Administrators have access to advanced features of WordPress. Most of the COFA websites are administered by the COFA Web team, so that it’s easier for content owners to focus on editing the content. We are here to help.
Instructions in this section are for the few content owners who have been granted Administrator access for one of the following reasons:
- The website requires the assignment of many editors, such as student assistants.
- The website is using the UT Responsive theme and has complex menu navigation.
- A content owner has shown an entrepreneurial interest in developing the website and has proven that the level of commitment will be sustained.
Administrators have access to break things. The COFA Web team has made sure the websites comply with all legal requirements and policies of the university. Some page layout options are available but please do not change the Theme.
If you desire to explore the advanced features not included in the instructions on this site we recommend you request a test site for experimentation. If you discover something that you would like to implement, please contact us.
