CMS 3710: Portfolio web site

Students will create a template web site at WordPress.com, which I will evaluate both in desktop and mobile settings. (For mobile, I will use Google Chrome browser’s Developer > Developer Tools > Toggle Device to emulate an iPhone 6/7/8.)

WordPress Site

When complete, the site should

  1. Use WordPress.com and the  provided username (e.g. cmsstudent000@wordpress.com)
  2. Include no identifying information about the student
  3. Include the site title  “Student Portfolio” and the tagline “A showcase of my work”
  4. Use a WordPress theme other than 2014
  5. Use a theme that communicates “Creative Professional”
  6. Include an “About” page that includes Greeking text
  7. Include four Pages, titled to indicate your talent areas, which also include Greeking text
  8. Use a theme that, in desktop view, prominently features a menu of links to the site’s pages
  9. Use a theme that, in mobile view, prominently features a menu of links to the site’s pages
  10. Organize the page menu so that the “About” page is listed first
  11. Include a header photograph (details below)
  12. Include a minimum of one page with an embedded video (details below)
  13. Include a minimum of one page with embedded audio (details below)
  14. Include no other menus or widgets (e.g. no “Meta” or “Archives”)
  15. Include no comment boxes

Header Image

The header image should

  1.  Support the “Creative Professional” theme and look good on both desktop and mobile displays
  2. Represent the student’s chosen areas of expertise (e.g. writing implements for a portfolio focused on writing)
  3. Come from Flickr, and meet all other requirements detailed in our “WP Header Image” assignment. (The required image credits must appear on the “About” page.)

Video Post

19. One page should include the embedded video from one of the four finalists from CSU’s 2018 Campus Movie Fest.

Audio Post

20. One page should include the embedded SoundCloud audio of either Murder She Wrote or I. Psalm 132
