Marcy Sterner Gineris replied to Dan Demmons's discussion Web Editor Policies- when is enough, enough?
"We also have a standard content design and when editors step outside of the standard a number of times I will schedule a meeting with that editor and see if there's a better fit. Again, it comes down to 1:1 conversation at our…"

Thoughts on Google Panda?

I've been considering how Panda might impact what I do within the content on our website. In the end, I really think it will simply push me to strive for highest possible quality of content, which is a good thing! I think it will have more implications for our web designer, who works with unique tracking and the rest of our analytics efforts. Anyone have any thoughts?

"By the way, the selection and implementation of our CMS was a real test and turning point for our team. We all struggled with the outdated html/Dreamweaver system we used before Radiant, and now, as I said, things are going well. A CMS is a must."

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More

It's time for us to move away from our current CMS, and I was wondered what is working best for others: a pre-packaged solution, or building your own with WordPress, Drupal or ...?See More
