About CIDTechnical Notes, or How to Use this Website

This website is a blog (one type of website, meaning one which is regularly updated). Blogs distinguish between a “page” (mostly static content on a general topic) and a “post” (a shorter term announcements or description). WordPress automatically maintains a chronological listing of all posts; pages are not included, but are easily accessible through the menu.

Categories are designed to help classify content, 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.

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!
