This page provides examples of the basic HTML elements used to create pages on uah.edu. For examples of custom modules found on the UAH site, see the Navigation & Modules page.



Template Overview

The uah.edu template is based upon the Bootstrap 3 framework. There are more Bootstrap-created elements and styles available in the uah.edu template that are not listed on this page. For complete Bootstrap documentation, visit getbootstrap.com.

Responsive Design

UAH homepage on various screen sizes

The UAH website is responsive, meaning the layout of each page changes based on the size of the visitor's screen (or the browser window). Ensure your content displays correctly across all these screen sizes.

Here are some prominent examples of layout changes visible on smaller screens:

  • header condenses
  • tile modules rearrange and condense
  • sidebars wrap to below the main content
  • menus move off screen
  • images shrink

Grid System

The UAH website is based on a 12-column grid. Images and other elements are resized on the page by assigning how many columns (of 12) wide each should be for a particular screen size. For example, an image with the class .col-xs-6 is 6 columns wide of a total 12, meaning it's half the width of the page for XS-sized screens and up.

For more information on the grid system refer to the Bootstrap grid system documentation.

Multirow Grid

Add .multi to the row to create a gallery-like grid, in which each column matches the height of its adjacent columns. Columns are given a top and bottom padding in addition to the left and right padding. Note: Each column must be the same width.

Break Points

There are several predefined screen widths at which major layout changes occur. These are called “break points.”

 Extra-small devicesSmall devicesMedium devicesLarge devices
Screen/browser width <700px ≥700px ≥900px ≥990px
Example devices Phones Tablets-portrait, iPad-portrait, etc. Small browser windows, etc. Tablets-portrait, iPad-landscape, laptops, desktops, etc.
Class prefix .col-xs- .col-sm- .col-md- .col-lg-

Typography

Headings

Organize your content by using the appropriate headings: h2 through h6. Heading 1 is reserved for page titles. Since the page title is pre-set, you will never use Heading 1. Headings 2-6 should be used in descending order by hierarchy. Headings are not to be used solely for layout or just for promoting important text. Headings are used to categorize the related content below. Think of headings like you would when writing a report. The largest heading is used at the top of the page. Sub headings are used in descending order by hierarchy. Just like you would never skip headings in a report, you would never skip headings on your page.

Example

Heading 1 with small text and a link

Heading 2 with small text and a link

Heading 3 with small text and a link

Heading 4 with small text and a link

Heading 5 with small text and a link
Heading 6 with small text and a link

Heading 1 with small text and a link

Heading 2 with small text and a link

Heading 3 with small text and a link

Heading 4 with small text and a link

Heading 5 with small text and a link
Heading 6 with small text and a link

 

Body Copy

Standard body copy is 18px in size and uses the Avenir typeface. Add .lead to the first paragraph of a page to present a brief introduction or overview of that page.

Do not format text in other colors (such as red) to call attention to text. Instead use bold or italics.
Example

This is a lead paragraph. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam hendrerit mauris dictum metus porta, in consectetur dui aliquam. Nunc eu pharetra ipsum.

This is a standard paragraph. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam hendrerit mauris dictum metus porta, in consectetur dui aliquam. Nunc eu pharetra ipsum.

Horizontal Rule

Use horizontal rules to separate independent sections of a page.

Use horizontal rules sparingly. Correct use of headings is often sufficient in separating content.

Example


 

Icons

There are ~300 icons available for use on the UAH website. See icons and usage

Image of usable icons


Images

For best appearance across all screen sizes, images should be 16:9 ratio, landscape. Irregular images (portrait or tall) should be inline and 1/3 width.

Use the classes below to set the size and position for an image and to determine the dimensions needed for each size.

  Source Image SizeFloat LeftFloat Right
Full width 1440px x 810px N/A N/A
2/3 width 960px x 540px .left-66 .right-66
1/2 width 720px x 405px .left-50 .right-50
1/3 width 480px x 270px .left-33 .right-30

Advanced Sizing

For more control over sizing images, use the Bootstrap grid classes. The grid classes allow you to specify the width to display at each screen size.

Saving Images for Web

These image sizes are larger than their display area in order to appear sharp on hi-resolution screens (such as retina displays on iPads, iPhones, etc.). It’s best practice to save these images with a high JPEG compression in order to keep the file size low and the page load times short.

In Photoshop, select Save for Web and then set the JPEG quality to 35.

 

Image Captions

Image captions should be as concise as possible and a maximum of 250 characters. Captions are overlaid on the bottom of the image. On extra-small devices, the caption moves below the image to avoid covering too much of the image.

Example
test image

Here is a caption with a description of the above photo.

Caption Below Image

For narrower photos and/or longer captions, add .caption-below to force the caption to appear below the image at all screen sizes.

Example
test image

Here is a caption with a description of the below the photo. Longer captions such as this should go below the photos, so as not to cover too much of the photos.

Videos

Videos may be embedded within a page, included in a modal (pop-up), or added as a link that plays from an external site. Videos should be 16x9 widescreen, 720p or 1080p. Videos should be hosted with a video service such as YouTube, Wistia, or Vimeo. Videos must be closed-captioned for hearing impaired users.

