You would need to research and implement some sort of CMS in order to do
this - not an easy task, for certain.

If you are looking for something more immediate that you can use with
your current site, you might look into Macromedia (Adobe) Contribute.
The plus side is that it can be used with very minor updates to your
current site and can be set with author / publisher privileges, which
essentially means that nothing gets posted until someone else approves.
It will also protect the formatting.

The down side is that it is a software product, which means there is a
cost per license.

Adobe offers Contribute for a 30 day trial.  You could at least try it.

Also, if you decide you like it, purchase through UF Software - - for the deepest discount.  If you are using one
of the Macromedia bundles, you might already have a licensed copy to

Thanks everyone for the responses.  I should have specified my question
At the Dean of Students Office, we are looking for a program that will
allow people that have limited (or no) experience with web design.  I
want to know if wordpress will work well with people with no experience
and allow them to change content without breaking the UF template?
We currently have everyone using dreamweaver but with the wysiwyg editor
we have had problems with people going outside of the template and/or
just breaking their pages.  Can word press help with this?
If wordpress will work for this I will start looking into implementing

We use it in Web Administration for various sites (news,ufpa,insideuf)
we manage. If you do want to use it and need help in getting the UF
into it, please let me know.
