Website Support Clinic update – Subsite Footer

At a recent Website Support Clinic, I was asked about EdWeb’s subsite footer option—its purpose, when to use it and good practice tips.

When to use the footer

The footer gives EdWeb users a chance to add logos to show affiliation with funding bodies, other universities, partners, accreditations and awards. The footer shows on all pages of your website, so you will want it to show content universal to your site and not page or section specific.

You can add text below the logos to link to further information about the logos you’ve added, such as a link to an Awards page on your website.

Human Resources footer

The Human Resources footer text links to a page on the Athena SWAN award.

On a mobile device, footer content will show in panel order, so be sure to order images and text in your footer by priority.

While the minimum size for a footer image is 40×40 pixels, it’s recommend you use photos no larger than 75 pixels in height—this way the images render correctly on browsers like Internet Explorer, which pixelate larger images.

Finance footer

The Finance footer uses only images.

When not to use the footer

If there are no affiliations to showcase on your site, you won’t need to use the footer on your site, which is perfectly okay.

The footer should not be used to show decorative images or duplicate content already on the site. For instance, if your site already contains a Contact Us button, so do not include links to contact details in the footer.
