Just to let everyone know, I will be releasing the new homepages to all of the sites on Monday May 21st. This is due to the fact that I am going to be on vacation from May 5 through May 16. I could release the new design next week, but I’d hate to release stuff before I leave in case changes need to be made. In conjunction with this change, the course search “button” will disappear on this date as well. I would put a course search link in your left menu on the pages in which you want it to appear.
On a final note, in preparation for this change as well, you are going to need a new menu for the home page. Personally what I would do is duplicate the current “Quicklinks” list that is on your home pages. If you want to be prepared for launch day, simply go to any page and create a new custom menu, name it “Home Page Menu” or “Quicklinks” or whatever you want, and build those links, then set that page back to whatever menu you want. On May 21 all you will then need to do is login, go to your homepage and change the menu to your “Quicklinks” menu, and you will be all set. If you want to make a course search link that links directly to course search with your campus already selected you can follow the guide I made on how to do that.
If you have any questions please email me but all that is required is for you to do two things to each of your sites:
- Put a course search link on the pages you want it to appear.
- Create a custom menu to use on your homepage for May 21.
