Graduating?

ONYENs remain valid for 180 days (6 months) after graduating, after which you will no longer have access to software obtained through UNC such as Adobe CC.

ITS recommends that you backup all your files locally to keep from losing your projects permanently. If you wish to continue using Adobe CC after graduation, Adobe also offers several different packages for individuals here.

If you wish to transfer your Adobe Portfolio to a different account, please contact Adobe here.

If you have an Adobe Express project you wish to transfer to a different account, you must first share it with the Adobe account you wish to transfer it too. Then you must duplicate the project to save it under that account.

 WordPress (tarheels.live)

 

You can export the contents of your tarheels.live site (posts, pages, and images) to an XML file that can then be uploaded to any WordPress server.  This will NOT include your theme, any styling, or plugins you added to your pages.  You will need to set a new theme at your new WordPress server.  Many plugins, such as Gravity Forms and TablePress, do offer the option of exporting your forms and tables.  You will need to check if the new site utilizes these plugins.  

If you wish to keep a record of the site, you can save the pages to pdf from the browser.
