After we released the UT web templates in March, we began developing a custom UT WordPress theme.
WordPress is one of the content management solutions chosen by the Office of Communications and Marketing for departments and units at UT. WordPress began as blogging software but has evolved into a full-fledged content management system. Hundreds of high-profile companies’ websites run WordPress, including many higher education websites.
Units and departments within Vanderbilt, Boston University, the University of Virginia, Duke University, Harvard University, UC Berkeley, University of Wisconsin, and more, are using WordPress and developing custom themes that are in line with each university’s visual identity.
Our custom UT WordPress theme is based on the UT web templates for university websites. The web templates and this WordPress theme share a strong and easily identifiable visual consistency.
Right now, our UT WordPress theme is in the final stages of development and testing. We hope to have it available for download on the Office of Communications and Marketing resources page within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
