Upgrade your Web
If you sometimes encounter problems viewing Web pages, it could
be because your browser is out of date. Many Web sites use features
that exceed the capabilities of the Netscape 4.x browsers. CIS
advises users of the older Netscape browser versions to upgrade
to version 7.x as soon as possible. Call the Helpdesk at ext.
2439 for help in performing the upgrade or download it yourself
from the Netscape Web site at http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp.
WHOI Home Page Builder
The Home Page Builder is a self-service Web application that allows
each member of the WHOI community to create and modify a basic
site containing contact information, research interests, photographs,
a resume, and lists of ongoing projects.
CIS administers the main WHOI WWW servers:
- includes the
WHOI Public page, Research
page, and Internal
- available for hosting lab/project pages like
Dive and Discover
- available for hosting WHOI-only internal websites like the
WHOI Phone Book.
Questions about the WHOI servers may be addressed to the WHOI
Any WHOI staff member can request
space on the WHOI WWW server for lab/department pages or for personal/research
pages. Currently there is no size limit imposed on websites, although
a guideline of 5 megabytes is suggested. If you anticipate needing
large amounts of webspace, for serving large datasets for example,
please contact the WHOI webmaster.
Online tutorials on using Netscape
Composer and an Introduction
to HTML are available, as well as classes
offered in the CIS Group Training Facility.
