I recently launched a WordPress site for the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (aka CHRGJ), a great human rights law organization based at NYU. We did an overhaul of a site that they were updating by hand, which of course WordPress is a great replacement for. The challenge, though, was managing the massive amount of documents they host. They’ve got press releases, articles, and full book-length PDF reports. WordPress has really come a long way in making itself flexible enough to handle the specific needs of a site like this. I used custom post types for the different types of documents so the staff could easily upload or enter content and know that it would go into the right place in the site. Now they’re set up to maintain an archive of all the important work they’re doing.
