  • New Form Builder for Reason

    October 28, 2014

    Web Services is pleased to announce the release of a new tool for creating web forms in Reason, Carleton's web content management system.

    If you've created forms before, we think you'll find that the process is now much easier. If you're new to web forms, then this is a great time to start!

    You don't need to do anything special to take advantage of this new tool; just edit a new or existing form in Reason. All of your existing forms will continue to work -- only the form editing interface has changed.

    If you'd like a quick overview, there are instructions and a video tutorial on the Reason Documentation site.

    You're always welcome to drop by a Web Wednesday event (Wednesdays 10am-noon in Sayles Hill) with questions.

    If web forms aren't available on your site and you'd like them to be, or if you encounter any problems with the new form builder, please submit a request to webservices@carleton.edu.

  • If you haven't searched for something on Carleton's web site recently, be prepared for a pleasant surprise. The Web Services Group has rolled out a new search interface powered by an on-site Google server, so the search page and the results you see will look a lot like what you expect from Google's own site.

    Our previous search solution had been showing its age and not producing consistent results, so we decided to follow the lead of many other colleges our size and adopt the Google-based service. Because the Google server places some limitations on how fully we can integrate with other data sources, we've had to simplify the search experience somewhat, but we've preserved the campus directory results sidebar that many people have come to rely on.

    We hope the new search page helps you find what you need!

  • It’s no secret, the world is going mobile. And here at Web House, Carleton’s mobile website strategy has been a hot topic. While a standalone Carleton mobile site is in the plans, we’re already taking a big step toward mobile optimization with Responsive Design.
