Web guidelines for content editors: WordPress

WordPress is a content management system. It stores the pages of our site in a database and then dynamically serves up those page upon request. Primarily, this affords the following:

  • Simplified content creation/editing – We can use the web browser from anywhere to create and edit content in our web sites.
  • Content is king – It creates a container in which our content resides allowing content creators/editors to focus upon the content.

Most all the sites at www.lib.uiowa.edu and blog.lib.uiowa.edu are in WordPress.

For questions about WordPress contact LIT at lib-it-help@list.uiowa.edu.
