Drupal 8 web editor training this January

This week the Web Team will be migrating to Drupal 8, and are excited for the improvements this will bring to our website and web editor interface.

Website updates include a slight tweak in the font and appearance of our navigation menus found in the left-hand sidebar. This will give users a clean menu presentation that is easy to navigate.

Web users will see some slight changes, but this upgrade is intended to enhance web editors’ current toolset and add features that will help them manage their content workflow.

Training for web editors will be offered twice in January through Staff Development. If you have any questions or comments, please contact webteam@grcc.edu.
