The two menus located at the top of the Darton page, the Division/Department menu, Bread Crumb links and the Footer menu are standard (and therefore required) on all www.darton.edu pages.

5. Side Bar Menu

A side bar menu, while editable, is required on most www.darton.edu pages.

6. Search feature

The Darton search feature utilizes Google Custom Search, and is required on all www.darton.edu pages.

Google Code

<form action="/search.php" name="search" id="searchbox_017576047726838547110:beow6ninise">
<label for="q">Site Search: </label>
<input type="hidden" name="cx" value="017576047726838547110:beow6ninise" />
<input type="hidden" name="cof" value="FORID:11" />
<input tabindex="<?php echo $count++; ?>" type="text" name="q" id="q" style="border:0; font-size:1.00em;" onfocus="if (this.value == 'Enter Search Term(s)') {this.value = '';}" onblur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = 'Enter Search Term(s)';}" value="Enter Search Term(s)" class="sp2_field" />
<label for="sa">Hit Enter on GO to Conduct Search</label>
<input tabindex="<?php echo $count++; ?>" type="image" name="sa" src="/images/11/btn-go.gif" id="btn-go" value="Go" class="sp2_btn" alt="Go" />

7. Analytics Feature

Darton State College utilizes Google Analytics for site statistics. The following code is required in the header of all www.darton.edu pages.

Google Code - PHP Pages (place right after the opening <body> tag)

<?php include_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/includes/analyticstracking.php'); ?>

8. Site Footer

The Darton State College Footer is required on all www.darton.edu pages. This footer must include the following links: Email Us, Contact, Site Map, Employment Opportunities, and University System of Georgia.

In addition to these links, the footer must also include the Darton State College Mailing Address, the local and long distance phone numbers, and copyright information.

9. Interactive Forms

All interactive forms on the Darton website must include an Authentication Code (to reduce spam). Contact the Web Services team about the Authentication Code.

10. Frames Break

While not required, it is highly recommended that the following script be added to the header of all www.darton.edu pages. This script will prevent the Darton web page from being held inside someone else's frame set.

<!-- Script to keep page from being placed into a frame -->
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!--
if (self != top) { if (document.images) top.location.replace(window.location.href); else top.location.href = window.location.href;}

11. Responsible Department & Web Contact Information

All Department and Division pages are required to display the Responsible Department and Web Contact information at the bottom of all their pages (just above the footer). For more information about the Web Representatives, please see: http://www.darton.edu/TSD/webadmin/reps.php

The Web Services department is responsible for the information on this page.
For questions regarding content, or for further information, please contact Dorea Hardy.
