Technical notes

All of the pages on this site are being updated regularly. Note that in a blog (one type of website; this site is a blog), a “page” is distinguished from a “post.” This means updates to pages or comments do not show in the “archives” (see top menu), which only tracks “posts.”

On this site at this time, the main content is put onto “pages” organized by content (see list at right). Short-term notes (such as a particular job announcement or study abroad opportunity) are added as “posts.”

Only the owner of the site (the Center) can contribute either pages or posts. Everyone is able to make “comments” – these can be on any topic. Comments are NOT searchable, so it is important to put them on the relevant page so others will find them!

Categories” and “tags” are designed to help classify content (see lists at right), but are only available for posts, not pages or comments. Posts and pages are equally searchable (see box at top right), so the search function is an alternate method of looking for content related to specific interests.
