Internal and/or External Websites
All new websites are created in concert with web communications. You can submit your request at http://www.loyola.edu/marcomm/request. Your requirements for the website will determine on which platform it will be hosted.
- External website - if it is determined that your site is mainly for an external audience, web communications will work with you to create the appropriate content and it will be hosted on Sitecore, the University's content management system
- Internal website - if the main audience is internal constituents, your site will most likely be housed inside of the University's portal system, powered by ActiveCampus and developed on top of Sharepoint
- Internal and external website - if your site has content applicable for both internal and external constituencies, web communications will work with you on the appropriate content and then will determine on which platform the content will be hosted. The content will be updated in one location, but will be accessed by both the internal and external platforms.
You can request new forms through web communications at http://www.loyola.edu/marcomm/webupdate.
All ecommerce forms must be requested through student administrative services. Request an ecommerce form.
Update a Current Loyola Website
To get access to update your site, you will need to first attend Sitecore training. You can sign up for training at www.loyola.edu/training.
To request an update to another department's site (e.g. if you notice an error or typo), please submit a web update form at www.loyola.edu/marcomm/webupdate.
If you are creating your own personal website and would like to use Loyola's personal page space, you will create all of your HTML pages and save them inside of your WWW folder on your G Drive. HTML tutorials are available from HTML Goodies.
Faculty/Admin/Staff Personal Pages
Current faculty/admin/staff can create their own webpages using their G: drives.
Student Personal Pages
If you are a current undergraduate or graduate student, you have 100MB of network storage space (your G: drive) that you can use for your website and/or for storing other files. To access your G: drive from a computer on campus, simply log in to the computer and double click on “My Computer.” You will see an icon for your G: drive. (Learn how to access your network storage from off-campus using Windows or Mac).
Your space will remain available during your enrollment at Loyola and for one year after the completion of your final semester. After that, any files you have stored in this space will be deleted.
To see your stuff via the web, just type in the following address in any web browser: http://studentpersonalpages.loyola.edu/username/www (replace "username" with your Loyola username)
See detailed information on creating a web page.
