Creating standard presentation pages

The simplest form of presentation page is included as normal_page.htm in the templates folder. Two further examples of presentation pages are included within the samples folder:

  • a page demonstrating the various toolkit icons
  • a longer page with built-in table of contents

All presentation pages must be saved with properly constructed filenames, in the form lpxpgy.htm, where x is the current learning point and y the page number. In addition, the system uses the page title to determine the exact location of a page. Page titles must be constructed in the form module x-y/n, where module is the folder of the current module, x is the learning point, y the page number and n the number of pages in the learning point, for example samples 3-4/10.

All pages start with a space for inserting a heading, alongside which page x of y is displayed automatically. This feature can be deleted or modified.

Any graphics you include within your pages - other than standard toolkit images - should be saved within the module folder alongside the HTML pages. This ensures that modules are completely self-contained and makes them more portable.
