Select an HTML Template

Below you will find a selection of HTML templates to be used in the UVM publishing system. These templates include all the files you need (with placeholder images) to create a new homepage, e-newsletter or faculty bio that will look great in the UVM look. To find additional images that are sized to fit our templates, view the image library.

How to download

Below you will find thumbnails of and links to .zip files of each of our template folders. Click on the image to see the template in a browser window. Then click on the link and you will be prompted to save or decompress the folder and then save it to your local computer.

Once you have decompressed the folder on your local computer, you can upload the contents of the folder to a test/development area in your public_html. The best method for uploading is to use a simple application such as WinSCP for Windows or Fetch for Mac OSX (learn about file transfer software).

In that test area you create, you can begin altering the text and specializing the template for your department.

For all templates but number 4, you can edit the default.html without ever looking at the actual html code. Simply follow the instructions that are built into the placeholder text areas.

Important note: The following templates have been updated to use responsive (mobile-friendly) web design.
