OU Campus - Style-Guide

WKU Website Style Guide

Most of the things mentioned on this site are recommendations - not mandates.  Notice we said...most.  Don't worry, the website police are usually at Einstein's having coffee and muffins.  If something is required or mandated, it will be made clear on this site. 

If your site violates a style mandate (such as modifying the stylesheet elements that have not been approved for modification) you will be contacted and politely (at least the first few times) asked to conform to the standards.

Please use the links on the left to learn about the different guidelines.  If you have questions about any of this, please feel free to contact Public Affairs - Creative Web Services at

If you have style suggestions, please contact Public Affairs - Creative Web Services at


What is Website Style?

Website styles are how the text, links, and images are formatted for display.  It has nothing to do with how cool the person who makes the website looks, however cool they are.

Styles are typically accomplished through the use of CSS - and many of the styles for your site will be automatically created...but some of it requires you to be proactive about choosing styles (such as heading tags).
