Pablo Accuosto, from SendasAL in Uruguay, has developed a module for the popular WordPress CMS to showcase IDS Knowledge Services content of thematically organised and hand selected academic research on poverty reduction in the developing world that is freely available to access online. The module allows the administrator to select document content, organisations, countries, regions and taxonomy terms from either Eldis or BRIDGE, and import or display this information in a WordPress site. Once set up, this module will automatically bring in new content to your site whenever it is added to the Eldis or BRIDGE websites.
There are two IDS plugins; IDS Import and IDS Views.
This module enables the periodic importing of content into WordPress’s database. IDS documents and organisations are imported as WordPress custom post types, while IDS regions, countries, themes (and also keywords and authors) are imported as WordPress custom taxonomy terms. Content and terms can also be imported manually.
This plugin allows to query the IDS collection of documents and organisations and display them using WordPress widgets.
