Dreamweaver Help
« on: December 03, 2012, 01:18:22 pm »
I am struggling with Dreamweaver with many issues.

1. Trying to create a contact page by taking one of my previous assignments contact pages and inserting it into my current layout.

2.  Wanted to put a slide show on my home page.  Once again using code from a previous assignment and inserting it into my current layout.

3.  On my Resume page, the instructor wants me to put the actual copy into the spaces provided as opposed to dropping jpgs in of my resume
4.  Also, I need to give a link for a printable resume.

5.  I need to put secondary navigation in at the bottom of the page.  What do I do?  Copy what is at the top and put it at the bottom too?

Here's my link:   http:dmcgreevy.aisites.com/premierpro/portfolio/demo2

I only have my resume and portfolio pages up so far

My phone number is 412-719-9760

Is it possible to have someone help me this afternoon?

Hi, your questions are fairly broad, but perhaps I can help you to find some resources that will be useful to you.  Unfortunately when I go to: http://dmcgreevy.aisites.com/premierpro/portfolio/demo2  I get a file not found error, I played around with your path some and see that you actually have a file here: http://dmcgreevy.aisites.com/premierpro/portfolio/demo2.html

In response to your questions:

1. You should be able to paste the code that you used from your previous contact form into the contact page that you have created for this site.  If it is not working properly, you may be better off creating a new contact form.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_DcJNQLUjE

2. Like the contact form, you should be able to reuse your slideshow code from before.  The slideshow may be a little more complex as it most-likely has supporting files that you need to implement as well.  You may be better off creating a new slideshow.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yx9jl2nOlNw or http://lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/

3. For this, you will need to create an HTML page and place your resume content on this page, just like creating any other HTML page.  It may not look exactly like your printed resume, but will give your visitors all of the necessary information.  The reason behind this is that am image will not be indexable by search engines and a web-based resume will be easier for end users to read.

4. To give a link to a printable resume, you will need to create a printable resume (generally a PDF) file and upload it to your web space, then provide a link to that file.  http://www.thesitewizard.com/faqs/link-pdf-dreamweaver.shtml

5. The text links that you have placed at the bottom of this page are exactly what you should have for secondary navigation.  Generally this is created for users who do not have the ability to display images or Flash based elements.  http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/06/06/planning-and-implementing-website-navigation/
