University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing creates and maintains WordPress sites for law publications, journals, and scholarly websites. We’ll walk through our process of building a WordPress publication, and how we decide when WordPress is the right tool for the job. We’ll describe the work and tools associated with WordPress: hosting and maintenance, plug-ins and security issues, design and build work, analytics and what additional work is required of the journal’s staff. Using our WordPress-based journals and sites as examples we’ll highlight how different tools and designs have been implemented. 20-30 minutes of the presentation time will be allocated to Q&A from attendees. Our developer will be on the call, so please bring detailed questions, and we can demonstrate portions of the work live as needed.
