The new, renewed aalto.fi has been launched in stages starting in the beginning of October. The launch process begins with publishing one of the main hubs, Study at Aalto, which has not been visible on the new site before now.
Creating a whole new aalto.fi
Blog - renewing and upgrading aalto.fi
Welcome to the blog on the Aalto.fi communications platform renewal project. Follow the blog and keep abreast on its latest developments!
The blog keeps you up-to-date on the latest renewal developments, as well as tells you the ins and outs of Drupal and what it has to offer in creating your content.
Siteimprove is a tool that helps the editors in improving the quality of the content. It automatically scans the pages, and seeks for improvements, such as broken links and misspellings.
In renewing aalto.fi, receiving feedback on the beta.aalto.fi is really important. This gives the project team ideas and suggestions for possible amendments and improvements for the new site.
The demo version of the new aalto.fi is now public for everyone to see and browse. Some big updates have taken place during the past weeks, and the development of the site continues towards the final version due later this year.
The series of introducing article components continues! This week, you can familiarise yourself with image components.
The new aalto.fi includes multiple new components, that are most likely not familiar to everyone, yet. Therefore, we now start a series of introductions to some of these components.
On the new communications platform, each research group will have their own page to present their research, group members and other relevant group information.
We have created a checklist to help all editors focus on the right actions before the demo site will be public to people outside Aalto University on 15 June.
One of the six main hubs of the new aalto.fi is the Services hub that collects all Aalto’s services on a simple page with a search function. Now, we have the first version of the Services hub ready in the demo for you to review.
We are organising several drop-in clinics to help the editors in reviewing and editing their content on the aalto.fi demo site.
The demo version was published to the Aalto staff to show the new structure of the renewed aalto.fi. The demo includes the new site logic and the components for editors to edit articles.
The aalto.fi project is taking a huge step forward as the demo – the first draft of the renewed aalto.fi – will be published to the Aalto staff on 9 May 2018 in Dipoli.
The project for renewing aalto.fi was kick-started at the end of 2017. The aim is to create a digital extension of our campus – a whole new communications platform – which provides an easy starting point for everyone’s day.
Drupal tutorials guide you in easy steps on how to use the many components available to you. In total, there will be some 15 tutorials which are added here in due course.
We introduce a new component – liftup – that links one page to another. This tutorial explains how to do that, and automatically feed content by using the liftup component.
