Changes to McGill Channels - University News and Events
IT Services is launching a new Channels system to post and distribute News and Events across the McGill Web Management System (WMS). As of 7:00 am on Monday, September 3, the old McGill Channels system will be closed and all existing Channels news/announcements/events listings will be migrated into the new system, which will be available in the WMS on Tuesday, September 4.
What will change for readers:
- Once the new Channels system is implemented, you will notice a new interface on the Channels hub page (www.mcgill.ca/channels), where you can search for news and events by Category and Tag (keywords).
- Any links to specific Channels postings will be broken; they have a new URL structure in the new system. To correct your links, find the old posting from the Channels hub page (www.mcgill.ca/channels) and copy the new URL from the address bar.
- RSS feeds will change and you will have to resubscribe to new feeds. For instructions, see Subscribing to RSS feeds for McGill Channels.
