Palomar College offers WordPress sites to all faculty and staff. You will be able to create an ad for your event or class on a WordPress page. This enables each person to update and edit their specific information. Your WordPress ad will allow me to link a button from the Palomar College homepage to your class or event information. All I need from you is the URL to your WordPress page.
How to Create a Palomar College WordPress Site:
- Sign in for a WordPress site by going to http://www2.palomar.edu/pages/
- Click on the “Log in” link in the menu on the right hand side of the page.(META > Log In)
- Enter your Palomar College username (without the ‘@palomar.edu’) In most cases, your first initial and last name is your username. Then enter your Palomar College email password. Then click the “Log in” button.

- Type in all registration information and contact information that a student would need to register for a class or event in the body text area. Pretty much all the information a student would see in the class schedule.
