I’ve just been given the go-ahead to remove the access restriction on
the site I’ve put together for the MA Publishing course at the London
College of Communication:
Feedback is welcome!
Here are some points I’m particularly pleased with…
The structure is intended to flex to fit any reasonable screen size.
It does show holes if you drag it to fill absolutely massive screens
or squash it to particularly small sizes, but it should work well on
all normal display sizes.
The site’s content is editable by all five staff members of the MA
Publishing course, thanks to WebYep and Max’s WebYep actions. This is
a fantastic tool; it means I can carry on working on the Freeway
layout structure while others get on with adding the page content.
There are also two blogs ‘integrated’ into the site design, one as a
regular blog and the other as a news and announcements page. (I
wanted to keep the blogging side of things as a more personal area
than the page with generic announcements.) These were made using
Freeway 5’s Blogger template construction feature, and the navigation
simply links to the blogspot.com URLs as required.
I also used Freeway 5’s Transition features. The home page slides the
main content down (this was by popular demand from my colleagues),
and the right-hand sidebar fades in on page load - hopefully just
enough to attract a little attention but not so much that it gets
There are a few rough spots to deal with still, and the content is
also still being amended. But thanks to Freeway and WebYep the
process has been simple and the structure remains fuly editable.
BTW, on the staff page - http://www.ma-publishing.com/staff/ - you’ll
find the only pic of me that I allow for this sort of thing…
Hope y’all like it!
