Upcoming York header change

This email went out in July:

The York University home page will have a new look as of August 8th, 2011 as part of Phase 1 of our website initiative. The top of the home page refresh will impact your websites and will require some effort within your department or Faculty to ensure your website(s) adopts the new internal or external top global navigation bars (depending on where your site is situated) in order to create a seamless user experience.

External Global Navigation Bar: Replacement of the external top global navigation banner will be coordinated with the major units that are currently using the external York web page template to launch on the same date as the launch of the refreshed home page. These units will be contacted in mid-July and a copy of the new banner code will be available by July 25 so that units can test the code with their existing pages prior to the launch date.

Internal Global Navigation Bar: To facilitate the changeover of the internal top global navigation banner, UIT will be updating the central copies of the internal banner files on the same date as the launch of the refreshed home page. Sites that reference these central files should have the banner seamlessly updated on launch date. However, if your site has local copies of the banner files, please consult this page: on July 25 for more information.

Please contact if you have any concerns regarding the banner update, or encounter any issues post-launch.
