College Spun

College Spun is a news website featuring original college sports reporting. It provides a framework for sportswriters, including on-campus students, to contribute and manage articles about the world of college athletics and related people and events.

Blue Rattle constructed a multi-tiered publishing framework within WordPress to support this enterprise. It provides the ability to manage individual college pages by separate communities of student editors and contributing writers. The administration area allows each college to publish their own section of articles and images, while the overall site supports intermural features and navigation across colleges and conferences.

Features include image slideshows, ad integration, custom banner support, and an extensive administration infrastructure.
