The document is from my Interaction Design module so the information is sound.

Keyword group1 is not registered

June 6, 2011 at 8:03 am (Uncategorized)

Forgot to write about this last week. Due to the ‘rel’ tag contained in my Fancy Box code my HTML file would not validate. The below message was displayed for each of my images:

Bad value group1 for attribute rel on element a: Keyword group1 is not registered.

Each of the images contained the code –  ‘rel = group1′. This code is essential to keep the images in predefined galleries. Without it the user cannot scroll between images, they must return to the gallery and make a new selection.

While investigating, with the help of  Viveka and Oanh, I discovered there is only a small amount of appropriate/registered rel values for HTML5.

‘Group’ is not appropriate rel value in HTML5. Therefore, I changed the rel value to ‘external’ which is still a relevant to my site and more importantly registered. After this change my page validated  without a problem.

I’m assuming Fancy Box haven’t yet updated their code for the HTML5 specification. Hence, this small issue.

Fancy Box

May 29, 2011 at 12:02 pm (Uncategorized)

Thought I would quickly share the JQuery lightbox gallery I’m using on my site:
http://fancybox.net/
Nice and simple to implement with a great collection of animations, title positions and gallery options. The Polaroid style border is also a winner!!
Happy to help if anyone requires any assistance with the code.

Not very Important question but …

May 10, 2011 at 6:16 am (Uncategorized)

Where did everyone find their profile pictures for the user personas? I haven’t added any images to my draft System Plan. I couldn’t find any free people images and I’m certainly not paying for the privilege….

I understand people may have used personal photographs but I don’t appear to have any suitable photographs.

Very Interesting …..

May 5, 2011 at 12:41 am (Uncategorized)

Below is what I experienced when I attempted to open my project in Firefox 3 during class:

My project is a vertical scrolling site so as you can imagine I was in a state of panic when the page loaded. The red boxes are firebug trying to dissect the site.

After some research and some vital assistance from Oanh I realised  HTML5 tags are not fully supported in version 3 of FireFox… my sites uses section tags ….. relief!!

Some useful resources on the subject:

If you’re experimenting with HTML5 I would recommend asking Viveka and Oanh to view your site in a supporting browser e.g. Firefox 4, Chrome or Safari

Javascript Challenge

April 20, 2011 at 2:16 am (Uncategorized)

Thanks to information posted on other DMT blogs I have managed to complete the Javascript Challenge exercise. Thought I would also share the wealth. Decided to display the information in an alert box. My recent research suggests JavaScript and Jquery will play a large part in my final project. Definitely need to thoroughly understand the technology.

If you want to display the alert box again please refresh the browser : )
