    Developed for the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Generously funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Important Note

If you were running this plugin pre-2.3 and have upgraded, you need to go into the Feeder menu and click the Switch feeds to new retrieval setup button.

Project goals:

  • Retrieve items within the WordPress dashboard as an independent process (no required attachment to external servers)

  • Retrieve their full content to read from within WordPress's dashboard.

  • Allow individuals or groups to mark items for consideration and discuss them within the dashboard, either from the retrieved items or via bookmarklet.

  • Easily post about retrieved items as the end point of a smoothly integrated editorial process.

  • Provide the entire process in a attractive, responsive and mobile friendly design.

  • Provide an open source back-end that is easily extendable for other developers and that can be hooked into by other independent WordPress plugins.

Testing, contributions, and feedback welcome.
