How do I create a webpage?

The ability to create web pages is provided to all students, faculty, staff, and departments.

If a student, faculty, or staff would like to create a personal web page, he/she needs to contact the Help Desk. Once the request is received, a directory is created on the Meyerhoff system that hosts the college’s web pages. Web pages, images, documents, and files can be stored in this directory to create a personal web page.

Departments who are interested in creating and maintaining a web page should contact the Webmaster (at webmaster@goucher.edu or 410.337.6527).

Anyone requesting web space must follow the appropriate use guidelines that can be found in the Computer Use Policy. Click here to review this policy.

  • Open FrontPage and click on the File menu.
  • Click on Open Site (or Open Web if using version 2000/2002).
  • Type in the Site Name field http://faculty.goucher.edu/ or http://staff.goucher.edu/ or http://students.goucher.edu/ and click Open.
  • A dialog box will appear asking for your username and password. Type gcadmin\ in the username field and then your password. (NOTE: this is the same login information that you would use to access your email on Outlook Web Access).

The index.htm will already be created for you with a message that states your site is under construction. You can make changes to the main page but it must be named index.htm or any variation of that (ie, index.html).

Using Other Editors:

You can access your folder by using any computer on campus and clicking on the Start Menu --> Run and then type in the Open field: \\Meyerhoff\Faculty_web\, \\Meyerhoff\Staff_web\ or \\Meyerhoff\Students_web\.
