Web Tutorial Guide: Web Page Checklist

Things to do before you create a new Web page

  • Think about where your page will go in your Web site. Does it fit into an existing section of your Web site? Do you need to create a new section in which your new page will be the home page?
  • If your new page represents a new Web site section, add the section to all Web site navigation bars. Create a new navigation bar for this section if you will be adding more pages to the section.
  • If your new page fits into an existing section, add the name of the page to only the navigation bar for that section.

Things to do to create a new Web page

  1. Create a new Web page from the correct template.
  2. Save your Web page in the appropriate folder.
  3. Add text in the Heading Content area of your page, following Calvin Web standard naming conventions.
  4. Copy and paste your Heading Content into the Title Box for your page.
  5. Connect your page to the correct navigation bar.
  6. Go to Modify>>Template Properties and enter the correct bodyClass word for your page.
  7. Verify that the section your page is in is bold in your navigation bar. If it is not, check that you have the correct bodyClass word typed in Template Properties.
  8. Go to Modify>>Template Properties and enter one of four layout options in the bodyID area.
  9. Enter content on your page, removing all unnecessary line break from the text.
  10. Add any appropriate links to your text.
  11. Add any images that you want on the page (re-size first in Fireworks).
  12. Spell-check your page (Shift+F7).
  13. Make sure you have followed Calvin's Editorial Style Guide in your Web copy.
  14. Gain any sign-offs or approvals you need before publishing the page.
  15. Run the Web Update Button for your Web site.
  16. Go to your new page in a Web browser to check for any broken links or other problems on the page.

Things to do after you've created a Web page

  • Check each page you create at least every three months to make sure none of the information on it is outdated.
  • Remove any outdated information (i.e. majors that no longer exist, profiles of students who have graduated, events that have come and gone).
  • Run through your pages to find any broken links (Web sites linked to often change or remove their pages).
