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