Videos hosted on Wistia are the only videos that can be embedded or use the pop-up feature. YouTube videos can't be embedded due to the inability to control ads, recommendations, along with limitations for captioning. Should you have a video that needs to be on your site, contact webmaster@uah.edu and we will assist you with the best approach for hosting your video.

When using videos, remember these best practices and helpful tips:

  • Should you host the video on Wistia, share the video with webmaster@uah.edu and we can upload it into Wistia. When uploading into Wistia captions must be ordered and costs run a set price per minute. Depending on the length of the video, captions may be rush ordered. Keep in mind if you rush order captions this also increases the caption price.
  • Ideally, all videos are hosted on Wistia. However, if the video must be hosted elsewhere, we can only link to the video. The link will open a new browser tab where the viewer can watch the video on the external host domain. For example, if the video is hosted on YouTube, we can only add a link to view the video on YouTube.
  • If you are using hosting services other than Wistia, webmaster@uah.edu only needs the URL to the video.
  • Before uploading your video on YouTube or another hosting service, you should create the YouTube channel using an entity account (don't use your personal account). After uploading the video into the YouTube channel, be sure and set the appropriate privacy settings. YouTube privacy settings are public, private, and unlisted. When these steps are complete, send webmaster@uah.edu the video URL and we will add a link on the site.
  • Videos should never auto-play on page load. Instead, videos should play only when the user selects play.
  • The OMC has a videographer on staff. If you plan to record a video and are unsure about best practices or have questions, please reach out.

Buttons

Buttons elicit action from visitors and are thus used to highlight important links and actions on a page.

Multiple styles and sizes of buttons are available:

  • “UAH” and “Primary” are the primary buttons reserved for the most important links and actions.
  • “Default” and “Black” are secondary buttons designed to complement the primary buttons and convey less importance.
  • Multiple sizes are available to match surrounding style and to convey importance.

Contextual Buttons

These buttons should only be used in their respective context in forms and applications.

Example

Tables

Tables are used for displaying tabular data, data you would find in a spreadsheet. Tables are not to be used for layout or formatting of pages, as this does not allow for reformatting required for responsive layouts.

 

Basic Table

For basic styling — light padding and only horizontal dividers — add the base class .table to any <table>.

Important

All tables should have the class .table. By assigning this class, each table is automatically styled, made responsive, and made accessible.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

 

Condensed Table

Add .table-condensed to make tables more compact by cutting cell padding in half.

Add .table-xs-condensed to apply this style only on extra-small devices.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

 

Striped Table

Use .table-striped to add zebra-striping to any table row within the <tbody>.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

 

Hover Rows Table

Add .table-hover to enable a hover state on table rows within a <tbody>.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

 

Bordered Table

Add .table-bordered for borders on all sides of the table and cells.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

 

Sortable Table

Add .table-sort to allow users to sort your table by column.

Example
 ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

&nbsp;ABC
1 A1 B1 C1
2 A2 B2 C2
3 A3 B3 C3

Forms

Google Forms

Google Forms empowers you to build forms and collect results. YouTube has a plethora of walkthroughs that cover every aspect of building and using Google Forms. Refer to YouTube for instructions on how to build a Google Form. Below are a few best practices and helpful tips while using Google Forms across the UAH site.

When using Google Forms, remember these best practices and helpful tips:

  • Create the Google Form using an entity account. For example, college@uah.edu or department@uah.edu instead of a personal account such as first.last@uah.edu. When using an entity account, you reduce the risk of the college/department losing access to the Google Form.
  • After building the Google Form set the form to record results in a Google Spreadsheet. This allows for easy viewing, sharing, and monitoring results. Google Forms provides several reporting options and can send you notifications when a new entry is received.
  • Google Forms allows you to set auto-response on form submission. You can respond with custom welcome messages, acknowledge support requests, send confirmation emails, and more. However, If you don't want to auto-respond, this feature can be deactivated.
  • Google Forms belongs to a family of Google products. Results are more accessible within this family of products, are backed up online, and can easily be exported into other formats. Get familiar with the Google family of products to better understand their potential for your data management needs.
  • Google Forms can be set public or private. This controls who can view and use the form. By default, a form is set as private. Remember to change this setting based on your needs.

Emma Forms

Creating sign-up forms for Emma email service mailing lists is outlined on the Emma website.

When Embedding Emma forms on the UAH website, remember:

  • You must have an Emma account set up through the OMC to have a form embedded on the site.
  • It must be a regular sign-up form - not a lightbox. Lightboxes are not ADA compliant.
  • If the form is to be embedded on the UAH website, it must not contain any logos or imagery.
  • Please be sure to format all response emails in Emma before adding the form to the website.
  • OMC will place the embed code for the form on the UAH site so that any formatting for responsiveness can be addressed immediately.

If you have any questions about placing Emma forms on the UAH website, please contact webmaster@uah.edu for assistance.

Show/Hide Content

Use these utility classes for showing and hiding content based on the user's device size.

Use these on a limited basis and avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site. Mobile users get frustrated when they aren't able to see the same content as desktop users.

 Extra-small devices Phones (<700px)Small devices Tablets (≥700px)Medium devices Desktops (≥900px)Large devices Desktops (≥990px)

.hidden-lg Visible Visible Visible

Content Grouping

Wells, panels, and callouts are available to help visually group content.

Wells

Wells are most often used in the sidebar to group content that may or may not be related to its surrounding content.

Example

Upcoming Open House
