 Web development templates available for campus community

The Campus Web Committee would like to encourage the campus community to make use of the web templates that have been created for campus use. These templates are designed to assist web page development for any departmental or official university site.

Units developing official university web pages are encouraged to use the prepared templates so that there is a consistent look and format to the campus web pages.

The prepared templates also contain a "virtual include" of the University's logo. A virtual include is an html file that is imbedded into a web page. The benefit of using a virtual include is two-fold: it promotes consistency on your web pages, and makes it easier to update multiple pages. For example, if the university ever decided to
change its official logo, ITSS would change the logo in the virtual include and all pages that use this include would be automatically updated.

For more information on how to create a quality web page for the university go to the ITSS Web Development home page.

To view the various web page templates that are available to the campus (for free) visit the UMD Web Template page.

Finally, more information on how a virtual include works is available at the Using Virtual Includes page.
