About this Project

Currently all user sites are hosted at clas.ufl.edu/users and these sites range from very simple profile pages with course and contact information to more complex sites with many pages and custom designs. Personal web drives have to be mapped to machines in order to access files.

The main way to edit pages is using the free Kompozer web page editor or by paying for software such as Adobe Dreamweaver.

Maintaining these sites requires time and the cost of training, software, and support. CLAS has offered downloadable HTML templates, but static pages can’t provide newer dynamic features such as the ability to have a blog or integration with social media.

The easiest way to deploy those features is using a CMS like WordPress. See CLAS IT Web Services for more details
