For those interested in the latest CommonSpot implementation status, we don’t have much exciting news to report – yet.

The good news is that we’re working hard to make our first CMS template represent the new academic design, be user-friendly, and easy to maintain by our users. We are finding that doing this right takes time and research (while climbing the learning curve). The time required is even longer as we fit the CMS work in among other important projects in our development queue.

We are currently in the process of installing CommonSpot’s Application Development Framework (ADF) which will allow us to develop custom web applications within the CMS. The ADF will also help with the build of our main navigation in the academic template.

Deciding to move forward with the ADF and completing the actual installation of it has delayed us a bit, but we hope to be moving forward again very soon. Our rollout timeline will depend on how quickly our new template can be ready after the ADF is in place.

We will keep you updated as things progress.
