Transition plan

All remaining content on gov.yk.ca must be assessed and either re-written or archived and deleted. Departments must assess their website content and determine if their webpages should be archived and deleted, or kept, combined and rewritten for Yukon.ca.

Process for archiving and deleting webpages from gov.yk.ca

Follow these steps to ensure your previous website content is preserved and remains usable should it be later needed.

Archive and delete pages that will not migrate to Yukon.ca

  1. Capture the pages and save the html files to your G drive.
  2. Email service.desk@gov.yk.ca to set up a page redirect in English and French to Yukon.ca. 
  3. Service Desk will set up a Yukon.ca page redirect in English and French and notify you when the redirect is in place.
  4. Delete the page from your RedDot project in English and French.
  5. Email service.desk@gov.yk.ca the English and French URLs of the pages you have deleted and request they delete them from the server.

Small websites you will migrate to Yukon.ca all at once

Your website can’t be updated once you capture it. This means you will have to call for a content freeze on your website while you rewrite your pages and migrate them to Yukon.ca, or you can complete these steps immediately after you migrate your content.

  1. Contact eservices@gov.yk.ca to access the tool to capture your website.
  2. Run the scan on your website and save the scanned files to your G drive.
  3. Email service.desk@gov.yk.ca so that they can re-direct the domain name of your small website to Yukon.ca.
  4. Service Desk will set up the redirect in English and French and notify you when the redirect is in place.
  5. Delete your webpages in RedDot project in English and French.

Bundles of content from more complex websites

Use this option to start tackling more complex or large websites. This will allow you to work on a bundle of priority content and then archive and delete that content from your gov.yk.ca website.

  1. Capture each page. Repeat this process for each page you will delete.
    In Chrome. Open the page you will archive. Select the tools menu (3 dots), ‘More tools’ and ‘Save page as…’
    In Explorer. Select the tools menu (cog), ‘File’ and ‘Save as…’
    You can also open the page, right-click and save it as an html.
  2. Save the page as an html file on your G drive. Group all of the pages for a project in one folder.
  3. Once your webpage has been published to Yukon.ca, email service.desk@gov.yk.ca to request Yukon.ca page re-directs be put in place for English and French. Include the URL of the page or pages you have archived and the URL of the Yukon.ca page where it will point.
