Applying Marquette's brand

Marquette strives to ensure consistency across all our websites. To achieve this, we created a resource guide for vendors. If you have any brand, template or design questions or concerns, please contact OMC.

File structure

Studies have shown that a flat site structure enables Web spiders to better crawl through a website. Our sites are structured that way. To keep file categories together, we use specific naming conventions. For example, if a file is considered part of an "About" section, we name it "about-name.php". Read more about file structure.

File names

Please name your files using simple text, lowercase letters and no spaces (use hyphen to separate words "-"). Make sure your file names end in ".php". This is a special extension that instructs Web browsers to dynamically insert the navigation bar and other shared page elements specified in the template. If you don't execute this step correctly (e.g., mypage.html or mypage.htm) you'll only see the white area of the template when it's published.
