WordPress for handling news feed?

Postby uckelman » February 10th, 2014, 11:23 am

The software we're using for handling the news feed isn't maintained anymore and these days fills our web server logs with warnings. I'd like to switch to something which is maintained and could additionally be used for keeping a VASSAL blog. Along those lines, I'm considering trying WordPress.

Thoughts?

Personally, I'm not familiar with it but it usually doesn't take me long to catch on to something new.

Seems quite popular.
I'd say go for it.

I'm in the middle of trying out a test install now.

It wasn't too hard to get everything working. There's a little bit of CSS cleanup left to do to make the news pages fit into the site, but nothing major. Right now, I have it set up parallel to the old news system, just so we can poke around a bit and test things before making it live. DrNostromo, I'll get you a login for it shortly so you can go in and play around a bit.
