Website Changes Are Coming Next Week!

Preview of Shoreline's new website header

On Monday, November 5, we’ll be updating the styles of our website and implementing a revised menu header. These changes will happen on shoreline.edu (not the intranet). In the following weeks, they will also happen on catalog.shoreline.edu as well as the class schedule and campus directory.

What does this mean?

  • You’ll see new fonts, colors, left menu layout, heading sizes, and button shapes. Content will not change at this point – just the look and feel of the site.
  • The secondary menu in the header (above the main menu) has been streamlined and will include new options for Contact, Visit, Give, and Apply.
  • Links to Current Students, International, and Class Schedule will appear on the left side of the secondary menu.
  • We are removing the “Information for” drop-down list from the header. Links to Faculty & Staff, Alumni, and Employers will move to the footer of the site. The search bar will be moved to the right side of the screen.

Do I need to do anything different the week of November 5?

Between November 5-7, we ask that you do not make any changes at all to your pages.

  • If you need to make a change during that time, please expect some delays. If it’s an urgent change that needs to happen immediately (such as incorrect contact information or dates), please let websupport@shoreline.edu know.
  • Event Submissions – You will still be able to submit events to the College Calendar. These changes should not impact that process or the appearance of your events.

What should I do if I notice any style or formatting errors or glitches?

Please e-mail websupport@shoreline.edu after November 7 if you notice any of the following issues, and please avoid trying to fix them yourself:

  • Headings that look out of proportion
  • Buttons are not stacking correctly or are misaligned
  • Contact box text is misaligned or missing
  • Images are oddly cropped or missing
  • Video or play button is missing
  • Table information is not displaying properly

Does this mean the website redesign work is done?

No, more website redesign work will continue as we launch new pages for academic programs in early 2019, and then we’ll overhaul other sections of the site (including Apply & Aid pages, student support pages, the Current Students page, the home page, and menus). Please watch for more messages about these changes in the coming weeks.

Thank you!
