Foyer: Super-Simple Signage with Wordpress

Feedback form is now closed.
Foyer, a free WordPress plug-in that allows you to display slides and videos on your site, is a "set it and forget it" solution for library digital signage. This session will show you how to install a LAMP stack and WordPress or, alternatively, let Reclaim Hosting do it for you for a small fee. Then we’ll cover installing, configuring and beginning to use the plug-in. We’ll talk about some policies and best practices that will keep your signage system attractive and easy to manage month after month, we'll discuss the challenges of building confidence among staff interested in creating slides but hesitant to do so, and you’ll create, upload and send some greetings from LibTech to the Wallace Library at Wheaton College (MA)’s foyer in real-time.
