    Using Fetch (FTP) to update a website


    Information, Technology & Consulting (ITC) does not assist with management of personal websites. However, we do license an FTP program called Fetch which can be used for moving files from a Macintosh computer into a personal website on a server at Dartmouth. See details below, or contact your department's IT support office if you need Fetch installed on your computer.

    Slideshow in Drupal


    If you want to add images to an article, the Slideshow option is where you do it. You will find Slideshow on the left, towards the bottom of the page.

    The slideshow is a carousel of photos that appear beneath the article's intro. You may have up to five images in a slideshow, and they will initially appear in the order in which you enter them. The image at the top of the list will appear first.

    To add an image, click Browse, and select from among the following options:

    Image Promo


    An article or basic page can have one image promo, you will find this link on the left, towards the bottom of the page.

    An image promo is a small box on the left-hand side, with a small image on top and two lines of text below. The promo is designed to link somewhere, usually to a faculty profile, with the words "Faculty Profile" in the first line and the person’s name in the second line.
