Instructions for Creating C.S. Web Pages
In the instructions below, LOGIN is your login id on the CS systems.
The folder for your cs web pages is called ~/public/html on a Unix system
or U:\public\html on a Windows system.
To link a web page to your name in any of the
c.s. people directories, create a web page named "index.html" in
your public/html folder. The page
will be linked the next day.

on creating & editing web pages.
To create your own web pages with the C.S. Dept banner,
optionally with your own table of contents in the sidebar,
do the following using your CS account:
- Create a folder named "includes" in your public/html folder
- Copy /s/www/html/templates/individual.html to index.new.html
in your public/html directory.
If you'd like to use your own table of contents in the sidebar,
copy customized.html instead of individual.html.
Make index.new.html executable by everyone
i.e., on a Unix system, type: chmod a+x index.new.html
Edit index.new.html as follows:
- edit the page title
- replace "MYLOGIN" everywhere by your cs login id
- Copy /s/www/html/templates/includes/individual.end.html
(where "LOGIN" is your cs login id)
Edit the LOGIN.end.html file to replace "MYLOGIN" with your login id
- Copy /s/www/html/templates/includes/individual.top.html
Edit LOGIN.top.html to (a) put in your name (and title), (b) use a
path to your own picture image file or delete the image, (c) fill in
your research interests or delete the research interests.
Replacing MYLOGIN in the image path will work if you have a picture
in the CS People faculty or staff directory.
- If you copied customized.html instead of individual.html in step (2),
where X is "faculty" or "gradstudent" or "ugradstudent" or "staff".
- Look at url pages.cs.wisc.edu/~LOGIN/index.new.html in your web browser.
If the page layout looks fine, copy index.new.html to template.html
so that you can use template.html to create further pages with
your own banner.
- Add content to index.new.html to complete your home page.
Edit LOGIN.top.html to make changes to the top of your web pages.
If you copied X.sidebar.html,
edit the sidebar.html file to create your own table of contents,
and create the pages in the t.c. using the template.html file
that you created in step 6.
Note that the Biography entry links to index.html, but you can
change that link.
When your home page is ready, you can move or rename index.new.html
to index.html. The url pages.cs.wisc.edu/~LOGIN will then display the
