This project, launched at the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting in 2016, included the creation of two WordPress plugins and a custom theme. One plugin was created to manage the new account sign-up process supporting the Platypus, the CASTAC Blog and Assemblage. This plugin added an additional layer to the WordPress signup process to collect additional information about new users and automated the approval process, including email alerts and integration with CASTAC’s Slack channel. The second plugin managed the profile editing interface for members. The theme is a fully responsive theme using the CASTAC branding that I developed in 2015.
Member profile edit screen. I created a custom plugin to create custom interface, profile fields, and taxonomies to manage member profile information.
