Next steps for SiteMaker Transition project coming in August

July 28, 2015  //  FOUND IN: Announcements, Updates & Resources,

The next major milestone for the SiteMaker Transition project is set for Aug. 28, 2015. At that time, all SiteMaker sites will become “read-only.” Sites will remain accessible for viewing, but after that date, no edits will be possible.

View the project roadmap for details on functionality changes in the “read-only” SiteMaker environment, and read the latest project updates for more information.

Here is what you need to do:

  • If you no longer need your site(s), contact the ITS Service Center to have them archived and/or deleted.
  • If you want to keep your site(s), review the options available to you for moving them off of SiteMaker before the service is decommissioned at the end of November 2015. The project team has compiled a list of alternative Web hosting services for consideration.

The Sitemaker Transition project supports the ITS mission of providing an unparalleled IT environment to accelerate creativity and innovation by U-M faculty, students and staff, which in turn supports the university’s teaching, learning and research activities. By replacing unsupported, outdated technology with more robust web development platforms that offer advanced capabilities, we will be able to better meet the changing needs of the university, as well as reduce costs.

Please contact the ITS Service Center if you have questions or concerns.
