How Can I Create a Site?

  1. Login to the Commons at using the Login links in the upper right area of the page.
  2. While on the homepage, navigate to and select the “Sites” tab, which will bring you to the Sites Directory page. Click the “Create a Site” button next to the heading.
  3. You should now be at the site creation page. First choose a domain name for your site (this will be your unique URL), for example, lib1201 (a course number), then enter a title for your blog. (* The title of your site can always be changed, but you cannot edit your domain name (URL).)
  4. Adjust “Site Visibility” according to your privacy needs.  You can always change this setting later if you want by going the Settings>>Reading in your dashboard.
  5. Click the Create Site button.
  6. Congratulations, you have just created a site!

This screencast will also walk you through the process of creating a site on the CUNY Academic Commons.
