Web Site Help

The PMACS Web Team builds and supports sites using a content management system so that publishers can easily manage their site content. Our current content management system is MODX and our older tool is Contribute. Depending on which content management system your site is using, see help information below.

Help with your MODX Site

To request publisher access to a MODX site, submit the Request for MODX Training form.

If you are experiencing issues with MODX, report a MODX issue.

Help with your Contribute Site

If you are experiencing issues with our older deprecated content management system, Adobe Contribute, please contact us at psom-somweb@pennmedicine.upenn.edu and we can discuss the options with you.
