WordPress is a content management system with blogging features. It allows you to manage your website easily with plugins such as SlimStat, User Access Manager, Contact Form 7 and  Broken Links Checker.

WordPress Policy:

The IEEE WordPress hosting service is a Network type installation using subfolders to organize Sites. We host many Organizational Unit Sites under 1 installation of WordPress. We manage the one instance of WordPress, including the core files and essential Plugins. Our priority is keeping WordPress core files updated with the latest security fixes. Prior to updating WordPress, Site Administrators will be contacted two weeks in advance and shortly after the update. Should a Plugin stop working after an upgrade, the Site Administrator should contact the Plugin developer(s) for assistance.

If you would like to add Plugins to WordPress, please check that they are compatible up to the current installed version of WordPress and that they are essential to your business. Send the list of compatible Plugins to ewh-webmaster@ieee.org. Once the Plugins have been tested in QA, they will be installed on the production server and you will be notified of their availability.
