WordPress lets users without programming experience create websites, blogs, and online portfolios.
The user interface is simple, and the site itself is highly customizable through and . UVA maintains its own WordPress server called SHANTI Pages, which is free to the university community through the WordPress tool in UVaCollab. Users can create and manage their own site, which we recommend doing outside of UVaCollab. Previous uses of WordPress at UVA include course sites, personal portfolios, and topical sites.

As of 2/7/18, when you create a WordPress page, members are automatically “Authors”.
If you do not want your students or UVaCollab members to be authors, you must create a group within UVaCollab and use it to manage their role on the WordPress page. Follow the steps here.
You can't change privacy settings for media you upload to WordPress. Once a user adds a file to the Media Library, any other user (regardless of role) can use that file. Media is also accessible to anyone in the world with the URL, and can be indexed by search engines.
