AppsForX WordPress plugin

Apps4X WordPress

Introduction

This is a WordPress plugin which enables event organizers to manage their events. People can submit ideas to these events.

Example: OKFN Belgium organized a hackathon. This hackathon had a jury and awards that were offered to the participants. People were able to submit ideas for this hackathon, like a "GitHub Livefeed". The plugin should then be able to handle the aspects of adding/editing/submitting ideas and events.

This plugin aims to be conform the apps4eu ontology. This means that the publicly viewable pages using this plugin will contain the corresponding RDFa tags for the vocabulary. It was built for the Apps for Europe project.

  • You can now add new events, ideas and apps directly from the administration area
  • If you want users to be able to submit ideas/apps, give them at least the "Submitter" role. You may want to enable open user registration as well. You can find these parameters under Settings > General.
