Colourful, but not for the faint of heart. The tab code is contained in a template; the trancluded template has options to specify which tab is has the focus and which are linked. For each page the template is transcluded on, that page tab should be specified as the focus while others are specified as link. The template code is here. If you need help, you might want to contact a peer helper for assistance.

Less colourful, but still not for the faint of heart. Code is here.

Web Development Templates

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

A style sheet or master page on which you can globally edit and format graphic elements and text common to each page of a web-site. These allow the application of a Common Look and Feel (CLF) framework that maintains a certain constant identity throughout a visitors' visit to the site. Changes made to the master (template) page are said to "cascade" down to all sub-pages (thus the term "cascading style sheets"). This type of template typically contains information about:

  1. font types, sizes and colours;
  2. the content and placement of navigation tools and sub-menus (in our case, displayed on the left hand side);
  3. the content and placement of tabs displayed along the top of each page;
  4. standard graphic headers and footers;
  5. copyright notices;

The primary benefit of these types of templates is that they allow the web-master to apply global changes by making a single change in one location.

A number of groups have created CSS templates for their pages, which you may use as-is or copy to a new template for modification:

To use a CSS formatting template on your page (CCO's for, example), insert:

{{#css:{{Cco-css}}}}

...into your wiki page.

Wiki Page Scaffolds

A scaffold is a style sheet or master page you can use to build your own page. Don't edit or write over these: copy and paste the code onto the new page as a framework from which to base your work on:

More may be available in: Category:Scaffolds
If you create additional scaffolds, please add them to the category and to the listing above.

Notice Templates

A page element created explicitly for its contents to be displayed on other pages. By themselves, these mini-pages hold no value, however, when included on other the GCcollab Wiki pages, Help:Notice Templates can provide valuable information as to the status of the information being presented to the reader.
