Weekly Web Updates – July 3

Our colleagues in Communications found this really great guide to WCAG 2.0 Accessibility requirements. Each items has a short article explaining the standard in simple English with suggestions.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • References to the “News Room” were changed to the “Newsroom” in the global header and all locations on the Middlebury and MIIS Drupal sites.
  • Fixed an issue where the MIIS homepage was printing extra stories that were hidden, but may still have caused browsers to download extra assets.

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.
