A Note About our Transition to Omni CMS

We are currently underway with our transition to Omni CMS, which will be replacing Cascade CMS in late spring 2023. Be sure to check out our Omni CMS section for progress updates and where we currently stand in our migration timeline.


  • CMS Training & Access

    Important Note for Site Authors

    Due to our transition to Omni CMS, site authors must be trained in both Omni CMS and Cascade in order to receive CMS access. If you are an existing site author inside Cascade as of January 26 and you are unable to log in to Omni CMS, please open an Omni help request ticket.

    If you are not an existing Cascade CMS site author, you are required to take both Cascasde and Omni CMS training in order to gain access to the CMS due to our double system edits requirement during our content prep phase. This requirement for new site authors will be removed and replaced with Omni-focused training later this spring. 

    Visit our migration FAQ section for more information!

    Site author training is verified prior to being granted access to the system.


    Mandatory Site Access Training
    All site authors must take the following training to gain access to the CMS:

  • CMS Login

    Cascade CMS login

    Login into Cascade Server, the content management system for the University of Wyoming.

    Omni CMS login

    Please refer to your training success page to gain access to Omni CMS.

    Accessing the CMS from off-campus?

    You must be connected to WyoSecure VPN to access Cascade CMS from a location outside of UW's network - such as your home office or while traveling.

  • Site Author Support

    Need one-on-one assistance?

    We serve over 400 site authors and may not be able to address your questions immediately. One of the best ways to receive troubleshooting assistance is to register for a weekly Virtual Open Lab time slot where you can speak directly with a CMS expert.

    These open labs are appointment-only and are currently being hosted on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

  • Cascade CMS Tutorials

    Visit the Cascade CMS knowledge base for information and resources, including SEO, to help you with your website.

    Omni CMS Tutorials

    Site authors can visit our Omni tutorials page for assistance with Omni CMS. You must be connected to WyoSecure VPN if you are accessing this link off the UW campus network.

  • Page rank and SEO

    Google uses more than 200 parameters to decide which website pages get to the top of the search engine ranking results. Learn more about Search Engine Optimization and writing for the web.

  • Accessibility

    Go to the accessible technology resources page to learn how to make your website accessible.
