I hope you enjoyed your Cold Day Off yesterday.
Check your Website Online – Login and Password on board
– First Photos
– Links working and photos showing up correctly
– Check Captions
Add Name and Photo to Index Page
Read instructions for next assignment: Composition and Cropping.
Today, I want you to be sure to check online to make sure your website is loading correctly and that your photos are showing up. I have uploaded your website folders, so everything that you have done should show up correctly.
Click on the link here (or above) titled: Student Pages 2019.2. Then click on your name to see your live website. Check the board for the login and password for your page.
**Change of plan due to technical difficulties. The server is undergoing some maintenance, so you won’t be able to check your live websites yet. Instead, to make sure things are working, I’m going to have you go to your Website folder and double click on your Index page to open it in a browser. This will simulate what it will look like when it goes live. Follow the directions below. I will be conferencing with you individually to look at what you still need to do.
Click on the link for your First Photos assignment, and make sure the photos appear correctly when you click on the thumbnail. Be sure your Captions appear as well and that your background is black and the titles and captions are in white.
You should also have your Name at the top of your Index page (Home Page) and a photo of yourself in the box to the left. You can use your Synergy photo or another (appropriate) photo of your choice. Here is a video showing you what to do.
If something is not working, tell me immediately. If your website is 100% okay, please read the instructions for our next assignment: Composition and Cropping. Be sure to click on the link that talks about the Rule of Thirds for some examples.
We will go over these together as a class tomorrow, and we will plan to begin taking photos on Monday.
