I am starting this series so as to demonstrate the capabilities of using WordPress as CMS coupled up with other scripts (like forum script bbPress). The series will begin with the implementation details of WordPress and bbPress in my recent project Need A Project (a site for students looking to improve their coding skills). Then it will continue with how I used WordPress to design my college website JEC, Kukas.
First of all, we will decide how we are going to build our website using WordPress. We will use a page on the homepage of the site. A different page will act as a blog and will show the posts in the chronological order.
For example :
Homepage : http://needaproject.com
Blog : http://needaproject.com/blog
Forums : http://needaproject.com/discussion
Posts / Pages : http://needaproject.com/post-or-page-title/
Follow the tutorial to install WordPress (manually via FTP/SFTP, via fantastico or via SVN) first and then catch up with the whole series here:
- Basic Setup
- How to use a page template
- Building a Front page using WordPress
- Showing posts or custom excerpts of posts
- Showing random items from a list
- Having multiple widgetized different sidebars in WordPress
- Showing bbPress content inside WordPress
- Parse and show RSS feeds in WordPress
If you are a WordPress based developer or want to develop your own web projects using WordPress then you might want to hook up with the series. In fact, I would suggest you to hook up as it will prove to be really helpful. Live examples with demonstrations can’t hurt. Now can they? So Subscribe via RSS or via email.
And if you want to ask a question about any implementation of WordPress and bbPress on NAP, then I encourage you to freely ask here in the comments section and I will cover that in a post.
I checked the website you’ve build for the college. It’s looking very nice.
