No Web Development Skills Required
Regardless of your technical skills, we provide a web interface that allows you to
create and manage your web site. All you need to do is select the desired options,
enter your content, save your work, and your site is ready for visitors. Of course,
if you need our assistance, we are always here to assist you in any way possible. Don't
hesitate to ask for help setting up your web site.
Content Management Tools
The web tools allow you to add, modify, and delete content. You can easily
upload your documents and images. Select from pre-defined color themes or
create your own. Upload your logo to display on every page of your site. Each
content type has its own management window. This allows you to configure each page
to make it display to your taste.
Web Site Name - When people search for your web site, they can see the name
you give it in the search results.
Web Site Password - Prevent visitors from navigating your web site unless they
have the password.
Page Password - You can secure one or more pages by using a page level password. Using this option, pages
that have been secured will not appear in the menus unless the password has been entered.
Web Site Keyword - Assign a keyword to your web site for use in creating a custom
web address/URL and for use in searching for your web site.
Take Your Site Offline - When changes need to be made to your site, you may not want your site available to visitors while changes are being made.
There is an option to make your site unavailable. This allows you to go into maintenance mode without having people
see your site until all changes are complete.
Custom Style Sheet
Portions of your web site can be impacted by the use of a style sheet (css) file. You are allowed
to use the default or upload your own version. Options not controlled by the css file are handled
by selecting options in the 'appearance' configuration features.
Web Pages and Menu Options
Create Web Pages - Specify the page name, title, and type of content to be displayed
and the page is ready for editing.
Menus - There are several options to reorganize your menu. There are also options
to display an option in the vertical or horizontal menu. Menu options can also be used to launch
a web address/URL.
Make Specific pages unavailable - Similar to making the entire site unavailable, there is an option to make specific pages unavailable in your site menu.
This allows you to make changes to the page layout or content without being able to view the page until the changes are complete.
Custom Menu Options
We have many custom menus from which to select. There is an additional charge for this option.
The menus have fly out or drop down options depending on the menu selected. The menus can be
selected for the horizontal and/or vertical options. The fee includes creating the images, attaching
the options to your pages. We also make color and font changes as necessary to match your site theme.
Web Page Formatting and Display Options
Templates - Select from the basic templates and customize the look and feel from the
many colors and formatting techniques.
Background Colors - The background color for each section of the page (header, menu, body, content, footer)
can use a color or an image.
Frame Size - Some of the web page sections allow you to modify the size and width. These
include the logo, header, menu, body, and content areas.
Custom Logo - Upload any image to be selected and used as the logo for your site.
Border Color - Each content area allows borders to be used. Borders can also use any
color and size specified.
Menu Bullets - Upload and use your own bullet images for your menu options.
Custom Domain Name
By default, your web site can be displayed using www.myschoolzone.com. If you would
like your site to be available with another name, we can host that name for your site.

Photos - These images allow you to display pictures on web pages.
Products - These images are uploaded display in your product catalog or shopping cart.
When 'Photo' or 'Product' images are uploaded they are automatically resize to a maximum of 400x375. This prevents you from
needing special software to resize your images. However, if you upload pictures straight off your digital camera, the upload
time will be increased due to the size of the file. If you reduce the size of the file before uploading, the upload time will
Upload documents that can be downloaded by your web visitors. These documents could include classroom handouts,
homework, lesson plans, schedules, and more. The file formats can be in XLS, DOC, PDF, and even GIF and JPG (images).

If you choose not to show past events, they will disappear from the web page once that date has past.
You also have the ability to create an Excel spreadsheet to manage your calendars.
Use the template from the web site to make your entries. Then just log into your account and
upload the file. After a few minutes, your data will appear on line.
