  • UTMB Modern Responsive Web Templates

    New responsive web templates now available

    November 1, 2013, 15:27 PM by Pep Valdes

    New institutional web templates have now been released. The templates are responsive; they are designed to work well across a wide array of devices, and take a “mobile first” approach to content delivery. While the new templates look similar to current designs (evolution vs. revolution), they function in a totally different way. We encourage you to visit the templates site and explore what’s available. (For best experience, visit with FireFox or similar modern browser. Templates are designed to degrade gracefully for older versions of IE. )

  • Site Check: testing for quality, broken links, spelling

    November 1, 2013, 15:20 PM by Pep Valdes

    We have been testing a new quality tool that scans UTMB’s public facing sites looking for broken links, misspelled words and accessibility issues. We’ve found it to be very useful during our pilot on utmbhealth.com. For those being scanned in the public utmb.edu domain, we can auto-generate a weekly report for you of potential problems. To request this service, contact us with your directories or sites to be scanned.

  • UTMB Web Site Inventory Tool

    Inventory Tool now being populated, used

    November 1, 2013, 15:16 PM by Pep Valdes

    As part of a larger initiative to update UTMB’s overall web presence, a new digital site inventory is now available. It will be shared with the entire UTMB community. As a developer, you can do a quick search under the “Site Manager” field for all the web resources currently associated with your name. You can log into the site (standard UTMB username and PW) to see additional details, and to add or make updates to the information associated with your resources. This tool is being launched with the information currently available, but we need your help to fill in or correct many gaps. If you have problems or need additional permissions, contact one of the team members below.
