Publishing on the University Website
- Who can publish or edit the website:
limited number of individuals are allowed to edit and update their
website information. A department head or business office head must
request that someone in their group be set up with publishing access.
Make that request to firstname.lastname@example.org
- How to get publisher training
Training sessions will be held periodically. Contact email@example.com to request training. If a session is not scheduled in the immediate future, we will work with you individually
- Where and how to log-in
To make changes to the website, log in to: http://cmslogin.sdsmt.edu. You must be connected to the university network.
- Website Syncing
Publishers work in our staging area. Work on staging gets published to the live site once a day at the end of the day. Check ektron-stage.sdsmt.edu (must be on the network - either connected or vpn'd in) to see what your changes look like before they go live.
- If you have trouble and need immediate help:
Contact Marsha Ahrenkiel (394-1738) or Vickie Bender (394-1299)
