Web Templates

University Communications offers Web Standard compliant template-based sites. There is some customization available, primarily including use of photography in pages and banner. Using a template is both time and cost-effective. These are available to both administrative and academic units.

The templates are offered with the option of CSS or table-based layout. They may also be provided as Dreamweaver templates.

The templates connect to a central set of style sheets, JavaScript and some universal images, so when there is a change in the University Web Standards, this change is automatically reflected in all template based sites.

Demonstrations of these templates have been posted for viewing, but the code has been encrypted. If your office is interested in using a template please contact University Communications. Each template requires some basic customization, such as the creation of a banner with approved use of the U.Va. logo and the scripting of the custom Google site search, before being handed over to a unit for production. Though ideally meant to be used on the Blue Unix cluster the templates maybe altered to still work on external servers.
