Website Kit Manual 2022-2023

What is a Webkit? Briefly, an OPLIN Webkit is a fully-customized content management system (CMS) for your library’s website. We call it a “kit” because we provide a customized shell and technical support, while your library provides the content. Since the back end (the system under the hood) and the front end (the design) are separate pieces, a Webkit can be given an entirely new design at any time, without your library’s staff having to recreate all of the site’s content from scratch. What is Drupal? Your Webkit has been built for you using the Drupal content management system. You need to know very little about Drupal, because four of the five main layers in the Drupal system have already been created for you by OPLIN. The last layer—the actual site content, the words and images that people will see—will be created and managed by you. This is not as hard as it sounds. This simple documentation should be all you need to get started, and OPLIN staff are available to help when you need it.
