This page includes links to various design resources for SCU Web publishers, and others with an interest in the SCU Web site design.
The site design offers multiple template options for the SCU home page and top-level Directory and Portal pages, as well as several options for schools, departments, offices, and other SCU Web sites.
Element Display Options, Styles, and the Redesign Color Palette
Some new and updated display options are available in the new site design:
The new design includes the option of developing custom site navigation elements for school home pages, and departments within a school site. You can also include secondary navigation menus in the left and right columns of a page or template.
- Image Source Files
Create your own subsite banner and right column widget images using these Photoshop source files.
- Subsite Title Image Collection
The site designer has created several dozen subsite title images, for use in applying a new template option to an existing site.
- Title Image Creator
A Web-based utility is available for Commonspot users to create a subsite title image.
- Image Optimization
The site design includes width limits for the left, center, and right columns. A Web-based image editing utility is available for use in re-sizing images to fit within the fixed-width layout.
Using Commonspot's text editor, you can modify table formatting by changing border settings, applying a style class, or using a custom script to apply alternating bands of background color to table rows.
Design resources are available for developers of SCU-related Web sites that are not managed within the Commonspot CMS.
Documentation of the redesign project describes the initial testing, discover, planning, and design phases.
