The Cornell University Blogs service provides an online publishing platform using CampusPress. CampusPress has WordPress's ease of use and most popular features, while keeping the service economical by focusing on providing only those features of greatest use to its entire community. Security and maintenance updates are managed by the vendor, making the CU Blogs service an ideal option for Cornell faculty and staff looking for a fast, easy way to publish content and manage comments from across the web, using a standard set of features.
- Choose themes and add plugins and widgets from a standard collection.
- Explore a degree of adjustments for the look, feel, and features on a site.
- Custom theme development is no longer an option for CUBlogs. If a custom theme is required, it is recommended to contact Custom Development and use an alternative hosting service, such as Pantheon.
For a list of available plugins, see Default User Plugins. Periodically the vendor makes changes to the environment and is not always able to provide advanced notice and communications. At times, the vendor may also need to remove a plugin from the service, which could impact your sites. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
