How to change the homepage (http://events.morningside.edu/VirtualEms/)
Andy Heiser Sept. 7, 2012
In client: Configuration > Web Text > default.aspx > Edit
To refresh the page: Goto: http://events.morningside.edu/VirtualEms/systemcheck.aspx and clear the cache.
The logo at the top of the page is "customlogo.gif" (or .jpg) (width of no more than 450 pixels) on the web server, C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\VirtualEMS(ProductName)\Images.
There is a "custom.css" file that other schools use (Penn State, Harvard Law, U Neb@Lincoln) but as of today I do not know how to set this up.
To make a custom link, you need to be an authenticated user (setup in client under Web Users), and log into the VMS from a browser. Use Admin > Generate Custom Link. Copy only the url to paste into the HTML of the default.aspx.
Images can be loaded to the images folder on the server, and referenced with: <img src="images/coolphoto.png">
As an authenticated user, you can edit the page and clear the cache under 'admin functions'.
YET TO DO:
1. Set up the custom.css so that we can get hover effects etc. 2. Better format for the two links off site
