HomePHP Page 3 - The Design of an Intranet Application Framework
Design Code/Templates - PHP
This article is the second part of a series on intranet application frameworks. Now that we know what the application framework is all about and how it is going to work in an intranet environment, we are going to look at the overall structure and design of the intranet and the applications. Keep reading to see how this will be done.
As you can see from the screen shot, I've not exactly exhausted the budget on the design of the page, but it is done neatly and presents the user with clear choices. This page provides the user with links to all the other applications in the intranet, through the navigation panel on the left. The neat presentation of the page is caused by the use of CSS. The code for it is below:
This style sheet is responsible for making all the pages in the intranet look smooth and neat. If you want to make a change in a particular part of the site, you just make it here and all the pages linked to it will apply the changes. You can see the advantage in this. Instead of going to each and every page on a site and making fixes, you just do it once and the changes will go throughout the site.
