Important Note:

URLs, naming conventions and folders are of critical importance. Drupal does not have a folder structure but we have mocked up structures to bring over the existing URLs. When making a new page (especially in the offices area of the website):

  • Uncheck the auto-URL feature (scroll down to URL path settings tab, at the bottom of the page in Edit mode)
  • Create a URL that starts with your office’s acronym or name as shown in the existing file structures.

This will put the page in your area, and make it possible for you to locate it when needed.

Drupal does not allow duplicate file names, so it is critical that you not create files with easily confused names. Searching for your materials in Drupal to make edits may prove confusing. Login, locate published materials on the website and then edit them.
