Shimer College

For Administrators

Your site will have lots and lots of Web pages, with great writing and great photography, managed by a wide variety of stakeholders around your campus community.

It may be a complete departure from your current site; it may be a “reskinning” of the site you’ve already got; or the look of your site may not change at all.

You may have a company (like, say, us for example) providing buildout code.  Or you may be using the code of these pages as a jumping-off point for your build.

In any case, we hope you’ll find LiveWhale a joy to use.  We’ve put a great deal of time, care, and energy into LiveWhale’s codebase, mostly so that most of your users will never, ever have to think about LiveWhale’s codebase.  So those of you who do work with LiveWhale code are very important to us. We want our CMS to be as easy to use under the hood as it is on the front end.

These pages are a work in progress, and cover some of the main things we think you should know about LiveWhale from a back end perspective.  If you have any questions, or if there’s anything we can do to make your LiveWhale experience a great one, please don’t hesitate to email us.

Have a great day!
