Advanced uses

  • You can edit what the tweet look like when the blog post is published (bottom right of the page)
  • Quick post redirect, we have a plugin that can redirect pages, posts or custom Post types to another location quickly (for internal or external URLs). So if you made a blog article on your own blog, you don't have to copy and paste it here, just make a quick abstract and redirect to your page.


Tech Details

Our WordPress is managed by Pagely. They handle most of updates and so on. We are still responsible for updating plug-ins and updating PHP versions or updates that can break things.


The blog uses LDAP with the Active Directory Integration plugin to do user authentication and creation. If people have trouble logging in, there is likely a certificate issue for space.pumpingstationone.org (this should be updated automatically but you know, computers…)


Caveats

  • the "Role Equivalent Groups" setting will overwrite existing roles including with lower permission roles.
