Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Sites at Penn State and WordPress, from basic WordPress features to theme and plugin set-up instructions.


The TLT Accessibility group has tested WordPress and all of the themes available on the platform for accessibility (assuring that anyone can access the content, regardless of the device being used). All of the themes provided have been improved as much as possible for accessibility based on their recommendations.

With regard to content (headers, titles, images, pdfs, videos, etc.) and any customizations, it is the user’s responsibility to optimize content for accessibility.
