This web page outlines procedures by which Norman Public School
staff can manage the web documents for their individual staff web page
and/or their school's web site. The main (first)
page in any NPS web site should be named index.html or
index.htm. Your index file may
contain links to additional web pages.
Please keep in mind that your web page may be viewed by people with
a variety of web browsers and connection speeds.
Files and images included in your web site should be optimized
for the Internet (small in size) to minimize demands on server storage
and reduce download times.
Manage an Individual Staff Web Page
Manage a School or District Web Site
Authorized webmasters should be able to access their school's web site
via the district shared space (the S: drive) from any NPS Unified
Desktop (UDT) computer within our NPS wide area network (WAN).
If there are multiple wemasters for your site then it is both courteous
advisable to inform others when you plan to work on the web site to avoid
potential data loss when two people are simultaneously editing files. You
may want to appoint a primary webmaster for your site to help manage access
to - and help protect - the documents on your web site.
To edit school web site(s):
- Log into any UDT computer using your UDT (email) user name and password.
- Open the S: drive and look for the websites folder.
- If you are authorized to manage one or more NPS web sites you should
be able to open the websites folder and see a list of the sites (listed
by 3-digit site code) to which you have been granted access. For example,
if you were a webmaster for both NHS and NNHS then you would see a folder
named 705 containing the web site for NHS (site 705) and another
folder named 710 for NNHS. Most webmasters will only the folder
for one site.
- Double-click the folder for the web site you wish to edit.
- You should see the files and folders for that web site and may now
add, delete, or modify the files.
FTP (Access from Outside the NPS Network)
These instructions assume you are already familiar with the ftp process and
ftp commands. If not, you should use one of the network drive access
procedures described above. The ftp commands (listed below in green text)
should be entered at an ftp> command-line prompt. You will need to
press the enter key after you type each command.
- ftp to www.norman.k12.ok.us (the NPS web server).
- When prompted, log in using your NPS UDT/email user name and password.
- After you have successfully logged in you will need to change directory
(cd) to access the files in your web site:
- If you wish to work on your indivdual staff web page then you should
type  cd webpages
to move into your personal webpages directory. When you are logged
into a UDT computer located at one of our schools you will see the contents
of this directory in your W: drive.
- Access to school, campus, and department web sites
from outside of the NPS wide-area network (WAN) is no longer available
as of Fall 2004.
We hope to allow such access again at a later date.
You should be able to access your indivdual staff web page from outside
of our district using ftp.
So you might consider using your indivdual staff web site as a transfer
point to get files into - and out of - the district. When you return to
the NPS WAN you could transfer the files from your individual staff web page
(your W: drive) to your school's web site (available from your S: drive).
- If you wish to work on your school's web site then you should type
to move into a directory containing all of the web sites you have permission
to manage. Next you should type
(replacing "123" with the 3-digit site code for your school) to enter the
web site for your school. When you are logged into a UDT computer located
at one of our schools you will see the contents of this numbered directory
in the corresponding numbered folder in the websites folder on the
S: drive:   ( S:\websites\123\ )
- Then you can use the normal
ftp commands -
e.g., dir, put, get -
to list, upload, and download files. You can type
to see a list of ftp commands. You can enter the name of a command after
the ? to find out what that command does - e.g., enter
to discover what the put command does.
- Type  bye
to exit the ftp session when you are finished.
