Who shouldn’t use Sites@WCNR?

Those who want additional customization (such as a specific URL, adherence to specific branding requirements, or more customized graphic design or functionality) should contact WCNR IT staff. Custom approaches to WordPress (including graphic design, other themes and plug-ins and custom URLs) can be accommodated through other campus and external service offerings, which may require payment for development, design, hosting or other project costs.

Students who are considering using WordPress for online portfolios and sites that they would like to access beyond graduation, should consider developing a site in wordpress.com as their CSU eID access to Sites@WCNR will expire soon after graduation. Students nearing graduation may also consider exporting their site from Sites@WCNR and importing into wordpress.com or other WordPress service provider.
