How do I put my personal web page online?

  1. Create and save your page using a program of your choosing (e.g. Dreamweaver, Frontpage, BBEdit, Emacs, Notepad, etc). Ensure that you have a file called "index.html", "index.html", or "index.php". This will be the page people are automatically taken to when they visit your site.
  2. Access your Huxley Home (H:) account.
  3. Copy the web page files you saved into the folder called "publichtml".

The content you placed in your publichtml folder will be immediately available on your website. For students, your website will be http://students.nebrwesleyan.edu/students/username; for faculty/staff, it will be http://www.nebrwesleyan.edu/people/username.

If you do not have an "index.html", "index.html", or "index.php" page in your publichtml folder itself (not in a subfolder), your site will not work. These filenames are case sensitive; in other words, "Index.html" or "INDEX.HTML" will not work; the filename must be all lowercase.

If you are a student and this is a new site, it will take a few hours for it to get listed on the student directory page (Plugin <em></em> Not Found). You must have a page called "index.html", "index.htm", or "index.php", or your site will not be listed.

WARNING: Everything that is placed in the publichtml folder will be accessible to EVERYONE. Keep this in mind and take caution when placing files into the publichtml directory.

Obviously, content on your web page must obey the guidelines and regulations set forth in the "Policy on Appropriate Use on Computer Resources" and the "Policies for Nebraska Wesleyan's Presence on the World Wide Web". Students must also adhere to the policies in the 'General Student Policies and Procedures' and 'Code of Student Conduct' documents, which can be found in the front of your student planner.
