WordPress and the set of tools it provides can be used beyond the scope of a typical blog or even a simple content-management system for any website. This session will give an overview of how a major online publication, Salon.com, uses WordPress as its day-to-day publishing platform and the journey it took to get there. We’ll cover the things that WordPress can do right out of the box, the major features we’ve added or subtracted, and ways we’ve adapted the software to support our editorial process to meet the demands of a high-energy, high-traffic publishing environment. We’ll go over the challenges we faced, how we overcame them, and those we’re still dealing with.
