Access your site

Your sites have been pre-created based on a site template. To access your site:

  1. login to blogs.evergreen.edu
  2. navigate to My Sites in the upper left for a listing of all sites connected to your login

Writing and Managing your content

  • Get Published - Pages and Posts
  • Categories and Tags - all of your posts should be added to a category otherwise they will not be easy to find on your site.
  • Working with tables in your post
    • If you're working on your individual Terroir Journal site, you will need to activate the plugin TinyMCE before you will see the add table option.

Images, video and linked files

  • Embed video from Vimeo or YouTube by pasting the the URL link into the content area of your page/post
  • Link to a file
  • Audio

Customize Your Site

Recommend Themes

Hueman

This is default theme your site is already set to use. This theme has a flexible Theme Options panel that let's you customize many components of the site including:

  • page layout
  • styling: background colors, font, etc.
  • header logo


Additional themes

If you feel compelled to use a different theme than Heuman, the following themes will work well on mobile devices (they are responsive) and make good usage of navigation (Menus) and widgets so you can design a site where viewers can easily find and interact with your content.

  • Baskerville (custom header image)
  • Editor
  • Hemingway (custom header image)
  • Ignite
  • Padhang
  • Tracks (works best with featured images saved to posts)
  • Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen, Twenty Fourteen, Twenty Fifteen, Twenty Sixteen


Additional themes may not have Theme Options but can be modified by Appearance > Customize

Sidebars (Widgets)

Sidebar content in WordPress is controlled via "Widgets". Often times if you don't anything to your side bar a default set of "widgets" will appear. You can change this by adding your own widgets.
