Did you do anything for April Fool's on your website?

We have started putting easter eggs, not really April Fool's pranks, on our site for April 1st.  This year was a simple appearance by our president when you click on the un-used #5 slide on our…Continue

Did you do anything for April Fool's on your website?

We have started putting easter eggs, not really April Fool's pranks, on our site for April 1st.  This year was a simple appearance by our president when you click on the un-used #5 slide on our homepage (www.southern.edu).  I like to see what others are doing as well, snhu.edu had a really great one featured in the Link magazine.   We're really looking forward to our new site this coming year that will free us up to do more exciting things.See More

Content Authors Buy-in

We have the situation on our campus where each department has their own website.  Each department then is required to have a full-time staff member that has a responsibility to update their website with fresh content.  The problem is that those staff members can't/won't/choose not too do that.  We can't get them to buy-in to the importance of updating the content, showing events, news, etc.  I was wondering if anyone else has that issue and how have you dealt with it? Are there incentives that…See More

Documenting our CMS selection process

We've been researching a new CMS (currently using Sharepoint) for nearly a year now and just started retroactively documenting our process.  I thought I'd put a link to it here in case anyone is interested or may be going through the same process.  http://southernwebteam.posterous.com/It's not all up there of course, I'll be adding content frequently though (at least that's the plan).  See More

Should we migrate to https?

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
