Website Maintenance

The Digital Services team is in the process of migrating websites from an older version of our CMS to the newer version, Drupal 9.

Drupal 9 offers more flexibility in building web pages, is more user-friendly for editors, and allows for more visually appealing sites. The overall time frame to complete this process will vary depending on the size of your site. We estimate at least 2 weeks for most sites.

During the coming weeks, someone from the Digital Services may be contacting your department web editor and/or chair to schedule a meeting to begin the content  audit and review process. All administrative offices and departments at Oswego are encouraged to have a website through Editors must attend an introductory training session before they are given access to Drupal.

If you would like to start the review process, please schedule a meeting using the button below. Someone will respond to your request within three (3) business days. If you aren't available during the times listed, email Kate DeForest to set up a training session by appointment.

Updates & Management

If your site needs a refresh, a major update, or if you think there’s a need to create a new site, please fill out the request form below. Provide us with as much information as you can, and someone from our team will be in touch to discuss the best approach to achieve your goals. 

New site/redevelopment form

We prefer that all departments on the campus have their own web editor, but we realize that due to short staffing and personnel changes, this is not always possible. If your office does not currently have an editor or has a website that requires minimum editing throughout the semester (2-3 edits a month or less), we recommend using the Maintenance Request form below. Requests are usually fulfilled within one business day, but that may depend on the length and complexity of the request. Please note that out of respect for the time and focus of our web team, we highly encourage all departments to have an editor who can make minor updates.
