i.PH going the WordPress way

Was just talking to Ginny of i.PH about how to effectively educate people on how to use blogging tools like i.PH and WordPress. I suggested that aside from the usual FAQ and knowledgebase, a full featured tutorial animation might be the best solution.

I myself have been getting a lot of emails from newbie bloggers how to do this or do that in WordPress. I reckon that if these kind of how to’s are your basic WP management tasks, then a Flash tutorial would really be a good way to speed up and make things easier for the newbies. In fact this site is already selling WordPress tutorials on video. Looks like a nice business, eh?

Anyway, going back to the topic — Ginny did informed me that i.PH is porting Calliope to WordPress, or something to that effect. To those unfamiliar with Calliope, it’s the software which runs i.PH. Check out the Calliope Blogs website here which dotPH Technologies have been licensing to ISPs, Web Hosts and Registrars like Dotster for quite some time now.

Several of the WP features are not yet found in i.PH and by porting it, i.PH bloggers would be happy to get the full-features of WP and the usability features of Calliope. If that also includes some additional theming features like adding Adsense codes and importing from other blogs like BlogSpot, then that would be cool.

On a side note though, someone did asked me about a possibility of GPL codes included into Calliope. I don’t know actually and have not asked them about it.

    As I know, Calliope is created in top of Blog:CMS, so Calliope is licensed in GPL… I do not know where to get the code though.

    I always felt that Calliope ‘felt’ like some form of WordPress and other open source blogging applications. Now that they’re going the WordPress way, they should be sure to comply with the GPL, or it could be one big mess.

    On second thought, they could be just doing this to hop on the increased interest in WordPress, sort of taking a free ride. Don’t you think? ;)

    I just found out, Blog:CMS itself is build on top of NucleusCMS (highest rated by opensourcecms)…

    Core libraries are mostly NucleusCMS
    BB is PunBB
    Image gallery is Singapore Photo Gallery
    and Wiki is DocuWiki

    In that sense, I think we can ask for the source code of i.ph… :D

    Thanks for your exciting article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally the result of the inhalation of fibres from mesothelioma, which is a carcinogenic material. It truly is commonly witnessed among laborers in the structure industry who may have long experience of asbestos. It can be caused by moving into asbestos insulated buildings for some time of time, Genes plays an important role, and some individuals are more vulnerable for the risk compared to others.

    Also I believe that mesothelioma is a rare form of melanoma that is generally found in these previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous cellular material form in the mesothelium, which is a shielding lining which covers the vast majority of body’s organs. These cells commonly form within the lining in the lungs, abdomen, or the sac which actually encircles the heart. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  7. I almost never leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here i.PH going
    the WordPress way – YugaTech | Philippines, Tech News & Reviews.
    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of the responses come across as
    if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on
    additional social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of all of all your public pages like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
