Website Development

Websites at UofL use version 4 of the Plone content management system (CMS).  The CMS makes adding and updating pages easier than building a custom website from scratch, but Plone comes with it's own learning curve for it's interface and features. Since Plone is an open-source platform, much of the support is through user communities here at the university and across the web.
