Blogs & Websites
VSU faculty, staff, student organizations, and departments can use the WordPress environment as a supplemental web-designing resource and as an alternative to personal sites hosted at mypages.valdosta.edu. WordPress, however, is not a replacement for department/program sites developed in Cascade that are published to Valdosta State University main site, www.valdosta.edu. VSU wants to avoid duplicating efforts or information and provide a consistent experience for our users.
Individual VSU students have the option to host personal pages on the MyPages server.
WordPress is customizable by the use of themes and plugins. In addition to the default themes, users may purchase additional themes/plugins (must provide copy of the invoice to prove ownership); however, the theme or plugin will be subjected to review (and could be rejected) by VSU Web Services. Web Services must install and assess themes/plugins users wish to use. It is advisable to discuss your needs with Web Services as the plugins/themes you want may already be installed and you simply need access to them.

Web Services will then contact you with additional information.
