    Last week, as you may have read, we upgraded to the latest version of our LiveWhale content management system, which powers the vast majority of our website.

  • LiveWhale Navigations

    After a test period early in the year, we have applied considerable effort to get all of the non-custom right-hand navigations rebuilt as LiveWhale Navigations, giving site editors the ability to edit their site navigation without our assistance. (Ben, Jonah, Morgan and Lawrence)

    1. Nov 1: Completed conversion of the remaining navigations.
  • LiveWhale Places

    We are working with WhiteWhale (maker of LiveWhale) to add geo-location to news, events, blurbs, images, etc. in LiveWhale. This will help us better convey our primary message that we are locally and globally engaged. (David, Morgan and WhiteWhale)

    2. Prior Spring: Jonah converted many legacy forms to LiveWhale Forms.
  • Newsroom Redesign

    We need to rethink both our Newsroom template design and address the standard news page design across the site. This template was one of our first in the redesign, so it’s time to revisit it and add new features, particularly social media.

  • Calendar

    The events calendar is the public-facing calendar dedicated to events promotion. It automatically assembles and displays events entered into LiveWhale websites across all three campuses. (David)

    Several upgrades to the user interface need to take place to help with user understanding and training. (Milestone: none)
