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.

Update on the EERE Linking Policy

clock April 16, 2010 13:53
Over the last few months, we've been working to update the EERE Linking Policy, which describes what external Web sites you can link to and how.

Our linking page now lists our only two requirements: Follow the DOE Linking Policy, and tell visitors when you link offsite. [More]


Updates to the EERE Linking Policy

EDIT: The updated Linking Policy is currently in review and, unfortunately, will not be live on the site until that is completed. We apologize for announcing a change that is not ready to be viewed on the site. If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

Not very long ago, we announced that we had completely updated the EERE Linking Policy—the policy that explains which external Web sites you should link to from EERE Web sites, and in what context. [More]


Parking Lot Questions: YouTube, the Multimedia Site, Video Formats

clock May 19, 2009 12:52
On April 30, the EERE Web Team presented on standards, social media, and multimedia at the April 2009 Web Coordinators Workshop. During the workshop, we wrote down several questions that we weren't able to answer during the already packed-to-the-brim presentations.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to go through our parking lot questions and answer them here on the blog. And if you have any other questions, or are confused about the answers here, feel free to chime in and comment on these posts!

But, before I begin, I'd like to remind everyone: As we mentioned during the workshop, there are some issues that we do not yet have processes, standards, or even guidelines for. When we don't have hard-and-fast standards for you, we'll try to at least tell you what we're working on and what you should do in the interim.

With that said, let's move on to the questions for this week:


How will YouTube affect where EERE videos will be hosted?
How do we submit new content for the EERE Multimedia site?
What do we do with videos in Windows Media format? [More]


Blogs, Navigation Labels, and Top Five Lists

clock September 24, 2008 12:03
You may have noticed over the last few weeks that we've been making a ton of little changes across the Communication Standards Web site. Today I'd like to highlight three changes that site owners across EERE may be interested in: the new EERE Blog Policy, the updated Library of Approved Navigation, and three new lists covering Top Five Standards You Need to Know—one for all three types of standards.
