SIT104 Introduction to Web Development
Assignment Two (Weight 25%)
Due Date: 30 May 2015, 5pm
The assignment is a continuation of the first assignment. You will use all your knowledge of web and internet to develop a fully functional site. We expect your assignment to be developed as if it is for a real industry client. The assignment would represent what is referred to as the “beta” version in industry, which would be presented to the client for approval and sign-off.
You should extend assignment 1 by revising or adding the following features.
Create an external cascading stylesheet that all pages will link to specifying:
i. Body with the font Verdana, second choice of Arial, third choice sans serif;
ii. Body background color of your choice (or background image);
iii. Hover effect for hyperlinks.
Any presentational tags/attributes (for example, font tag and bgcolor attribute) should be replaced with appropriate styles.
Forms and PHP
Design HTML forms for accepting user input. The forms should be database driven i.e. submitting the forms will initiate database interaction.
i. Search form: The form will be used to find products based on search criterion. The form should be linked to the database and retrieve products which match the criterion selected by the user. You may implement any suitable search criterion. Examples of search criterion are:
search based on price range of products; search based on keywords in product descriptions; search based on the category of products etc.
ii. Feedback form: The form will allow users to provide feedback about their experience in using the website. The form should have appropriate fields as shown below:
The data from the form will be stored in a database table. The page containing the feedback form should have a link to a page which will retrieve and display all comments posted by users.
Appropriate data validation should be implemented for each form.
Upload all the files used within the web site to the public_html folder on your Deakin student account. The front page for your web site must be named index.html (or index.htm). You must check that all the internal links work, and that the appropriate file permissions have been set, so that there are no 403 (“Forbidden”) or 404 (“not found”) errors.
Submit the following things to the MIBT Moodle website:
i. A small text file called “readme.txt” to provide o Brief instructions to the person who is marking your assignment, about what he/she needs to do to view the site.
o The URL of the front page of your site on the Deakin web server. ii. A compressed file which contains all your files for the developed web site;
All files must be zipped and submitted through the MIBT portal by the due date
