The EERE Style Guide Gets a Facelift!

The style guide is one of the most popular resources on the Communication Standards website. It's a valuable tool for ensuring that all EERE products use the same rules for punctuation, capitalization, and style. To make this great tool even better, we've recently made a ton of changes to it. [More]


New Page Explains Partnership Websites

clock January 23, 2013 18:59
Partnership websites are created when EERE partners with any outside organization—another office in DOE, another federal agency, or even a non-federal organization—in order to create a shared website. These sites are unique, because they're not always branded to EERE and they're not always hosted in its template. Our new page on partnership websites explains the options that are available.

New Page Explains How to Make a Conference Website

clock October 17, 2012 17:43
We've just posted a new Web page that explains everything you need to know to design and post a conference website. The new page explains how to design both the site and its registration page. And while we've had approved navigation labels for conference sites available for years, the new page explains what type of content belongs under those labels.

The new page is likely to evolve as DOE releases new requirements for registration sites. But we'd also like to hear from the Programs that have run conference sites in the past. What information would be useful for you? What would you like us to add to this page?

Feel free to leave your feedback and suggestions here on the blog, or mail them directly to the Communication Standards webmaster. We'd love to hear your feedback! [More]

All you have to do is upload your videos in MP4 format, and the rest is handled for you by the video skin. [More]


The External Website Pop-Up

You may have noticed that you now get a pop-up window when you click on an EERE link that points to a website outside of EERE. This pop-up is a new part of EERE's linking policy. EERE's always required that you spell out where a link will go in the link or the descriptive text around it. But now we've supplemented this with a pop-up window. [More]
