Web Service: Content Management System

Availability

This service is available to official Stetson University departments, non-organizational groups and offices.

What is WebGarage?

WebGarage is what's called a "content management system" or CMS. That is, it's an online program used to manage the content of a website or group of websites. WebGarage allows content authors and website managers, who may not have any experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript or any other web programming language, to manage the creation and maintenance of content from a website. Instead, content authors and website managers can edit their content almost as easily as if they were editing a document in Microsoft Word; the system will then automatically convert their work into HTML code that web browsers can interpret to display the web page.

WebGarage provides a set of templates to suit your content, allowing for multiple columns, photos and embedding photos and videos.

What We Offer

Stetson University uses WebGarage to control all its branded web materials.
