How do I get an account? 

If you are in charge of editing a page on the www.murraystate.edu website, you may contact the Charley Allen or Daniel Fukuhara in Web Management to set up your account. All new users are required to undergo training before they are given access to edit pages. 

All users must attend a yearly group training session to retain access to the system. 

Banner images

The banner image dimensions are 1920x480. 

Banner images must be high quality, correctly-sized images. Logos and poor quality images will be removed from the banner image section. 

Banner images cannot be changed by most users. Please contact Charley (callen@murraystate.edu) or Daniel (dfukuhara@murraystate.edu) to change your banner image. 

 

How do I edit the gray bar on the side? 

The gray side bar is your navigation. You can edit the navigation in the _nav.inc file. 

I need help...

If you are having problems with a page email Charley (callen@murraystate.edu) or Daniel (dfukuhara@murraystate.edu) for support. Please include a link to your area AND check-in the page you need help with (you can check in a page by turning off the lightbulb). We can unlock pages, but that will undo any unsaved changes you might have made.
