When you are putting together a Research Framework there are a number of standards required to ensure that the network is consistent. It is also worth remembering that web pages function very differently to a monograph or paper publication. Before creating your pages look at other Frameworks on the site and map out what pages will be needed, and what menu structure works best for your Framework.
Consider you audience – remember that the Frameworks website is for everyone, therefore non-specialists will be reading your work.
Menus – look at other frameworks for examples, keep menu titles short, use nesting under titles for more pages on the menu. Always include the 3 standard menu items;
Use of images – captions, Alt-text, resolution, featured image
USE OF PDFs
Use of Template – ensure that if the page has headings (H2 and H3) the template used is Default template; if no headings are used in the text (eg. it’s a very short page) change the template to Full Width.
Use of heading tags
Centralisation of images, or inline text
Use of the caption option on images, not an extra block
Consider turning on the ability to enlarge images to full screen – especially for tables or diagrams.
Alt-text – this is not necessary if there is a caption which explains the image, if the image is purely cosmetic, or if the image is described in the text.
If you use links in your text remember that you’ll need to check these periodically – use the Broken Link Checker.
