Weekly Web Updates – December 11, 2017

We upgraded WordPress to version 4.9 recently, but it didn’t make it into the updates post. You can review the changes in this new version of WordPress here. The most important changes are better previews for site design changes you make in the customizer and easier-to-use image and gallery widgets.

The Online Directory is temporarily not available off-campus. We have finished an update to this that hides email address and phone number from lists of results (they are still shown on individual records) for off-campus users and are waiting for a review before this is deployed. This change should make it more difficult to automatically harvest this information.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • The Panopto video embed plugin for our WordPress sites now works on both sites with http and https protocol URLs.
  • We deployed a new version of the New England Review site for our colleagues in Communications.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Creating a new automatically generated course catalog.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.

Pre-Med Students: Don’t Miss the Medical School Applicant Panel and MCAT Peer Advice Panel 1/16

The Health Professions and STEM team is excited to welcome a panel of recent Middlebury College medical school applicants back to campus. Come hear about the application process from students who just went through the cycle. Ask them questions about the interview process (traditional and Multiple Mini Interviews or MMI) and find out what they wish they had known before applying to medical school.

You’ll also hear from a group of your peers who took the MCATs this past summer. We’ll ask them to share their study schedules, what materials they found useful, what tricks and tips they found to be helpful and test-day strategies.

What a great opportunity to hear about the application process from those who have just gone through it!

When: Tuesday, January 16 from 6:00-8:00 pm
