The production instance of Cascade will allow logins anywhere with Internet access. You'll have a secure and protected session similar to when you use online banking. Make sure you use the link https://cascade.jmu.edu to access cascade. If you wish to access the test instance off campus (it-wwwdev.jmu.edu) you'll need to have a connection to the JMU network and have a hard-wired Internet connection.
Please contact JMU Computing HelpDesk. The HelpDesk will route your issue to the appropriate party to help resolve the problem.
Cascade provides resources to remain compliant with accessibility standards. To maintain and meet these standards will heavily rely on compliance of individual web administrators and contributors. We strongly encourage users to take the time to fill in all fields in the content and metadata tabs when creating content. When filled in completely and correctly will help meet accessibility standards. For more information about meeting accessibility standards, we offer a few tips in a separate article.
Cascade will work on most modern browsers. However, there are a several quirks for each browser. See this tutorial for more information on Browser configuration and quirks
When you start setting up your site, identify what URLs you need to be redirected. The Cascade Implementation team will work with you to make sure all necessary URLs have the appropriate redirects.
