JMCWeb redesign notes

Why WordPress?

More than just blog software:

Built-in taxonomy, blogs, comments, contact forms, administration, access levels, privacy.

Open-source community, extensibility, accessibility.

Web-based access from anywhere to add, edit, maintain and upload files. No FTP required.

Dynamic posts, static pages.
