Request & Setup

There are two important steps to get started with your custom theme:

Complete the necessary forms

You must request a YaleSite and complete YaleSites Custom Agreement in order to build a custom site.

Once your request has been received, the Web Team will contact you to discuss the YaleSites development environment and process.

Vendor set-up

If you do not have a staff member with the technical expertise necessary to build a custom site, you can hire an external vendor*. If you choose a vendor that is not on the Drupal Partner list, you must set up the vendor with Yale University Procurement and obtain a Yale NetID for anyone needing access to the site.

* We offer a list of Drupal Partners who are familiar with the YaleSites infrastructure and can assist you with creating your site.
