LiveWhale CMS Help

LiveWhale is the content management system (CMS) that we use to keep the Penn Nursing site current, informative, engaging, and interesting. It’s designed to be as easy as possible for staff, faculty, and students to use.

The pages in this section are designed to provide you with the information and tools necessary to be able to easily update the site at your convenience. If you ever have questions about making a change to a page, adding dynamic content, building an event, or anything website related, you can always contact the web team at

Additional Resources


Web content editors must ensure they are following WCAG 2.0 Accessibility standards(opens in a new tab) when creating content. These guidelines seek to improve the experience for those with visual, auditory, memory, context, or physical mobility impairments.

Following these guidelines will ensure information presented on the website is accessible to all users, whether they’re using screen-readers to listen to content, or simply reading the page.
