Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"This is a good start: http://www.wpbeginner.com/showcase/17-popular-universities-that-are-using-wordpress/. Also, we are using WP for our sites but we're still migrating - Georgia State University: http://www.gsu.edu."

"Definitely. Thanks! What sort of feedback did you get from departments and other content managers who felt deep ownership of their content (that might or might not have been cut from the final)?"

Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"Great slides, Gordon! I'm working out what we think may be our custom post types and taxonomy. Since I could only read your slides, what was your presentation on curation of content like? How did you curate program pages and guides, research…"

Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"You are awesome! Thank you for sharing all of this. I just met with our communications team and we're going to begin a content audit. I'm waiting to hear if there are set content types and categories already in place or if we can create…"

Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"Oh, this is excellent. Thank you, Cara! Was your site completely developed in-house or was any of it outsourced (design, coding, etc.)? Good point about limiting dependency on external plugins. What is your backup and update maintenance plan like?…"

Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"This is excellent. Thank you for sharing. Since I'm so new here I don't know what's down the road, as yet, so I'm just exploring what others have gone through and done. There are some great college/university WordPress sites…"

Hillary Meister replied to Dan Bashaw's discussion Migration to WordPress
"Hello! Thanks for setting this up. So, what were the first steps you took in the migration process? Was your WP site built in-house or through an outside development firm?"

"Hi Daniel - I would LOVE to hear about your trials/tips/opportunities. I haven't had the big meeting yet where I learn about the migration - the templates we'll use, etc. From what I understand (this is my third day on the job) we're…"

A. Watson replied to Mark Greenfield's discussion The Future of the UWEBD Social Network
"I was a recent addition and did not find too much activity here that I could leverage but LinkedIn does seem to be the logical destination.  Perhaps there is interest here and you can crowd source the migration. Migrating the content could…"

Jay Massey replied to Mark Greenfield's discussion The Future of the UWEBD Social Network
