Upcoming Release: Wally

Meet Wally the Goldendoodle! The star of our 3rd Quarter release of Fiscal Year 2024 is the trusty sidekick of Joel Crawford-Smith, senior web accessibility administrator and meticulous reviewer of all pre-launch Sites Pro sites. Wally is quite the man about town and can often be found on the trails and underneath the dinner tables of Durham's hottest spots.

Here are some of the bigger features on tap for Wally:

  • A full-width video hero option for more engaging page layouts
  • Filtering list content blocks by multiple Categories (instead of just one)
  • Displaying optional Summary text on Profiles and Scholars Profiles in People Lists

Wally will also include a variety of usability, accessibility, performance, and technical improvements to existing functionality, such as:

  • Main menu
  • Search engine optimization of Scholars Profiles
  • Search filtering logic
  • Social sharing
  • Styling on tablets and smaller screens
  • Technical infrastructure and feed imports

The Wally release will be rolled out seamlessly to all Sites Pro live, staging, and content/admin websites throughout the third quarter. Look for a detailed update on this website and Microsoft Teams when Wally is complete.
