Website Style Sheet Updates

Screen Shot 2013-05-17 at 10.37.13 AMThis morning the web team published a series of style sheet changes to production in our continual efforts to provide a progressive template environment. This latest round of updates shouldn’t change too much on the public facing website, but rather the syntax of our coded styles behind the scenes.

As part of the web redesign, the web team has adopted a framework for all new templates being developed. Since Phase One, we’ve been implementing this more flexible, efficient layout system with the responsive front-end framework called Foundation. Foundation is developed in Sass, a powerful CSS pre-processor that helps us write more organized CSS that’s more easily maintained over time. Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more.

As a result of applying standards our base code in preparation of Phase 2 template development, some minor unexpected style changes may appear across University webpages. Please use the feedback form if you see anything out of the ordinary limiting your digital communications or browsing experience.
