CS 318 Lab 24 – Workday

Dear students,

There are a few topics I had hoped to address this semester, like these:

  • styling a WordPress blog
  • a Bootstrap-style grid layout

We will tackle one of these on Monday. Which would you prefer?

Also, after having examined your first prototypes, I’ve added a few extra requirements to the final project:

  • All images must be placed in a directory named images.
  • All CSS files must be placed in a directory named styles.
  • Styles that are common to all pages across your site should be placed in a single file, perhaps called common.css. Page-specific styles should be placed in a separate file. In the HTML, you can include both the common and the specific CSS. For example, an HTML page named contact.html might include the styles in this way:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/common.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/contact.css">
  • All files must pass the W3C validator.

I debated about what we should do today. But our time is really fragmented, and students are generally frazzled around this time, so today is going to be another workday. I would have said something sooner, but today is also evaluation day, and if I’d said that today was a workday, you wouldn’t have come.

Here’s your TODO for next time:

  • Keep working on your second prototype. I switched the second peer review date to May 10, the last day of class.
  • I will be gone on Wednesday to the WI state math teachers’ conference. Bailee will be here. Another workday!

See you next time!
