Griffith University portals and index pages provide navigation to a wide range of websites. The majority of Griffith Websites are created in the CMS so they can be easily maintained by local staff who act as publishers for the website.
Other websites which have specific needs which cannot reasonably be met using the CMS can be created using other technologies.
CMS website support
Support for creating and maintaining CMS websites is provided by OMC Web Services. Information and contact details are available from the Web Publishing site.
For general assistance creating and maintaining CMS websites refer to the Web publishing site.
Restricting CMS content
It is Griffith Policy to have all content publicly available wherever appropriate. However, there are times when it is appropriate to restrict access to some or all of a sites content. The Portals and Search team can assist staff who wish to restrict access to CMS content to an appropriate target audience.
In the CMS content can be restricted to one or more of the following user groups:
- Senior leaders
- Griffith staff
- Anyone with a Griffith sNumber
CMS websites must have an address starting with "https://intranet.secure.griffith.edu.au/…" to have some or all of their content restricted. Other than having a special URL and being able to secure content, these sites are the same as all other CMS websites and are managed in the same place with the same tools.
If you have a website at an address starting with "https://intranet.secure.griffith.edu.au/…" and would like us to restrict access to the site or its content, you can use the 'Access restriction request form' below to request it.
If your site has an address starting with https://www.griffith.edu.au/…" it cannot be be secured. However there are various other options including:
- moving part or all of the site to an appropriate address that can be secured
- creating all of part of the site on another site that can be secured
- creating documents (PDF, etc.) at a secure address and linking to them on your existing site.
The Portals and Search team can discuss these and other options with you. To request a consultation email us at the address below providing your contact details, a link to your site(s), and a brief explanation of your requirements.
