WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Over time our project got some good press: press releases, interviews, media appearances

Now I want to create a "press page" (something like this). Requirements:

  • is easy to update - everyone can write html at some degree, the procedure for adding a new article on the press page should be straightforward
  • aggregates content from the original articles - a picture, title, maybe an abstract(excerpts )
  • bind in my current theme (cannot be changed atm)

How can I achieve this? Is there any plugin I can use?

You can create the custom post types for Press Releases, News etc with external website links with this plugin. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/press-news-events/ You have to just list those custom post types where you want to display those.

I suggest you to take a look at the following website links

http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types http://wp.smashingmagazine.com/2012/11/08/complete-guide-custom-post-types/

These are really handy. In your question you did not write if its for an already exisiting theme/template or for a regular user (no developer).

That would give the people and me on wordpress answers a better insight of how to guide you through your problem.

Thanks for the links - I've updated my question: it has to fit in my current theme & the updates have to be made by someone with only minimal html experience –  Ando Apr 23 '13 at 13:01
    
So the person who made the theme has no experience with php? If so then i would suggest the answer of Subharanjan You can create the custom post types for Press Releases, News etc with external website links with this plugin. wordpress.org/extend/plugins/press-news-events You have to just list those custom post types where you want to display those. –  Wesley Cheung Apr 23 '13 at 13:08

The "PressRoom by Newswire" (a free plugin that I authored) creates a press room page on the user's website. It will also helps the user publish and distribute press releases. PressRoom by Newswire allows the user to create "pin style" content blocks for the new press room page. Control over the style of these blocks is provided through an interface that allows the user to choose backgrounds, colors, borders, headers, footers, etc. The plugin settings provide a CSS window to change other aspects of the press room page.

PressRoom by Newswire includes 8 custom post type interfaces. These new interfaces can be used to create different kinds of content blocks for the press room page:

• Press Release Blocks • Embed Blocks • Image Albums • Quote Blocks • Social Media Blocks • Link Blocks • Contact Blocks • Text Blocks

Each of the press room blocks created by the user becomes a widget that is available for use elsewhere on the website.

The plugin is currently under review with WordPress right now (should be available from them at https://wordpress.org/plugins/pressroom-by-newswire/ shortly) in the mean time, it is available for free on my website:
