Manual or Documentation


WordPress.com is the hosted version of the open source WordPress.org software (https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/; https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/14/com-or-org/) offering a free online publishing platform with optional features, plans, and custom domains available for additional cost (https://wordpress.com/about/). This primer will focus exclusively on the WordPress.com free site export and archiving process. In the future additional primers and/or additions to this primer may be beneficial in order to cover the variations with WordPress.com Business Plan sites and WordPress.org software.



This work was created as part of the Data Curation Network “Specialized Data Curation” Workshop #1 co-located with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) Forum 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 17-18, 2018.
