This is How We Do It: WordPress for Departmental Websites -C6

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

So, you’re thinking about using WordPress for your departmental website(s)? Teaching & Learning with Technology recently relaunched its website and several of its sub-sites with WordPress. We’ll talk about the objectives we set out to accomplish and challenges we faced, as well as common goals relevant to all Penn State websites, including accessibility and branding. We’ll highlight tools, themes, and plugins that we used to build and theme (migration from other cms’s, implementation), publish (workflow, marketing, social media), and improve user experience (mobile-friendly, findability). We’ll discuss how we use WordPress’s theme management to unify look-and-feel as well as allow flexibility for site owners to customize their own sites. You’ll also learn about how you can use sites.psu.edu to create a website without having to worry about technical details of installing and maintaining WordPress yourself.
