Proofreading. All pages should be free of factual, grammatical, inconsistency and spelling errors. In addition to using a spell-checker, proofread text and alt image text carefully. Double-check phone numbers, statistics, dates, titles, etc. Have a “second set of eyes” review it. After you make any changes from that review, have a "third set of eyes" review it.
Test each link and alt text manually or use a link & image code checker — such as Dr. Watson — to test the entire page. Tulane's content management system also will validate links, though it does not check for alt images.
View each page with multiple browser types and versions, e.g., Mozilla/Firefox 1.0 and higher (for Mac and PC platforms) and Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher (for PCs only) and at various monitor resolutions (a desktop and a laptop).
Reviewing Existing Pages
Tulane's content management system allows you to set expiration dates and/or freshness reminders for each page. Pages should be reviewed no less than once a year for accurate content. Regularly updating content will move your site up in search engine results. Examples:
On Tulane's content management system, make "inactive" any old pages on your website so the tulane.edu and other search engines can't index them. If your website is on another server outside of Tulane's CMS, then move the old page, which you want to save, to a separate archive folder. On any server, if your old pages are not worth archiving, then delete them entirely.
