Your link should look something like this:
Or, if you have uploaded your files into a subfolder, your link might look like this:
Please remember to use your HTML skills to turn your URL into an active link.
If you're having trouble uploading files to your public website, remember that there are two ways to put your files online:
1. Go to one of the campus labs and look for a folder on the desktop that has your Net-ID on it. Inside, you should see a folder titled "WWW." Anything inside that folder will appear on your public.iastate.edu website. Drag your portfolio files (index.html, style.css, any images, etc.) into the WWW folder, then test your site in a web browser to make sure it works.
2. If you are doing this from home, you can upload your files using the Acropolis file manager, located here:
Once you login, go to "Manage Files." In the left-hand column, you should see "WWW" among the list of files. Double-click on WWW, then use the "Browse" and "Upload file" buttons at the bottom of the right-hand column to put your files into the WWW folder. If your template uses sub-folders for images or CSS files, you will need to create folders with identical names inside your WWW folder, then upload the images and/or CSS files into their respective folders. (In short, you need to make sure that the names and relationships of all files inside your portfolio directory are EXACTLY the same on the server.) Once you have uploaded your files, test your site in a web browser to make sure it works.
