Creating Websites and Blogs

If you are interested in creating a website or blog, please contact Dwayne Hunter. While DASNR IT offers services that enable websites and blogs in use by over 200 OSU websites, we also work with your local department and with OSU IT to provide the best solution depending upon your needs. 

We use Plone as our content management system (CMS). While it has been our platform of choice for many years, we also use Wordpress in specific situations.

Plone provides a useful tool to create forms for use on your website. (See the link below.) As a calendar solution, we use Trumba and have provided instructional material.
