Once our site is set up, how does it get published?
Once you are satisfied with your new subsite and feel that it is ready to "go live", you should externally publish all of your content. After doing so, your site will be available at a temporary URL (similar to http://ww5.hunter.cuny.edu/your-subsite-name) so that you can see what it will look like to the general public.
Initial approval of the site must be done by the head of the controlling unit (a dean, department chair, program director, office manager, etc.). This person must email their approval of the site to the Communications Office.
The Communications Office will then review the site for spelling, grammar, formatting and writing style. Each new subsite should meet the standards outlined in the Hunter College Style Guide. If the site is not approved, specific revisions will be requested. The subsite's staff manager(s) will work together with the Communications Office to gain final approval.
Once approved, the Web Development Group will officially launch the new site. The website will now be public, and all links to the old site (if one exists) will redirect to the new version. Your permanent web address will be in the form: http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/your-subsite-name
Note: After a site has been launched, it is the responsibility of the controlling unit to continuously maintain the site and ensure that all content on the website remains up-to-date. All public-facing CMS subsites are reviewed on a regular basis. If out-of-date or incorrect content is found, the Communications Office will email the subsite's staff manager(s) and request that they remove or modify the offending material. If changes are not made in a timely manner, the content may be removed or modified by the Communications Office or Web Development Group.
