Site Manager maintenance is complete; please continue with content migration in order to meet upcoming content deadline

Following a brief period of site-structure maintenance, the system is again open to all users. We ask that you resume content migration efforts. As a reminder, all public-site content must be entered in the system no later than close of business on September 4. Live beta testing will begin on September 10.

Additionally, keep in mind that the private site project is now running concurrently with the public site, and gathering and organizing your private-site content will also take some time.

We would like to remind all users that additional training is being scheduled to accommodate this revised schedule. Upcoming sessions include:

Please register in advance to ensure adequate classroom space.

We thank all users for their continued support of the website project. If you have any questions or need additional guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Web Technologies staff at 446.7070 or webmaster@evms.edu.

Web project update

Though the website launch is delayed, we ask that you continue on in your content development and migration efforts. We will be completing our site structure adjustments and be opening the content management system to content editors again next week.

Keep in mind that the private site schedule is now on track with that of the public site, significantly increasing the scope of our project.

Our intent is to keep momentum going, as we anticipate several review cycles and prefer that the content be in the system as soon as possible so that we can initiate this process.

Additionally, we plan to use our extra time to more thoroughly align our priorities and present follow-on training to assist users in their migration effort efforts.

We thank you for your ongoing content migration efforts and we appreciate your participation as well as your ongoing patience with the project. If you have any questions, please direct them to webmaster@evms.edu or call 446.7070.

New web training dates to be announced

We will be holding additional training sessions through the beginning of November in an effort to best leverage the additional time we now have due to the public site launch delay.

We plan to continue holding the previous training sessions (Using Site Manager, Formatting Content, Writing for the Web, Content Migration Workshop).

Additionally, we will introduce several new sessions to accommodate those users who are further along in the migration process. The new trainings will also address content requirements and system functions associated with the private site, which is now set to launch concurrently with the public site.

We will announce the new schedule for training within the next week. In the meantime, we ask that you continue with your ongoing content migration efforts when the site becomes available to users again next week.

If you have any questions, please direct them to webmaster@evms.edu or call 446.7070.

Please review your section (page) names within the site structure

For consistency and space-saving purposes within our navigation, we ask that users refrain from use of terms such as “Office of,” “Department of,” or “Division of.”

For example, the Office of Technology Transfer should be listed in the site structure simply as, “Technology Transfer.”

In general, we ask that you be cognizant of the way in which you name all sections within Site Manager, as each of these sections may ultimately become a link within the navigation. Keep in mind your audience, and how they will expect to move through the site and find information.

We ask that you quickly review your section names to ensure they are concise; yet, easy for your audience to understand.

We appreciate your assistance. If you have any questions, please direct them to webmaster@evms.edu or call 446.7070.
