Becoming an Editor

In the University system members of campus who can edit, maintain and upload to university websites are referred to as "editors".

Access to edit live Drupal 7 websites is restricted.

You must first be approved as an editor before you can update an existing website or create a new website. The approval process takes time, requires training and cannot be done immediately.

The process applies to all faculty, staff and students. Previous experience with other University platforms or software does not create an exception to this policy.

Step 1 - Review Editing Policy

Read the Website Editing Policy so you understand your obligations and responsibilities as a website editor.

Step 2 - Application

Fill out the online Website Editor Application form

Filling out this form provides the necessary information needed to start your approval process.

Step 3 - Training

Schedule your training. You must complete the basic class before you can be approved as an editor.

The class schedule and registration can be found at www.uwindsor.ca/drupal/training

Step 4 - Access Request

Let your site administrator/dept. head/director know when you have completed the class.

They will create a Help Ticket requesting you be given the appropriate access.

You should only request access using a Help Ticket when you have applied and been trained.
