Small feature instructions

The feature consists of 3 things. The headline, image and blurb.

You may be asked to add a feature to a page. You will be given the headline, an image and a blurb. Features are placed onto pages using server-side includes.

Create feature

  1. Within Dreamweaver, checkout and open the DEV-Extension/features/index.html.
  2. Also, checkout /features/template.html. Fill in the headline, image and blurb information and Save as Copy to your local /features/ folder using this format: mm-dd-yyyy.html (use today's date). You may have to create more than one feature per day. If that's the case name the other files mm-dd-yyyyb.html, mm-dd-yyyyc.html, mm-dd-yyyyd.html, etc.
  3. Create a 110px wide by 85px tall image and save to your local /features/img/ folder using the mm-dd-yyyy.jpg (or .gif) naming convention. Match the name of your HTML file.
  4. Upload the HTML file and image to their respective folders on the development server.
