How content is published

Site moderators approve content for publication. Once the moderator has approved content, it will be published during the next cycle. The publishing cycle occurs in two stages:

1. moves the page from T4 to UMD’s staging server, which backs up the page and performs security scans
2. moves the page from the staging server to the live server; then, it is “live”

All content must go through these two stages before the content is live on the university web site. Due to the volume of web content in T4, there is a necessary time lag between the first and second stages.
