Site Request

While the least expensive way to get into a Conductor site, this type of site purchase can prove limiting for some clients. It provides a basic University-branded site only. A templated or DIY site is a basic site with a homepage, default (one-column), and a two-column page layout template.

If you are interested in having additional features (rotating images, custom database, modified design, colors, or fonts, you will want to contact us so that we can provide the features you want. Any additional assistance beyond what is provided with a DIY (setup and training) is billable at $85/hour. See our Billing Policy for more information.

  • Billing

    New Conductor sites are billed for a setup fee to cover the cost of creating the site, a one hour training session, and the final launch of the site. Add-ons, customization, or additional support needs will be billed at the appropriate Marcomm hourly rate. See the Marcomm billing policy for more information.

    Disclaimer

    Conductor is web-based software. Like all software, it has bugs and quirks. And because it’s web-based, it relies on your web browser to deliver the goods. Since different browsers behave differently, we have designated our list of supported browsers for the Conductor administration area. When bugs come up, we work hard to fix them quickly. However, we cannot make guarantees about uptime or availability.

    Training

    Every site includes one hour of Conductor training. You can bring as many people as you like to that training, but any subsequent training time will be billed at our standard billing rates.

    Support

    If we have to fix something, it goes through a quick filter: is it a problem with Conductor, or is it a problem with your site? If it’s a bug with Conductor, we’ll fix it for free. If the issue was caused by the customer, then support is tracked and billed out according to Marcomm web support policies.

    If you want customization or need other assistance, please contact our Web Support team at webhelp@nd.edu. Standard support billing rates will apply.

    Templates and Code Access

    This service is subsidized by the University for the purposes of providing standard templates that adhere to the University’s brand standards. As a result, we cannot allow direct access to the HTML, CSS, templates, or other code for your website. If you need customization, please contact Marcomm directly to discuss your project.

Also please keep in mind that while your URL should be descriptive of either who you are or what you do, it should also be easy to remember and easy for users to key in. So, shorter is better.
