4. Main Menus

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 pages.

Quick Links code: required in the header of all pages to make quick links function
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
function MM_jumpMenu(targ,selObj,restore){ eval(targ+".location='"+selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value+"'"); if (restore) selObj.selectedIndex=0; }

5. Side Bar Menu

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

6. Search feature

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

Google Code
<script type="text/javascript" src="
<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 type="text" name="q" id="q" style="border:0;" value="Enter Search Term(s)" class="sp2_field" />
<input type="image" name="sa" src="/images/11/btn-go.gif" id="btn-go" value="Go" class="sp2_btn" alt="Go" />

7. Analytics Feature

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

Google Code
<!-- Google Analytics Code-->
<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-158673-1");
} catch(err) {}</script>
<!--End Google Analytics Code-->

8. Site Footer

The Darton College Footer is required on all 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 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).

Forms should conform to the following layout:
<form action="example_form.php " method="post">
<fieldset><legend>Please fill out the information below:</legend>
<label for="Name">Your Name (required)</label>
<input type="text" name="Name" id="Name" tabindex="1" size="50" />
<label for="Email">E-mail address</label>
<input type="text" name="Email" id="Email" size="50" tabindex="2" />
<p>(We <em>cannot</em> reply if you do not enter a valid email address.)</p>
<p align="center" style="padding-top:1em;">
<label for="security_code">Authentication Code will go here</label>
<p align="center">
<input type="submit" value="Submit Comment" name="Submit" tabindex="4" />

10. Frames Break

While not required, it is highly recommended that the following script be added to the header of all 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:

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