Web Standards


  • Pages developed for the State of South Dakota must use HTML 5 for the content and CSS for the formatting.

  • If there is a need for any server side scripting, (such as web forms, or web applications) they must be developed with C# ASP.Net version 4 or above and .Net Framework version 4 or above. PHP is not supported. It is recommended that BIT Development personnel be involved for any ASP.Net, AJAX development and database programming.

  • If client side scripting is needed, use JavaScript. Please avoid the use of JavaScript scripting for basic site navigation or functionality, and all data checking/manipulation. Consider that potential site users might have client side scripting disabled.

  • Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress or Joomla are not supported. The only exception to this is SharePoint and the BIT CMS.
