I’ve recently created two author society sites on WordPress, one an update of an existing site and one a new site.
The Jack London Society Site: http://jacklondonsociety.org.
Among the features of the new SSAWW site:
- Better visibility for the reading lists and other SSAWW-L compilations of materials.
- Integration with Twitter and Facebook so that posts to the site will be posted to Twitter. Individual pages can be liked or shared, too.
- Calls for papers and new book notices posted to the front page as they’re received before being posted to inner pages
- The ability to add notices of new articles, etc., to a page in the comments.(Coming soon) PayPal buttons so that members can pay dues by credit card or PayPal.
The old site will remain available, but all the updates will be at the new site.
