Using Firefox with the extension (add-on) copy as html is what I use. For example, IPM Made Easy
The other useful bit is to manipulate your feeds to gain a title and link. I’ve also used a blog editor like Zoundry.
Another trick is to use the sidebar for organizing the big items into groups. See what you think here, Grassroots Science– for the Unorganized Borough or here, Biocultural Science & Management– careful thought, etc.
Lorelle VanFossen is terrific for ideas, Lorelle on WordPress
Hi! Wow, how did you find me? Bethel! Amazing. I just wanted a list of everything that is on my blog, since I am using it more like I would my desktop to store stuff, and I wanted visitors to be able to see what all the contents were all at once. WordPress doesn’t seem set up to do it, and I am much more inclined to spend my time adding more content than fiddling with technology. And yet…
I think I understand the “using the sidebar” thing, but what an extension in Firefox is I don’t know and I don’t understand what it means to “manipulate my feeds.” At this point, I don’t know that the index is the right place to spend my time since I have no idea how to reach my audience and I suspect I am starting to have enough content to be interesting to them…what a remarkable tool this is! Thanks for reaching out…it looks like you are a precious resource!
Try Lorelle’s book on blogging. She also writes well, especially for beginners. I take it you don’t use Firefox as a browser. When you really need to do more than write your posts, I think FF would help a lot to organize the blog, but not until you are ready.
Yes, you mentioned Bethel. Plus, I’ve done museum studies (chemistry as well as inventorying, processing, how to use, ethics, etc.) Nice to have you writing.
[Your blog in WordPress feeds out categories, search terms, etc. that can be used to gather your posts back for organizing. But see Lorelle’s book first.]
Hi ellen, you could include the url’s from this list. I like the idea of an index of posts, but, I think pretty soon it will become really very long and unusable.
So, instead of playing around with FF, I’d go with something more simple like using tags… as these are more searchable, and would make it more like a blog… you could then include a tag cloud, or tag list (whatever this theme allows) in the sidebar, which would be searchable in the same way as the categories.
It wouldn’t take too long to go through all the old posts and include a new set of tags. Also, you could try this without getting rid of the index and see how it goes – no harm, no foul.
By the way your blog is looking great… congrats, I hope you’re enjoying doing it.
All the best, Dan.
OK, Dan, you made this suggestion almost three months ago, and then I finally had a DOH moment when I realized what you meant and that I could actually do it and now three months later I’ve finally done it!
