Originally published 11 July 2003

Why has the homepage changed again?

The latest insite homepage has gone live today. It is a modified version of the insite homepage that went live on Monday 23 June. We have listened carefully to the comments that came in after the first new version went live and have tried to address the most common issues.

  • The new insite home has more white space.
  • It is less 'busy' than the previous version.
  • We have reduced the amount of information on the page.
  • We have added tabs for the Staff and Student pages to make navigation more user-friendly.
  • We have reverted to a three-column format.

We publicised the fact that we were going to modify the homepage on insite itself and have been inviting you to comment further this week. The response to the planned changes was positive so we implemented the changes this morning.

Why did the homepage have to change in the first place?

We are constantly striving to make it easier for you to find the information that you need. We wanted insite to continue to act as a doorway into useful content on academic and administrative sites and as a provider of news, information and discussion opportunity in its own right.

The decision to change the homepage was made in line with the plan to put all of insite into Sitebuilder. Putting insite into Sitebuilder means that we are able to introduce a cohesive look and feel to the University's webpages.

How do I get to the external homepage?

you look at http://www.warwick.ac.uk from home you will see the external web site because you are not using a computer on campus. To see the external homepage from on campus click on the Warwick logo in the top left-hand corner of the insite homepage.
