Faculty and Staff Personal Web Sites
Your faculty or staff account gives you the ability to create a personal web site via your personal EdShare account. In addition, any special shares created on EdShare may be used to create a shared web site for a class or committee. This does not include official department pages that are part of the St. Edward's official web site. Faculty may request assistance with development of their pages through Instructional Technology.
Instructions for Publishing a Web Site at St. Edward's
All faculty and staff publishing web pages at St. Edward's University need to complete the following steps to publish a web page:
Create your web pages
Instructions for creating web pages and information on Computer Training Courses dealing with web development may be found on the Web Development site. Faculty may request assistance with developing course materials for the web by contacting Instructional Technology.
When you create your web pages, make sure you name the first or home page index.htm or index.html.
Upload your web pages to the server edshare.stedwards.edu
Save the files in your personal EdShare folder/directory inside the folder public_html. If you are on campus and using a Windows computer, log in to your computer and you will automatically be logged into EdShare. In your personal EdShare directory will be a folder public_html. You can copy and paste to move files from your computer to the public_html folder or develop your web pages directly on EdShare or use an Secure FTP application.
If you are off campus you will need to use a Secure FTP client to upload your files to EdShare.
- Save all of your web documents in the public_html folder. This includes your home page (index.htm or index.html) as well as all images and web pages.
View your web page
Once you have successfully published your web page your web address will be "http://myweb.stedwards.edu/loginname" or "http://faculty.stedwards.edu/loginname".
How do students make their own sites on EdShare?
If students are required to create web sites as part of their course work refer them to the Student Web Publishing Site for instructions. All students publish web sites using the same process as faculty and staff.
When I go to my web address, the page says it is "Forbidden". What does that mean? How do I fix it?
Your web page might have a permission error, meaning an error occured with the file and will not display the page as intended. You may fix the error by following the instructions on our Correcting Permissions in EdShare handout (PDF) or contacting the Faculty Resource Center (512-464-8804) for assistance.
