Dear colleagues,

After a lengthy period of negotiation with the central web team, faculty=20
staff has come to an agreement whereby individual WordPress websites=20
will be provided for Maths and Stats academic staff.

The first couple of sites have been created - for Howard Bondell=20
 and Paul Zinn-Justin=20
, at their request (note=20
that parts of both are still under development). A couple more sites are=20

Some advertised advantages to using one of the new-style sites are:

    that=92s accessible from anywhere.
  * The site will be fully supported by Science web and the central web
  *  =A0The standard templates are consistent with other up-to-date
    websites across the Unimelb web ecosystem.
  * The standard templates used in the site perform well on a range of
    screen sizes and in all common browsers.
  * Hosting, Wordpress updates and domain name are administered centrally.
  * There=92s less risk of security vulnerabilities, because the sites use
    an up-to-date, centrally administered platform.
  * The site will perform well in Google, because it=92s mobile-friendly,
    properly configured for SEO, and sits on a domain.
