WordPress.org License to Use for Academic Purposes (8 posts)

    I am in the process of putting together a 1 credit WordPress course for the community college where I work. With all of the great content on WordPress.org, this site will likely be one of my student's main information sources on the topic.

    However there is some content that I would like to customize for my student's computing environment and there is some content that I would like to provide in a slight different format.

    I was hoping that I would find some type of information about permission to reuse and copyright on the web site. When I clicked on the License / GPLv2 link at the bottom of the page, I was hoping there would be some type of reference to the web site and / or documentation. All I see is information related to the actual application.

    Can someone help be figure out the copyright / acceptable use terms related to documentation and web site content at WordPress.org?

    Thanks,

    Thank you VERY much. Sorry I did not find that on my own.

    Thanks for taking time to respond.

    As I review this link it all seems to apply to the program and not to the web site content.

    If I am viewing this incorrectly, please point me to the text that specifically relates to web site content (video, text, imagery, etc.).

    Thanks for your help and sorry if I am just missing it.

    All of the content copyright remains with it's original owner and it not covered by the GPL license.

    Thanks, but it would be helpful to have just a bit more clarification. I am asking where I find the rules for use/reuse of WordPress.org content.

    Ah! Do you intend to use some of the Codex content in your course?
