Modern Campus CMS v11 Upgrade

Pepperdine's web CMS system, Modern Campus (formerly known as Modern Campus CMS), was upgraded from version 10 to version 11 on December 2, 2021. When you log in you will see the updated user interface. All editing access and most all editing steps remain the same as before.



Major Changes

Interface Design and Function

  • The top menu bar is now white instead of blue.
  • All hover actions have been changed to click actions for improved accessibility. Look for the up/down arrows or the ellipsis to open/close collapsed menu options.

  2. Global search: Search your Modern Campus CMS account for content, users and more.
  3. Site Selector: If you have access to edit multiple sites you can switch to another site.
  4. File navigation sidebar: Expand to see and interact with the file structure of your website.

When you first use Modern Campus CMS version 11, you will want to clear your web browser cache. This step is crucial to enjoy the new look-and-feel and avoid errors or issues.

Some users have reported having issues with logging in for the first time during a session. This happens on some browsers, but if you close the page and click the © to login again it will open correctly (without you needing to type your password again).
