Welcome to the Advisor Portal! We are so glad that you could join us!

Whether you are exploring your interest in advising an organization, working through your first year as an advisor, or you are an experienced advisor, the Student Organization Center (SOC) hopes that you will find this Advisor Portal to be of great benefit!

SOC requires all registered student organizations to have one fulltime faculty or staff member as an advisor. The Student Organization Center believes that by sharing both your knowledge about UT Dallas and personal experience, the advisor can be an integral part of the organizations success.


Customizing This Website for Your Organization

First off, you most likely want to change the name in the header portion of the site where it says "Organization Name". This is actually an image, so if you have a logo or banner you would like to fit there please go to the images tab of the website builder and find the image titled 'logo'. You can simply replace this image using the tools to the right of the name. This image is currently 712 x 52. You can add an image in a different size but it is liable to mess with the displaying of the page.

You can also change the background colors of the header. Access the files/css tab in the website builder and the only file (upon default setup of the site) is a stylesheet. Click edit to the right of stylesheet and a dropdown will show up with the CSS file. The first declaration is for body. The second is #header and the third is #navigation . Each of these controls the header and the navigation portions, respectively. The colors are defined on the lines beginning background, and can be changed simply by changing the six values between the "#" and ";" . There is a color chart on this page with many hex code examples : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors

Editing Individual Pages

Pages are maintained in the pages tab of the website builder. There are defaults established for you on creation of your website. This page, the index, has the title of home. The rest should be self explanatory. To edit a current page simply click the edit button and you will access an editor with content editing tools, along with the ability to add OrgSync modules and access the source code directly. There is more information about this in the help links at the bottom of this page and in the sidebar. 

You can also create new pages, and the name you give them will be the quick url used for linking purposes. After creation of a page it needs to be added to the navigation so access the header section under the template elements tab and add a link to the navigation using that quick url you just generated. 

To edit the images on this page scroll down to Images in your website manager. Name and upload your image. Copy the image Quick URL. Scroll up to Content Pages and click edit next to the content page entitled home. Find and replace http://s3.amazonaws.com/os_extranet_images/35667_original.gif by pasting your image Quick URL. Re-position image placement as necessary.
