Non-COB Websites

Personal websites. Visit WordPress.NMSU.Edu, an ICT web hosting service provided free to anyone with a myNMSU account.

Student organization websites. Student organizations may get a WordPress website through NMSU. [Example: AITP.]
Faculty advisors:

  • Plan ahead with your students about why the organization needs the site and its content, function, audience, and upkeep.
  • You should be an administrator for the website along with the student(s) who will run the site.
  • You will need the password and access to the site so you can give it to the upcoming student officer who will update and maintain the site.
  • You will also have access to the photos (media library), etc.

Request a new student organization website:

  1. Go to http://systems.nmsu.edu.
  2. Click on “Requests” and then “Enterprise WordPress Account.”
  3. Fill out the form requesting webspace and WordPress.
  4. They’ll take care of everything and will get back in touch with you.

When you hear back from systems.nmsu.edu and have access to the new site, go to your old site and view it on your browser. Note: Old websites can’t be directly imported into the new site.

Text:

  1. Copy any text you want to use from the old site.
  2. Paste it (using the “Text” view, not the “Visual” view) into the new site. The “Text” view may help strip out any invisible extraneous code that could come with copying the text on the old site.

Photos:

  1. Right click on a photo.
  2. Select “Save image as.”
  3. Save it where students running the site will have access to photos.

THIS IS IMPORTANT! When you are done and don’t need your old website PLEASE notify our BC Computer Lab so they can take it off the server. Their contact and location info is at http://business.nmsu.edu/departments/bc-computer-lab.
