Web Design & Architecture -- LIS 9723 logo


You may want to check that you understand how to set up your site in Dreamweaver, using this tutorial here. (Though you shouldn't have to reset your site.)

If you're still unclear as why file structure is important, I invite you to review the tutorials on File Structure and Pathways, and on Relative Links.

When you compress the image file, there will be a right or wrong answer -- it should be saved as an 8-bit file (png or gif) or as a jpg. A 24-bit PNG is not acceptable for the test.

FTP Sample Test

Test Prep

Our last exercise is actually a little test to ensure that you understand how to read a file structure, create one and to publish to the web. You can use any programs you like to do this test, though it can all be done with Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Both the dry run and the actual test are set up so you can create the file structure within your existing exercises website. (That means you do not need to use the Site Management process. You can create the folders and files you need in your Files Panel within your exercises website.)

Here is a "dry run" below which you can try yourself.

Welcome to the dry run of the FTP Test

The instructions are simple:

  1. Download the image below
  2. Open in Photoshop.
  3. Add your name to it (on the actual test, you will also have to add your answers to the questions)
  4. Compress the image as a 8-bit png, gif or jpg
  5. Create a web page that includes your version of the image
  6. Ensure that this web page has the following address (URL):
    http://publish.uwo.ca/~username/dryrun/index.html ("username" will be replaced with your own username).
