What is Finalsite?
 Back to top
The Marketing and Communications Department is implementing Finalsite, a web content management system (CMS), for the face of CCSU web sites. This powerful tool has many features:
  • Ability to edit your web site from any computer with an Internet connection
  • Simple, user-friendly, Word-like editor (no web editing or programming skills required!) 
  • Editing control - share editing rights to entire pages or certain parts of pages 
  • Built-in photo editing and multi-media capabilities – easily add video, photo galleries, and music to your web site

    For more information about Finalsite, visit www.finalsite.com.

 
What software do I need to edit web sites with Finalsite?
 Back to top
There is no software required. Finalsite is a web-based content management system, so all you need is a web browser and an Internet connection.
 
How do I request access to edit a website with Finalsite? 
 Back to top
Early adopters may contact Derek Pierce in the Marketing and Communications department to request access. Your username will be your BlueNet Account username, but you will receive a separate password to access Finalsite.
 
How do I access Finalsite to edit a web site?
 Back to top
Open  your web browser and navigate to the Site Administrator Log in page at http://ccsu.ccsct.com/admin.cfm

Log in using your BlueNet account username and the password that was provided to you when you requested access.

 
What web browsers are recommended? 
 Back to top
PC: Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox

Mac: Firefox

 
What if I forget my password?
 Back to top
Password reset issues will be handled via e-mail. Go to the Site Administrator Log in page at  http://ccsu.ccsct.com/admin.cfm and click on the “Forgot your username/password” link. Your password will be e-mailed to your CCSU e-mail account.  Your password is NOT your BlueNet account password, so it will not change when you change your BlueNet account password.

Online tutorials are available – you do not need an account to access the tutorials.

Workshops to assist you with transitioning your web site to Finalsite will be offered - check the CUTT web site for details.
