About the IU Web Framework

On this page:


The IU Web Framework lets you use familiar form options (such as drop-down menus, text input, checkboxes, and WYSIWYG editors) to create web pages, which you can then publish through SFTP to IU Sitehosting, Webserve, or any hosting server. The framework is fully brand compliant and follows Indiana University standards for accessibility.


Due to the evolving coronavirus situation, the retirement of Webserve is delayed until April 16. This is to allow classes that reference sites on Webserve to continue with minimal disruption.

All remaining Webserve sites will be disabled on April 16. Login access to webserve.iu.edu will also be disabled on April 16. If you have websites that still need to be moved to IU Sitehosting, you should migrate immediately.

The IU Web Framework was built as a collaboration between UITS, IU Studios (formerly IU Communications), and representatives from regional campuses using Cascade Server Web Content Management System (WCMS), Indiana University's enterprise content management system.
