    Simple enough :)

    Anyone know of good examples of wordpress being used as a CMS rather than a blog?

    Thanks

    This is not very blog like:

    http://moneyterms.co.uk

    The theme has been customised, there are a couple of useful plugins (related posts and the_excerpt_reloaded) other than that it is a fairly standard install.

    My site! (it's the link from my profile name) all the pages in "more" are run from wordpress.

    It uses the Page function of wordpress, but that's a custom template, and there's a couple of hacks things like .htaccess.

    Maerk - Thats the sort of thing i'm looking for i.e. the use of pages instead of posts. I too would be looking at having a news section which would use the traditional 'post' format.

    One question - how do you get the front page to only show the latest news item?

    Thanks

    It's a custom loop:

    Moshu/VSP - Thanks those are good examples. This wordpress/cms will actually be for a local charity anyway. Would want to create a plain template... What did you guys do? Start with a new one? Or 'butcher' an existing one?

    3Stripe - v.nice!

    Thanks guys!

    Butchering an existing one is a lot easier than starting from scratch.

    I'd agree with that. Maybe keep the php files from the theme, but delete all of the css... if you're up for the challenge...

    personally, i'd recommend making the header and CSS files from scratch, and then tweaking the other template files to your liking. at least that's what I did.

    you can use Custom String plugin or the query_posts template tag

    With my very first theme I started with an existing one which had a layout quite close to what I wanted.
    (just for the accuracy: themes are made up of several template files!)

    Lyford Cay International School - http://www.lyfordcayis.net

    We have installed two wordpress blogs to creata a CMS. We have one that allows public access to search engines and RSS feeds and another to privately protect intranet services such as school bulletins. RSS feeds are restricted on the intranet unless users are registered and logged in.

    We would love someone to develop a plugin which restricts access to posts by user level but allows unrestricted access podcast or selected catagories.

    We are presently installing wordpress on all student Macbooks to extend our intranet further and promote ICT school-wide. Our students and teachers will be able access each others blogs and podcasts. A fantastic opportunity for our students.

    I would love to hear ideas on expanding this.

    I hope you find this info of use.

    We love WordPress. We are indebted to the WordPress team.

    Does anyone have an answer for this? I am looking to do something similar. I would like to use wordpress to spit out some xml files for me.

    I have one... but it's not public yet ;)
