Hey Rufus,

What instructions are you thinking about, specifically?

> Wordpress has significant advantages:
> * Much more widely used
> * Easier to set up (installing jekyll is a serious pain, gh-pages
> deployment is non-obvious)
> * Much easier to add additional content
> * Easier to theme ...
> To start with all this would require is instructions on creating the
> relevant visualizations and embedding. (This would have an additional
> benefit of providing general instructions for any site, drupal, plain
> html etc)
> Later if we wanted to get fancy we could create a wordpress plugin.
> What do people think? (Note this does not mean getting rid of the
> gh-pages option but it would mean creating wordpress instructions [1]
> and giving them equal or higher priority in our instructions)
