WordPress is perhaps the leading open-source blogging software. It offers the possibility of a customised blog site and can support integration with USO logins. The product makes an ideal choice for a school blog site by offering traceability of user posts. This makes the task of general management and policing easier, which is particularly useful in a school environment. Logged in users may be allowed to post new content but settings can dictate that everything must be approved by a moderator prior to publication.
The Atomwide blog site is an example of an authenticated WordPress site where any USO user can log in and post comments or articles. A school that requires an easy-to-use and easy-to-manage blog site accessed by USO account holders can request further information from Atomwide.
