Drupal: Content Creation and Page Management
- Service:Drupal Software at UCSF
How is digital content created, edited, and managed in the Drupal CMS?
Drupal is a digital content management system (CMS) routinely used for UCSF websites. In some cases a site content editor or content manager may curate the same information for websites and additional digital channels, such as employee profiles, email, social media, and events.
Generally two roles are assigned to people responsible for keeping a website up to date:
- Business Owner
- Day-to-day Technical Support
Responsibilities vary across the many research labs, degree programs, school departments, etc.
