Tuesday, June 29, 2021

What is happening? Information Systems & Technology’s Web Development team is excited to announce the launch of the new Waterloo Content Management System (WCMS) 3 platform. 

What does this mean? Standard (FDSU), non-custom WCMS 3 websites, hosted in the new Pantheon environment, are now available for request.  

What is different in WCMS 3? 

  • Most changes will be noticeable to content maintainers working within the system to build websites. 
  • There may be some visual changes to websites (e.g., content layout).  
  • The left-hand vertical menu will now appear as a horizontal menu near the top of the website. 
  • The “Log in” link has been removed from website footers.  
  • See the Initial release comparison web page to see what will and what won’t be available at launch. 
  • Watch the new WCMS 3 videos to learn more about these changes and compare WCMS 2 to WCMS 3

Which sites/themes are impacted by this launch? 

  • This launch only impacts sites that want to use the current standard (FDSU) theme. 

    • This does not include the conference, publication, or single-page themes. 

    • This does not include authenticated sites or sites that require custom modules.
