Web Content Management System Upgrade Planned for July 30

Posted on 6/26/2009 1:14:10 PM

An upgrade of Ektron—the content management system for the IUP website—has been tentatively scheduled for July 30, 2009.

The upgrade from version 7.0 to 7.6 is expected to resolve several longstanding bugs in Ektron and eliminate the need for web maintainers to install the Ektron editor separately.

Please note: Because of the upgrade, web maintainers will not be able to log in to the content management system and edit content on Thursday, July 30, or Friday, July 31. For that reason, anything that needs to appear live on the website by July 31 must be submitted by 2:00 p.m. on July 29.

The live website will remain accessible to visitors throughout the upgrade.

All help documentation for working with the website will be updated for the newer Ektron version and made available to maintainers at the time of the upgrade.

The Web Team would like to thank IT Services personnel for their work in planning and preparing for the transition.

Further details about the upgrade will be communicated as they become available.
