WordPress for “Very Readable” Web Content at Charleston Southern
After the recent blog post here about Alfred University and The Johns Hopkins University using WordPress to format magazines for online reading, John Strubel, director of integrated marketing at Charleston Southern University, sent along this note that’s worth repeating:
- “WordPress offers a nice selection of ‘magazine’ style formats. It’s very readable and easier to navigate than the pdf providers. I encourage any university relations/development department to consider the cost-effective options. We’ve also been able to connect to archives and cross-promote other online publishing platforms, etc.”
Charleston Southern had indeed made a strong entry in what those of us fond of online reading can only hope is a growing movement. Really folks, the effort is well worth it to get results like this that are far better than anything I’ve yet seen using a “flip” tech approach.
Love your readers. Don’t just “flip” the print version of your magazine to your website.
Read the current issue of “CSU Magazine” and see for yourself.
