Our web publishing model

Publishing through t4 is a three step process

  • When content is approved, it is added to a publish cycle.
  • Throughout the day content is passed from t4 to a staging server. This allows colleagues to view updates on campus.
  • Overnight, content is published from the staging server to the live server where it is publically accessible.
