Complete clauses 1 and 2 and five others of your choice which provide you with a personal challenge.
1. Create a website on a subject of your choice, consisting of at least 5 pages with relevant content and links between them. This should be a site you have designed yourself using an HTML editor or WYSIWYG editor, not just a ready-made template.
Have created a Brownie web site. The site contains the following pages: Law, promise, Brownie Guide StoryBrownie Guide song, Brownie Bells, a brief history, programme. There are also sections for county silks (I think I have a complete collection) and county standards (no where near complete). I have also made pages for my BOGUK badge work. There are definitely more than five pages more like 105. The web site has been designed using HotMetalPro. The URL for my web site is www.100thbristolbrownies.org.uk
Clause 2. a) Be aware of copyright concerning the content of websites and the downloading of information , and put this knowledge into practice on your website
Works put on the Internet are considered "published" and therefore qualify for copyright protection. A work put on the Internet is not considered public domain simply because it was posted on the Internet and free for anyone to download and copy. You need permission from the site owner to publish any materials, including photographs, music, and artwork from the site. The best way to enforce Internet copyright is through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 is designed primarily to limit the liability of Internet service providers for acts of copyright infringement by customers who are using the providers' systems or networks.
Clause 2. b) Read the Guide Association's Internet Safety Guidelines. If your website is a Guiding site, put them into practice on your website.
I have read the Internet Safety Guideline which I would using this URL http://www.girlguiding.org.uk/xq/asp/sID.129/qx/new/about/article.asp
Clause 4. Add animated graphics to your site.
Have added a scrolling marquee does this count?
Clause 5. Add a facility to download a document from your site (rather than just copy/save as)
Have made the Brownie Story, Promise and Law, Brownie song and Brownie Bells downloadable files
Clause 6. Learn to use frames and add them to your website. Make sure links are targeted so viewers aren't trapped in your frames when they try to move on.
Have tried this on a previous attempt to build a website but have chosen not to do it this time
Clause 7. Learn basic HTML and create a web page using raw HTML rather than a package
Have done bits and pieces but can't claim to have done a whole page
Clause 9. Add links from your site to other sites of interest.
Have added a number of Guiding links on a links page
Clause 10. Evaluate the possibilities for hosting your website. Choose the one that meets your needs most appropriately. Know how to prepare your site for submission to a search engine and then submit it.
My husband already has his own site and has loads of space free so I have registered my domain on his account at the cost of £1.99 for two years! If anyone is interested in trains his site is www.brsince78.co.uk
Clause 12. Add sound or video to your site. If you add background music, make sure it has the facility for the viewer to turn it off if they wish.
Have added the music for Brownie Bells (Westminster chimes) to my site I copied this from BOGUK
Clause 13. Create a feedback form, survey form or other form for your website.
Have created a feedback form which includes radio buttons, tick boxes and drop down lists and I have even managed to make it email me successfully. Click here for my feedback form.
