Cleaning House and Redesigning - Template update for Cal Poly Pomona
On the verge of a new branding effort at Cal Poly Pomona the web team realized after several years of using the same templates it was time for a change. Various contributors had copied and tweaked our templates which led to us having dozens of various templates which became a logistical nightmare. It was no longer easy to change or update the look and feel of our sites.
Inspired by the Cascade User Conference in 2017 we took the burn-it-to-the-ground approach. Through a combination of smart fields, group access, and the Bootstrap framework the team created a brand new single template. This allows our users to create dynamic, responsive, and accessible websites easily.
