Just by looking at the New England Press Consortium website, one wouldn’t guess there’s WordPress behind all of it.
The creator says :
The New England Press Consortium website is live and powered by WordPress. The site content is mostly temporary until real stories start being posted tomorrow during the Democratic National Convention. Lots of MPEG-4 video is coming this week.
Most of the development work centered around the front page and back end. Custom queries were used to call the appropriate entries. The back end had to be friendly enough for even an XHTML-ignorant broadcast journalist to use. Excerpt text boxes were enlarged, quick edit buttons were changed to more understandable terms and to allow easy video segment linking, file upload displays the code for video and flash content (not just img), and the upload automatically resizes the images.
Goes to say how easy it is to hack wordpress to do your bidding, and how, to start with it is quite user friendly.
