A New KU CMS is Almost Here!
KU Marketing & Communications and KU Information Technology have developed a new version of the KU content management system called KU CMS - Sunflower. The new KU CMS uses an updated version of Drupal, so expect a mix of numerous new elements with some familiar concepts and features. Be on the lookout for more details via email in early-August.
Want a Sneak Peak?
Take a look at admissions.ku.edu. That is the first live KU CMS - Sunflower site. It was built almost entirely using the new sections and clonable templates that will be available to you.
When Do Sites Need to Be Migrated?
All current KU CMS sites in Drupal 7 must be manually migrated to KU CMS - Sunflower by November 21, 2021. KU IT assistance is available to help meet this timeline.
When Can I Request a KU CMS – Sunflower Site?
September 8, 2020
What You Can Do Now to Get Ready?
We strongly encourage all CMS site owners to begin the site migration process as soon as possible. To assist you, we are providing a step-by-step Site Migration Plan. Although KU CMS - Sunflower sites will not be available until Sept. 8, you can begin work on the first seven steps of the site migration plan today. View the Site Migration Plan
New cms.ku.edu Coming in mid-July
In mid-July, cms.ku.edu will be updated to exclusively detail information and resources for KU CMS - Sunflower. This legacy version of cms.ku.edu will continue to be available after that time at cms-drupal7.ku.edu until all sites in the original Drupal 7 KU CMS are migrated to KU CMS - Sunflower.

The KU CMS

The University of Kansas uses a content management system (CMS) to ensure a consistent user experience, rich content and easy access to the information KU site visitors are seeking.
