The Dr TLUD website is built using a WordPress content management system which incorporates carefully-defined categories, tags, and various other features we believe best facilitate content navigation and access. This website also incorporates a unique “Direct Navigation” feature which we’ve created for special matrix or table-based link collections (more on this below).
There are two classes of content on this website: static pages and posts. Static pages contain items of information that are of general interest to all site visitors. As the name suggests, the information on static pages does not change very often (for example, descriptions of technology, history, terminology, etc.). All static pages are accessed using the horizontal menu under the top banner. Note that some static pages contain dynamic information when that information is of general interest to all site visitors (for example, announcements and news).
All other content (which is most new content) will be presented through categorized and tagged administrative posts. Comments by registered site visitors will be allowed as well.
Posts are typically classified by broad groupings known as categories, and any given post may be classified under more than one category. Posts are also classified by tags, which are more specific classifiers used to reflect a greater degree of a post’s detail. In the right-hand column of this page are clickable category and tag names which (when clicked) trigger searches for posts under the clicked classification. Note that after clicking on a category name, the tags shown in the “Search by Tag” section are updated so that only those connected to posts within that category are displayed. Therefore, it is helpful to click firstly on a category name, and then select (click) a tag. Of course, one can always select (click) a tag without having first selected a category. Matched posts are displayed in abbreviated form in reverse chronological order in the main (left-hand) column of the page.
Since each post is also classified by its date (according to the day it was posted to the Dr TLUD website), one may select posts to view by using the daily and monthly archive selectors in the right-hand column.
Apart from category, tag, and date classifiers, the Dr TLUD website has a unique “Direct Navigation” feature which displays on mouse-hover tables of links for direct navigation to selected important or popular posts, publications, and/or other multimedia items.
