We deployed just one site today: Career and Employment Services. But with that deployment we are officially at 50% of pages processed. Of the 13,000 pages that we had to work through this year, we’ve either migrated, cut, or archived half of them.Have a good weekend!
Three more sites are now live in Drupal:
Some of the other, more exciting (for us, anyway!) things we’ve been doing this week include implementing a 700% performance improvement in our Migration Tracker and cutting 20,000 lines of old, unused Drupal Module Code out (this doesn’t directly impact speed, except in some special situations, but it still feels good!).
Three more sites are up in Drupal this week, including some that were never on the web before:
There’s also been a good deal of progress toward improving our backend setup, including fixing our version control server, more tuning and testing of our two reverse proxy servers, and quite a bit of work in fixing our forms handling. Expect to see bigger chunks in Drupal next week!
We’re celebrating Friday (and Star Wars Day) by deploying another three sites to Drupal:
We also upgraded Drupal yesterday afternoon, fixing a number of security bugs and making it easier to properly encrypt and cache pages. Hopefully you won’t notice a thing. But it should make our lives a lot easier.
We’re finishing out the week by deploying even more sites into Drupal. Here’s the day’s list:
There’s another 181 pages ready to go, so expect even more to slip in next week. If you’re in need of training, be sure to check out the schedule.
We launched a bunch of new sites in Drupal yesterday afternoon:
- Academic Learning Skills
- Notary Public Listing
- Fitness Education Center
- American Association For Women in Community Colleges
Be sure to check out their new (but temporary!) new look, as we continue to move toward moving all the Lane sites into Drupal!
So, it’s been two weeks since my last post. What have we been up to?
First, we set up a new Google Mini, which gives us access to updated software that’s years newer than what we were using for search. We’ve also changed what pages we’re searching. Instead of only searching the Lane Website, we’re now including some of our other websites, including Titan Athletics and the LCC Knowledge Network.
Tuning a search server is pretty tricky, and since ours is indexing over 50,000 webpages, any adjustments we make take some time to see – sometimes hours. But we’re watching the logs, and trying to make it easier to find the things that you search for most.
We’ve also deployed a few more of our websites to Drupal. Here’s a list of all the “chunks” of the site that are now hosted on Drupal:
- College Catalog
- Successful Aging Institute
- Senior Companion Program
- Affirmative Action
- Cottage Grove Campus
- Florence Campus
- Health, Physical Education and Athletics Department
- Course Schedule
- Adult Basic and Secondary Education
- Animal Support Committee
- Información para Latinos
- Multicultural Center
- College Online Policy and Procedure System
- Associated Students of Lane Community College
- Workforce Development
There’s a ton more “chunks” to do, but we’re making progress. As always, please let us know if you spot something not working! If you’re responsible for your department website, check out the ATC Training Schedule to to find a workshop so you can get trained.
