The UMaine WordPress Content Management System (CMS) is available to UMaine departments and organizations. This guide will show you how to get started building and managing your website in the new CMS. Also refer to the sample websites below to see the official UMaine templates in action:

The CMS does not require website software like FrontPage or Dreamweaver. Instead, you’ll manage your web content in an administration area using your web browser. You can access your website anywhere you have an internet connection. Knowledge of web programming languages such as HTML or CSS is helpful but not required to build a website in WordPress.

For questions on this guide, or to schedule a formal training on the WordPress CMS, please contact Brandi McCann at 581.4790 or Mike Kirby at 581.3744.
