Website CMS - Plone

Institutes and facilities can use it to edit the web presence of their facility/institute without programming knowledge. All editing is done in the web browser, the web pages can be edited worldwide from any internet-capable computer.

For whom?


This service is intended for institutes; an employee ID is required to edit the website.

Student university groups do not need an employee ID to operate a Plone portal.

The administration of the overall technical environment is carried out by the university computer centre, while the administration of the web presence is carried out by the respective institution. There are a number of functionalities that are directly activated and usable in all instances. Some functions must first be activated by the decentralised administrators.

What for?

Standardised CMS

    The CMS is to be used so that all the university's websites have the same structure and design. The uniform structure makes it easier for customers to find the information they need and makes it easier for the responsible editors to maintain the websites.

    How does it work?

    To apply for a new portal, please complete our application form.

    In addition, all responsible persons should attend a training session on the software at the beginning. These take place regularly, if necessary you can also make a direct request.


    We will be happy to advise you in advance, set up your portal for you, support you and your colleagues with training and also help you with all questions and problems in your day-to-day business via e-mail or online consultation hours.

    So that we can help you in a targeted and timely manner, please use our inquiry forms.
