Introduction

This the web platform for Vanessa Garlick and Liz Gorman’s final year undergraduate project.

WordPress

WordPress gives us most of what we need, most importantly identity and authentication functionality. The one thing we are obviously missing is a voting solution.

I have found two,

  • Post Voting, this is their web site, it is available via the ‘install themes’ page.
  • Vote it Up, this is on the wordpress site.

We want to vote on Posts aka Places, Proposals and Comments. This means that we need to distinguish between comments and proposals. This may require using templates to force the use of pictures. a ‘Proposal’ tag and forcing the inclusion of the voting panel. The installation of votes into a theme, may involve editing the .php files. WordPress document ‘the Loop’ on the codex, which needs to be understood. The voting themes give us a way of reporting the votes.

Domain Name

I ordered this domain name, but got the web interface wrong. It placed the domain in a separate commercial package. I rang ‘one and one’ who talked me through the transfer. The support call id is 245322465. Thanks.

Header CSS

I added an 8px margin top to the header logo.
