Migrating to Latest Drupal Theme

We've been busy migrating sites to our latest theme. Find out how things have changed so you can continue to edit your webpages.

Theme Migration Cheatsheet

Welcome to the user documentation for VIU's content management system (CMS).  This documentation describes the most common use cases for editing a website which include: logging in, creating and editing a page and a variety of other tasks.  Advanced topics are also covered, and will be added as the site evolves over time.

We are actively moving from our existing web editing software, Adobe Contribute, to a different product called Drupal.  This documentation covers the use of the Drupal CMS and the Bootstrap-based theme that is now being used.  There are several advantages to using Drupal and Bootstrap over the existing system:

  • Browser based editing.  You can edit your site in all updated major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari).  As such, no special software is required, and no need to connect through a VPN if you are working remotely
  • Responsive site methodologies ensure the site looks great on mobile, tablet and desktop screen sizes
  • Drupal is a flexible and open source CMS and framework.  VIU has in-house developers who are continually providing new features and ensuing sites are functioning optimally

If you are having trouble editing your site, or you would like to explore ways to improve the function and / or appearance of your site please contact us at ithelp@viu.ca.
