This project linked a page to our website. Click on the Netiquette page link and you can see the page I created.
The first thing I did was to search on Netiquette rules to get an idea of things to include. I decided I wanted NETIQUETTE to be an acronym to help readers remember these rules. Thus, I chose 10 rules that could be represented by each letter in the word. Some were quite easy, while others required a little ingenuity. Afterwards, I then just wrote what each of the 10 rules meant. The last thing, was to work on the formatting for the page.
Once again, Dr. Snelson’s videos were extremely helpful. I could not get my callout box to correctly float to the right. I also ran into the problem of my footer moving to the top of the page. No matter what I tried, nothing worked. Then, I remember there was a video on fixing problems. Good thing, cause I don’t think I ever would have figured it out on my own. How did the first person who did figure it out do so? Like the number of licks in a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop, the world may never know.
As I move forward, I am sensing, while we will be learning a lot more about Dreamweaver, the page formatting will be the easiest part. I think what will be the toughest part for me is to determine what actual information to put on the page. Once I can figure that out, the modules tend to guide themselves. Oh, and let’s not forget all the reading!
