Specific Instructions for Final Project:
Perform all of the following steps to complete this assignment:
1) Begin by creating a new file in your text editor and include all of the basic HTML code like you did in your previous assignments. Or you can simply make a copy of your HTML file from last week and name the new copy UboguVictoryFinalProject.html , but be careful not to overwrite your file from last week because you will need it again for your Final Project this week.
3) Upload this file to the HTML validator to check for compliance with the HTML5 standards. Your file should pass validation. If you receive any errors or warnings, then go back through the previous steps of the assignment again until you have corrected all errors and your file passes validation. .
4) Create another new file in your text editor and save it as FinalProject.css or make a copy of last week’s CSS file, being careful not to overwrite last week’s file.
5) In your CSS file, write code to set the background color of your page to #E6CCB3 and write code to center the h1 element. Save your CSS file.
6) Access your webpage again in your browser and confirm that your page has a light brown background and that the heading is centered. Upload your CSS file to the CSS validator to check for compliance with the CSS standards. Your file should pass validation. If you receive any errors or warnings, debug your CSS code until you have corrected all errors and your file passes validation.
7) Open your Final Project HTML file for editing. Design a home page to showcase your semester’s accomplishments. Using Lab 12-1 as a model, create a drop-down menu at the top of the page. The entries on the drop-down menu should read “Assignment 1” through “Assignment 7” (1 navigation link for each assignment you did this semester). You should also have a “Home” link that will link to your Final Project HTML file (your Home page).
8) In your zip file this week, you will include ALL files created this semester for ALL assignments that you did. You will need to include all associated files (HTML, CSS, images, etc.) for every assignment. Make sure that you test every link and confirm that all of your previous assignments display correctly and that your navigation links work as expected, allowing users to navigate through your entire website, referring every assignment you did and returning back to the Home page of your site. Your navigation menu should be consistent on every page and should allow users the opportunity to navigate from any page of your website to any other page of your website.
10) Before submitting your assignment, validate your HTML and CSS files one last time at Validation Service AND W3C, using the “Validate by File Upload” option. Note: It is critical that you debug and fix ALL errors identified by the validator before submitting your assignments. Contact your instructor for assistance if you are having difficulty debugging and fixing your errors because it is imperative that all of your code files pass validation.
11) Create a zip archive containing all pages pertaining to your website (.html files, .css files, .js files, image files, etc). Make sure you maintain the necessary directory structure in your zip archive so that your webpages will refer correctly when unzipped. In other words, if your images are in a sub-folder, in relation to the folder containing your .html file, then you need to maintain that same directory structure in your zip archive, too, including the sub-folder. Submit only the zip file for grading.
Before submitting your web site:
- Validate your HTML file at W3C, using the “Validate by File Upload” option, and fix any errors that the validator identifies before submitting your web site for grading.
- Validate your CSS file, using the “Validate by File Upload” option, and fix any errors that the validator identifies before submitting your web site for grading.
