External App: WordPress in Canvas - Removing Course Copy Links to past blogs

If you have copied content from one course to another using the Canvas Import Course Content tool, and you have used WordPress in Canvas in the past, you may have two Course Blog links in your course if you did not remove one before requesting a new one for your current term.  To avoid confusion for yourself and your students, we recommend you remove the copied course blog link before you request a new course blog.

Option 1: Remove it Completely

1. Go to Settings -> Apps

2. Click View App Configuration

3. Scroll down to where you see WordPress Integration, click on the gear icon to the right, and Delete this integration.

Option 2: Hide it from your Navigation

1. Go to Settings -> Navigation

2. Fine Course Blog in the list of activated items in your Navigation menu, click on the three dots to the right, and Disable.

What to do it you already have two Course Blog links

If you already have two Course Blog links in your Canvas site, and you now want to remove one of them, you can verify which one is which by following the same first two steps outlined in Option 1 above, and clicking Edit from the gear to view settings of the integration itself.

Here you can view the Launch URL of the different integrations to be able to see which ones points you to the current version of your blog, and which one points you to the past version of your blog.

URLs are structured to include the term code for your course. The term codes follow this structure.

  • Spring 2020 --> 202001
  • Summer 2020 --> 202002
  • Fall 2020 --> 202003

The year is the first four numbers, and the term is the second two numbers, with 01 representing spring, 02 representing summer, and 03 representing fall.
