CMS pre migration checklist

Please note that to support the migration of LSE websites into the new Content Management System (CMS), web editors are required, prior to their site being migrated, to carry out the tasks on the Pre-migration checklist. This checklist is part of the new website explaining the migration of websites to the CMS and the new LSE website structure - please visit the new website to gain a full understanding of the migration, the migration schedule that will affect your website, and the new structure: CMS: migration.

Thank you
