Check for broken links

Activate and use the “Broken Link Checker” plugin.

Easily navigate between pages

You can use the “CMS tree page view” plugin to have a nicer list of your pages. With drag and drop, you can easily rearrange them. Note that this will not change the order they display in the menu. Menus have to be managed separately (see dedicated section below).

Organise the media files

Thanks to the plugin “WP Real Media Library” (already activated), you can organise your media in folders. This is particularly useful for big websites with many and various media (pictures, documents, videos…)

Get website analytics

To monitor the traffic, we use a plugin that is connected to google analytics: “Insights”. To get the details for your website, you need to link this plugin to a google account.
Access the Insights setup menu in the bottom left menu of the dashboard and follow the instructions.
Note that The Research Communication Team (RCE) is keeping track of the overall traffic on this WordPress server. You can ask them for statistics on your website if you haven’t set your Google Analytics profile.
