Also note that a manual trigger should be developed so the reader can access each template individually (just in case they are looking for something they saw earlier).  This could be as simple as having "1 2 3 4" links to each template.

Both advertizing boxes (Specialty Projects and Wiki Projects) are set to display a different image daily. For maintenance purposes (or curiosity) the templates can be accessed using the "news clips" links.

Image map above only goes to temporary links and the bullet hub coloration (currently blue) can be modified to any desired color.

Some of these elements were taken from Caleb's page (had to construct a relative div box to eliminate a patrolling issue).

Note: (update: successfully demonstrated on June 10th) I am toying with the idea of a "poor man's javascript" wherein since we cannot have a page change elements within itself in real time (as the FS website does), would it be possible to create a "time trigger" using parser functions and conditional expressions. The idea being that each time a page (specifically the Get Involved page) is called up or is refreshed that items such as the "advertizing" boxes and sidebar (each separately controlled) could be automatically changed based on a time factor. This time factor could be based on minutes, hours, weeks, months, day of the week, day of the month, odd or even values, etc. This poor man's javascript would result in the easy updating of "news and accomplishments information" by using templates that would be displayed based on said time trigger. In playing with the equations so far it currently looks possible and is worth pursuing farther.
Also note that a manual trigger should be developed so the reader can access each template individually (just in case they are looking for something they saw earlier). This could be as simple as having "1 2 3 4" links to each template.


The first "advertising" box can be used to highlight the current or upcoming barn raising or wiki support projects. The second box (and the sidebar) can be used to highlight one or two different Wiki projects and or their status (or accomplishments). Both boxes and sidebar should be rotated with different "advertising" on a staggered monthly basis to maintain interest and patron return to this page (basically a project news center).


The bullet background color and transparency can be lightened and the option to change the image or have no image is always available.

The image below is a possible depiction of the "home page" design using familysearch themes and color schemes (header box with white text and matching accent colors placed sparingly on the page). Obviously the text on this page is strictly for example purposes only.

Note: It was mentioned at the May 29 support meeting that color coding for different experience levels may be useful (beginner, new contributors, experts). The color coding below could be used to designate those color codes.


I liked Charles' test page (I believe it was ...Sandbox/ProjectPage5) using the image (like on familysearch) and his slogan. Paraphrased a little and put it together with the Home page Title line (see below). When I remake the image I will include the same in the diagram below.
