Front page blog is up

Postby paulsobczak » Fri May 01, 2009 2:23 pm

The front page blog is up and running there are a few things that I will be working on but it is now working. Everybody is welcome to contribute, you will be posting under what Wordpress calls

Contributor - Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts

So one of the admins will read and post your article, we can fast track this in the future once we fine tune the process.

So let the posts come in, please post anything maker related.

We can schedule posts as well, so there is not need to worry about 12 posts at once

It looks great, I like it a lot better than the old template.

The only problem I've run into so far is that contributors cant upload media, so no pictures for their posts, unless they just pasted the url and the editors added the images before publishing. I've tried to find a solution for my own blog but I haven't found anything. I might just be looking in the wrong place. Kinda weird because they can still embed flash and videos.

can we get the sub title changed to our mission statement?

Twin Cities Maker: Discussion concerning a maker shop in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

should be
Twin Cities Maker: A Twin Cities based community to make, share and learn.

we *are* a community at this point, we're beyond a discussion.

Bad idea, now anyone can register and publish to the homepage without any approval process...
