University Marketing and Communications

Organization

Sections and folders are used to organize the content that creates a web presence. Menus are used to help users navigate and find that content. Sections are usually organized by topic or audience group and mirror the navigation menus. For example, if you have a menu item representing potential students, then you should have a section dedicated to potential students, where related folders, pages and files are kept. 

Inside each section's folder are separate folders for images (gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg and png files), documents (pdf, xls, xlsx, doc, docx, pps, ppsx, ppt and pptx files) and Webforms. You will need the assistance of the web development team to create folders for images and folders. Please contact webdevelopment@utoledo.edu

Each section will also include an index.pcf file, which is the homepage of that part of the site. The index.pcf file will inherit the name of the folder it is inside for its live URL. For example, an index.pcf file inside a folder titled potential-students will have the URL of http://www.utoledo.edu/potential-students/.

  3. In the new window that appears, type in a name for the new folder. Use only lowercase letters or numbers. Do not use underscores, despite the directions that appear. For spaces, use hyphens.
