URL Shortener FTW! (Response)

Added by jesslyndw, Response for Adding YOURLs- a URL Shortener to Your Domain Activity

I was forever bouncing into my bitly account to track traffic on my shortlinks, it’s fantastic to have it all rolled in together with my own site!  It did go glitchy on me when I tried to use capitals in the Custom short URL, but worked fine with lowercase. For example techforteaching.ca/techday2019 worked but techforteaching.ca/TechDay2019… Read more »

Done and Dusted! (Response)

Added by jesslyndw, Response for Running Your Sites under SSL Activity

I blew in and added certificates to my core domain and a bunch of subdomains, and then was worried that I didn’t see the https:// in front of my WordPress sites – lesson learned to read to the bottom of the page before panicing!

I think I may have thought too long and hard about how to pull a SPLOT into my site.  I love these formats, like, real hard. So I built a SPLOT as a sharing section of my site, where faculty could contribute their own stories and examples of how they’re using tech to teach.  Hoping… Read more »

This was a neat task. this year I added an email and checked out the webmail app. I think forwarding an email makes the most sense. Who needs another email! The hardest part was adding the screen shot and remembering how to find the URL for it!! 🙂

A place to share my photos (Response)

Added by Lisa Koster, Response for Build a WordPress SPLOT Activity

Although I enabled the posting of pictures by others on this page, it could also be used as a way to share pictures, similar to that of Instagram. It’s a great place for people to share photos with one another, although the size limits is too low if you plan to share full resolution photos. … Read more »

Added by Lisa Koster, Response for Building a WordPress Calling Card Site Activity
