Weekly Web Updates – June 26

We’ve removed the Sydney theme from the list of those which can be enabled on the Middlebury site network. This theme requires a custom plugin for most of its advanced functionality to work and we recommend people use a different theme for their sites.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • Updated the copyright statement and carbon neutrality banner in the Sustainability site footer.
  • Extended the local browser cache lifetime of items served by cdn.middlebury.edu to two weeks and minified the MIIS site’s CSS files.
  • Removed the list of admission prices from the Dining Menus site.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Archiving Moodle.
  • 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.
