Content: if questionable content is found on your site, you will be asked to remove it.
Scripting: no scripting other than ASP using either Jscript or VBScript. Also, use of parent paths (i.e. "../includes/include.asp") is not allowed. Please use relative pathing to avoid this.
Databases: the only supported database for student organizations is Microsoft Access via ADO. All Access files must reside on the web server (i.e. cannot be accessed from a mapped drive). If you are planning to use Access and ADO, please email us so we can assist you in setting up the correct file permissions for your database.
