How to Access Your Student Club Web Site

If you use a PC, you will need to know the server path to the club you are looking for, which look like this:

           \\winona.edu\dfs\Community\Web_StudentClubs\<club directory>  

Except instead of <clubdirectory>, put the name of your actual club. Then open up Run through your desktop and copy paste that information in. This will enable you to open the folder for your club and manage the site.

  • Note: You will need to get the address for your club storage from a club president, student senate, or the warrior hub.


Mac Dialog for "Connect To Server"

If you use a Mac, you will use the Finder menu to open the web site for your management. From the menu bar select Go>Connect to Server. It will open a dialog box in which you can enter the path for the web server on which the Student Club site is kept.

You will need to type in the path. The path to type is:

  smb://webstore.winona.edu/webstore/StudentClubs/

Add it (using the + symbol) to the list of your available servers. Clicking on the Connect button will install the site as an icon or server onto your desktop, and you can open it and access the folder for your Club and in this way manage the site.

Managing Your Student Club Web Site

Student Club and personal Student Web sites can be managed manually by copying files to or removing files on them, or you can set up Dreamweaver to manage the site.
