August 2006

At the meeting we covered a proposed 'Template Terms of Use' to protect the integrity of the Web Developer Network's efforts.

Additionally the chancellor has informed the deans of all academic areas that their websites must be in compliance with the WDN, using the templates.

A request to have access to read the cvs commit comments and see the changes was made at the meeting - Brett is checking on anonymous/read access to a CVS web frontend for everyone interested.

New templates were released:
    fixed (standard)
    liquid (only used when fixed will not do)
    document (prinable documents, no navigation)
    popup (standalone pages, no navigation)
    secure (sites behind a secure log-in)

To update your templates, download the UNLTemplates.zip and overwrite your old template .dwt's and choose Modify>Templates>Update Pages within Dreamweaver.

The main website, and all other sites can switch to the new templates on Monday August 14th.


Design decisions made:
    Remove the show/hide button (more... is enough)
    Keep the link color the same.
    The hover state for the 'college navigation' area will change to a dotted underline on hover.


Big thanks to Jodi Holt for providing cookies at the meeting.

Yoon Wong @ CIT has enabled anonymous access to the web cvs viewer for users ON campus.

For those of you that don't know... the CVS server allows a team of developers to all work on the same code and handles the changes from multiple people. Every time a change to the code is made the developer enters in a note of what was changed.

The Dreamweaver template files are:
http://driftwood.unl.edu/cgi-bin/files/ ... Templates/

and the templatedependents:
http://driftwood.unl.edu/cgi-bin/files/ ... ependents/

Feel free to look over the commit log entries for the changes.
