Caelest's Dollsite Templates

Postby Caelest » Wed May 04, 2011 6:18 am

Well, the project is on! I'll be needing help on making the manuals easy to read for html beginners.

What we have:
CSS/DIV layers template
CSS/Iframes/Tables template

What we need:
Easy to read pictorial manual for each template on how to utilize the template and update the finished website.
    Site design sketching, images and splicing images for web use
    Web pages mapping, linking and how to properly save files in folders
    Making the overall page and CSS template (Meat of the manual)
    Customizing the pages
    Uploading to the server, updating
    Glossary of terms and coding

Manuals will be in Microsoft Word.

I'd love to help out, but May is not a good time for me to promise anything. I don't have Word though, but I could get a .doc file made in Open Office. I'll keep an eye on this thread, and your needs.

Oh! I use OpenOffice too! :o I'm pretty sure it's compatible for Microsoft documents. Right?

My first concern is you're using a .rar for the template you link when you need a special program to open .rars versus .zips. For example, I went to look at it on my netbook and I can't because I don't have winRar or any of the sort. Just something you should consider :)

I thought RARs and ZIPs were compatible? Oi, another thing I'll have to find and download. XD

Yes, yes it is!

There are also lots of free programs that open RAR files. Still, ZIP files are easier, I guess.

The programs that open .rar's will open .zip's but Windows cannot unzip a .rar by itself.

Argh, I don't have WinZIP and it's not pure freeware. >_< I'm pretty sure I had it before my husband upgraded my laptop from WinXP to Win7. Weird though, I thought most Windows computers come with it these days.

I suggest you get 7zip http://www.7-zip.org/ It's free, open source, and supports pretty much every format, including zips.

If you are using windows 7 just put the stuff in a folder -> right click -> send to -> Compressed (zipped) Folder

Works for me ...

Hmm, I'll try to find it.

Anyways, I got about 1/3 of it done. I got the Body, Navigation, Content (Part 1) and Content (Part 2) done. Part 1 and 2 are regular and table pages, hence the difference. What's left is the Footer. I haven't gotten to the CSS part yet... that will be a nightmare.
I still don't have a strong enough signal yet so I'll describe what I got for now. Each portion has the code that is color coded. (Color codes are explained in the first "chapter", Understanding the Manual.) Next to parts of the coding are reference markers, like (See "Feature"). After the coding in that section, the reference markers are then explained. Sound good?

So I'm using OpenOffice and I can't figure out how to link a Table of Contents. Any ideas? I don't have MSWord. Figured it out.

Plus I had hopes of putting this in an Adobe format but then the size of the file jumped 4x the original. Yikes! Almost 100KB? No thanks!
