The WordPress team in the office of University Advancement maintains a multi-site WordPress install as a way to manage website content for many Wake Forest departments. With that CMS (Content Management System) comes a common design theme. This newest version of the theme is based on WordPress’ Gutenberg builder.

Because Wake Forest relies on many content managers across the University, the WordPress team offers this training guide for using the system. We hope you find the answer to your question in this guide, if not, please use this request form to ask your question. Also, consider signing up for a live training or view our pre-recorded training playlist.

NOTE: If you do not have a site that is running this WordPress install and theme, some of the information in this guide will not be accurate for your site.
