The first Web Editor meeting of the academic year will discuss how to prevent and fix broken links.  The first line of defense is Dependency Manager, a feature of OmniUpdate that keeps track of links between pages, even across sites.

Redirects are the second line of defense, and we will demonstrate how to add redirects using OmniUpdate.
