Welcome

Who We Are

Russell Labs consists of the University of Wisconsin-Madison departments of Entomology, Forest and Wildlife Ecology, and Plant Pathology.  Russell Labs Computing provides IT services to those departments.

WordPress Hosting

Russell Labs Computing offers WordPress website hosting for Russell Labs faculty and some student organizations. We do not offer hosting for individual students.

For Russell Labs Faculty and Staff

If you are interested in getting a WordPress site with us, email us at webeditor@russell.wisc.edu with some times and dates you’re available to meet. We’ll get back to you and schedule an initial meeting.  Before the meeting, please take a look at our handout on planning content for your website.

When we meet, we’ll ask questions to determine if WordPress hosting with us will meet your business needs.  If it’s a good match, we’ll setup a base site for you with a URL begining with http://labs.russell.wisc.edu.

You, or your lab staff will attend an orientation on WordPress, and then you can begin to create pages, add content, and arrange the site menu.

We look forward to speaking with you.

For Other UW-Madison Campus Departments Interested in WordPress

We welcome opportunities to network with other UW departments who use, or would like to use WordPress.  You may be interested in attending one of our Russell Labs WordPress User Group meetings – visit this page to learn more.
