May 2021 Meeting Notes

Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 2:00pm

Governance Board update

  • Go URL links will be removed after two years of inactivity (clicks). Done in order to keep database running smoothly and clear our unused entries.
  • Going to review subdomain requests every two weeks. We've had several lately that were rejected (should have been Go URLs).

Mindsets Discussion – Andrew Swenson – Academic Services and Enrollment Management

  • Discussion of information learned about how prospective students move through the website and what kinds of information they're looking for.

WebAudit Metrics


  • ALT description
    • Describe the image. Be specific.
    • Recommended length: 80 - 125 characters
    • Avoid keyword stuffing. Good alt text helps your SEO
    • "Photo of..." is unnecessary, do not use
    • Pro tip: A period at the end of your alt text provides a brief, courteous pause for screen readers
  • SR text - if using a CTA or link like "Learn More" or "Read More," give contextual information about that link using the "dcf-sr-only" class.

Framework updates and discussion

  • 5.3 updates including underlining footer links that aren't list items, cards-as-links, fixing figcaption in slideshow

UNLcms updates

  • Cleanup of old/abandoned CMS sites
  • Transitioning of www sites to subdomains
