Drupal - How to Get a New Site

Sonoma State's central website publishing platform, Drupal, is available for all official departments - e.g. Divisions, Schools, Departments and Programs.  SSU Drupal is intended to build sites that are primarily public-facing, though there are tools to limit access to content to Seawolf account holders (students, employees, and some contractors with LDAP credentials).

Most SSU departments already have a Drupal website, or are in the process of migrating from the University's legacy web platform, web.sonoma.edu, to Drupal.

New departments may request an SSU Drupal site by emailing the Web Office at barbara.moore@sonoma.edu.  Please include:

  • the official name of the department
  • the desired hostname for the URL (hostname.sonoma.edu)
  • the purpose of the website
  • the SSU employees who will help to build, edit and maintain the site

Requests for sites that are not for official departments are not automatically granted.  Usually, sites for specific projects or events should be build as part of the sponsoring department's site.  Contact the Web Office if you have questions about this..

The Web Office will respond with any follow-up questions needed to establish the site.
