Getting started

dotCMS is our Content Management System used to create, maintain, and organize the main UA website.


Content in dotCMS is component of a webpage that can be created, edited, moved to multiple pages, and is stored in a large database for future use.


A webpage is a collection of content items - organized by a template


Files are stand-alone items added to a site that can be displayed on pages (images) or linked to for viewing/download (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.)


A bio is a custom type of content used to create and organize biographical information on members of the UA community.
