The Science of Web Page Construction

If you need to make changes, start the process over by going back into Dreamweaver and editing and saving your file.

 

The Art of Web Page Construction

Ask yourself the following questions (and you may be the only one who can answer them):

 

Rules for Saving and Naming Web Pages and Graphic Files

You should have 2 copies of your files at all times : one for your active work and one as a back-up

Save all HTML files and graphics in ONE folder named "Web Pages"

Rename all graphics to identify for future use.

Name all web page and graphic files with a name that makes "sense" to you.

Use small letters with no spaces.

Be sure to always type in the following file extensions: .html, .gif, or .jpg when saving files.

Always make a back-up.  You should always leave the lab with 2 copies of your work!

 

Troubleshooting Your Web Page

You should always have the 3 following applications open when troubleshooting:

 

PROBLEM: Graphics don't show (most problems occur because students insert the graphics from a different disk or file that doesn't have their HTML files)

src="../Teaching%20with%20the%20Web/tweety.gif" This is incorrect!

src="tweety.gif" This is correct!

 

PROBLEM: Changes to the web page don't show (most problems occur because students don't save the file or save it in the wrong place)

 

PROBLEM: Hyperlink does not work (most problems occur because students did not check all characters of the URL address in the hyperlink for errors or extra characters)

 

Web Addresses

Your address: 
http://myweb.bloomu.edu/yourname

 

Links to your other web pages
http://myweb.bloomu.edu/yourname/otherpage.html

 

For example, if you created a new web page titled hobbies.html, then the link to that page would be:
http://myweb.bloomu.edu/yourname/hobbies.html

 

For example, if you created a new web page titled flowers.html, then the link to that page would be:
http://myweb.bloomu.edu/yourname/flowers.html

 

For example, if you created a new web page titled aboutme.html, then the link to that page would be:
http://myweb.bloomu.edu/yourname/aboutme.html
