Webpage Setup Overview

Students, faculty, and staff can create and develop their own personal home pages on the Texas State computing system.

Disclaimer Requirement

Your personal home page file (typically named index.html) must contain a required hypertext Official Texas State Disclaimer link as follows:

http://www.txstate.edu/disclaimer

When you modify or replace your home page, this reference link must be in the new version or file.

 

Home Page URL

Your personal page can be accessed by other users with the URL:

http://uweb.txstate.edu/~NetID

For example: If your Texas State NetID is wb12345:

http://uweb.txstate.edu/~wb12345

 

Naming Your Files

When developing personal webpages, it is best that the file names not contain spaces or other non-alphanumeric characters such as slashes or backslashes, have no more than one period and have some type of extension such as .htm, .gig, or jpg. Also file names are case sensitive, so it is best to use all lower case letters in the file names of your webpages.

Examples:

Problematic Valid
bill bryson.htm billbryson.htm
rick&jane rick-jane.htm
joe.johnson.htm joe-johnson.htm
beautiful sunset. beautiful-sunset.png

Updating Your Webpages
