Web Page Elements

Login Button: FREE

Insert an already-created log-in button on your site. See our list of branded log-in buttons.

Login Button Creation: FREE

Web Services has created a standard system of login buttons to let website users know they are going to sites that require campus authentication. This feature is subject to IRES review.

Embedded Video: $25*

Custom Button: $25

Display your Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook feed on your site through a Cascade widget. Recommended for regularly updated social accounts only.

Accordion Menu: $50

Improve user experience by using on-page drop-downs to reveal additional content on very long or complex web pages that would require extensive scrolling. NOTE: Information nested within accordion menu dropdowns can not be found using a web browser's Find on Page feature.

Interest/Feedback Form: $50

We can create informational forms (such as email newsletter sign-ups) only. If you need to collect payment information or other Level 1 or 2 data, register event attendees, or do other more complex functions, ask us—we'll make sure you get the help you need from other areas on campus.

Widget Implementation: $50*

Are you unsure how to use Cascade 3.0's advanced options? Web Services can help you implement cards, stories, people pages, events, announcements, buttons, or other content across your site or on selected pages.

Photo Gallery: $50

Display a collection of photos with a thumbnailed list of up to 20 photos. Once a photo thumbnail is clicked, an interactive full screen display focuses users on individual photos and allows them to easily swipe or click to the next photo in the gallery.
