Ensemble CMS is the Web content management system for Virginia Tech. It allows website contributors to update their Web content without worrying about the technical details of creating, editing, and maintaining websites.
There are users reporting an inability to edit content after updating to the latest version of Java. The Ephox editor will stop loading at 33%. The new window may become unresponsive. The Java plugin may crash or crash the entire browser.
Users may have to downgrade to the previous version of Java, Java 7 update 60. After the downgrade, please make sure your cache is turned on for Java and clear any security certificates related to Percussion or Ephox.
The template that was introduced during the 2013 redesign of the Virginia Tech homepage has been released to the Ensemble community. Those who want to apply the template to their website should visit the responsive template page and fill out the accompanying request form to schedule a consultation meeting. Those meetings are held in the basement conference room of the Media Building, usually on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
This page is intended to provide answers to some questions that have been raised by site owners and users of the CMS as we begin the process to identify and procure a new system.
