An Important Note About Editing Access

important note

On-Campus editing requires a wired connection,
Off-Campus editing requires VPN connection.

When on-campus, you will need to have a wired connection to the campus network in order to login and edit your WordPress faculty Web. You will not be able to login to your WordPress faculty web, while on campus, using a CCRI wireless connection.
When off-campus, you will need to login to a VPN session before logging into your WordPress site.  Everything you need to know about VPN, plus the software download, is here: http://www.ccri.edu/it/network/vpn-overview.html

Check-out our new tutorial: “SSL VPN Client Installation Instructions“. (Mac version here.)

For further assistance, please call or e-mail the Help Desk: 401-825-1112 or helpdesk@ccri.edu

Please use your CCRI email address when posting comments on this or any other page in this site.  We will not respond to posts from individuals outside the CCRI community.

Welcome

WordPress Logo–to the CCRI WordPress Faculty Web

The new CCRI faculty Web is powered by a WordPress back-end. We are adopting the use of this web-based editing and publishing tool as an alternative to our current faculty Web publishing method which relies on FrontPage Server Extensions -a legacy technology which is no longer supported by Microsoft.

For faculty with existing Web sites

If you currently have a site on the ‘faculty.ccri.edu’ domain, we encourage you to migrate your site to the new WordPress faculty Web.  Please fill-out and submit this form.

For faculty who do not have a Web site

If you do not currently have a faculty Web site and would like to initiate one, please fill-out and submit this form and a basic site will be prepared for you. [Learn more]

Top 10 WordPress Plugins for 2012

WordPress plugin logoPosted in Search Engine Journal on December 11, 2012 by Chris Cree

With over 22,000 WordPress plugins in their Plugin Directory, writing a top 10 list is dangerous. After all, what standards should we use? Most downloads? Highest ratings?

Plugins all add different features so it’s hard to compare them objectively. For some projects one feature may be more important than another. Sometimes a specific feature may not even be wanted or needed on a project.

Therefore this list is simply the plugins that I like personally and found to be the most useful in my client projects over the last year. That leaves tons of room for debate. So if your favorite plugin isn’t in this list, leave a comment. Make your case why I should have included it.

Some of these plugins are pretty popular and you’ll be familiar with them. There may be one or two that are new to you. Most are freely available in the Plugin Directory. But I’m including a couple premium only plugins too. [Learn more]
