Doing Cool Stuff Despite Your CMS

PST10 Poster Sessions Track

A content management system, like any enterprise software, includes assumptions about the way your organization works. Sometimes those assumptions are right (or at least workable), but sometimes they're not. Often, you discover those little challenges late in the process. Fear not! You have not wasted thousands of dollars and thousands of hours on something that can't work for you. If you're not afraid to get your hands a little dirty in the guts of web server software, there's usually a way to fix things and come out looking like a genius. I will show off some of the tricks we've used at Mount Holyoke in order to have Web content that our CMS just can't handle.
