WCMS training and support this summer …

Due to construction in MC this summer, SEW courses will not be offered in July and August.

We are now offering site maintainers the option of completing the SEW099 course at a time and location that fits their schedule! Users will self-register on LEARN and our team will provide the information and resources needed to complete the course online. Step-by-step instructions are available on our SEW self-registration for LEARN web page.

WCMS Drop-in lab hours and location will also be changing for the summer:

  • June – available every Tuesday in MC 1078
  • July – available only Tuesday, July 10 and Tuesday, July 24 in MC 1078
  • August – available by appointment

Website maintainers may request one-on-one training and support outside of these hours, please contact to make arrangements.

Twitter deprecating some widget settings (action required) – note date correction

Embedded Twitter widgets that rely on the widget ID (e.g. Search/Hashtag) will no longer be editable through the Twitter interface as of May 25, 2018, and will no longer work at all on July 27, 2018. Content maintainers should check Twitter widgets on their WCMS sites to ensure that the ‘Twitter widget ID’ field is not being used.
