Event Calendar Issue Resolved!

** UPDATE: This issue has been resolved **


The plugin update 2.1.5 for the All-in-one event calendar by Timely has conflicted with our system.  Clicking into an event takes the visitor to a missing link page.  We are currently working with their support team to get this issue resolved and to bring back the event detail pages.  Because this plugin updates the database we are not able to roll it back at this time.  We’ll keep you posted on updates and also let you know when the issue is resolved.  Please email lsa.web.support@umich.edu with any questions.

Best,
Web Services & LSA-IT

Welcome

Welcome to the University of Michigan’s (U-M) College of Literature, Science, and the Art’s (LSA) WordPress website request page!  Beginning on November 14th, 2013, the partnership between LSA Web Services and LSAIT is launching a 2-month WordPress pilot program.  This new offering will allow faculty members at U-M, labs, minor programs, and so on, to develop an easily editable, U-M branded website.  WordPress is a very popular open-source software platform that is widely used as content management systems for websites of any size and blogs.  LSAIT has installed WordPress Multisite in the U-M network so it’s protected under the firewall.  Answers to questions on editing, publishing, and functionality are easily found through Google searches and help forums.

We offer three different site themes to choose between and a handful of plug in options. More information on the themes we offer can be found under Example Themes.
