Integrated Application Pages

One of the things that makes the School of Medicine Web environment so powerful is the integration between "static" sites maintained using Dreamweaver or Contribute, and vast amounts of "dynamic" information stored in central databases and managed by the information's owners, rather than by Web Authors. With a simple twist of a URL from one of the database sites, Web Authors can link to this kind of information, and have it appear to be continuous with the static site.

How to Integrate Dynamic Content into Static Sites

  1. You must have a static site in a standard School of Medicine format
  2. You need to know the "namespace" of your site; this is typically the domain name, e.g. the "yoursite" in "yoursite.stanford.edu" or the root directory name, e.g. med.stanford.edu/yoursite/; contact Web Help if your not sure of your namespace
  3. Browse to the clinical trial, profile, seminar, digest page or search results page you want to integrate
  4. Type or paste the namespace into the appropriate part of the URL and reload
  5. Copy the URL from the Address Bar; use this link in your Web site

Biomedical Seminars Calendar - view dynamic site

Integration is available for SoM Web versions 2.0 and 3.0. Integrating is simple:

  1. Browse to any list of seminars, or seminars detail page; Note that there are views for All Future Events, All CME Events, and a 3-week digest view (the home page); in addition, once you find the view you want, you can select an individual "Department" from the pull-down to view events for just that department
