Get Started on the Right Foot with Blogs

If you’re just getting started using UoM blogs you’ll want to head to our Support page.  There you can find Edublogs Getting Started site and other useful aides.

Blogs are a great tool, but having knowledge on how to use them makes this tool even more powerful.  Happy blogging!

Blog Dashboard Update Complete

I wanted to report that the updates to the Dashboard have now gone through. Please notice the visual differences in the top and left side bars, as well as on your blog dashboard.  This update came from Edublogs due to a new update of WordPress.  WordPress is the system blogs.memphis.edu runs on.

All tools remain in the same layout and location with the update, but the environment has a more modern and user friendly look.

The biggest improvement is that the dashboard is completely mobile, touch, and tablet friendly, meaning it is much easier to write a new post or manage a site from any web browser on any device – no special app needed!

Edublogs is also in the process of updating the screenshots on the Edublogs support site.

If you have any questions, please contact the umTech Helpdesk at 901.678.8888 or email umblogs@memphis.edu.

Dashboard Upgrades Coming Soon!

Edublogs Campus Networks is rolling out the latest version of WordPress in the coming days. WordPress is the system blogs.memphis.edu runs on.

Upgrades will continue to roll out in waves and there’s not a specific day/time to know when our site will pass through. You will know when our site is complete when you first log in, as the dashboard will have a different look and feel. Everything will remain in the same layout and location, but the environment will be more modern and user friendly.

The biggest improvement is that the dashboard will be completely mobile, touch, and tablet friendly, meaning it is much easier to write a new post or manage a site from any web browser on any device – no special app needed!
