What is WordPress?

WordPress is web-based content management software used to create blogs and websites without having to know HTML, CSS or other code. The McDaniel College Community site is a WordPress site hosted on campus. Websites and blogs created on the college hosted site will have blog.mcdaniel.edu as part of their URL.

Use a McDaniel WordPress site to:

  • Create class blogs and websites.
  • Share department news with current and prospective students.
  • Highlight club activities and special events.
  • Create student blogs.
  • Create portfolios of your work.
  • Express yourself!
