(Submitting the above form is equivalent to visiting the url
where <path> denotes the value entered in the path field and <filename> denotes the value entered in the filename field. Leaving the filename field blank is equivalent to entering index.html there.)
[The documentation that used to be linked to here is somewhat out of date, and so the links have been removed. New documentation will come soon; meanwhile, you will just have to ask a person.]
The script update.py can only be used from within the School or by logged-in users.
Examples of its use:
(When the path starts with "u/", these first two letters can be omitted. So
is equivalent to the second of the two examples above.)
To update a unit of study web page from this page, in the directory box above enter something of the form
UG/JM/MATH1xxx, UG/IM/MATH2xxx, UG/IM/STAT2xxx, UG/SM/MATH3xxx, UG/SM/STAT3xxx, ...
(as appropriate), leaving the filename box blank. Then click "preview update".
Alternatively, use another update page:
On each page generated by update.py there will be, at the bottom of the page, on the left, in a small font, a link labelled "About this page", which points to an information page for the page in question.
Internal or logged in users can update the page by clicking "About this page", and then, on the information page, finding and clicking the link labelled "update the page".
A page's information page is itself updated whenever the page is updated (or even update previewed).
