Unlike a traditional custom website, where a request must be sent to IT for changes, you have a broad range of control to customize your site colors, content, and layout. We achieve much of this flexibility through the use of "Drupal Paragraphs," which are like building blocks you arrange to build pages that fit your users' needs. Current Paragraphs (building blocks) include:
The platform is based on the simple idea that if all websites use the same code base, any enhancements made to that base can be automatically pushed to every website on the platform. When we update the code, every site is updated as well so all sites stay in sync and receive any enhancements and bug fixes.
This approach reduces overall state spending on websites, removes the burden from agencies to patch their sites on a one-off basis, and improves the enterprise security posture. It also means that certain features cannot be customized on individuals sites. For example, the styling (CSS), modules, and page templates cannot be adjusted on a one-off basis.
If the base platform does not meet agency needs, certain custom elements can be created. For example, some sites have custom online forms and others automatically import data from external sources.
In all cases, there is a risk of increased ongoing cost as the customizations must be accounted for during each patch.
Customizations will be evaluated, built, and billed individually. To start the process, submit a Software Development Service Request.
