Before we all left for Thanksgiving last week, we met to review some of the site-designs Gonzalo mocked up. He came up with some really sleek, multi-functional visual elements like personal icons (gravitars) that act almost as bullet-points visually, and will still have the functionality to take a user to that person's bio page.
We defined four different types of pages of which we need to be conscious: home page, bio page, project page, and a regular post. In the interest of visual-continuity we came up with a 6-section template that will be easy to modify for the different page typ...
We met today to talk about the next stage of development, the Widget Plan.
We defined four unique "pages" that we'll consider in widgetizing (the quotations denote that our pages do not function in the usual way WP Pages do).
Our exception pages (those that will not necessarily be part of this Widgetized construction) include:
Tag Page (Cloud)
Comments by (Fire hose)
Blog (Fire hose)

Since we've decided that Pressible and ProjectPress are beyond blogging, Eric and I decided we'd better remove all of the blog language from the site!

- Change "Gimme a blog!" option to "Gimme a site!"
Create Site Page
- Change title to "Get [another] Pressible Site in Seconds"...
Blueprint CSS Framework is the grid-based CSS framework I am leaning towards using for the next stage of Project Press development. It is a very elegant framework allowing for fast layout development. I also think it will help guide our effort with "widgetizing" the Project Press theme.
One of the sites in the UWM Wordpress set is a PostSecret-style blog.
We presented ProjectPress to EdLab today, and at the end asked them for ideas about existing or potential projects/sites would benefit from using ProjectPress. Here are their (awesome) ideas:
- Fiscal Responsibility Project
- Let Freedom Swing
- TC Social Venture Competition
- TC Assets
- TC Record
- NYS Finance Project
- TC Conferences
- EdLab Project Space
- EdLab Review
- TC Job Search
- Library/Journal Updater
- Alumni Service
- New Teacher Blogs
- some sort of mobile management/interface
This will be a great jumping-off point for the PP designers to begin thinking of s...
We initially need a color palette, basic design elements, layout ideas, etc
