Hello --Like many schools, SUNY-ESF has (in addition to a 'company page') a Linkedin group profiled as the "... official professional and career networking group for SUNY-ESF alumni, students and faculty." The original plan was to limit membership as described, and that continues to be the policy.I notice, however, that I get non-ESF people requesting membership: corporate HR, headhunters, same-field professionals, etc. So far, I kindly deny them membership, but give them info for job posting…See More
First, still with Ning here, and not SocialEngine.
Several parts to the "hook" answer, though I'm not yet sure that they make a compelling set:
CONTENT -- ...in the broadest sense. ESF everything - feeds, branding, layout,…"
Thanks for the reply.
Can I ask how (if) you will handle accepteds in this network? SocialEngine tells me that subnetworks/networks can't be "merged", but what's your understanding of the isolation-to-engagement range…"
"Same story at SUNY-ESF -- Ning network for accepteds rolled out 1/08 with a plan to 'retire' it, well, now actually, and then to relaunch for the next class. The network had student ambassador and admissions staff members, and it included…"
"Hi Julie, I use a plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/) to set up simple page redirects. Using it at our root site to link to a deep page or an external page gives a 'short-ish' URL. brescia.uwo.ca/give/ is an example that…"
"Me neither :-) But when I tried to send you a message, it notified me that I could only message you if we're friends. I was curious about your experience with Wordpress as a CMS for your University website? We're a small University as well…"
My experience has been very positive. We are now running several WordPress multisites, and if I could encapsulate the results it would be:
Much improved editing experience for departmental users compared to other CMS.
"Cara, your links have been extremely useful. We're seriously considering migrating to Wordpress over the summer. We've used TYPO3 since 2009, which is another open-source CMS. I appreciate all the comments posted so far, but I wonder what…"
"Given a relatively small volume of pages, it is probably best to handle this manually, ensuring that your workflow triggers a translation when the English version of the page changes. With this approach you can use either local translators, or…"
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."
"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"
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
