Applications

PCC maintains various applications that tie in with the public website but use a different code base. Some use third-party systems we integrate with the website. We also maintain various WordPress child themes for sites that require some extra features.

Banweb

Banweb is a third-party system that is part of Banner and MyPCC that keeps track of student information and manages class registrations. Learn about styling Banweb in Spaces.

Stylesheet location: in Banweb (see the Banweb stylesheet in Bitbucket)

Bookstore

The MBS third-party application manages the Bookstore back-end (textbooks and merchandise) for all four campus bookstores, which are separated. The code is very old and table-based, but our styles try to make it look somewhat similar to the main PCC website. We can’t include custom fonts.

Every time the template or CSS changes, each bookstore must be updated separately. Learn how to update the template and stylesheets in Spaces.

Stylesheet location: /_source-v6/styles/applications/bookstore.scss

Class schedule

The class schedule uses an in-house application and supplemental stylesheet. The schedule lets users view classes in various categories and search for keywords or types of classes.

Stylesheet location: /_source-v6/styles/applications/schedule.scss

Enrollment Rx

PCC uses Salesforce for managing student recruitment and admissions. There are three main components:

  • Admissions form: The admissions form and corresponding account and login pages use Enrollment Rx. Learn about managing Enrollment Rx templates in Spaces.
  • Request for information form: The RFI uses Pardot. Learn about Pardot templates in Spaces.
    • Stylesheet location: /_source-v6/styles/applications/pardot.scss

Go campaign pages

Marketing uses a WordPress child theme for their campaign pages, located at pcc.edu/go. The pages have a simple theme that is quite different from the main PCC website.

Grad plan

Grad Plan is a third-party system that helps students keep track of the courses they need to graduate.

Intranet

The PCC event calendar uses a child theme of the main PCC website to accommodate its custom design, layout, and features.

Stylesheet location: in the child theme folder (see the Intranet styles in Bitbucket)

Login pages

  • Authenticate: Authenticate is the main login for MyPCC, PCC email, etc. Learn about updating the authenticate login pages in Spaces.
  • CAS login: There are a few third-party login pages, but we’re working toward single sign-on (all logins will go through authenticate). For now, the CAS login is still used for a few systems (Desire2Learn, PCC Library, PCC AIM, and Scholarships).

WebEasy

Stylesheet location: /_source-v6/styles/applications/webeasy.css

WordPress

The Web Team is in the process of moving the website into WordPress. WordPress and static pages share the same script and style libraries.
