Thanks for your comments on selecting a webCMS. Like you, we are opting not to go with an open source solution. I agree, cheaper up front, perhaps, but we just don't have the technology support to effectively build from scratch. I would truly like to learn from your experience - and yep, got the 2008 wCMS report and find it very valuable. We've narrowed it down to 3 "finalists," Cascade Server, Ingenuix - which I note you selected, and OmniUpdate. We meet as a group next week to go over the research I've compiled in over the last 3 months and to have folks share their thoughts on the wCMS report summaries of each of these 3, although all but Ingenuix are at later and enhanced versions. Feel free to contact me at TL-North@wiu.edu or email@example.com. Thanks, tere

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
