About the CMS
Harvard Law School uses the Rhythmyx content management system (CMS) to publish content on the main HLS website, www.law.harvard.edu. The Rhythmyx CMS is managed by the Office of Communications, with support from Information Technology Services, and can be used by web authors from HLS departments, programs, clinics, and other initiatives.
Accessing the CMS
Registered users can access Rhythmyx at http://webedit.law.harvard.edu (on Internet Explorer and Safari only). Depending on roles and responsibilities, each user has editing privileges within a certain CMS “community” or communities. New users should complete this form to set up a CMS account.
CMS Training and Support
The Office of Communications schedules introductory classes for new CMS users. We also offer one-on-one training on advanced editing techniques and guidance on site structure, content strategy, and information architecture; please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a consultation.
If you have a quick question or need technical support, please e-mail email@example.com.
CMS Support Documents

Incremental Publishes publish changes that have been made to existing pages. These incremental publishes occur daily at the following times:

- 12:30 p.m.
- 3:30 p.m.

Full Publishes include new navigation (“navons”), changes to navons and new pages. A full publish is done daily at 12:00 a.m. and takes approximately three hours to complete.
