generous soul!) and will also contribute ours as it develops–especially working on some screencasts. Ours might not be so so usable for others, since the I’m trying to use the word “eportfolio” instead of “blog” wherever possible–but hell, that’s just quibbling, anyway!
I look forward to it, and, more importantly, I do hope you are well! As you know, anything I can do for the folks at MacCauley Honors College is a just an added bonus, for it’s you all that taught me what instructional technology was in the first place 🙂
