This guide provides instructions and information about Stanford Web Services Jumpstart platform, based on Drupal 7. We're building out the Drupal 8 (D8) platform — the new framework for Stanford Sites in 2020. In place of Jumpstart services, you'll soon see a new User Guide to help set up your website on the D8 platform.
Your website combines the advantages of Drupal with a streamlined and simplified user experience provided by Stanford Web Services. We hope that your Jumpstart site will allow you to get started quickly with little to no training required.
WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors like the one built into your website makes it easy to update webpages without any knowledge of HTML.
The pages of your Jumpstart site are where you add the majority of your content. All pages can be renamed and new pages can be easily added.
Blocks are used throughout your site to highlight important and timely information, and in the footer section to add persistent information.
Users can have site owner or editor accounts. There are no limits on the number of users you can have for your site.
Jumpstart is built with multiple interchangable options of Stanford-branded, mobile-responsive, accessible themes.
Jumpstart comes with placeholder images that can easily be changed. You can also upload documents, videos, and audio recordings.
