What is the WordPress tool?

WordPress allows you to create websites for course materials, blogs, portfolios, or other content in the University’s instance of the popular WordPress platform. Sites created with WordPress may be accessed directly through their web addresses, or through the WordPress tool in the corresponding sites in UVACollab.

WordPress sites are public by default, but can be restricted to the UVA community, to participants in the corresponding sites in UVACollab, or to site administrators only. For more information about access settings for WordPress sites, see How do I restrict site visibility?

Note: For instructions to add this or any other tool to your site, see How do I add a tool to my site?
