"There are a million reasons "traffic" could decrease (it also very much depends on how you define "traffic).
Did you launch a separate mobile/admissions/athletics/alumni site?
Are you filtering campus vs off-campus traffic?
"Keep in mind, while a 4% change in traffic might be out of the norm, it's also not statistically significant in most cases. After all, where is that dip happening? It's possible your home page views are down, while views across the rest of…"
dotCMS day to day, and WordPress for other smaller projects
What department or office are you in?
Primary Job Responsibility
I am formerly the Director of Web Marketing at Pittsburg State University. I am currently a writer for .eduGuru, CTO for nuCloud, and Senior Interactive Developer for Aquent.
At PSU I oversaw the general development and maintenance of our primary .edu site, along with several ancillary sites. I was in charge of all aspects of our CMS (a role I currently fill for Aquent now), as well as managing our social media, layout, SEO, accessibility compliance, and other assorted roles. The web shop was a one man show, which forced me to become a master of many trades.
I am new to uwebd and our university is in the process of evaluating several CMSs, OmniUpdate, Cascade and dotCMS seem like the strongest contenders. What do you like most and least about dotCMS?
We are use to extending our current in house developed CMS. Does dotCMS have an API for accessing content. Does it plugin architecture or support for JSP enable you to easily extend its functionality?
Are you aware of pros or cons vs Cascade or OmniUpdate?
Thanks, for any potential guidance you can give,
Michael, Ektron CMS400.NET has many good features. The only thing I don't like about it is that it only runs on a Windows machine. Previously, we used the LAMP environment for our Web site. So I am having difficulty getting applications built now. But the CMS package itself is working pretty well. We have found some problems in editing text, etc., and do most things in the code to get around them. However, for my users who do not know code, some things can be difficult. Version 8 is out and we are installing it in August, so I am hoping some of those issues have been resolved. Do you use a CMS?
Mike ... I cleared out the old post and made a new one since I spelled athletics wrong ... do have any info for me on the dotCMS and athletics (I you want to repost it or tell me directly that be great)... I see you use it now ... any help would be great ... thanks!!
