Web Strategy Meeting 06.14.12

MIIS Homepage News – New “Request Info” & “Apply Now” Buttons

How the Website Works – Third Party Code

  • Our Drupal CMS does not support embed codes from third party services for security reasons
  • Instead the Drupal community builds integrations with third party services through modules that our programmers at Middlebury review and adapt to our needs
  • All code changes and additions, whether they’re worked on by myself or our Middlebury programmers, are subject to review by at least one other programmer
