Not sure if anyone knows of our site or not but it got a bit of an upgrade today:
We'd be interesting in your comments and feedback either as a reply to this post or directly through the site.
(bug reports welcomed)
For those of you interested...
(the plug-is described below were developed due to a lack of tools or to make writing a story less of a web development experience)
the banner system is a custom module.
Our thumbnails use WordPress thumbnails but we generate custom icons for thumbnails depending on what category the stories are posted.
We have a custom module that allows us to manage slideshow galleries, pdf downloads and banner images.
We've added a multi author module so our stories can be credited by the right people with the click of a button.
We've also created a module that allows writers to choose the type of copyright to apply to each article.
Our related articles plug-in allows authors to choose specifically how many and what types of articles appear.
