Content Management System

Getting Started with the CMS

Utilizing UCR's Content Management System - Overview

In general, there are five steps to utilizing UCR's Content Management System as follows:

  1. Requesting Access / Development / Support for a UCR CMS Web Site.

    In general, support will be provided on a "first come, first serve" basis (exceptions will be made to meet strategic campus communications goals / objectives).

  2. Designing the Web Site (using pre-defined CMS templates or designing a custom site on a fee-for-service basis).

  3. Obtaining Training for the UCR CMS Content Providers, Content Publishers, and (if applicable) for Super Editors.

    A wide variety of on-line training exists for the UCR CMS. In general, face-to-face training sessions will be very oriented towards problem solving and will assume participants have taken the online training.

  4. Migrating Content - typically conducted by editors of the site with some assistance from C&C based on availability

  5. Publishing the New CMS enabled Web Site.
