CI web site migration - content freeze begins July 15

by in 0

The migration of existing web site content to the new CI web site design is scheduled to begin on July 15, 2014, in preparation for the August 15, 2014 go-live of the new site.


Starting on July 15, Web Services shall disable edit access to all CI web sites for all sites in migration phases 1A-1D, including all hosted on www.csuci.edu. View the list of migration phases here: http://bit.ly/1sj9nvg


During this time, all requests for content changes must be sent to the T&C Help Desk at helpdesk@csuci.edu. Due to the timing and scope of work required, campus organizations may experience delays in posting updated content during this period. This content freeze is necessary to complete the migration of the new CI web templates.


Web Services team members shall migrate new content to the new site as appropriate, and make adjustments to the design and organization of content within the new site as needed. In addition, Web Services shall apply the new mobile-friendly web site template to all existing pages in the designated migration phase.


Once the initial migration is complete (expected July 22), the Web Services team will then notify the primary website contacts in the phase that the migration is ready for their final review.


Between July 22 and August 5, web site subject matter experts will then check pages/sites to verify that content and interactive elements have migrated as expected, and will report discovered issues via the “Give us your feedback” link at the top of each page. During this period, Web Services shall repair, to the best of its ability, all discovered issues and re-publish them for further review/preview.


From August 6 to August 14, Web Services will perform final pre-launch quality assurance and migration of content.


Between August 14 and August 15, Web Services shall publish all new and updated content for sites in Phases 1A-1D, replacing the old www.csuci.edu home page and other sites as appropriate.


Upon successful completion of publishing of the migrated sites (on or after August 15), Web Services shall re-enable edit access to new web site content as appropriate. At that time, organizations may resume editing their updated sites and report further discovered issues to the T&C Help Desk for assistance with repair.
For questions relating to specific web pages or sites, please contact Web Services Supervisor Daniel Martinez at daniel.martinez@csuci.edu.
For general questions about the project or the content freeze, please contact Director of IT Strategy Peter Mosinskis at peter.mosinskis@csuci.edu.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the web site migration! More information on this project is available on the Web Refresh project web site.
