Today’s topic looked at Shadow Box. Before students attempted their own, an example of what a shadow box was given and the demo to create one.
A shadow box is a text or image link which can be viewed without redirecting to a new page.
When using an image link, the image must be saved twice; one image acts as a thumbnail to the larger image, therefore one image should be saved as ‘small’ and the other ‘big’
When linking the Shadow Box to HTML, two links must be made; the first is the ‘shadow box’ folder which contains all the information which tells the site to open a link the same page. The second links are the images and/or text.
The shadow box command was then saved onto Codas ‘Exported clips’ for future use.
WDS still ranking at my favourite module so far, the lesson was easy to follow, there were a few
hiccups along the way when linking the shadow box and images to the link command, as I
forgot to link the shadow box folder firstly, otherwise a very good lesson.
