DARS Help Graphics - Original and Reduced
At UK, we changed to .png graphics -- which were being used by the DARSweb 3.5.1 HELP web pages -- to .gif graphics.

We then needed to update the HTML code from <img src="???.png"> to <img src="???.gif"> on these three HELP pages too. This is so these web pages would be referring to the new file names ending in .gif.

  1. darsweb351adv/Help.html
  2. darsweb351stu/Help.html
  3. darsweb351stu/ParseAuditHelp.html

We used Miami University's original .png graphics files in the /images folder to create .gif graphics files. The .gif files have much smaller file sizes, so they would load on a web page much faster. This is important -- especially for those running DARSweb via a modem connection from a home PC.

This reduced the size of the graphics by about 90% (from 1,864 KB to 184 KB). You would need to switch out the graphics on both ADVISOR and STUDENT sides of DARSweb 3.5.x.
