Weekly Web Updates – October 17, 2016


Fixes and Tweaks

  • Occasionally, when updating content on our Drupal sites, the front-end Varnish cache was not cleared on save because the script handling that event had Windows-style rather than UNIX-style line endings and silently failed. This was corrected.
  • We dropped SSLv3 support in favor of TLS on Drupal and WordPress sites.
  • Removed a duplicate page title above the breadcrumb on the Sustainability site.

Ongoing Work

  • Adding integration with Google Drive folders for the Course Hub.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS, GO, MediaWiki, and Course Catalog servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal and WordPress environments.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
  • Populating mailing lists in the MyEmma email system from Banner.
