Blogs (words.usask.ca)

The multi-blog service provides a large number of blogs with a basic level of service to support the U of S’s academic, business and research efforts.

Getting Started

Log in to Wordpress

You can access Blogs by logging into the blog service with your NSID and password.

Request a blog

Send a request to web@usask.ca with the following info:

  • Your name and NSID (e.g. abc123)
  • If the request is for a class, please provide the name of the class
  • Blog Title - What you want your blog to be called. This can be changed by you after the blog is created.
  • Blog URL - What URL you want for your blog. It can contain only lowercase letters and numbers (NO spaces NO punctuation). This CANNOT be changed after it is created. They all start with words.usask.ca/ . We do not guarantee that the URL will be the one you provide, but we will work with you on coming up with an appropriate alternative.
  • Optionally, any other information that you feel may be relevant to properly creating your blog

Limitations

This service is not a standard, single user-blog and there are some limitations when you use a multi-blog:

Plugins
  • Plugins must be installed on a global basis, by the central administrators of the server.
  • The plugin or theme must be multi-blog compatible.
  • Plugins that pose a security risk or interfere with the functioning of the service will not be installed. 
Themes
  • Themes must be installed by the central administrators. Individual blog administrators do not have privileges to install or update themes.
  • Themes must be multi-blog compatible and not pose any security risks.
  • There are pre-built themes to choose from as well as a university theme available.
