Web Redesign: New Website Access

Hello, Drupalites,

When we announced the new timeline, beginning this week, we indicated that you will need to make any site edits from Nov. 13 until Dec. 18 in both the current, live site and in the soon-to-be new site. Changes made last week should have been logged so they could be replicated.  Those changes can now be made in the new site.  Its current address is https://kentstateredesign.prod.acquia-sites.com.

Please note, the new home pages are not displayed on this site yet.  Home pages will be transferred over the next couple weeks.  Changes to the new home page are currently not permitted.

You may login with your Drupal credentials at https://kentstateredesign.prod.acquia-sites.com/user.  The environment is exactly the same and

Reminder of critical dates:

  • Nov. 21-Dec. 18 – you will be able to make changes to your live site, but you will also need to make them in the soon-to-be-new site; EXCEPTION – NO EDITS TO HOME PAGES. 
    • Should you need an edit to your live web site home page, keep a log. Those changes can be implemented Jan. 9.
  • Dec. 19-Jan. 8, 2017 – content freeze. Again, keep a log of any changes made, they will need replicated on new, live site effective Jan. 9, 2017
  • Jan. 8, 2017 – launch

Happy Thanksgiving from your web redesign team
