DTC 356 – Spring 2012 Electronic Research and the Rhetoric of Information


Class: April 4 2012 WordPress Organization Lab

Today we are going to experiment with WordPress and putting our post in some sort of order.

Your most basic choices are chronology, categories, and tags.

Chronology is the order of posts. By default they are in reverse-chronological order. This biases the most recent over the older. There is a plugin available that reverses this and allows you to choose a bias for older over newer.

Categories allow you to perform a 2nd order classification. You may diagram a taxonomy and choose categories to represent levels of your order. Categories are neat and orderly. WordPress allows you to place posts in more than one category, so you may also take advantage of the property of digital objects that allows them to be in more than one place at a time.
