After You Have Your Template

Note: This page is specifically intended for WSU Extension and CAHNRS Web sites, particularly those hosting their Web sites on an ECES Computing & Web Resources server in Pullman.

After Requesting Your Web Site Templates:
Preparation for maintaining a Web site

  • Do you have access to your site's folder on the Web server? Do you even know what this means? If not, contact Bob Hoffmann for assistance.
  • Subscribe to Weavers (CAHNRS email list server for Web developers)
  • Please review the Web Tips site. Web Tips will help steer you around the difficulties we most commonly encounter on Web sites at WSU. This site also gives links to good Web resources.
  • Beginning Webmasters will probably want to get a book on Web design to assist you. Some likely candidates are The Non-Designer's Web Book by Robin Williams and John Tollett, and HTML: Complete Concepts and Techniques by Shelly, Cashman, Woods (ISBN 0-7895-4723-6).

After you receive your template

  • You will receive one or more HTML files and numerous graphic files. Typically, it is preferred that all graphics files should be located in a single folder. Don't duplicate your graphics folder(s).
  • Don't create more than three pages with the templates before asking ECES Web Resources to review your work. If you are straying from the WSU guidelines or otherwise varying from good Web practices, it is better to catch this early, rather than later.
  • If you are relatively unexperienced at Web design and the WSU templates, you may want to get assistance and pointers from ECES Web Resources.
  • Original WSU Web guidelines are at http://www.wsu.edu/identity/web/. Newer guidelines, staring with the CSS templates, are available at http://web.wsu.edu/. Extension will have some minor tweaks to the WSU Web guidelines.
