As a service to the Texas Tech University content owners, the IT Division provides
support and training on a content management system (CMS) for web authoring. Content
management allows authors to easily update the content on their web pages without
the need for in-depth web programming knowledge.

In collaboration with the Office of Communications and Marketing, the TTU Information Technology Division has implemented responsive templates for Web use. These templates integrate official Texas Tech identity attributes and elements into a framework that is appropriate for different content types. They are coded with XHTML using external Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) that incorporate the TTU color palette and fonts. This simplifies the process of creating new sites and pages or converting your current site to our new look. Each of our templates create fully standards-compliant Web pages that keep the content accessible to every visitor.
Only sites maintained using the university approved CMS will be able to use the updated templates implemented by the TTU IT Division and Communication & Marketing.
For more information on templates, contact IT TeamWeb.
There are three templates currently available:
Standard Page is the standard template for University departments and areas, and is the primary template distributed to official web resources.
Streamlined Page provides a streamlined design which does not include a left navigation section.
College Home Page is the primary entry page for each college.
For more information about the appropriate usage of the University templates, contact IT TeamWeb.
Each template has several components available for customization. These areas include:
All official University entity web sites and currently registered student organizations may be linked to on the TTU.EDU web site. This listing includes, but is not limited to:

For a departmental web site to be listed on TTU.EDU, it must comply with these publishing guidelines, including using the official web template. Otherwise, a generic page will be used as the official departmental landing page. All visitors will be redirected from there.

Sponsored links are website links displayed and highlighted at the top of the TTU
search results page, when you conduct a keyword search on the TTU website. This feature
will let TTU emphasize specific web pages, to improve the likelihood that site visitors
will quickly find the most relevant information first. Sponsored links and prioritization
of sponsored links are determined by the Office of Communications & Marketing.
