Boy Scouts of America Pack 48 blog

Boy Scouts of America Greece Pack 48 website

As a local Boy Scouts of America pack leader, Jon, wanted a website where he could easily disseminate information on upcoming pack and den activities as well as post pictures from those events.

I set Jon up with a WordPress blog that allows him to create and edit all the content. Author accounts for each den leader allow them to be responsible for all the content pertaining to their groups, offloading that task from Jon. Gallery photo management software allows Jon and the other den leaders to upload photos and create/edit albums. Parents and others, with the proper permissions, can browse the albums and even send photos to services like Snapfish, Shutterfly, etc.

Best of all, WordPress and Gallery are free open-source applications. Which helped Jon get a website with loads of well-supported features and still stay within his budget.
