CNAS sub-theme overview, resources, and video tutorials

New CNAS Sites

Your CNAS Site Factory Manager will spin up a new site with the CNAS Theme already in place. It is not mandatory for sites under CNAS to use the CNAS Theme. Let your Site Factory Manager know if your department, lab, center, etc. does not want to utilize the CNAS Theme. This can be notated on the Request a Website form in the special considerations section.

Existing CNAS Sites

 
Any existing CNAS sites that are using the default or hybrid theme can switch to the CNAS theme. If the site is live (already launched at an ucr.edu domain), please be extra cautious and keep the following in mind:
 
  • View modes and styles for different components will be deferred in separate releases corresponding to UCR’s monthly releases.
  • A header image and footer image will automatically be available once the CNAS Theme is applied. In order to use a custom header or footer image, they must be approved by University Communications (for those outside CNAS) or the CNAS Site Factory Managers. Your Site Factory Manager can upload these images on your behalf. A header and footer image are OPTIONAL. If no images are present, then the CNAS Theme color will display in those sections.
  • Any blocks that have been placed using Block Layout will need to be placed in the CNAS Theme. Every theme has a separate Block Layout. Once the theme is enabled (but not set as default), you can place the block BEFORE switching themes. All CNAS sites are in Layout Builder, so this only applies to other campus units. You still have to switch to CNAS view modes in Layout when applying the CNAS theme to a website built in the UCR default or hybrid theme.
  • The CNAS Theme uses the full width layout on the <front> (home) page. This is by design. Other pages can either be full width or centered (fixed to grid).

Delicious and disease-free: scientists attempting new citrus varieties
UC Riverside scientists are betting an ancient solution will solve citrus growers’ biggest problem by breeding new fruits with natural resistance to a deadly tree disease. The hybrid fruits will ideally share the best of their parents’ attributes: the tastiness of the best citrus, and the resistance to Huanglongbing, or HLB, displayed by some Australian relatives of citrus.
