How to Launch a Crazy Cool Student Newspaper Website Using WordPress (@BUPipeDream)

In my memory, I picture green.  Dark green.  A quick check on archive.org confirmed it.  Until recently, the website for The Pipe Dream, the student newspaper at Binghamton University, was overrun with a green palate that hovered somewhere between grass and puke.

Cue Daniel O’Connor.  The paper’s lead web developer has saved the site from its so-so web 1.0 layout (thanks to a partnership with College Publisher).  He has enlivened the Dream with a minimalist, responsive design that is also apparently quite mobile-friendly.

And now for the best part: O’Connor laid out his entire development scheme on a special blog post, titled, “Moving Pipe Dream from College Publisher to WordPress.”  It’s comprehensive (it even includes a thank-you section at the end), and worth a read for any editor or adviser also pining for a CP-free web existence.  Please read: It’s not just a pipe dream.
