CMS Essentials II

For the foreseeable future, all workshops will be presented via Zoom. All those registered for the workshop will receive an email with the Zoom link the morning of or day before the session. If the session is closed, you may contact us at to see if there is still space in the workshop.

You may find it helpful to view this CMS Sunflower video overview before the Essentials training. The video provides a rationale for site migration as well as a sneak peak at some of the new CMS Sunflower features.

Learn the basics of the new CMS Sunflower (Drupal 8).

This hands-on workshop expands on the CMS Essentials I course with practice on additional content types in KU's new CMS Sunflower (Drupal 8). You will act as an editor in a sandbox website and be guided through Content types, such as a contact page and webforms.

Workshop Agenda:

  • Review of resources and migration timeline
  • Create a Contact page from scratch
  • Create a profile directory
  • Create an image collection
  • Review how to create a webform
