Our existing blog.inf.ed.ac.uk has been around for a while. It started as a test service and has evolved into what it is today.
This is a fresh install of WordPress, without any of the legacy configuration of the original blog.inf kept just because we inherited it!
We’re managing this service differently from blog.inf, so it may be a little wobbly while we figure things out. At the moment people have to request a blog on the service, rather than being self-service like blog.inf. Just so we can explain the risks.
Update March 2019 – Now that the University’s central blogging service is up and running, we now expect request for new blogs to be diverted to it – blogs.ed.ac.uk
