Open Help-Desk Session: September 2016

The PWP help-desk style training is meant for you to bring your questions, comments, and concerns, and have a PWP expert work with you on solutions.

Security Change for PWP Siteowners

As scheduled in the July 2016 news post:

Starting on August 15th 2016, all PWP websites will require an on-campus connection through the VPN service for any admin user off campus.

  • Any user administering their website on campus will see no change.
  • Any user administering their website off campus must use the Georgia Tech VPN service to access PWP administrative pages.

We realize this means site administrators will require the extra step of connecting to the VPN, but the frequency of successful WordPress exploits and site defacements convinces us that restricting administrative access is a necessary step.

This change is now in place for all PWP websites.

New Plugin – GT Branding v0.1

The PWP team is proud to announce GT Branding – a new plugin designed solely to easily apply Georgia Tech branding on a PWP website.

If you require or want a Georgia Tech header and/or footer on your website, enable this plugin to provide this functionality.

Virtual Office Hours: August 2016

PWP Virtual Office Hours is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and graduate students to ask questions and receive help from the comfort of their computer screen. By using video conferencing software provided by campus, users can ask questions, show their desktop, and receive help without having to leave their office.
