WordPress is a software program for the web that allows users to create a website or blog. There are several interesting features, including hundreds of themes that can be chosen to decorate and personalize your blog or site, a stats system that is designed to give you the most updated stats on how many people are visiting your blog, where they are coming from, which posts are most popular, and which search engine terms are sending people to your blog, and a spam blocker, using Akismet, which will prevent spammers from leaving comments on your blog.
Request a Site
To create a WordPress website supported through LSU, users are required to go through LSU University Relations. There are several "Consulting Questionnaires" that are designed to gather enough information to provide the user with a website that is most appropriate for their specific needs.
After the questionnaires have been filled out, users will work directly with Ms. Lori Kemp to develop the look of their site and to determine the best resource for their site (between WCMS and Wordpress). Once their website is set up, Ms. Mary Elizabeth Hart will be in contact for training/editing purposes.
(Note: After you set up a website, use their PAWS ID to access your site.)
