H5P Library/Content Upgrade
I like H5P. It is good. I did have some trouble figuring out library upgrades and subsequent content upgrades in the WordPress plugin. This video attempts to clarify the process for others.
I spent some time the other day helping our ITRTs figure out how to install WPMU and then get their single user WordPress blogs imported into WPMU. I’ll probably make a video sooner or later as this is probably murder without images. So here’s my shot at best practice advice in case you have to move a lot of blogs from WP to WPMU when you’re not the final end user and can’t screw up. 1. Go to your WPMU install and make a new blog. Make the url the same thing as your WP blog but add a 1 and the end (so if it the blog url is http://ego.com/loveme name this one loveme1). We’re doing this so you can import it in while leaving the original blog up until you’ve made sure everything worked the way you wanted. We’ll go over how to drop the 1 from the WPMU url later. The admin here will be whoever is the main user of the blog. You’ll have access no matter what as WPMU admin. 2. Got to your WP blog (the original one) and log in to the admin panel then choose tools>export. This will get all your content outIt doesn’t get your blogroll. If you want that do this.. Save it on your desktop or wherever in a […]

In doing so, I learned a few things. The primary one being that I often harm myself by being fairly good at making stuff work rather than understanding what I’m doing. That’s what I did here. The Flickr API thing was pretty legitimate. I knew what I was doing there but I pretty much crammed it into a widget plugin template without really understanding the whole thing. That led to more confusion around print
We have an awesome general education course starting this semester called Cultural Passport (aka RVArts). The goal is to get students involved with the community’s cultural events – participating, promoting, reviewing them. The web side of this ends up being pretty interesting. See their video below for more details on the course. When we started this conversation last year, I thought I was going to go the Gravity Form submission routeI thought I wrote a full tutorial on this but can’t find it. I often have unrealized good intentions though . . . and use a js library to make it possible to add the events to various calendars. Like most projects, particulars shifted and we started changing things pretty radically right before winter break. We ended up shooting for full WordPress editor access for students to create events and the desire to write three different types of responses (interviews, reviews, and features) that would be associated with a specific event. Also, like most projects, this was all a bit beyond what I’d ever done before. I started off thinking I’d create a custom post type for events. I was trying to make up my mind between using Advanced Custom Fields and CMB to help do that when I realized I hadn’t really thought about repeat events. The complexities involved […]
