Creating WWW Pages for Projects


This page specifies the guidelines to create web pages for LAMP projects. We expect all the projects to at least use the main frame for format. After the starting point you may put in your own description and details. Create your project relative to the research directory. A sample project template is stored in a zip file for your reference.

Guidelines:

  • Click here to download the zip file. Unzip the archive and refer to the README.txt for general infromation and instructions.
  • Make sure that the layout of the web page is correct. It should display the links to the different sections of LAMP at the top. It should also have the LAMP logo in the
    top-left corner. To the left side of the description, you should give the links to different sections of your project e.g. Overview, Documents, Contact Info. etc.
  • The description should also serve as the home page of your project. So you may put a welcome message and/or and introduction on it.
  • Preferably put the documents in PS or PDF format only.
  • Location of projects: Put your projects in the research directory. They should be accessible when the viewer clicks on http://lamp.cfar.umd.edu/media/research.htm

How to set up the web-pages:

  • Create a folder for your project. Say PROJECT_NAME.
  • Suppose you have following sections in your web-page; About, Overview, Documents, Contact. For each section you may create a different page or put them in individual folders.
  • You can use any structure within the main folder. But make sure the project is self-contained.
  • Provide correct hyperlinks to access documents or other sections.
  • We recommend using DreamWeaver or similar site creating software for better folder management.

Note: To maintain the relative structure of links and web-pages in DreamWeaver

In DreamWeaver, you can organize your project pages using the 'Site' menu. It allows to create new site and eases the management of sub-folders. You can select a folder on the local drive to host the site. Later on there may be a situation that you have to move the pages through the site such that the links may be broken. In such a case, you can simply 'drag and drop' the pages in the new folder(s). DreamWeaver will recognize the 'broken links' and ask you if you want to update them.

Example of folder organization:

Consider the folder Documents. Put all the manuals and tutorials of your project in this folder. Write an index.htm file which will serve as the introductory page for the project. The index.htm file will contain the link to documents.htm file. The documents.htm file will have links to the actual documents stores in the documents folder. Provide correct hyperlinks for the manuals and/or tutorials stored.
