We've just launched our newest feature - The 2009-2010 Catalog - Department of Graduate and Professional Studies. It's all built in WordPress. Check it out: http://content.nichols.edu/course_catalogs/gps/

The new site uses a plugin to manage the sidebar navigations - Page Lists Plus - see that here: http://www.technokinetics.com/plugins/page-lists-plus/. Other than that, it's a standard WordPress install with custom built theme.

Thanks Eileen!

Claudia,
That is impressive. We still produce our print based catalog and then pdf it for the web - ugh - thanks for the inspiration.

Hey Daniel,
Thanks for the feedback.
I'll pass the feedback about the catalog navigation on to the team. Also, are you still experiencing difficulty getting to our site?

We use Wordpress and I'm currently redesigning our site so I'll be sure to checkout this plug-in. Have you implemented a search feature? It would be great to find a search feature that only searches within certain pages/posts and their children. I made a search feature for Wordpress for our tutorials programme www.queens.unimelb.edu.au/tutorials/ but I'm far from happy and will need to redo this after the main page design.

Also, for Nichols, the list is incredibly long and confusing. It might be more useful to build a list of contents as the contents of a page inside a template, as the list is incredibly long... something more like an overview of things broken into disciplines - like this? Just a thought...

I found this plug-in useful because it only shows the children of the current page, granted users have to work through but perhaps it saves some confusion...

...also, I can no longer access your site for some reason :)

"Yep, I got the same messages. Some of our sites use SSL and we've been talking about migrating all the rest our sites for a while now. I suspect we will be doing it rather than just talking about it sooner rather than later now. :\"

Should we migrate to https?

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
