Companies and organizations which have many web pages use a content management systems to build and edit their webpages. A Content Management System is essentially a frame work which allows for the sharing of common elements across many different pages. This efficiency helps the web team locate, track and make changes to many pages in the ETSU web site very quickly.
ETSU's website consists of over 660 subsites and about 10,000 individual web pages!
Each department is ultimately responsible for web updates and the quality of content in its site.
Access and Training
To get access to your website you must first attend our CMS training
Training workshops are provided for all departments upon the approval of the department administrator. At the completion of the workshop the participants will be able to:
- Login to CMS using their ETSU username and password
- Upload documents and/or pictures that will be used on the website pages
- Edit, hyperlink, add pictures, save and submit pages
- Format text, add snippets, styles, and components to the webpage
Before attending a workshop each user will need approval from the departments administrator and an account in the content management system. The administrator can contact either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by email to approve the new user. The user can then register for the workshop and the Web Technology Team will set up the user with an account.
If student workers or graduate assistants will be updating the website, we recommend that in addition to the student, a full-time staff or faculty member will also be attending training. This helps ensure consistency when student turnover occurs.
