Web Guidelines - Templates/Page Setup

The following guidelines should be followed for all web pages to ensure accurately and consistently LCC's navigation, brand and image. Failure to do so may result in modifications made by LCC Web Management.

Web Editor

All web pages must be created and maintained in MicroSoft Office SharePoint Designer.

  • This application can be loaded on your computer by contacting the LCC Help Desk.
  • MicroSoft.NET Framework 2.0 will also be needed for the application to run properly. This can be downloaded from the ITS website.


As part of the 2008 web redesign, the new Web page templates use newer technology called master pages.

  • right-nav.master
  • left-nav.master
  • template-standard-layout.aspx
  • template-two-column-layout.aspx

Altering Templates - Templates cannot be altered in any way, except to change the title line, breadcrumb trail, footer information and content.

  • Templates have been designed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Use of frames will break the ADA website guidelines, so they cannot be used.

Faculty Web Accounts for Instructional Pages - should not use LCC templates.
