  • Title: Features - UCDblogs
    Descriptive info: UCDBlogs runs on the wordpress.. org platform, which is one of the most widely used content management system and allows access to a huge library of open source and premium resources, including plugins, themes and widgets.. Some key features.. Full standards compliance.. — WordPress has gone to great lengths to make sure every bit of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C.. This is important not only for interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation.. WordPress Links.. - Links allow you to create, maintain, and update any number of blogrolls through your administration interface.. This is much faster than calling an external blogroll manager.. WordPress Themes.. — WordPress comes with a full theme system which makes designing everything from the simplest blog to the most complicated webzine a piece of cake, and you can even have multiple themes with totally different looks that you switch with a single click.. Have a new design every day.. Comments.. — Visitors to your site can leave comments on individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can comment on their own site.. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis..  ...   profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog.. You can optionally close comments for non-registered users.. There are also plugins that hide posts from lower level users.. Password Protected Posts.. — You can give passwords to individual posts to hide them from the public.. You can also have private posts which are viewable only by their author.. Intelligent text formatting.. — If you ve dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and validation.. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code.. Multiple authors.. — WordPress’ highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users.. For a full list of features please visit.. WordPress.. org.. If you have a question regarding a feature or some functionality not listed here that you wish to implement on a UCDblog, please feel to.. contact us..

To date over 2,000 patients have agreed to take a.. rapid test for HIV.. for a.. research programme in the Mater Hospital Emergency Department.. , run by the UCD HIV Molecular Research Group.. Media Services (UCD IT Services) have designed and developed an interactive questionnaire to gather information from these patients.. The questionnaire contains videos of a ’doctor’ asking questions.. The patients record their answers on a touch sensitive screen using a Dell tablet.. Both the language and technology are as simple as possible since participants may have low levels of English literacy and poor computer skills..  ...   questionnaire on a series of web pages, which run the video clips and display the questions in text, as well as audio.. The web pages have a simple, uncluttered interface and run full screen.. Media Services also developed a ‘back-end’ for test administration by research assistants.. Participants watch an introductory video and answer a few questions.. They then choose to take the test (or not).. If they take the test, they go on to answer further questions while waiting for their results.. The questionnaire branches at several points depending on the participant’s answer.. At the end of each test, a research assistant transfers the responses to the main database using an SD card.. A script wipes the patient responses from the tablet..
