How Do I Update My Existing Web Site?
There are two ways New Paltz Web pages are updated.
- OmniUpdate, the college’s Content Management System (CMS)
- Web Services Request form on my.newpaltz.edu
If you make updates more than once a month to your site, you may benefit from using our content management system, OmniUpdate. The system will allow you to make updates to your site at your own pace and frequency, and you can access it from any PC or Mac. If you would like to receive training on the OmniUpdate system (which is required before you can be granted editing access), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Web Services Request Form
If you do not use OmniUpdate to maintain your site, please complete the online work order form. Faculty/staff can find this form in http://my.newpaltz.edu under the Faculty/Staff Services tab > Employee Resources > Work order form for Web projects (updates & new).
Please be as specific as possible when submitting change requests for existing Web sites. We will need to know the exact addresses of the pages that need changes (ex. www.newpaltz.edu/academics/descriptions.html). If you send us electronic files with new text to add to your site (Word compatible files only please), or if you are sending new photos to be used, please send them in a Photoshop-readable format (preferably JPG or TIF), and let us know the name of each file attachment, the exact address of the page it is to be used on, and the exact section of the page it is to be added to. Please do not embed photos within the Word document.
If your updates require you to send files on media such as CD/DVD or USB flash drive, please drop them off in the Office of Communication & Marketing and indicate the project name you submitted online. In addition, please note in the online submission description area that media is coming.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND CHANGES IN HTML FORMAT WITHOUT CONSULTING WITH THE WEB OFFICE FIRST.
Requests for updates must come directly from a faculty, professional faculty, or classified staff member to our office.
