Overview

 

In Franklin, we use a content management system called Drupal to build websites. If you have ever used Wordpress, Joomla, Squarespace or Wix, these are all types of content management systems.

It is helpful to know whether your unit's site is hosted with us, and which version of Drupal your unit is using. This can direct you to the right self-help documentation. 

 

Drupal 7 sites and unit administrators

If you don't see your name in the directory on your unit's site, or if you have another issue with the site's content, you may wish to contact your unit's site administrator. 

Generally Franklin OIT does not make content changes to unit sites without the unit site administrator's approval.

Drupal 8 sites and unit administrators

Over the next few years, we will transition sites to the latest version of Drupal, Drupal 8. The following units currently have sites in Drupal 8.

As mentioned above, if you don't see your name in the directory on your unit's site, or if you have another issue with the site's content, you may wish to contact your unit's site administrator. 

Generally Franklin OIT does not make content changes to unit sites without the unit site administrator's approval.

My unit is not listed anywhere

A few Franklin units have very customized sites, or are hosted elsewhere.

  • The Hugh Hodgson School of Music is Drupal 7 site, but it is heavily customized and therefore has its own special documentation held by those with access to the built-in applications.
  • The Lamar Dodd School of Art is a Drupal 7 site hosted by Franklin OIT, but it is moving to EITS.
  • Drama, Physics and Astronomy, and Geography are not hosted by Franklin. 
  • Some other centers and institutes are also not hosted by Franklin.
