Late Nite Prototyping

(work in progress, here’s a provisional brain dump)

Quick test install to demonstrate how WordPress can be used for a corporate newsroom:

(Update – 3rd November 2009 – Note from the Editor:
The prototype has been discontinued – but rest assured that the knowledge is still available)

The main page shows all news in chronological order.

Categories classify the various entries: press release, events, newsletter, industry sector…etc.

A click on category shows all items for that category, e.g. all events.

RSS feed for a specific category can be displayed on other web pages, external sites or can be subscribed by customers.

Next steps:

Delete blog features that are not needed, e.g. comments.

Change css design to match company corporate design.

é voila! Corporate News 2.0hhhhh
