Official Website Requirements and Procedures

Official websites must adhere to the UNCW Web Style Guide (PDF), and content managers should use Adobe Contribute software to maintain their pages.

How it Works.

The Webmaster and UNCW University Relations work with each department or division to construct the framework (or template) for Web pages, with coherent navigation and a consistent "look and feel." Persons responsible for maintaining Web page content (referred to as "content managers") then use Adobe Contribute software to update and modify all text and photo content. This approach enables faculty and staff to manage their websites quickly and easily.

This content management system helps to insure our Web pages are:

  • compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • handheld-device (mobile) friendly
  • printer-friendly
  • operational on different browsers
  • operational on different computer platforms, such as Mac or PC
  • consistent with the university's look-and-feel and marketing style

Getting Started

  1. To create a new site or redesign an existing site, start by filling out a project request form. We will contact you and set up a meeting to go over your project.

  2. Contact the Technology Assistance Center (TAC) to have Adobe Contribute software installed on your computer.

    Note: After 30 days you will need a license to continue using the software. Please see the Ordering Adobe Products page for more information. You can also access Adobe Contribute via TealWare.

  3. Before you can use Contribute to maintain a department website, you will need permissions to the appropriate directory on the main UNCW Web server.

    • Your supervisor (director or chair) should send the following note to the TAC at

      Please give [username] read/write/delete privileges to the [directory name] on the UNCWWEB server. [Employee's name] has reviewed the Responsible Use of Electronic Resources".
    • Only faculty and staff can obtain permissions to the main Web server; however, graduate students may receive special permissions [form available on-campus only] at the request of a department chair or director. Once you have completed the form, send it to the Webmaster, Andrea Arbogast at Campus Box 5919, or fax it to her attention at 962-7381.

  4. All content managers and content editors must complete Web Content Manager and Editor training, offered online by the Webmaster and University Relations. This training is necessary before you can begin editing your website.

  5. Once permissions are established, a senior web developer will send you a "Contribute connection key" that will allow you to connect to the website and start editing content at once.
