We want to better our communication with the world. That is why we have set up a WordPress-Blog at

MartinSeibert has an admin-account and a valid FTP login. We have a virtual Server with 512MB RAM and 5 GB hard disk space.

The following tasks are open:

  • Find out, if SvenDowideit and ArthurClemens will help with WordPress solution. (MartinSeibert)
  • DONE Update the WordPress 2.6 to WordPress 2.7.1 (IT colleagues of MartinSeibert or anybody else, that can do the job)
  • DONE Set up a nameserver entry for, that points to the IP address That is where the blog is. (SvenDowideit)
  • DONE Start blogging. (MartinSeibert)
  • DONE Offer WordPress accounts for everybody in the community, that wants to joing blogging. (MartinSeibert)
  • Integrate last 5 blogging entries on Foswiki homepage. (SvenDowideit)
  • Integrate blogging entries in our Twitter feed and on the Facebook page and other possible syndication platforms. (MartinSeibert)
  • Integrate WordPress in as much as possible
    • Tweak the WordPress templates, so that they look similar to our Foswiki homepage. (ArthurClemens)
    • Sync login credentials from to WordPress.
  • Work out the benefits of WordPress as a separate solution. (MartinSeibert)
    • We could save a lot of effort by using a Foswiki blog solution (i.e. the styling and login credentials sync no longer needs to be addressed). It will also show how flexible Foswiki is. It looks bad to have a Foswiki blog extension that even we wont use. -- AndrewJones - 25 Mar 2009
