Page Building

The Page Building section of the Frog Wiki contains helpful articles on the basics of Page Building and how to use some of the more advanced features available on your Frog platform.

A list of the most frequently asked questions on Page Building can be found in the below article:

Frog Tags

Frog Tags are internal fields that you can set on a page to invoke the display of a variety of system data.

From usernames, to page names, dates and times, Frog Tags can keep your pages more active with live up to the minute data.

FFT Tags are a special type of Frog tagging system that makes it easy to quickly create different content from a single template FRG file.

Meta Tagging

Meta Tagging is a function that allows users to "tag" resources to be used in searches or with the content tagging Frog Tags throughout the platform.

Link Actions

Link Actions are actions that can be placed on text or images to allow the end user to perform different tasks at the click of a mouse. A full list can be found in the article Link Actions.

Dashboards

The Dashboard is the first page a user sees when they log in and is a customisable page, where users can add the components they want to customise their experience with Frog 3. This video shows how to get started making amendments to dashboards and push them out to users.

Templates

Templates allow a standard page layout to be applied to any webpage. Any changes made to a Template are automatically applied to any pages that are based on that Template. This means that making changes to multiple pages is quick and easy. This video covers an introduction to templates and how to get started building your own!

Templates can also be set as the default webpage in a similar way that a school would use headed notepaper. For example, a Template can be used to ensure that all new web pages produced in Frog carry the school logo, fonts and colours. This method when used in conjunction with the login profiles ensures a consistency of design across the whole school site.

Templates can even be set to an individual login profile to allow further customisation of your users experience.

The three articles below will outline the various methods of using Templates.

Containers

Containers are re-usable items that can be dragged onto a page and then have additional content displayed within them. A good example of this might be an iPad or iPhone container that displays a feed or images. This video explains how to go about creating your own container in Photoshop.

Page anchors

Frog does not natively support the ability to create page anchors, however these can be implemented using the HTML brick. This link, covering Page Anchors shows how to do this.
