Note: Formidable Pro is a plugin that is part of the UO Blogs offering to all associated with the University by using your DuckID. If you do not yet have a UO Blogs site, follow this link.

Login to your UO Blogs account using your DuckID and password, then go the site’s Dashboard

  • Example of your site:”yourname”/wp-admin
    • “yourname” is your user name used when signing up for a site.

Note: Some users may have multiple sites through UO Blogs. If so, you will be directed to a general Dashboard upon sign-in. You will then need to select which site you would like to directly edit.

  • My Sites (marked in red): Allows the user to go to all sites in their purview
  • Blog Name (marked in green): Shows which Dashboard you are in. The example below is in Mike’s Blog.
