UBC’s Common Look and Feel
The accessible, performant CLF WordPress theme is enabled by default on all sites on CMS and is updated by the CTLT team ensuring your sites are always on brand.
Timely and no-cost support is provided via ServiceNow tickets by CTLT and is available to all faculties and units. First-tier support may be provided by individual faculty support units.
Gravity Forms is a WordPress plugin which allows you to capture information from your site’s visitors, send notifications and emails on submission, and automatically create fresh user-generated content on your site. Gravity Forms is available on all sites on CMS.
The UBC Event Block – developed by CTLT – allows you to display your unit’s events that are published on the main UBC Events site. You can choose a calendar or list view, as well as be specific about which events to show.
The Content Visibility suite of plugins allows you to decide when, where, and to whom your content is shown. For example, you may only want to show some content for those signed in to your site, or perhaps only between certain dates and time; or both!
