Animal Politico : WordPress Publisher Spotlight

Animal Politico : WordPress Publisher Spotlight  阅读原文»

Reflection Media, a small web-design and development firm with a focus on WordPress Custom Solutions, was hired to implement the design and structure of the portal. They answered a few questions about Animal Politico and WordPress.

Tell us about the site:
Animal Politico is a Mexican political portal. It’s only available online and is powered almost entirely by WordPress.Since its launch last Autumn, there are over 5000 articles and 44 sub-blogs out of which 3 sub-blogs are used as sort of a discussion forum.

Other features include:

  • Facebook connect for subscribers – only logged-in users can post comments
  • Custom profile fields for users like date of birth, education level, etc.
  • Custom taxonomies are used for home-page positioning of articles
  • Ajax powered photo-galleries and video-galleries
  • MailChimp integration – sending newsletters directly from the WP admin panel.

What publishing challenges did WordPress help Animal Politico address?
I think what was most needed by the editors was flexibility to post, sort and prioritize news articles. With the help of custom taxonomies and a few custom meta-boxes we were able to offer them just that without any problems. Price was also an issue and choosing WordPress as our platform considerably reduced the development expenses.

What are your (development) team’s favorite WordPress features?
I think the flexibility we get from the hooks and filters system is what we love most. It provides almost unlimited flexibility without disrupting the update path.

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left." Deadpan gallows humor: the only possible response to having Courtney Love as a client. (Besides asking for a hefty retainer.) [ P6 ] Before Lauren Conrad's contract expired in March, MTV
