TAMU Webmaster's Blog

Information and insight from the A&M Webmasters

University Website Republished

January 17th, 2012 by Erick Beck

This morning we relaunched the university website with the cosmetic updates that we mentioned before the holidays. The two things that you’ll notice right away is the featuring of the social media buttons – in keeping with Marcomm’s emphasis on maintaining a national leadership role in social media – and the greater tie-in of the campus news section with TAMUtimes.

As well as these design updates, we have completely overhauled the template code and rewritten it in HTML5. This is the beginning of a trend that you will see in all of our new sites. We have also (finally!) gotten the site moved into the Cascade content management system. We have migrated a few sites into the CMS, but this one will be by far our largest and most complex. I’m hoping that we will have the rest of our sites put into the system by the end of the year.

Next on the list list is the president’s website. Kim Miller and Jenni Walthall are now leading the design team. We have come up with a preliminary page look, and hope to have it rolled out in a couple of weeks.
