Weekly Web Updates – November 21, 2016

We created a special “Event” content type for the Middlebury Sustainability site, which is now available to use anywhere on the Middlebury Drupal site that you would like to list event information. Documentation on using the Event content type is available on the L&ITS Wiki.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • Updated the process that builds Course Hub sites for new courses to ensure that it will work for additional course formats, specifically those where the course number contains letters.
  • Fixed an issue with the MiddCORE email subscription form where extra line breaks in the email headers were preventing the form from sending confirmation emails to the site administrators.
  • We resolved an issue with images on featured articles in the Middlebury Magazine site.
  • The default student year on the Davis UWC Scholars site was increased.

Ongoing Work

  • A small redesign of the Middlebury News Room to bring it more inline with the newsletter.
  • 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.
  • Providing Course Hub access for Schools Abroad courses.
