Content is like water
By: BGS, Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Responsive web design is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
-Wikipedia

This week the web developers updated the Slideshow slide and the Homepage Slide content types of our websites to be more responsive. You can check it out on your large monitor by resizing the Home page (drag the edge of the page from the left or the right) until it morphs into responsive mode or check out the same Home page on your smart phone or tablet.

Examples of Slideshow Slides can be found at http://cfaes.osu.edu and Homepage Slides at https://training.cfaes.ohio-state.edu  Login to your site and check your content type to see if you are using either one of these slide shows. This update does not apply to Extension County sites.

Another addition is an Edit button. When you are logged into your site you will see an Edit button on each slide, you can now make updates and changes directly by using this feature.

Updated documentation for Slideshow Slide and Homepage Slide is here.

Buckeye Alert
By: BGS, Wednesday, April 06th, 2016

The Buckeye Alert System is a cross platform notification system allowing the university to reach out to students and staff over nearly two dozen communication methods.  All CFAES Drupal sites now participate in the Buckeye Alert System.  When the university issues an alert our sites will display the message at the top of our pages with a red banner.  The addition of the Buckeye Alert System does not interfere with any other site functionality and our websites will behave normally during an Alert.

For more about how the University communicates across the campus in an emergency see the Department of Public Safety Website: https://dps.osu.edu/alert-notices.
