Creating a Module - General: Templates and Styles


Web templates are created in Dreamweaver for use in Contribute. Tech Alive templates consist of the following:

  1. Overall layout
  2. Michigan Tech/Tech Alive banner
  3. Navigation from main Tech Alive website to the module
  4. Editable regions

Items 1-3 are not editable by authors, although they may be updated by Tech Alive staff.


Each web page in the module is linked to its own Cascading Style Sheet. Features of the style sheet include:

  • Background color
  • Background image
  • Font colors
  • Font faces
  • Font sizes

The style sheet is not meant to be edited by authors, but each module can have its own style sheet specifications by author request.
