You will not need to do any coding – just upload images into the site and compose your content in our rich text editor.

What are the benefits of the new hosted solution?

  • Allows units with limited resources the ability to establish unit web sites without absorbing the costs with local funds.  For those who already have established web sites, these benefits will be available upon migration.

  • Just as members are able to view the public facing gocivilairpatrol.com site as well as log onto eServices, units will have the ability to retain localized sites, processes and protected (login) pages behind their pubic facing site.  

  • Proper security protocols will be in place to safeguard content from vulnerabilities and hacks.

  • Enhances CAP branding efforts through alignment with gocivilairpatrol.com template.

  • Provides continuity of web management; reducing issue with orphan websites which are especially vulnerable to hacking attempts and are the most likely to not comport with the CAP branding requirements.

  • Ensures that an automatic and secure backup process is in place.

  • Provides a responsive web design that will render on computers, tablets and phones.

What type of capabilities will be available in the new CMS?

The unit website template is being modeled after the gocivilairpatrol.com format.  All capabilities that are available on gocivilairpatrol.com will be available on the unit CMS as well.  A few of the most often used capabilities are listed below:

  • Events Calendar

  • Feedback Module

  • Press Release

  • Photo Album

  • Site Map

  • Resources and Links

Eligibility?

  • Request form will be available to Commanders, Director of Public Affairs, Public Affairs Officer, Director of IT, Information Technologies Officer.

Is the new hosted solution mandatory?

  • Yes, the CAP Leadership Team has mandated that all new websites will be stood up and established sites migrated to the new system.  Due to the level of effort involved in migrating established sites, there is no expectation that established sites will immediately be moved to the new CMS on 1 February.    Website owners will be asked to begin planning their migration as soon as possible in 2019.
