GREAT Frontier Web Site for March 9, 1998
Gwen Coleman describes the project:
There are two macros that convert absolute urls to relative urls for both A HREF tags and IMG tags. These are used in the template to allow local viewing of the pages and accommodate directory structures of any depth.
There is also a macro that looks at the first directory in the subdirectoryPath to determine which section of the website the current page is in and changes the navigation button for that section to a hilighted state.
And finally, there is a macro that looks at the first item in the subdirectoryPath and then goes to one of five different macros that control the subnavigation for that section. These macros look at the second part of the subdirectoryPath or the filename to figure out which image, if any to hilight.
Frontier has provided a more efficient way for us to produce sites. Eliminating the grunt work of reproducing a template structure repeatedly and needlessly. Thus we can spend time working on content and designing the core information.
