Content Expiration and Extension
UNC Asheville takes pride in having the most accurate, up-to-date information on all our websites. To this end, we require every page across campus be reviewed once a year.
Drupal uses a special program to look at each page, and send an email to the author 11 months after the page was first created. Those e-mails look like this:
If you receive an e-mail like this, go ahead and click on the link. Doing so will take you to the page in question, where you can review its contents. You'll want to login to your site and edit the page if it needs any corrections.
Once you're satisfied the page is correct and current, go ahead and click the Extend tab at the top.
You'll see an Extend button on that page. Click it, and your page will live on for another year!
- These reminder -mails are sent to the author of a page, not to the person who edited it last. If one of your site's editors leaves their position, contact email@example.com immediately so we can reassign that person's pages.
- If you ignore these emails, your content will disappear from your site on the expiration date. If you lose content in this way, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you recover it.
- When you first launch your site, you will get some of these emails early; many will be sent out around February 23rd, as the original template pages were created on March 25th, 2010. Go ahead and extend your pages normally, and you'll be good to go until next year.
