Busy Days And Volunteer Work With WordPress

I’m currently busy with my payed day work and thus have only very small ressources for voluteer work. I met with some friends today to work on a new WordPress site. We finished some tasks and talked about the future steps and the lauch of the site. We also launched a NextCloud instance and I showed a bit of the features to my friends.

Because I’ll on another meeting they will show the site and the NextCloud instance to the whole group of local volunteers during the next weekend.

Installed WordPress On A Small PC

I worked further on the small pc with an wireless access point and added a wordpress instance. I exported the work, I already did on my notebook and imported it into the database on the small pc. I configured wordpress to point to the imported database. I copied also the wordpress theme over and installed a missing event calendar plugin. There is only one missing point. I had to copy the content from the uploads directory too. That’s on my todo.

Further Work With Theming

I worked a bit further on the WordPress theme for a local organisation and got some nice pictures for the header of the site. I cropped them a bit with Gimp and combined them together with the logo in a new banner. We have some great places in Duisburg, like the ‚Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord‘ (an former ironwork with a great light show) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landschaftspark_Duisburg-Nord), Tiger and Turtle (a Magic Moutan / a walkable sculpture on top of a hill) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_and_Turtle_%E2%80%93_Magic_Mountain) and the ‚Innenhafen‘ (a former part of the inner harbor) (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innenhafen_Duisburg).

It’s always easy and fun to work with free software tools on nice pictures 😉
