If you maintain a section of the main university website using the TerminalFour CMS, you must ensure your section uses 'Foundation' pages.
There are three different styles of pages currently used in the CMS for the main University website. These are:
- Foundation (e.g. https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/)
- Core (e.g. https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/current-staff/communications-and-marketing/)
- Department (e.g. http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/confucius-institute/)
Foundation is the most recent style, using the latest page layouts and content types. The technical team are focused on ensuring the Foundation style is as accessible as possible, meeting the WCAG standards required.
So, sections of University website need to transfer to the Foundation style, with the two older styles (Core and Department) gradually being removed.
- If your CMS website has been created since 23rd September 2018 (or since then there have been substantial changes made to a website that was created before that date), it must be moved to Foundation pages by 23rd September 2019.
- If your CMS website was created before 23rd September 2018 (and there have not been any substantial changes made to it since 23rd September 2018), you will need to move it to Foundation pages by 23rd September 2020.
If you have archived content in the CMS that is no longer maintained, it doesn’t need to be transferred. However, please inform email@example.com so it can be added to the Accessibility Statement.
