GCSE Website Project

Extracts from this document...


GCSE Website Project Identification For my web page project I am going to redesign the school's web site. The site is aimed at future students, parents of these future students and students already attending the school. It will include information about the subjects the school offers and current school activities, such as drama productions. It will also include a school calendar and helpful links such as revision sites that can be used by students. A web site would be the best idea as it can be updated regularly and can be accessed from all over the world. The school thought about sending out information leaflets to parents but decided against it as it would be a waste of money and resources and also future students would not get a copy. To design a web page which is easy to understand and navigate through. I have decided to use Macromedia Flash 4.0 because it contains all the features necessary to create the required layout for my web site. I thought of using HTML but it would be more difficult and much more time consuming. To enhance the Flash web site I will also use HTML, VBScript and JAVA Script. This will give my site the benefits of all four programming languages. I did not use VBScript and JAVA Script alone because they cannot be used alone to create a web page. ...read more.


I then thought that I could make the buttons in Macromedia Flash 4 to save on download times and to enhance the buttons, which in flash can have a mouse over and mouse down picture so the button can look like a real button not just a word in fancy writing. I then drew up two more designs including these extra features that I had decided to add. (Figure 1.3 and 1.4) I then look at my designs and thought that it could be a good idea to do the whole site in Flash and then insert the movie in to a HTML file. I then drew up a final design, which was to be created completely in Flash. (Figure 1.5) Implementation I did the whole site in Macromedia Flash 4 which included a lot of programming I did the site like a desktop of a computer and this included separate instance movies within the main movie and these each contained and different page of the site. So I created a function that made the instant movies visible and invisible depending on the button that was clicked. First all the instance movie visible must be turned invisible so the function "turn_invisible" is run this is activated when the button is clicked. Begin Tell Target ("/home") Set Property ("", Visibility) ...read more.


{ window.open("...\subjects\IT.htm","","top=100,left=100,width=310,height=260,buttons=no,scrollbars=no,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,status=no,directories=no,toolbar=no"); } Function ModernLanguages() { window.open("...\subjects\ML.htm","","top=100,left=100,width=310,height=260,buttons=no,scrollbars=no,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,status=no,directories=no,toolbar=no"); } Function English() { window.open("...\subjects\english.htm","","top=100,left=100,width=310,height=260,buttons=no,scrollbars=no,location=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,status=no,directories=no,toolbar=no"); } </script> </body> </html> Analysis I am really happy with my final website because it included all the criteria that I have set for the website to get the maximum effect of the site. I have made the buttons into icon, which are large and can be understood easily the colour I think work very well with each other and the idea of using a windows layout for the website was very different. I think that the site was a great success the only problem I have at the moment is that the icons I have used are copyrighted and would be illegal to upload so if this site was to be uploaded I would have to get some free icon, or make some of my own. The website is good apart from when the browsing computer has a funny resolution it will look different and to the extremes the user might not be able to read the text. Another problem with uploading the site and replacing the current site is that the site requires a Macromedia Flash Plug-in, which some older systems might not have and would take about 4 minutes to download, also if the computer is very slow the animations may be very slow and not as effective as they are intended to be.
