WordPress Blogs

WordPress Blogs are websites built in a popular content management system with a generic URL (yourURL.wordpress.ncsu.edu), available to any faculty, staff, or student at the university.

Cost

Free.

Use Cases

  • Personal blogs for students, faculty, and staff
  • Class-related web projects
  • Student groups or meet-ups (official or unofficial)

Best Practices

The WordPress Blog environment should not be used for departmental sites due to the constrictions on configuration and the URL structure.

WordPress Blogs may be removed without warning after a year of not being used. Archival, or critical university data should not be stored in this environment.
