Sites can either be hosted on your university server or you can reserve a private domain, for example www.NameOfLab.org. A private domain greatly simplifies updating your site and can give you more flexibility with features and content. If you opt for the annual maintenance contract, a private domain is included at no extra charge.
How will AWP gain access to my faculty web site?
With your authorization, AWP typically works directly with your system administrator.
What happens when my c.v. changes or I publish new article? How will my web pages stay current?
With an annual maintenance contract, you can make unlimited content changes to your Web pages throughout the year.
How will AWP obtain photographs of me and my researchers? How many photographs can I use on my Web pages?
You may provide AWP with as many images of you and your lab members and images from your research as you wish to include on your web pages.
How will AWP know what information to include on my web pages?
The information on your web pages will come from your c.v., your existing web-site, and any additional information you provide to AWP. Once we have completed preliminary version of your web pages you will be asked to review and correct these pages. Once you have approved your web pages they will "go live."
What are Server Side Includes (SSI)?
Server Side Includes (SSI) is a simple interpreted server-side scripting language used almost exclusively for the web. We use SSI for content that is shared among most or all of the files in a web site, such as navigation, headers, footers, search boxes, etc. This means that changes to shared content can be made to a single source which eases maintenance.
Will my site use Server Side Includes (SSI)?
How do I get started?
