OmniUpdate, the leading web content management system (CMS) provider for higher education, has released version 9.9 of its OU Campus™ CMS. This release includes a highly requested new feature called Dependency Manager.

The Dependency Manager ensures that hyperlinks to pages that are managed within OU Campus are always up to date. If a user decides to rename a page or move it to a new location, the Dependency Manager will automatically update the URL found in the associated pages and update those pages on the live server. If a page is deleted, thereby causing broken hyperlinks, the user is notified to take action on those pages.

The Dependency Manager is particularly important for a higher education website, which may have thousands of web pages written by hundreds of authors. Due to dispersed job locations and vastly different work responsibilities, web content authors may not know each other or be aware of changes made to site content. Because of this, broken links are easy to create. The Dependency Manager fixes them before they are published.


Lance Merker, President and CEO of OmniUpdate, stated, “The Dependency Manager makes internal link checking unnecessary for both site contributors and administrators. Using the same technology OU Campus uses to track content assets, the Dependency Manager works seamlessly without any changes to the user interface.”
