SEO & Google Analytics

  • Meta tags, sitemaps and real-time notifications to major search engines are built into your website at launch.
  • Content owners can access Analytics reports by going to https://analytics.google.com/ (sign in using your MyGS account).
  • Content owners may request access for additional users via MyTechHelp.

Simple, intuitive content management – no HTML knowledge required – use the built-in editors to format your content, add links, edit and insert images, embed videos and more.

Bootstrap-ready – built on Twitter Bootstrap, a popular front-end development framework, you can use most Bootstrap features in your WordPress pages.  Georgia Southern specific classes are also available for you to use.

 

Icon Sets – use icons from Glyphicon and Font Awesome libraries.

Navigation Menu – use the simple drop & drag interface to add pages, custom links and categories to your navigation menus.

News – post news about your college and display on your homepage and departmental sites.  All WordPress sites come with a built-in RSS feed that can be used in an RSS widget on any department sites.

Media Library – houses all images & documents uploaded to site. Use naming conventions to make search easier. All images must be optimized for the web (resized & resolution 72ppi).

Layout Options – all sites include a variety of layout options that can be used on any page – home page or interior pages.  You select a page’s layout from the Template drop down menu in the WordPress Page Editor’s Page Attributes box.
Here are descriptions of each layout/template:

  1. Home Page – this is the standard college home page layout. See example >
  2. Default Template – vertical navigation menu on the left side of the page, a content area, no bottom widgets.
