Luggage as a sub-site of another CMS

How to set up Luggage within a Wordpress root:

  • Separate the DocumentRoot(s):
    Luggage sites should be installed outside of the wordpress document root. For example, on one LAS web server, we are doing this in /srv/luggage/<deptcode>/<site>.
  • The Virtualhost should be modified to add an alias for the site under (and yet outside of) the wordpress installation.

About Luggage

Luggage is a platform for creating websites, targeted at academic websites for departments and researchers.

The platform is built on Drupal and consists of features that come with configuration. For example, the People feature contains a prebuilt content type appropriate for displaying a group of people divided into subgroups of your own choosing (faculty, staff, etc.) along with a view. Here's an example.

In this tutorial, we will cover how to edit content. Sometimes, you will notice that your content has information that needs to be updated. Or perhaps you created an Announcement with a typo in the body text. Also, at the end of this tutorial, we will discuss how you can view revisions (if they are enabled on your Luggage site).

This tutorial uses the pages content type as an example, but each content type will have similar instructions.
