In addition to providing descriptive information and documentation, this page is also a template for construction-structure pages of this site.  The template features depend on the use of Microsoft FrontPage for the development and maintenance of this material, and are only fully available when these web pages are accessed using Microsoft FrontPage.

3. FrontPage Style Inclusion

1. Informal Template Usage - Summary

1.1 This page can be used as a boilerplate for a full page based on the default style for construction-structure pages of this site. 

1.2 In Microsoft FrontPage, make a new version of the page via copy and paste.  There will be alterations of shortcuts to reflect the new location.  Some will need to be re-adjusted manually.   Make link adjustments while customizing the new page:

1.3 The title block -- the table at page top -- can be copied by itself to produce a title block with the correct styles and the automatic inclusion of the correct left-section image for this site.

1.4 The construction block -- the table at page bottom -- can be copied by itself to produce a construction block with the correct styles,  the automatic inclusion of the left-side Hard Hat image and link, and the "you are navigating ..." information in the center section of the block.  The right-side material will be updated automatically by Microsoft Visual Source Safe, but the "created ..." line must be updated manually.

1.5 The body style -- the background, font, and link colorings, must be manually edited into the <body stylesrc="c000003e.htm"> tag with recent versions of FrontPage (e.g., 2003 and later).  Although the use of a private tag for this purpose is deprecated and styles should  be applied instead, we are preserving this practice for use with older versions of Internet Explorer.  An alternative approach will be needed for proper appearance with the standards-conforming Internet Explorer 8.0.

2. FrontPage "Include Page" Components

These features are not visible on the published versions of these web pages.  The effect of the components will be present, but the components themselves are not on the published pages.   The components only appear with access of the pages by Microsoft FrontPage.

2.1 Title Image Link: c000003b

nfoWorks

 

This component creates the Title block image by inclusion of page c000003b.htm.  The component provides the image associated with this site, a title expressing the name of the site, and a shortcut to the site itself at its official URL.  The image shown is the one that was in use on the date this page was last published (including any automatic update from adjusted include pages).

2.2 Construction Image Link: c000003c

Construction Structure (Hard Hat Area)

 

This component creates the table-cell image by inclusion of page c000003c.htm.   The standard form of the image provides a "Construction Structure (Hard Hat Area)" caption and a link to the nearest index.htm page.

Because this include page finds the index.htm of this template's folder, it does not work for other parts of the site.  It is necessary to make a direct inclusion of the image and set the link to the index.htm that applies at the point of use.

 2.3 "You Are Here ..." Text: c000003d

Creative Commons License You are navigating nfoWorks construction structure.
This work is licensed under a
Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License.

This component creates the table-cell text by inclusion of page c000003d.htm.  The component provides the text that we want to have present in the bottom strip of construction-structure pages of this site by default.

For this site, the license message is used (by further inclusion).  For other sites, there may be different messages used for different pages. 

 2.4 "You Are Here License" Text: c000003f

Creative Commons License You are navigating nfoWorks construction structure.
This work is licensed under a
Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License.

This component creates the table-cell text by inclusion of page c000003f.htm.  The component provides the text that we want to have present in the bottom strip of construction-structure pages of this site that are placed under this particular license.

This inclusion can be used directly when we want to be very specific about licensing.  For the current site, the standard block provides the license anyhow.

3. FrontPage Style Inclusion 

The FrontPage Style inclusion used for this and other Construction Structure pages is in page c000003e.htm.  That page describes how the background and basic styles are set on that page and how they are used from other pages.  If manual editing is required, use <body stylesrc="c000003e.htm"> with the proper path to the style source.


Revision History:

Customize the version taken as boilerplate from ODMdev.  This provides all information with regard to using the templates.  General information about the form and styling of construction structure pages, and of all basic pages of the site, is still required.
