A blog (i.e. weblog) is a staff member, student, departmental, or school web site composed of short posts that are arranged chronologically. 4J uses blog software by WordPress. WordPress has a complete online set of documentation on how to use the WordPress blog software. This documentation can be found at WordPress User Documentation.
