I’ve been researching WordPress as a CMS for potential use on my own sites, but some of the information could certainly apply to the Stearn’s Farm project.
WordPress as CMS links:
- WordPress as CMS with 25 Great Plugins – onextrapixel
- Powerful CMS Using WordPress – Noupe
- Unfinished WordPress CMS page – WordPress Codex
I will update this post as I find more information and possibly pull out info from the links.
So far it is looking like WordPress will not work for my personal plans. The main reason I was interested was the nice text editing features that I certainly would not be able to recreate myself, and of course the fact that I potentially wouldn’t need to write that much to have a continuously update CMS. But it seems like it would be a lot of work to get it to do what I want it to.
[update] The text editor used in WordPress is called TinyMCE which seems to be a seperate project that can be integratable into any site. I may build out my own sites but include TinyMCE as an editing option.[/update]
