Right now, this page is a place-holder for what will be described.  There is already a working template for construction-structure pages though.

Every section (mini-Web) of Orcmid's Lair has an index.htm page.  These pages accomplish three things:

Cloning construction materials.  The best way to clone construction materials to other sections is by opening the page that you want as boilerplate and then doing a Save As ... that puts it in its initial place.  This will update links to images and include pages properly.

The minimal construction structure of a section consists of the index.htm page.  

The next level of construction structure consists of a Construction Zone, including a job jar (c000000.htm) and construction.htm page.  Once there is construction material, there must be a construction.htm page.

In addition to providing descriptive information and documentation, the master version of this page is also a template for construction-structure pages of this site.  The template features depend on the use of Microsoft FrontPage for the development and maintenance of this material, and are only fully available when these web pages are accessed using Microsoft FrontPage.  

Informal Template Usage

  1. This page can be used as a boilerplate for a full page based on the default style for construction-structure pages of this site.  In Microsoft Front Page, make a copy of the page and then derive the new page by transformational editing:

  2. The title block -- the table at page top -- can be copied by itself to produce a title block with the correct styles and the automatic inclusion of the correct left-section image for this site.

  3. The construction block -- the table at page bottom -- can be copied by itself to produce a construction block with the correct styles,  the automatic inclusion of the left-side Hard Hat image and link, and the "you are navigating ..." information in the center section of the block.  The right-side material will be updated automatically by Microsoft Visual Source Safe, but the "created ..." line must be updated manually.

FrontPage "Include Page" Components

These features are not visible on the published versions of these web pages.  The effect of the components will be present, but the components themselves are not on the published pages.   The components only appear with access of the pages by Microsoft FrontPage.

Title Image Link: c000003a

Orcmid's Lair

This component creates the table-cell image by inclusion of page C000003A.htm.  The component provides the image associated with this site, a title expressing the name of the site, and a shortcut to the site itself at its official URL.  The image shown will be the one that was active at the date this page was last published.

Construction Image Link: C000003B

Construction Structure (Hard Hat Area)

 

This component creates the table-cell image by inclusion of page C000003B.htm.   The standard form of the image provides the caption "Hard Hat Area" and an anchor-relative link to the construction section of the site.

 "You Are Here ..." text: C000003C

You are navigating the 
Orcmid's Lair construction structure

 This component creates the table-cell text by inclusion of page C000003C.htm.  The component provides the text that we want to have present in the construction block of construction-structure pages of this site.  Anchor-relative links are used to find the identified sections, so the inclusion can be used from anywhere on the site so long as the anchor assumptions hold.

FrontPage Style Inclusion 

The FrontPage Style inclusion used for this and other non-construction Construction Section pages is in page C000003e.htm.  That page describes how the background and basic styles are set on that page and how they are used from other pages.

The text from c000003d is captured here and the c000003d page is deleted so it can be replaced by Front Page Styles as part of restructuring.  This page will be tidied up after everything is moved around to where it belongs.
