The footer zone appears at the bottom of the page below the primary content zone and consists of the local site footer and the WSU global footer.
The local site footer contains local site-wide content and should include at least the following in this order:
- The name and address of the WSU unit responsible for the site or page. Link the unit name to the unit's home page.
- A unit phone number for visitor inquires.
- A "Contact us" link for visitors to contact the unit through email, online form, or a contact page.
Other local site content may be included, such as a page's last revision date. Strive to keep local footer length to one line of text and no more than two.
Site navigation links should not be included in the footer.
The style, text position, font, size, color, and rollover function are fixed and must not be altered.
Text must be upper and lower case. (This is often called headline-style capitalization; for details on correct capitalization, consult the Chicago Manual of Style.) Never use all capitals or all lower-case.
Links are not underlined but are a fixed blue color and change to crimson on mouse rollover.
The background image is fixed and must not be altered.
The global site footer content is centrally delivered to each page through code in the core HTML file that accesses an external file. This enables campus-wide updates to global footer content. Future updates to the global footer will NOT require individual Web developers to update individual sites or pages.
The content, style, text position, font, size, color, and rollover function are fixed and must not be altered.
DO NOT modify the global footer content or design, or overlap it with any other content.
Regional campuses display their unique global footer. Refer to these instructions for implementing regional campus global components.
