How to log in to WordPress/UO Blogs sites

Listen to this article:

Purpose

This article will guide users through the process of logging in to their UO Blogs-based WordPress sites by way of two similar but different methods and a guide on how to add existing users of the service to such sites.

Process

There are two primary methods for logging on to your site:

Method One

Click the Log In link on the upper-left of the browser window

Sign in using your Duck ID and password by clicking on the Use My Duck ID button.

Then, you will arrive at the Dashboard for your site(s)

Note: You may have to click on View My Sites if you have access to multiple sites (as seen below)

Method Two

Similar to Method One above, this will give you access to your site but through the UO Blogs main website. Go to blogs.uoregon.edu/ then click on the Login tab:

 

Then continue to proceed through the steps of Method One as described above.

Once logged in, you’ll see the administrative toolbar above the site header which will allow you to add more content or return to the site dashboard (as in the image below for CASIT Blog administrators).

Adding users to a site hosted on UO Blogs (for site administrators)

Most CAS departments, programs, and institutes have their websites hosted on UO Blogs.

In order for users to be added, they have to sign-in to the service once in order to create a service token that is connected to the user’s Duck ID account. To acquire the service token, follow the steps described in Method Two above. Once authenticated, the new user can create their own site or be added to any other site by site administrators.

Administrators can add users to their sites by going to the Users > Add Existing option of their site’s dashboard.

UO Blogs Dashboard with Users then Add Existing highlighted

From there, administrators can add users who have authenticated with the service by entering the @uoregon.edu email of the person they wish to add then assign a role for their access on the site.

For more information on roles within WordPress, you can consult the WordPress Codex on Roles and Capabilities.

Add the @uoregon.edu email for the new user and their desired role. Click Add Existing User to proceed.

The Add Existing User screen with Email Address and Role fields highlighted. 1. Enter the @uoregon.edu email address then 2. Assign the desired role for the new user.

Once entered, the user will be added to your site. If you do not happen to see this message, ensure that the new user has created their token for the service.

The user has been added to your site. Success!
