Main Informatics website

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The main Informatics web service covers the site accessed via the www.inf.ed.ac.uk URL. Official teaching and administrative information should be hosted on a www.inf.ed.ac.uk URL. There are also some Institute sites which use the same technologies as www.inf.ed.ac.uk.

Over the time that www.inf.ed.ac.uk has been around there have been changes in technology, and things are a little fragmented:

Polopoly
Visiting www.inf.ed.ac.uk actually takes you to pages hosted on the University's central (Polopoly-based) web service. There are other old www.inf.ed.ac.uk URLs (mainly recruitment focused) which will redirect you to Polopoly-based content too. A limited number of staff have publishing access to Polopoly. Updates and corrections are best handled via the Knowledge Management team.
CVS
Originally all www.inf.ed.ac.uk content was managed via our own in-house CVS based tools and scripts. Some parts of www.inf.ed.ac.uk are still managed that way, eg course pages at www.inf.ed.ac.uk/teaching/courses/<course-code>.
Plone
More recently some of the School's management and student services pages have moved to our Plone WCMS service. eg School Services/ and Student Services.
