Create hyperlinks to each new page from the My_Class_Schedule page.  On each new page type some information about each class, including the class name, the teacher's name, and the room number.  Select a different background color for each of your class pages.

To insert the current date and time choose [Insert] from the menu bar and then choose [Date and Time] from the drop-down menu.  The top of this web page shows what this line should look like.  If you do this on one page, you can then highlight the line, then use Control + C to copy it, and then use Control + V to paste it into each of your pages.  

When your website is up to date  and contains all the required page and hyperlinks, you may work on making your pages more elaborate.

04 Apr 2005 Monday  (Day 05 of 4th quarter)

Use the New Page icon to create a new page and name it "Site Map Page".  Create a hyperlink on the Home page to the site map page.  

The site map page should have each and every page in your website listed in alphabetical order, with a hyperlink to each page.  

To make your site map page more useful each page may have more than one entry.  For example, the About Me page may have another entry on the site map page called "Information about the author", which will also provide a hyperlink to the About Me page

You should have at least 14 entries in your site map page, one for each of the pages listed in the assignment for yesterday.  Also you should create an entry and a hyperlink to any pictures you have entered into your website.  

From this point on each time you add a page you need to also add a hyperlink  in your site map page to the newly created page

After you have created a site map page, you will create a Sports and Entertainment page where you will list you favorite sports and entertainments.  Add a hyperlink to this new page from the  Home page and also from the site map page

Also today you will learn how to create a Dynamic Link Effect.  Click the instructions on How to Create a Dynamic Effect Effect and follow the instructions.


05 Apr 2005 Tuesday  (Day 06 of 4th quarter) 

Yesterday you learned how to created Dynamic Effects on a web page, and you learned about a site map page.  You also should have created a Sports and Entertainment page.

Today you will learn how to check your hyperlinks without having to look at each one, one at a time. To learn about viewing your hyperlinks all at once, click here for the information on how to view all your hyperlinks.  You will do this with your website and see how it is linked.  You will also learn how to find web pages that are not linked.  Unlinked web pages are AKA orphaned pages. Click here for information on finding web pages that have been created, but not linked to any other page in your website.  After reading the instruction check your web to see if you have any orphaned pages.  

After checking all hyperlinks and checking for orphaned pages, create a page called "My Favorites" and provide a hyperlink to it from your home page. Remember to use Save As to save it. This is the page you will use to list your favorite websites on the internet.  Add some hyperlinks to various websites into the My Favorites page. Then continue working on your sports and entertainment page. 

To add an internet website to your "My Favorites" page, copy the URL of the site and paste it on your page.

Add some text and also insert a few pictures into this page.  Put the photographs in a vertical column, not side by side..  Center the inserted photographs.  Save the page again and any other pages as needed. View you website using the Preview Tab, or with Internet Explorer, to check that the hyperlinks from your home page, and from the Site Map Page, to your two new background pages work, and also so you can see the effect of watermarking a background. You will not notice anything if the page is not long enough to have the scroll bar visible.

The title of this page must be "My Favorite Music Groups".  Save this page using Save As with the name of "Music3ColumnPage"  You may list songs you like and information about the members of the group.  You should insert hyperlinks to the band's website. You may enter pictures of each group but make them into thumbnail so it will fit in the column. If you use a photo you must save it to your web folder, do not link it to an internet site.  Also you must give credit to the site that provided the picture. (Your choice of groups will probably not be the same as mine. I probably would have chosen The Grateful Dead, The Doors, and Led Zeppelin)  Have fun with this assignment.  Remember to save the page and then create hyperlinks to the new page from the home page and from the site map page, and from your Sports and Entertainment page.

This can be confusing.  Read this several times and view the teacher's frames page before attempting to do this.  

Create a new folder in your web folder called FramesPage1.  Do this before opening front page.

Today we will create a frames web page.   Do not use the New Page Icon to start a frames page. Instead click [File] then [New] then [Page] then choose the [Frames page] tab. Then choose the icon for [Banner and Content].  

Use this if you do not have a FramesPage1 folder. Once you have created the page use [File] and [Save as] to save it in a new folder which you will create in your website folder.  Use the new folder icon and call the new folder "FramesPage1".  

Select the newly created folder and save your new blank frames page with the name of "FramesPage1".

Click here to view a sample frames page.  In this sample page you can see that the teacher created four new pages, or frames, and also used two existing pages for page 5 and page 6 of  this frames web.  You should create an initial page and save it, then a contents page and save it, then create a new page for the initial page and save it as the initial page.  Then use the New Page Icon to create another page and save it as "FramesPage1Page1".  Repeat this process until you have saved 4 pages in your FramesPage1 folder.  Create hyperlinks in the normal manner from the left hand column. Save your work and view it.  After viewing continue to add either new pages or hyperlinked pages until you have at least a dozen pages listed in your frames page. You can create hyperlinks to any of your existing pages or photographs. Hyperink to your new frames page from your homepage, your about me page and to your site map page.
