Cascade Tip of the Month: Simplify Your Visit Us Page

Gone are the days of updating directions and embedding maps on your Visit Us page.

Reduce your upkeep AND help visitors find you by adding a link to your building’s Campus Map page. Visitors will find a photo of the building, an interactive map, the address, accessibility info (where available) and directions via Google Maps, all in a mobile friendly format. Take a look at the Wren Building’s page.

Ready to add a link to your building’s page?

If your site is located under www.wm.edu:

  • Create an Internal Link as you normally would.
  • Your building’s page is located in /www.wm.edu/about/visiting/campusmap/location/.

If your site is located under business.wm.edu, education.wm.edu, law.wm.edu or vims.edu:

  • Go to the Campus Map, browse or search for your building, and copy the web address of the page.
  • In your site, create an External Link as you normally would, using the web address you just located.

Need help? Reach out to your Cascade manager or drop in at our next Q&A session. If you notice anything amiss with your building’s page, let us know. Content for the Campus Map is provided by Google Maps, Disability Services and other campus partners.

Happy editing!
