OMNI Migration Resources #2

On 2/23/2023, the content management system for the P-A website was changed from Mura to OMNI, because Mura had reached End-of-Life. That meant Mura updates and patches were no longer available. Due to the switch to OMNI, changes have occurred on the P-A departmental website.



  • The overall appearance and menus in the P-A website are nearly identical.
  • The biggest visible change is the new P-A directory. The P-A website now uses the NatSci College Directory.
  • You may edit your directory profile page yourself. Directions are below in "Help Documents".
  • The organization of certain sections and paths to some webpages have changed, which means some webpages have a different url from the previous site.
  • The names of most webpages now end with “.aspx”. For example, "https://pa.msu.edu/directory.aspx"
  • Improved features are available to our editors.



  • Broken Links
    • Because the names of some webpages now end in .aspx, the urls for those pages have changed. You will need to update those links.
  • Missing Pages
    • We strived to migrate all active webpages from Mura to OMNI but the automatic migration process may have missed a page. If you notice any missing pages, contact PA-IT Support.
  • Incorrect/ Missing Images
    • Images should have been migrated with the webpages. However, we have found that some images are missing or broken. If you notice problems with an image, contact PA-IT Support.
  • Problems with some People Pages
    • Due to broken links (many pages now end with .aspx), you may need to update urls to some P-A pages.
    • On the previous Mura website, the urls of pa.msu.edu/people and web.pa.msu.edu/people were treated identically. On the new OMNI website, this is no longer true. All links on your webpages that use pa.msu.edu/people need to be changed to web.pa.msu.edu/people.





Are People Pages going away?

  • No. We do suggest that you verify your People Pages are working correctly

How do I change my directory information?

How do I change my profile picture?

How can I add a new student/ postdoc/ departmental affiliate to the directory?

  • The directory is updated automatically from HR information. If someone is not listed and should be, contact P-A IT support. We can add names manually.

 How do I file requests for updates and changes?

What are the salient differences between the old system and the new system?

  • As explained above, the new system looks and functions essentially the same. However, many sections of the site had to be reorganized due to editing needs. The url path for many pages has changed.



  • Web page creation, editing, and content are overseen by P-A IT Support. If you have questions regarding information on a web page, email PA.DL.helpdesk@msu.edu.
  • The web server and associated functions are managed jointly by P-A IT Support and IT Services. For example, if the website is down or you cannot access a web page, contact both P-A IT and IT Services.
