Tips

For faster service:

  • Be detailed, clear and precise. There is more than one Web Content Editor in Marketing and over 1,000 pages on our website. Don't assume that we know what you know about your content.
  • Include the URL of the page you want edited even if the form does not ask for it.
  • Flyers must be accessible. JPEG, JPG, PNG, and GIFs are images, and are not accessible. To publish a flyer, it must be PDF and tagged properly. See the Accessibility Center Resources for how to make it accessible.
  • Header Images are the pictures at the top of a web page. They are 860x286 pixels, can be PNG, GIF, JPG or JPEG and must be less than 64 MB.
  • Sliders are the pictures on the home page that circulate.
    • They are 1170x500 pixels, can be PNG, GIF, JPG or JPEG and must be less than 2 MB.
    • Look at the current sliders in a wide screen and on mobile. Note how the black box reacts to the screen size and that it covers the left third of the image when on a computer screen and the bottom quarter when on a mobile device.
    • It is not recommended to have a lot of words in the image as they must be repeated in the black box usually and alt-text is restricted to about 120 characters.
    • Sliders are limited to 8 at any given time. Slider priority is determined by content that is most important to students, such as registration, parking, academic services, student services, etc., then by dates of when the event occurs.
