Yesterdays rollout of the tables snippet

Dear web publishers, 

Yesterday we rolled out a central update to the table snippet with the aim of modernising the look and feel to be more consistent with the recent changes made to Chronos. Following testing, we reverted the update as it had unintended affects to a minority of webpages that use tables to lay content out.

Our intention is to plan for a more gradual rollout in the new year where the changes will be available on www-test for several weeks so that all departmental web publishers have an opportunity to have a look through their pages and let us know if there are any problems.

It is recommended that where possible, web best practice should be used when laying out content in a page. This can accomplished using our layout snippets. All support documentation on layout snippets, such as the columns or grids, can be found on our Knowledegbase:

If you would like any assistance in updating your pages or would like some advice on whether tables, columns or grids should be used, please feel free to contact who would be happy to help.

Many thanks for your patience and apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Best wishes,
Web Support

Launch of the new Publisher Control Panel for web publishers

Dear web publishers,

Web Solutions are pleased to announce the launch of the Departmental Publisher Control Panel (PCP). Once enabled, it appears on every page of your departments website on www-test to provide a convenient way to access commonly used internal systems and sites that web publishers make use of (news blog, events factory, configuration tool, Google analytics and the Knowledgebase). These links are unique to each department/site which provides a personalised central repository of convenient links for web publishers.

More information on the PCP can be found here:

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as we add more features in the coming months to help make web publishing easier for you and your teams.

Kindest regards,
Web Support
