Well the email sign up is working well. Support page is working well. I am still flummoxed by youtube and the lovely little wp application for embedding videos. This will be my second try with one of my personal videos.
This looks a lot more like a web page now. There is still lots to do. Especially in the area of membership and volunteerism. A cafe menu is required. Hopefully from this point we will be able to post interesting shows in here, rather than blathers about the rather painless construction of a community theatre web site. I am still waiting for the calendar to arrive by email. That is kinda crazy. There calendar you see hear is simply a place holder. Has some neat features, but not not good enough for handling the number and diversity of staircase bookings. For your patience I have included this sweet political parody youtube (yes I am just testing video insertion)
OMIGOD!! They killed Vipers Video Quicktags. Arrrrrrrgh!
It is also worth noting that Google Java implementation wrecks the calendar on the page as well. Google analytics breaks shashin and highslide as well. So no analytics yet.
There are so many google apps for WP and so few of them work. 🙂
Okay so the old staircase site was supposed to be viewable while I hacked away at wordpress. But for some reason the lovely site that my brother wrote for me will not play with us. It appears to be unhappy that it is in its own folder. I am sure that it is has something to do with the PHP [DOCUMENT_ROOT]. Anyhoo. The data is not lost, just forgotten.
It is amazing. Trying to find a workable calendar for the Staircase. It is very very hard. The key items needed are rapid deployment of event information with multiple categories. Recurring entries and the ability to edit solitary entries within the recurring entries, and month view. Calendarix did a nice job of that for us. Our version of calendarix was heavily modded to for our juicy delights: images, preset locations, preset fees, etc. I have installed 8 wordpress calendars, all of which are missing key features. Juicy features are not even being considered at this point. I have looked at commercial calendars but they either lack modability, or don’t supply a month view (because they are innovative!!). Looks like calendarix wins. Juice to be squeezed into it later.
Well the staircase.org site has reached another iteration. Although this neophytic propagation is very public in its growth. Staircase.org is in the process of returning.
