WordPress is an open-source website/blog creation tool. It is one of the most well-known and easy-to-use blogging platforms and content management systems (CMS) available today. However, one of the chief concerns with such a widely-used and extensible tool such as WordPress is that it is very vulnerable to hacking and other exploitation. In order to protect users and site administrators from these vulnerabilities while still affording the ability to leverage the hallmark features of the platform, LTS has contracted with CampusPress.

Word Press allows you to create sophisticated and dynamic sites with the latest designs. 

This brief guide is aimed at helping users get started with Lehigh's instance of WordPress, hosted by CampusPress, highlighting Lehigh-specific features and procedures, and connecting users with useful documentation and in-depth guides provided by CampusPress.


When you are logged in, the top-menu bar will appear and remain constant for as long as your session is active, or until you log out. This menu gives you a quick access to navigate to all the sites and their respective dashboards to which you have some level of editing rights. To the left of "My Sites" is the name of the site/blog you are currently on, and will also reveal a submenu of additional options. Clicking "Customize" will bring up a left sidebar (shown below) of most common customization tasks for a web site.
