The migration to EdWeb gathers pace
The migration of all websites from Polopoly into the new CMS EdWeb is gathering pace with the first three Schools lined up and ready to go.
Having migrated 15 sites into EdWeb we now have a process that is starting to bed in and to make sure that we finish the migration by December 2015 we are really starting to ramp up the speed in which we move sites. Migration phases 1 and 2 migrated a total of 600 pages but we are looking to move a further 6000 pages in this next phase.
To meet the demand we’ve recruited an extra 4 editors who are performing the site tidy up process.
The three Schools, School of Molecular, Genetic and Population Health Sciences, School of Informatics and School of History, Classics and Archaeology are just about to start the process of moving all their content into EdWeb. It’s a three week process during which we recommend an editing change freeze to guarantee that no content is lost during the migration. The first two weeks work is handled by UWP as we perform the auto-migration followed by an editorial tidy up. The site is then handed back to the sites lead publisher before being made live in the new system.
We’ll keep you up to date with our progress over the next few months.
