About WordPress and Mimbo
STC is built on WordPress, a well established blogging tool. We have made some simple modifications to WordPress in order to apply it as a content managment platform. We are using Darrin Hoyt’s Mimbo theme. The theme makes extensive use of WP’s template tag system to create a non-traditional “magazine style” layout. It contains no images and only minimal CSS styling. According to Hoyt, the theme ”…exists as a clean, grid-based starter layout for designers to install and style to their own liking.” The Mimbo theme can be seen and downloaded at Darrin’s Mimbo Download page.
We here at STC continue to experiment and learn about the subtleties of page layout and PHP programming. Please send us an email note with questions or suggestions for improvement.
