It’s amazing that ALA has been willing the last few years to host an unconference event as part of its sprawling annual meeting in the summer. Over the past few years, I’ve been trying to maintain a list of library camps and unconferences at the LIS Wiki. Feel free to lend me a hand.
With the advice of a colleague here at Baruch College, Luke Waltzer, I’ve been able to set up a second installation of WordPress that gives my main website at stephenfrancoeur.com a series of static pages themed to look like my main blog, Digital Reference (which is my first WordPress installation). It took a bit of fooling around to get this second WordPress install to have a blog address at my root site (stephenfrancoeur.com), but these instructions from the WordPress codex that I used worked with few problems.
I tried to set up pretty permalinks for the static pages, but that got all bollocksed up, so for now I’ve got some ugly URLs. I also need to do more work with the WordPress files to strip out the remaining blog-like elements from the static pages; what I want are pages that look like web pages, not jury-rigged blog posts.
