Guide for Departmental Users
Welcome to WordPress! Our hope is that the WordPress content management system will help you to achieve your department’s online goals, while supporting you with built-in tools and templates that reflect the University’s brand, and best practices on the web.
To get a new site on URI’s web server, fill out the web form at http://wordpress.uri.edu/new-account-form/. On that form, you will be able to request the URL you wish to have (for example, http://web.uri.edu/departmentname/).
All URLs on the WordPress server begin with http://web.uri.edu. We attempt to have a level of consistency in URL names, so we may offer some alternatives to your requested URL. By default, your site will be allotted 25MB of space on the web server. If you need more, get in touch with Web Communications.
If you need functionality that is not currently available, we want to hear from you. Email Web Communications and we’d be happy to discuss your needs, and how we can accommodate them.
