Academic departments have the option to automatically pull in research project information to their CMS website. The information comes from a database of projects that are approved for public knowledge by the Research Office. The standard information that is pulled in is:
- Principal Investigator
The PI and Co-PI fields will automatically link names to their faculty page if one is set up in the CMS.
Departments can be given the ability to override this information (as viewed on your departmental website only) or manually add projects that are not listed. If you have never used this function before, you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get set up. Departments currently set up are Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science.
It is important to use properly structured HTML headings when organizing your web content. Think of webpage headings as a table of contents for a story.
Headings are not required on webpages. However, they help break up and organize lengthy informational webpages—improving readability. Proper heading use is not only important for accessibility, it also has search engine optimization benefits, which can help your webpages rank higher in Google’s search results.
According to the University’s editorial guide, headings are always title case, meaning you should capitalize all words that are not articles, prepositions, or to-be verbs.
Data tables present tabular information in a grid. They are made up of columns and rows that communicate the meaning of the information and relationships between data. There are several options for styling your data in tables to allow for a clean, visually appealing look.
The use of HTML tables is reserved for displaying data in an organized manner. It is not proper to use table code to control webpage layout or design. To display content on your webpage in multiple columns, please refer to the Boxed Sections Snippets or the List Spread Buttons Snippet.
