Those who’ve been at IC more than a few years and been involved with the web — maintaining their department or office website, or updating their faculty or staff profile — should be familiar with Web Profile Manager. Typically referred to as WPM, it served as the college’s content management system (CMS) for over a decade.
Now the time has come to power the system off. The planned date of shutdown is April 1. What does this mean for site visitors and site managers?
The crucial takeaway is this: Any content still being served from WPM will no longer be published. In other words, if a site is still in WPM, users will no longer see it as of April 1.
Content managers need not fear losing access to their WPM content right away, though. They will still be able to log into the system and access their profiles for a few more months. The tentative date for total shutdown is June 1.
