Web-One is CSUN's unified approach to improve accessibility and navigation and increase consistency to CSUN’s web presence through the use of templates, guidelines, and web design standards. Using a web content management system in Web-One should make it easier to keep content current on the CSUN website.
A Collaborative Campus Effort
Over the last year, a cross-divisional Web Coordination Group, led by Information Technology and University Advancement, developed an initial set of guidelines to be followed by campus web designers and campus web content owners. View Web-One Guidelines.
Web-One liaisons have been identified for each division. The Web-One liaisons will coordinate the transition of college, division, and department sites into Web-One, starting this fall semester.

Initial Web-One templates, including a Main Web-One template, have been designed and offer flexibility for customization by colleges and divisions. Additional specialized templates have been designed to ensure CSUN administrative web pages display lists of staff and faculty, display news, and display events using a consistent layout.Where can I see the new Web-One templates?

The Web-One template design offers flexibility with navigation bars and content layout to address the individuality of colleges and divisions. This flexibility, coupled with consistent features in the headers, footers, colors and fonts, will help ensure a consistent and enhanced accessibility and navigation experience for users of the CSUN website.
The Web-One template design allows customizable navigation menus and banners. A primary navigation bar with up to seven customizable links and an optional constituency navigation bar are designed into the template.
Banners can be either a single static image or a multi-image carousel. Banners are fixed width; however, height is flexible based on the image used. Banners include an optional text block to describe the image.
The Web-One template design offers flexibility in the layout of content on web pages. For example, the main section of each web page (in-between the header, banner and footer) can be one-column, two-column, or three-column, using the same Web-One template.

Hands-on training sessions, training guides and support will be available beginning in October. Posting content to Web-One web pages will be much simpler; knowledge of Dreamweaver or Contribute is no longer necessary.
