"Thanks, Brad. We're moving from an old CMS (circa 2005) that posts static pages using page id's rather than URL's so there is going to be a lot of manual review, but htaccess redirects seem like our best solution. I'm reading the…"
"@Greg - I am no longer in higher ed, but I still work with EE. Converting the college's website was from a static website to EE, so the content was added manually.
You can import data using the datagrab add-on. I am not sure what you mean by…"
"We are looking to move our website to EE, but there is a lot of content review to do first. We are focusing on the back-end and not updating the design yet, but we are updating the layout to a responsive template. Our biggest concern right now is…"
"As for setting up the database like you would in WordPress, yes, that is the same.
As for setting up the CMS to tailor it to your needs, that is much different than WordPress.

It was a process, but yes. Once we had approval from leadership to pursue a new website, we presented to our idea for a CMS to the Web Advisor Committee to get their buy-in. We further presented to the executive committee, provost and deans,…"
"For us 'buy-in' came from the top-down. All websites are required to be in T4. That being said we conducted over 100 training sessions including using T4, writing for the web, how-to migrate content, and migration workshops. We conducted…"
