Will our forms migrate to the new WCMS?
Webforms (forms, results, and associated files) will be part of the migration.
Authenticated forms will not be available at launch as we need to get ADFS authentication working for site logins first. However, anonymous forms will be live with more options than they had in WCMS 2.
Has the width of the main content area been finalized yet for WCMS 3?
It is not finalized to the point where you should start designing pixel-exact graphics (though with responsive, you have to remember that these will not always display at the full size anyway), but each section can have one of four possible widths:
Narrow contained width (~496px) - approximately equal to WCMS 2 "standard" page width at desktop sizes (will get narrower as needed at narrower widths)
Wide contained width (~753px) - approximately equal to WCMS 2 "wide" page width at desktop sizes (will get narrower as needed at narrower widths)
Extra-wide contained width (~1200px) - slightly larger than the full width of a WCMS 2 page, including the left-hand navigation, at desktop sizes (will get narrower as needed at narrower widths)
Full width (pixel width not applicable) - 100% of the site visitor's browser width, whatever that may be (at desktop sizes, this extends to the edges of the browser, while the contained width sections max out and have margins)
Will "News" and "Events" still be automatically displayed on the home page?
Even in WCMS 2, if you don't promote anything to the home page, nothing will appear. WCMS 3 adds the ability to remove that block or configure certain content types not to appear. In WCMS 3, this is the "multi-type list" block that is added by default to the home page.
Will we be able to use the Single page theme within a FDSU site (so that it isn't a separate URL)?
It is our intent that there are no more separate themes in WCMS 3. All the functionality from all the themes will be available on all sites.
Is it possible to move an entire section (all of its blocks) up or down a page, or do you have to create a comparable section and move each of the blocks individually?
It looks like Drupal does not provide the functionality to move sections around, so you would have to create a section and move blocks. Depending on what you are trying to do, it may be easier to "move" other sections down than "move" the intended section up.
Is there a way to have a 2-column layout inside a copy block?
No, you have to do it from the other direction - add a 2-column section, and place copy blocks in both columns.
Only the latest version of published items will be migrated, correct?
Yes, technically "the latest published version" - things in other states will not be migrated, even if they are newer than the published version.
If you do not want older items to migrate, such as older News items, you should unpublish them.
Would uploaded images be migrated as-is and remain available at their current URLs?
Uploaded images will be migrated as-is but are likely to have different URLs. Migrated content will be updated to use the correct URLs.
