Integrate into existing website... (5 posts)

    I know almost nothing about coding and such, I am just an idea guy. I am working on a website for a company that has many locations internationally, and we would like to integrate something like this into our website. It would look something like this: each international arm of the company would have its own "mini-site" within the big site. These people at the international locations would be clueless as to how to do any html editing whatsoever, so what we need is an extremely easy to use interface that would allow them to (1) login, (2) post an article that doesn't require html knowledge for simple things like italics and such, (3) would allow them to upload a picture in much the same way that they would save a document on their computer. Honestly we want something like "Blogger" but we havent been able to find it in an opensource format that we can customize to look like the rest of our site. Any help would be fantastic. Again, I know almost nothing about code, I am just the "idea guy," but any directions you could point me in would be helpful. Thanks!

    Since you're just the idea guy, the answer is "Yes." In other words, WordPress can do this, but you're going to want the guy who will do the code ask the questions.

    Here are some things you might want to point the coder in the direction of:

    http://codex.wordpress.org
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Images (PhotoPress in particular is easy to use)

    Thanks! I will point the coder in this direction. Anyone else have anything to add to this?

    I have sent a link to this thread to the coder; he should be monitoring it and perhaps responding.

    I have done for a client a complete website, mainly using only the Pages feature, so the update is easy + a related blog, all using WP.
    For totally non-technical users you can even add a html-editor plugin for the backend.
