Is most of the content on your site, including any resources and accompanying explanatory text, under the same CC license? If so, you should definitely make this clear to the user. You can do this by clearly displaying the CC license icon on every page, especially the home page. Ideally, you should embed the licensing code into the template itself (the “chrome”) which already surrounds every page so that you need encode it only once. If you select your license at http://creativecommons.org/license/, this code will be provided for you.

Is most of the content on your site, including any resources and accompanying explanatory text, under the same CC license? If so, you should definitely make this clear to the user. You can do this by clearly displaying the CC license icon on every page, especially the home page. Ideally, you should embed the licensing code into the template itself (the “chrome”) which already surrounds every page so that you need encode it only once. If you select your license at http://creativecommons.org/license/, this code will be provided for you. We also recommend using text such as "Unless otherwise noted, everything on this site is licensed CC BY." If you do include content that is licensed differently, then you should clearly label it as such.
