WWW Migration

February 17th, 2008 by Erick Beck

The university website is finally up! I spent the afternoon migrating the core site as well as several of the smaller subsites into production. As well as having the new content and page look, the Google search appliance is now officially online as well.

As a brief recap of todays migration, we put online:

Coming quickly will be the President’s and Provost’s site, the beginnings of a web accessibility initiative, and many more.

This was a very large project, and I have no doubt that things were lost in the cracks somewhere during migration. So please take a look around the site, and if you find something that doesn’t work, isn’t visible through the firewall, or is linked to the wrong place please let us know so that we can get it fixed up.

  5. B-E-A-utiful job with the new site. Looks very good and has all the right info a front page should have. Are there any plans to attempt to make every official TAMU page look the same?

  7. Lwo,
    As was briefly mentioned earlier, we do not envision the entire campus adopting this web template. In fact, the preferrence is to keep the university page uniquite and foster a sense of web development on campus that creates a “family” of similarity based on the Brand Guide. We will be publishing several more templates over the next few weeks, both more and less similar to the new WWW look, but we want to emphasize the creative direction in which we’re going.
