Welcome to the College of William & Mary WordPress site

Welcome to the W&M WordPress environment. If you are not familiar with WordPress or would like some help getting started, please use the menu at the top of this page to find the information you need. There’s information for site creators as well as for content creators.

Creating a Site:

Site creation involves building the framework of a site and should be considered carefully. The basics of site creation are explained here: https://sites.wm.edu/getting-started/

If you would like a consultation about how to best set up your site’s framework, please contact your eLearning Specialist. You can find a list of eLearning Specialists on the APeL website here: https://www.wm.edu/offices/apel/

Anyone with a W&M username and password can log in and create their own sites. If you’d like to watch a video course on WordPress, you can visit the Lynda.com WordPress tutorial here. You will need to use your W&M login.

Editing and Adding Content to an Existing Site:

There are several issues involved with adding content to an existing site. If you are a student who is just adding posts or pages to an existing site and need guidance, please visit the Lynda.com tutorial here. Sections 1 and 2 of the tutorial deal with creating your site, so you can begin with Section 3 on building content
