Setting Up WordPress Project Site

General Instructions:

  1. Recognize that each “page” of the site needs context — this is one reason why I had you write two papers, so that each could “stand alone”
  2. The annotated bibliography is its own page
  3. Each page of the project (a minimum of two, past & present-future) should have its own sources cited at the bottom. Remember: no need for hanging indents but please use APA for narrative citing format and for the reference list

Stand-Alone Site
Rationale: experience using WordPress as a content management system for a website, not a blog. Minimum number of pages: past, present-future, annotated bibliography, about, (unused) blog

  1. Log In
  2. Go to WordPress.com
  3. Left hand column, look for “Register another blog
    wordpress_new_blog
  4. Pick a name
  5. Pick a design that is very readable
  6. Widgets: Pages, Blogroll (Links), Meta. Unless you are going to use this as a site to blog about the topic, you won’t want any widgets related to blogging. Use Blogroll (Links) to provide links to your blog, this site, other resources related to your topic.
  7. Create a stand-alone page for the home page
    • Pages -> New -> Home
    • Pages -> New -> Blog
    • Settings -> Reading -> Front Page Displays …
  8. Provide information on the “about” page about you and this project/course
  9. Recognize that each “page” of the site needs context — this is one reason why I had you write two papers, so that each could “stand alone”
  10. The annotated bibliography is its own page
  11. Each page of the project (a minimum of two, past & present-future) should have its own sources cited at the bottom. Remember: no need for hanging indents but please use APA for narrative citing format and for the reference list

Integrated Site:
If you want everything in one place, and want this paper to be a “sub-section” of your course blog. Minimum number of pages: “home” (contents), past, present-future, annotated bibliography

  1. Log In
  2. Make sure that your blog design is very readable for long blocks of text (light on dark does not meet this requirement)
  3. Provide information on the “about” page about you
  4. Create a new page that will be the project home; provide information on this page about the project/course; provide links to the project parts (past, present-future, annotated bibliography)
  5. Create the pages that are for the project; each will have, as it parent page, the project home page:
