The Web Office provides a supported Dreamweaver template for departments not yet using the Web CMS. If you want to create a new website or redevelop one, see the page on getting started for information about whether you should use Dreamweaver or the Web CMS.
Using the Web CMS?
Web CMS documentation has its own section of the site.
To help you make a smooth start with the Dreamweaver template, the Web Office can provide training to get you going.
Training covers all the core tasks described on this site. Practical exercises and demonstrations help to give you the best start possible in creating pages using the University web template.
We tailor training to individual needs, so we don't have scheduled sessions. Instead, just get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll schedule something to suit you. Group training or one-to-one tutorials are both possible; talk to us and we'll work out what's best for you.
If you're an expert web author, you might be tempted to make changes to the code that underpins the Dreamweaver template - please resist this urge! If you find that you cannot achieve something within the constraints of the template, let us know (email@example.com) and we'll see if we can help.
The reason we ask that web authors don't make their own changes to the underlying template code is simply that the University wishes to have a consistent look and feel across its website. Idiosyncratic changes made by individual web authors quickly compromise this goal.
There are lots of University websites using the Dreamweaver template - check them out and be inspired!
