<table>to meet new HTML 5 standards
The styles represented in the following files have been rolled into the global style sheet. Thus these files are marked for removal on Sept. 28, 2018:
It’s important to remove outdated code and images when we make updates to the web template. As a result, we are adding a deprecation procedure to make sure users have time to make necessary changes.
These changes automatically apply to Web Press and the MSU Magazine Pro theme. However, standalone sites and applications may need additional review.
We will use the following procedure to reduce the number of update-related issues:
The following example may help:
Web and new media determines an outdated footer with old branding needs removal. Therefore, we note it as “deprecated” in a scheduled blog post as well as additional locations. Next, we make the changes public, giving users 90 days to make any necessary changes. Finally, after 90 days, we remove the deprecated footer from production.

As we continue to make monthly updates to the template, one aspect that has received a lot of focus by our team is our global stylesheet. We originally utilized ASPX files in a way similar to media queries to serve up the final stylesheet based on device type (desktop/tablet, phone, etc.). This certainly created a very efficient stylesheet, but at the cost of additional maintenance and a blurring of style and structure.
As a result we have decided to switch to a more versatile, easier to maintain and still very efficient stylesheet architecture. We are also deprecating the current global.aspx and wp.aspx stylesheets.
Global.aspx and wp.aspx as well as their related CSS files have been deprecated and are marked for removal on Sept. 28, 2018 (version 2018.9.0).
This includes the following within /styles/2015/:
The following pattern-specific styles will also be removed along with the global styles as they have now been rolled into the main architecture:
This does not currently affect sites referencing the 2010 and 2013 style sheets.
There is nothing you need to do if you are using the following platforms to manage your site or blog:
Beginning June 2018, these platforms will directly link to the new stylesheets.
For sites and applications outside of Web Press (including third-party applications) that currently link to the global styles, you will need to update the following link within the
<link rel="Stylesheet" media="all" href="https://missouristate.info/styles/2015/global.aspx">
Use one of the following new links based on the campus styles you incorporate:
<link rel="Stylesheet" media="all" href="https://missouristate.info/styles/msuwds/main-sgf.css">
<link rel="Stylesheet" media="all" href="https://missouristate.info/styles/msuwds/main-wp.css">
If you have any questions regarding this change or need assistance with how to update your styles, please contact the web and new media help desk.
On Monday, Administrative Council approved changes to two Web-related policies.
Three major changes were made to the Web policy:
Policy extended to cover all University Web content, including official University presences on external resources.
The policy now applies to any website that is hosted through University resources or that represents the University or the professional persona of its employees.
A website is any collection of content offered through the Web, including traditional sites, blogs and social networking sites.
Credit card processing must use approved methods.
University websites must use an approved method for collecting online payments:
All official websites must use the standard header and footer.
Central, university unit, course and sponsored organization websites must include the standard University masthead and footer on all pages, unless an exemption is approved by the director of Web and new media.
The Media Policy was removed from the Policy Library because the University no longer offers on-campus streaming media services. The Web Policy addresses media included within websites, including live streaming services.
