Personal Website Resources
Stanford IT Services now heavily favors Drupal as the primary web platform for new university-related websites. This site uses the Drupal open source Content Management System (CMS). All Stanford affiliates are strongly encouraged to use the Stanford Sites service to support their university work, which installs a Drupal-ready web framework on a university server. Site owners can assign authoring, editing and publishing tasks to anyone they'd like without the need to know any programming languages.
For larger university groups, several Stanford-themed Drupal templates are available from IT services.
For questions about Drupal and its use across campus, please visit and become part of the Stanford Tech Commons.
Other Web & Collaboration Tools
Stanford IT Services provides many useful web-based tools and services to manage documents and online content, in addition to Drupal, including WordPress, document management (Google), forms, survey tools and more.
