Blog for the Degrowth Housing Tour


(jon r) #1

I have been contacted by @Francois and @gandhiano via a private channel about provisioning of a small blog for the Housing for Degrowth tour. Places used for publication are:

https://anitranelson.info/european-book-tour-2018/

Since we have also been asked to provide a blog, there is now also our offer to use an independent blogging system, https://housing.degrowth.net/. @Francois has been provided with credentials to log in for evaluation of the system.

Before starting cleanly with that site, we need to remove the getting-started Tag and to remove all the explanation articles currently visible on the page.

Hey @Francois

I have adjusted some little details.

  • The user account now calls you Francois Schneider.
  • Removed unneccessary menu entries.

Please go find a nice high resolution image that you can upload as “publication cover” to
https://housing.degrowth.net/ghost/#/settings/general

This is the image that is shown on the start page, which is a bit dark now.

You can also upload an avatar icon of yourself to
https://housing.degrowth.net/ghost/#/team/francois-schneider

This helps to make the site more personal.

If you wish for Anitra to write there, too, please invite her on https://housing.degrowth.net/ghost/#/team

If you also add an entry about the book itself, and where people might find additional material, then people have a little more context what the site is about.

For adding links to other pages, you can customise the menu in https://housing.degrowth.net/ghost/#/settings/design

I have now taken the liberty to repair the site logo a little, and make it more visible. I have also added an about page to the menu. Unfortunately the design of the background currently makes the menu buttons almost invisible, which should be revised.
