The CMS upgrade will be progressing as planned tomorrow July 28. Please plan accordingly. We will update all CMS users via this page and email when the upgrade is complete.
Beginning Tuesday July 28th we will be upgrading to the latest version of the Ektron Content Management System (CMS) and then on August 10-13 we will be migrating to a new hosting service. During these times you will NOT be able to edit with the CMS. All content updates must be made no later than 5pm EDT on day prior to either the upgrade or migration. At these times CMS access will be disabled. Barring any unforseen circumstances, we will be migrating the existing content to the new version the following week. We anticipate that CMS access will be reinstated on Monday August 17th, possibly sooner.
With the ongoing site improvements a new show/hide interface has been
developed. It is gradually replacing the old version as content gets
updated.There are two important differences for CMS editors:
If you have any questions, contact the Online Strategies producer assigned to your site.

CMS Best Practices
Please use the Document Management System (DMS) as a means of managing downloadable assets (PDFs). The DMS treats PDFs as content blocks are treated, which means it employs version control to house multiple iterations of a particular document in one DMS file. In most cases you will just be overwriting an existing document with a new version.
If you need to upload a entirely new document. there is an additional step. In those cases, you should contact your site's producer so that he or she can assign the new document a unique alias and do the first upload for you.
To make the DMS function as well as possible, use best practices for DMS naming conventions, as follows:
Following these naming conventions will ensure that you can find your content more easily, because it will be grouped by consistent identifiers. Ensuring the file name is similar to the document title improves search engine optimization and lets a user know what the file contains once it has been downloaded.
