WCMS 3 migration update

Our web form to request the migration of an existing WCMS site is temporarily closed while we continue to work on the WCMS 3 migration script. It will reopen after some issues in the migration process have been mitigated.

Keep an eye on our WCMS 3 training and support page as we continue to add more WCMS 3 resources. We anticipate the availability of WCMS 3 LEARN courses at the end of the month! 

WCMS 2 site information

Creating new WCMS 2 sites

WCMS 2 FDSU sites are no longer being built as of June 29, 2021. Site maintainers requiring a new WCMS site will need to build the site in the new WCMS 3 environment.

Site requests for single page, publication or conference templates will continue to be supported until the functionality is available in WCMS 3.

Drop-in lab

Have a question, or need some help with your website? A virtual Drop-in lab will be open every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1-4 p.m. to provide WCMS content maintainers one-on-one website and training support. Please reach out to Charlotte Armstrong, via email or Microsoft Teams, to schedule an appointment.
