April 17, 2014

Between a long series of important development efforts on our part and a series of quick-fire releases by Hannon Hill of enhancements to their Cascade Server software, our next upgrade is jumping us from version 7.2.2 all the way up to 7.10. We're in the process of testing it on the default Service suite and will then open it up to site managers for individual site testing. The best part is all the new features this upgrade will offer our user community. Read on for the list of features...

Coming May 1, 2014 -- Faculty WordPress Service for faculty members and academic units!

To date, our campus faculty community hasn't had a service like Web CMS, but the good folks over at Academic Technology Services have worked hard to create solution in the form a WordPress platform specific to their needs. Just some of the features:

  • User-centric domain names
  • CAS authentication
  • Ability to give researchers and students access for editing
  • Manage course listings, information and publications
  • Add images, videos and social media
  • Customize the site from a theme gallery
  • Use mobile apps to update your site from a tablet or phone

And, best of all, this is a central service, free of charge to eligible users. Visit http://faculty.ucdavis.edu for more information.
