Get the Most Out of Online Resources

Jul 4, 2008
One thing you will certainly be impressed with is the types of interactive designs that most web programmers put into sites today. Menus can be enhanced using dropdown options or even simple highlights. While they may seem technical, they are scripts that can be easy to use.

Underneath the Title Bar are other bars that can be used for moving around the Internet. If you are looking for quick and easy ways to navigate, the bars located at the top of your screen under the Title Bar will be helpful. One of the most useful bars is the Menu Bar. You will quickly appreciate each of the options found on the Menu Bar.

One thing that most people are not really aware of just yet is to search for things at the best accuracy possible. You can type the usual key phrases but with lots of sites on the web, chances are you cannot immediately pinpoint the information you are looking for.

Using the + or the " " on the actual keywords can help. It helps get towards the actual terms you are looking for. There will be times they may not work due to errors in spelling or lack of terms on the web. Take these symbols out because the best possible results will be showed in the first pages anyway.

Static web sites have web pages saved on the server where users can view them. There are three main categories of software which are used in editing static web sites: a) Text editors like Notepad or TextEdit where HTML can be altered directly using the editor program; b) WYSIWYG editors like Microsoft FrontPage and Adobe Dreamweaver (known before as Macromedia Dreamweaver) which can edit the web site using a GUI interface and can automatically generate the underlying HTML, and; c) Template-based editors like iWeb and Rapidweaver wherein users can easily make and upload web sites to a web server even without any background in using HTML since they can always choose templates from the available palette and modify using pictures and text.

Website owners and web developers have the opportunity to turn their websites into something profitable and they usually do this either by making: a) Content based sites, or web sites which get revenue by selling advertising space on their site, or; b) Product or service based sites wherein products or services are offered to users (the user is provided with a payment form on the site where he can enter his credit card number or input other payment information). These two methods can also be combined in order to derive revenue and this is normally done by online auctions web sites where they charge users for availing its auction service and also shows third-party advertisements.

Contents on a dynamic web page like text, form fields, images can create navigation interactivity based on different situations or contexts. Basically, there are two techniques which can produce interactivity:

* You can use client-side scripting to alter interface behaviors in a particular web page which can react to mouse or keyboard actions or at an indicated timing event. Through this, dynamic behavior happens within the presentation.

* You can use server-side scripting to alter the given page source between pages, changing the sequence or reload of the web content or web pages supplied to the browser. Server responses may be based on conditions such as data in a posted HTML form, parameters found in the URL, the kind of browser used, the database or server state or the passage of time.
