Thank you for your interest in setting up your SWE section website on the SWE headquarters server. We provide sections space on the www.swe.org server free of charge. Generally, if you want to post a few pages under your region, you designate a webmaster and we will give him or her ftp access to a folder under your region to post the pages. We are not able to support custom domain names.
Content posted on this site impacts all of SWE’s section/region sites. Ensure that any computer that posts to this site is running current virus protection. Malware introduced to the site in the past has impacted many section sites.
Some prohibitions to be aware of include: CGI/perl, streaming media, custom applications in your directory without discussing them with the sysadmin, using copyrighted material without a release (for example images), and building up a large library of documents (downloadable PDFs/docs related to society business are appropriate). We ask that you limit your directory size to about 30 MB, although exceptions can be made for special projects.
Server side scripting is limited to .aspx and .asp.
For more flexibility, some sections host locally and we build redirectors into the main swe.org pages they point to their own web server.
Once you're up and running support is provided primarily by the Region webmaster or "gatekeeper".
Templates for look and feel and navigation were created to compliment the base SWE web site for each Region and its Sections. Use of the template is encouraged but not currently required. If you have difficulties with the website, please contact ITSupport@swe.org.
Please note that the development of the site is your responsibility and unfortunately SWE does not have resources to support site development.
