Linking Guidelines

Getting pages linked to the website’s upper level pages

Notify the webmaster when your pages are ready to be linked with upper level pages on the UMaine Extension website. Your pages will be checked for compliance to UMaine Extension’s web standards and then linked to the UMaine Extension site (usually within 2 business days) after those standards are met.

Linking to external sites

Links to external sites should be considered carefully on a case-by-case basis. Adding links to external sites implies that we endorse everything on those sites, despite our disclaimer statement. Relevant program staff should thoroughly review sites before linking, in order to determine if the content is appropriate and useful to University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s clients. See Section 4.11 of the Policy and Procedures Manual for complete guidelines.
