Google Site Search

We use assets to provide viewers contact information including pictures of our faculty/physicians.When doing a Google site search for a specific faculty/physician, the first image from an asset on the pages is displayed next to the search results. Basically, unless the asset for the faculty/physician that is being searched is at the top of the page, the displayed image does not match the search results.As an example, if you go to our website at…See More

User account security

We originally considered using LDAP for user accounts in OUC. However, because of security concerns with LDAP we chose to create the accounts locally.I am looking for input regarding other applications or methods to increase the security of our OUC accounts, specifically, requiring new users to change their password on first log in to the system, requiring passwords to have a specific number of characters, that passwords include letter number/character combinations, etc.Any insight on how your…See More

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

"Thanks for responding, Erik! I agree and like your point about it being a different kind of piece without a call to action. Those projects have their place, but is sometimes hard to justify carving out the time for them."

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More

Redirect Management Tool

Looking for some advice and hoping you guys might help me out. Do any of you know of a tool or service that will provide an interface to webserver redirect configuration? Looking for a frontend tool that would allow redirects to be configured by non-programmers/developers.While this is likely a php/apache solution I am not opposed to standing up a windows box and doing this via IIS/asp.net. Many thanks!See More
