Get a WordPress Site

WordPress LogoFor CCRI faculty with existing Web sites:

If you currently have a site on the old faculty web at:, which requires FrontPage or Expression Web to edit, (not supported by IT dept.) and would like to migrate your site to the new WordPress Faculty Web, which is entirely web-based and requires no software to edit (supported by the IT dept. and MUCH easier to learn), then please e-mail with the subject line: “I want to migrate my faculty website to WordPress“.

IMPORTANT: You will need to log in to a Virtual Private network (VPN) session before logging into you WordPress faculty web from off-campus so contact the IT Service Desk to make sure you have a VPN account. [More about off-campus editing] [More about VPN]

For CCRI 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, then watch for the following items:

  • A basic site will be prepared for you which will incorporate your CCRI username, for example: “”.
    • You will receive an initial e-mail notification that a site has been created as soon as we begin building it.
  • As soon as you get that initial email, email the IT Service Desk making sure that “Requesting WordPress training” is in the subject line.
    • Please Note: In order to login to your site from off-campus, you will need to log into a Virtual Private network (VPN) session before logging into your WordPress faculty web so email the IT Service Desk to make sure you have a VPN account. [More about VPN]
  • When your site is ready for you to begin editing, you will receive another e-mail from Web Services stating it’s ready for you.
  • At around the same time, you should also get an e-mail from one of the Instructional Support Team members, with information about your training session.
  • Your site is "live" the moment Web Services creates it, but when you have edited your site to a point where you feel it should be added to the Faculty Web Site Directory, send an e-mail to with the subject line: “Please add my website to the ‘Faculty Website Directory’“.
