Get Copies of the Web Page Design Files
To get copies of the faculty web page design files, download this file: WebDesigns.exe (~41K). WebDesigns.exe is a "self-extracting archive file" that contains nine faculty web page design files. Double-click the WebDesigns.exe file from Windows Explorer to automatically extract these nine files. By default the files will extract to your c:\temp folder but you'll be prompted before the extraction and you can choose to locate the files in any other location if you prefer. (Eventually, these files or your modified copies of them will need to be in your H:\public_html\Bio folder.) The unzipped files will take up about 29K of space. The names of the web page design files you'll extract are: index.htm, vita.htm, working_papers.htm, research_sum.htm, ex_bio.htm, NoInfo.htm, footer_a.gif, footer_b.gif, and Faculty_header.gif

Customize the Files with Your Own Information
To customize any web page design file with your own information, use DreamWeaver or whatever web page editor you prefer. (Fuqua now has a site license for DreamWeaver. To get a copy, contact Fuqua's Technical Support Center.) Replace the placeholders in the file with your own information. Then save the file.

Publish Your Customized Files to the Web
Publish your customized web pages by copying your edited files into your H:\public_html\Bio folder. So the graphics display properly in your published pages, be sure to copy the three graphic (.gif) files (footer_a.gif, footer_b.gif, and Faculty_header.gif) to that location as well.

Modify Your Pages
When you're ready to change or add data to one of your pages, make your changes to the appropriate file in your H:\public_html\Bio folder. Or, make your changes to the copy you keep in another location and then copy the changed file to H:\public_html\Bio.

If You Can't Find an H:\public_html\Bio Folder
Fuqua's IT group has established a public_html\Bio folder on every faculty member's computer on the faculty member's personal FuquaNet H: drive space. If when using Windows Explorer you can't locate the H:\public_html\bio folder on your office computer, please contact Fuqua's Technical Support Center (x7878) for assistance.

Click the file links below to get a preview of what the sample faculty web page designs look like online.

File Name
Description
This is an example of what the top-level faculty page layout looks like. The office of the Dean of Faculty will manage the creation and maintenance of all faculty top-level pages. This is not one of the pages you can modify yourself so it's not included as one of the files you can download.


Use the web page design files below as the basis for creating your own web page files.

 

Index.htm

 

This is the file that the "Additional Information" link on your top-level Fuqua faculty web page points to. It serves as a kind of "table of contents" for the other pages.
If you prefer to use a design other than the one offered here, just be sure to name your main page file index.htm and locate it in your H:\public_html\Bio folder so the link from the top-level page will work properly.

 

Ex_bio.htm

 

A template for an executive bio web page.

 

Vita.htm

 

A template for a vita web page.
A template for a research summary web page.

 

Working_Papers.htm

 

A template for a working papers web page.
NoInfo.htm
If you don't plan to publish any of your own web pages at this time and want readers to see a helpful message when they click the "Additional Information" link on your top-level page:
1. Put a copy of this file in your H:\public_html\bio folder.
2. Rename the file "Index.htm".

Area Designs
If you're working on an Area web site, you might use the sample design files contained in this self-extracting archive as your starting point. Please contact Paula Ecklund for more information about using these files.

Two Course Page Design Offerings
If you're working on a web page for a class, you might consider using one of the two design file sets offered here as a starting point. The first set of files (contained in the 39K archive file OneCoursePage.exe) supports a very simple and easy-to-use design, where everything appears on a single page and a table of contents at the top allows users to easily navigate through the page. Use this design if you're relatively new to web editing and you want to keep things simple. The second set of files (contained in the 41K archive file FrameCoursePage.exe) supports a more complicated, frame-based design. In this case, a left-hand frame handles navigation and the right-hand frame contains one of a number of pages. Use this design if you're comfortable with web editing and/or want to learn more about using frames.

Each of the file sets offered above is a "self-extracting archive file" that contains a number of design files within it. Download the exe of your choice and then double-click the exe file from Windows Explorer to automatically extract the contained files. By default the files will extract to your c:\temp folder but you'll be prompted before the extraction and you can choose to locate the files in any other location if you prefer. (Eventually, your modified copies of these files will need to be in your H:\public_html\ folder so they'll be visible on the web. You might want to create a class subfolder beneath H:\public_html\ and locate the files there.)

These are the files you can expect to see once you've extracted them from the archive:
OneCoursePage.exe - contains the three files CoursePage.htm, course_hdr.gif, and footer_home.gif.
FrameCoursePage.exe - contains the nine files FramedCoursePage.htm, FrameNavigation.htm, FrameBody.htm, FrameBodyIntro.htm, FrameBodyCommunication.htm, FrameBodySyllabus.htm, FrameBodyResources.htm, course_hdr.gif, and footer_home.gif.

Once you've downloaded the exe and extracted the contained files, then use DreamWeaver or another web editor to customize the files for your own use. If you have existing documents that you want to use that are in Word or a text format, you can copy and paste that text into these files. Keep in mind that if you copy and paste, a certain amount of editing and reformatting will probably be required.
