Our goal is to provide YU faculty an easy way to create and maintain a simple website using a web-based Content Management System (CMS). We have chosen WordPress as it has an easy-to-use interface and is scalable to accommodate many websites on campus.

Benefits

  • Free. No charge to use the service.
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Web-based editing, no desktop software needed
  • Built-in Search
  • Embed images and video for a multi-media experience
  • Website is hosted for you

Limitations

  • Limited to editing via the WYSIWYG toolbar (with some basic HTML allowed)
  • No programming access.
    No FTP access.
  • If you have a website created in Dreamweaver or another web development program, you will not be able to upload your HTML pages. All of your content (Posts and Pages) reside in a database. You can recreate the pages and copy and paste the content.
