Web Style Guide

A guide to using the Wake Forest University template and Content Management System (CMS)

Content

Organizing

  • Build an outline or flowchart of how your information will be displayed.
  • Put information with less priority on lower level pages.
  • Group your information into categories that are easily understandable to your audience.

Contact information

Include the address, phone number and email address for your area on your homepage. Also, include the name of the person coordinating your area (e.g., department head, dean, supervisor).

Purpose

Include a brief paragraph describing the purpose of your department on a page within your site.

Breaking up blocks of text

Use headings and bulleted lists to break your web pages into sections.

Spelling and grammar

Spell check and proofread your pages, and have others review your work.
