Redesign Story: Washington College

Apologies for our silence!

August 24, 2012

There is a lot on the horizon. White Whale will be visiting in late September, leading up to an exciting launch in October.

The website project has entered the migration phase—where we move the old site over to the new templates, all behind the scenes—and most of our discussion with White Whale is half English, half Cascading Style Sheets.

What does this mean for you? Well, we are getting closer to having the actual content management system up and running, but until then, we encourage you to keep thinking about your content. If you’re developing new content or improving old content, you can do that in a Word document. Once the CMS is up and running, you’ll be able to copy and paste much of that content right into your pages. If you discover old content lurking in the dark recesses of your site, please let Tim know and he can take it down before the migration date. Tim asks that colleagues requesting changes to the current site please use the ticket system located on the College Relations site. 

White Whale is visiting campus September 25 and 26. Sessions will include some hands-on training, but it will also be a time to get feedback on your ideas for your office or department pages, and suggestions for using WC widgets. Keep an eye out for more details. We hope to see you there!
