Working with the Parkside Website
The Parkside website (www.uwp.edu) is available for the public presentation of university content. Users can edit their area's web content after completing training on using our CMS (CommonSpot) and becoming an author.
Each area of the website is assigned a specialist from University Marketing. The Marketing Specialist for your area can help you with your site's content and strategy, making sure it's presented in its best light. If you're unsure who is assigned to your department, you can find a list detailing everyone over at University Marketing.

General server maintenance takes place weekly on Wednesday or Friday evenings. Maintenance of note includes, specifically, Windows updates to production servers at the end of each month which may amount to minimal website down time.
The development server is used for training and is periodically refreshed to keep it current. When refreshed, any data altered in the CMS will be lost when overwritten by a live copy of the website.
