University IT will be rolling out a round of updates December 6th through 9th to all websites hosted on Stanford Sites. Updates start around 10PM Pacific and usually wrap up around 4AM, during which time your site may be unavailable for approximately 1 minute. If you have questions or experience issues with your Stanford Site, please contact us through University IT's new Services Portal at: https://stanford.service-now.com/it_services.
Are you creating a new site on Stanford Sites, but don't want Search Engines to see it? The NoBots module is here to replace Stanford MetaTag NoBots.
NoBots recently joined the growing list of modules available to Stanford Sites during the Summer 2016 Updates. It replaces the soon-to-be-deprecated Stanford Metatag NoBots module, which was featured as a Module of the Day here on the SWS Blog in 2014.

As part of the Summer 2016 updates to Stanford Sites, we recently added several new modules that bring enhanced features and functionality to all users of the Stanford Sites service. This post is a highlight of the new modules added; detailed posts on several of them will follow.
One of the challenges we at Stanford Web Services face as both a software development group as well as a client-facing web design team is finding time to create new and innovative tools for campus amidst client projects. Most of the time we are heads down, working with clients to launch scores of websites each year. So how do we approach innovating for campus?

Today's post is a quick tutorial how to use "git grep" and "git tag" to find the earliest tag that contains a particular line of code.
git grep <regexp> $(git rev-list --all)
git tag --contains=<commit hash>
