Requesting a site
WordPress is just one of the web publishing platforms offered at the University of Melbourne. It has some particular strengths, which make it more suitable than other platforms for certain situations. It’s quick to set up and get started, and easy to use, but there are trade-offs in flexibility and support.
Ideally, though, we don’t want people requesting WordPress sites because it’s a great platform (crazy eh?). What we want is people to request a site based on their needs, and allow us to recommend the best platform to fulfil those needs. It’s a subtle, but important difference.
So, head along to the new site request form, provide us with as much information as you can about the audience of the site, and what they will want to get from it, as well as owns the content, and who will be maintaining it. We’ll take it from there.
