Blog Editing

WordPress

The majority of the University's blogs are powered by a blog application called WordPress, and are hosted on the University’s servers. This means that the blog web address (URL) will be blogs.adelaide.edu.au/nameofblog.

As part of the ongoing migration to the Drupal CMS, all University blogs will eventually be integrated into Drupal sites. As a result, no further upgrades are planned to the WordPress platform, and no new standalone blogs will be created.

A blog differs from a "normal" website in a number of ways. Blogs are usually used for timely content that is updated frequently (such as news and events), often only focus on a specific topic, and readers may have the ability to engage with the content by commenting. Individual articles on a blog are called “posts” or “entries”. The most recent posts or entries published will be displayed first on the page.

Anyone can read your blog, but only approved authors can maintain and post content on a blog.
