VideoUniversity has a new look and functionality

If you’ve been here before, I’m sure you’ve noticed that we have a new look. The VideoUniversity site is now a blog. On all of the articles in the Free Library, you can now add your comments and I invite you to do so. In the past, updating articles from emails would take some time. Now all we need to do is just review your comments and approve them. Simple and fast and the article is updated.

Another advantage to this WordPress is that we can accept more advertising now that we can control space on the site so easily. Don’t worry we won’t bombard you. But advertising is important to keeping a site like this one running well.

Blogging software like WordPress has many advantages over the old web pages we used to use. You can now print and email the pages more easily and that’s just the beginning. It has taken months of work to make this conversion to WordPress and we’re still evolving.

I look forward to seeing your comments on the site.

Cheers,

Hal

    Hal – your site’s looking great! I’ve added your website to our Links page. I know how it is updating a big, established website. I’m going through that now with WVDR (avoiding the url so I won’t be spamming). I’d like to urge you to take a look at Joomla! (www.joomla.org) I think it offers more features and potential than WordPress. Also, more choice in designs (checkout RocketTheme.com), extensions, etc. But you probably don’t want to go through that again and your site really is looking great. Congratulations!

    Thanks Hank! We considered some of the other blog software. One reason I went with WP is that they have such a large installed base of users, programmers, and plug-ins. The really hard part was converting all the existing pages into WordPress pages that look good. It’s a lot easier to migrate from WordPress to Joomla than it is from SHTML to WordPress. The hard part is over now.

    Thank you,
    Hal
