We have currently paused all our migrations from EdWeb to our new Web Publishing Platform (WPP) in order to concentrate on critical development of the platform. We are working on our rescheduling process and timeline of how and when we’ll share this with our site lead publishers.

We have completed a review of the Web Publishing Platform (WPP) project and the migration from EdWeb to WPP at the beginning of the year. One of the outcomes of the meeting was that we feel we need to complete some crucial work on the platform and the hosting environment and have made the difficult […]

Migrating content from EdWeb and other Drupal sites into the Web Publishing Platform is proving to more difficult than we originally expected. A bit like going from a 10K race to an ultra marathon. So some tough times but also very exciting and satisfying as we solve some very complex problems. Our team is committed […]

As we draw ever nearer to starting our content migration from EdWeb into our new Web Publishing Platform it’s time to answer all the most prominent questions we’ve been getting over the past few weeks.

We are currently working on a plan of how we will move content from EdWeb into our new web publishing platform – a process which will involve creating new site structures as well as adapting and migrating content. We’ll take a look at what that might mean for lead publishers and owners of sites in EdWeb. 

Development is well under way to build a new Web Publishing Platform for the University. We’ll be starting to create sites and migrate content over from EdWeb during the next 12 – 14 months. We’ll take a look at what this means for EdWeb editors.

It’s essential to build accessibility into your projects from the very beginning. For our Web Publishing Platform this doesn’t just mean that the website and its content needs to be accessible but the editorial interface of the content management system itself also needs to be accessible to as many people as possible. 

Taking a product approach can be quite a culture shift for a team. Sometimes we are more used to working on ‘projects’ where we tend to work on more discrete blocks of work and often aren’t the people who run the future service. The team who are developing the software might never meet the users […]

Over 200 people from around the University participated in our latest top task survey looking at the diverse needs of our large and devolved Web Publishing Community.

We have just started an exciting new project to build a new web publishing platform for the University to replace our current Content Management System EdWeb.
