I will start a short series of tutorials here to explain in small steps about what Knol authors can expect from WordPress-Annotium, so that the migration will get better understood.
What happens now to Knol authors is like moving from one house to an other one and I will try to explain it on this way. So first of all, how is this new house looking?
Are there templates in WordPress-Annotium?
YES, but ONLY two templates for the moment. Please have a look below:
So this house is not our own house, authors are renting it only and this for FREE. Are authors allowed to transform this house, meaning to use an other template as the two proposed templates?
Authors are allowed, of course, to change the templates but... NO, don't do this! Here below why:
On Knol, authors were authorized and encouraged to create their own templates but this is not allowed for Annotum Template. We may ask for more specific templates once we are installed on Annotum...
I think these are the two first steps Knol authors should know up from the beginning. Next short tutorial will answer your questions about multi-authors on WordPress-Annotium. Coming soon, stay tuned ;)
