The TYPO3 web content management system (CMS) will be unavailable beginning 5 p.m. Friday, April 21, until 6 p.m. Sunday, April 23, during a backend system upgrade.
CMS authors will not be able to log in to TYPO3 to edit/publish any content during that time. However, page content on live sites will remain available to visitors during the upgrade process. This includes CMS workspaces for www.ndsu.edu, www.ndepscor.ndus.edu, www.tri-college.org and slsc.ndus.edu.
This upgrade is only to TYPO3, not to the standard NDSU HTML template. Web pages will remain visually unchanged and will look the same to visitors after the upgrade.
After the upgrade, CMS authors will notice an updated look to the backend user interface, but the TYPO3 features will remain unchanged. Updates also will be posted at https://www.ndsu.edu/cms/upgrade_2017/.
Contact the NDSU IT Help Desk at 701-231-8685 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need assistance.
