Have you ever made a change to a PDF or Word Document hosted on your WordPress site, only to upload the new version and find that the URL has changed? The Marketing Web Team has added a “Replace Media” option to the UW Theme, which will allow you to upload new versions of the same document and keep the original URL.


Embed a video into your WordPress page or post

Videos are a great way to enhance your pages and posts. Our current WordPress theme makes it easy to embed YouTube and Vimeo videos by using only a URL, while embedding UWTV videos requires a few extra steps.

This is a list of plugins currently available for WordPress sites hosted by the Marketing Web Team. These plugins have been vetted by our developers and are already installed, but may need to be activated before you can use them on your site. If there is a plugin that you would like to use on this list, email uweb@uw.edu and let us know the name of the plugin you want activated and the URL of your site.

Did you know that you can embed a smaller version of the Campus Map right into your UW Theme WordPress site? This map is interactive and will even let users find directions from any point on campus (or a specified address) straight to your building or parking lot.
