So I WordPressed my department’s website. We only need fairly minimal information on the website, but it’s been a pain keeping the old site updated. Now everyone can have their own account – including MA students, I reckon – and hopefully information will be more easily available. Being able to edit pages that are outside of the blog chronology makes WordPress a good tool for a smallish site that needs to be regularly edited by several people. At least I think so at this point, we’ll see as we’ve used it for a while.

It took me about an hour to install it and add some very basic content, and then I (well, the department) hired a student to fix the design. Nice. About time our department has an RSS feed.

    Great job!
    Can you now please make the rest of the University of Bergen do what you just did?
    Also, where can I find RSS-feeds of new papers being published/written by students at the University?
    Back when I was a student representant in NSU-Bergen I spent quite some time working on the issue of publishing master papers on-line. It is slowly becoming a reality, but with RSS feeds it just becomes so much more useful for those of us who do not surf those pages daily.
    Here is an example NOT how to do this… (I hope html works in comments)

    Ah. OK; so I should probably set up a separate category in the dept blog that has MA theses and such so people can subscribe to that RSS feed separately, eh?
