Create your own web site
You may create the website with any tool. Present your models, drawings, plans that you created up to now here at the university regarding:
- should contain at least two pages,
- start page must be index.html in your /public_html folder,
- all your pages should be accessible from the starting page through one or more link, and no links should be dead,
- one of the pages should contain an external link, pointing to a page with more information about one of your drawings/models,
- the site should be browser-independent as possible (should look like tha same on Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.),
- all pages should contain: "Created as part of Architectural Informatics 1", using the above html code,
- (optional) place your web page on a mirror server (you may use any free service), and create a link to there on the starting page.
We do not evaluate any Flash or other non-html content, so the site should not be based exclusively on such content. The site should be personal, informative, but simple, well designed. Keep in mind, that the result is publicly accessible through the BME internet.
- Publish your web page on the internet using the Ural2 server.
- Register your page to populate the address.
- Registration. Give the full address (URL) of your page, like http://www.hszk.bme.hu/~xy123, where xy123 is your login name on Ural2 (and on the HSZK PCs). The registration is successful, if you copy the link that appears after pressing the Submit button, paste it in a browser and your page appears.
- Space and accented letters in the file names. The files and folders you copy to the public_html folder, are accessible from the Internet. The Internet now allow officially only the english alphabet and numbers (and dot, dash and underline) in an addresses (URLs), so it is more safe not to use special characters, like space, parenthesis, plus, slash, etc. in file and folder names.
- Small and capital letters in file and folder names.The Ural2 webserver uses Unix operating system, which distinguish between small and capital letters (contrary to e.g. Windows, where index.html, Index.html and INDEX.HTML is the same file and thus cannot happen in one folder). If you have a link like <a href="Drawings.html"> pointing to the file public_html/drawings.html, then it will not work after copying to Ural2 (Drawings.html <-> drawings.html), however it will work on Windows.
- Referencing a local drive. Creating your web pages on your own computer, it may happen that your link is something like "c:\users\Documents\My web page\Drawings.html". Copying this to Ural2, the link will be dead, since it points to the local drive c:\ on your computer, but Ural2 has no such drive. The workaround is to use always relative links for internal links (i.e. in "c:\users\Documents\My web page\index.html" link to "Drawings.html" instead of "c:\users\Documents\My web page\Drawings.html"). Check all your links after the final copying to Ural2.
- Folder outside public_html. If a link is like <a href="../otherfolder/somefile.html"> in the public_html/index.html file, that it will be unaccessible from the Internet, even if you have otherfolder/somefile.html, because otherfolder is not under the public_html folder. Move otherfolder to somewhere under public_html, and modify your links. Check all your links after the final copying to Ural2.
- Picture cannot be seen. Browsers presents only standard picture formats (like jpg, gif and png), other formats may be shown only by their own applications (bmp: Windows Paint, cpt: Corel Photopaint, psd: Photoshop, etc.), so do not use these on web pages. Attention: if you want Photoshop or Corel Photopaint to save jpg, do not rewrite the extension to jpg, instead change the file type to save in the File types drop down.
