Charm City Current

A growing Baltimore blogging network, Charm City Current is based on a design by Jen Kelly. As lead developer, I set up and configured WordPress MU to maintain the same theme site-wide while also allowing individual blogs to have their own sidebar content. Utilizing my Ordered Thumbnails plugin, the homepage was programmed to show the most recently updated posts across the entire WPMU installation using images from a blog post or the blog’s default image if no images are found in the post to display.

I also coded a plugin to show the most popular posts site-wide based on comment activity in a specified time frame.

This project was completed while employed by The Baltimore Sun.
