Version 6 is here!
Git aht! We've upgraded?
Yes! And Version 6 (v6) comes packed with great new features and a major visual facelift. Read the release notes for some of the highlights.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: While we have made every effort to make the transition to CMS Version 6 as smooth as possible, please take some time to review your site now and make sure nothing is out of place. You do not need to republish your website. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any website concerns or issues.
The university CMS team — comprised of Marketing & Communications and Computing Services staff — presented a preview of v6 at a November 14 meeting. If you missed the meeting, review the presentation [.pdf].
Version 6 is easy on the eyes. The modern interface combines larger font and bold colors. i.e., no more squinting.
More efficient editing experience
Ever find yourself asking, What does this field do? The new and improved editing screen has help text and in-product cues so you can feel like a pro.
Whether you're stuck on the bus or trapped in a meeting, you can access and edit your site from any device. iPad, iPhone, Droid, whatever - the world is your oyster.
Just don't try this on your 1999 Blackberry.
NEW content types
Tired of listing your courses in an endless scroll of expand/collapse? We thought so. The new course index and course pages display your school's curriculum in a clean and user-friendly format.
