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.
WebGuides is a group of UofL web editors and developers. They meet the last Thursday of every month in Student Activities Center (SAC) at 3:00 PM. WebGuides has an email listserv where any member can submit questions or solutions to web issues. To subscribe to the list, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "subscribe webguide" (without quotations) in the body of your email message.
