Select parameters if it isn't already selected.
Title and meta Tags
Displays in the tab of the browser after the prefix "Illinois Wesleyan:" It should
be a brief title consisting of only a few words that describe the content and purpose
of the page. Titles are critical for search engines to find your page.
Custom Settings: Header Information
Header Background Image
The image that displays below the top navigational links and above the body content
of the page. You may use images in the resources folder, which have been sized and
cropped for display on various devices. You cannot use your own images. If you try
to upload your own image to your own folder, a placeholder background image will appear
instead of the image you tried to use.
The department the page belongs to is located above the local navigation in the header.
If left blank, Illinois Wesleyan University will display as a placeholder. In general, we do not recommend adding the prefix
or suffix Department to your department name. Departments such as Chemistry should only use Chemistry as their department name. Schools such as the Ames School of Art and the School of
Nursing may use their entire name.
The body title displays on the web page right below the local navigation and above
the rest of the content on the page, and serves as a page header. It will not show
up in the OU editor.
Limit: Keep titles to about 6 words maximum.
Custom Settings: Right Hand Column Information
Only add the person's netID. The rest of the information is pulled from the directory
and displays at the bottom of the page.
Social Media Icons
Paste the URL to your social media sites and icons will display above the news feed
header. You can display up to 6 social media icons.
This header is not automatically filled with a placeholder. If left blank, the news
feed in the right hand column will not have a header. If you do not change the categories,
simply title it Illinois Wesleyan News.
Choosing "All" is recommended, which will include "Clips" (Titans in the News) plus
Events and News press releases.
Max. News Stories
The default setting of three is recommended.
It's best to choose just one category. If you have a question or a news item you'd
like to show up in your department's feed, contact Ann Aubry.
Note: If you wish to change these settings on your entire site, email Ann Aubry or Robert (Trey) Frank to do it all at once with a find & replace.
Requests for navigation changes can be made online or sent to either Ann Aubry or Robert (Trey) Frank. Include the following information:
- Titles of the links in the order you would like them to display. Include drop down
- The address of the page every link goes to (the pages must be created and published
before new links can be set up)
