Website Editing Tool to Change February 21

Posted on 2/17/2011 2:21:54 PM

Department and office web maintainers will notice a change in default editors in Ektron, the tool used to edit the IUP website, starting Monday, February 21, 2011.

A Switcher’s Guide to Content Designer is available to help maintainers through the major differences.

The switch from eWebEditPro to Content Designer is necessary for editing website content on computers with Windows 7, to which some computers on campus have already been upgraded. The change in editors will also allow for future upgrades in Ektron.

With Content Designer, web maintainers will be able to edit content from any computer and in any browser (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc.) without having to install any software.

Changes web maintainers may notice with the new editor involve toolbar options, the application of styles, and overall appearance of the editor. The Web Team provided an overview of these changes during the January 2011 Web Maintainers’ Summit.
