Click on the slideshow below to get started with a workshop about building websites on the CUNY Academic Commons. “The Commons”, as its more commonly known, is a WordPress- and BuddyPress-based platform for teaching, learning, and community-building. Though this platform is currently restricted to the community of the City University of New York, the instructions about WordPress are applicable to other platforms on which you might host a WordPress-based website, like Reclaim Hosting.
This slideshow was prepared for a hands-on workshop about building websites on the CUNY Academic Commons. They have been refined slightly to allow a user to walk through the workshop on their own, and they can help you understand how to set up a Commons account and create and edit a website using WordPress.
