What Makes Us Tick!

Content & Its Management

from Scientific American

The content management system (CMS) that makes all the content play nice together here is WordPress. Whether it be written at a desktop or a cell phone or sourced from other platforms, WordPress organizes and formats it for nearly every possible visitor opportunity.

Poverty Ridge is currently running WordPress 4.7.5.

Theme and Elements

The theme currently in use here at Poverty Ridge is Sunspot by Automattic.

Activated Plugins

The plugin writers are the true unsung heroes behind the WordPress world. Sure, without the active developer community for WordPress itself, they would not have the framework to build upon, but they expand and extend the basics into something even more special. Special tip of the hat to Davide Benini for the Plugins List plugin to list plugins (now that is a mouthful :P). Give him 5 stars if you like it on the official WP Plugins List page.

  • Logo

    Poverty_Ridge_fire_camp-Oregon-1936The logo we use is an adaptation of Photo Number 391965 from the US Forest Service Photograph Database, taken by E. Lindsay.

    The caption is Rest period at Poverty Ridge fire camp. CCC and was taken in October, 1936. The fire camp was located in Oregon, US. The CCC, the Civilian Conservation Corps, was a public works project set up after the US Great Depression. It not only gave much needed jobs, but contributed to the establishment of  many national parks and conservation projects that we continue to benefit from today.
