    Andrew, can you please explain “Standardization of filenames on older WMS sites”? It sounds like something that could have an impact on site editors, am I mistaken?

      Hi Victor,

      Thanks for your interest.

      Two of the initial 10 WMS sites that were created have filenames with non-standard characters in them. We’ll be scripting a solution to adjust these filenames and fix any broken links that result. Neither site falls under the purview of the Faculty of Science.
