This week, I have worked on finishing up two of my pages. I switched our cite’s theme to twenty seventeen because it was easier to navigate, and I figured out how to add pages with drop down menus to the top on the cite. I have almost finished the social justice page but need to figure out how to arrange pictures and text to sit next to each other, and the related organizations page is also finished with the exception of the thinglink images being added. This week I plan to meet with Ann Ogg to discuss these issues and hopefully resolve them. I also plan to go back to special collections to get some notes on the UUCA’s letter writing campaign against planned parenthood bombings and their anti-KKK agenda. By Wednesday, I hope to have the information for these two events and possibly one more on the SAC history page. I would also like to find some images for this page. If I accomplish this, my pages should be finished except the information on amendment one which I will have to arrange to get from Mark at the church.
I have figured out how to make pages on WordPress! I have also begun creating my pages which are all related to the SAC (social action committee) and their various projects. I also solved my list dilemma by creating canva images and adding thinglink tags to the organizations so that their websites can be accessed. In the comming week, I plan to begin my research on major projects and create my next page!
This week, I have been working with canva making banners and charts for our site. Our research has lead us to many papers on how to for social justice projects and various work the SAC has done. With this information, I have made two charts and compiled a list of charities helped by the UU Church. I plan to include this list on our site with links to the various organizations; however, I am having trouble creating pages on the site to fulfill this goal. This coming week, I plan to research how to create pages on wordpress and begin adding my list to the site. I will also need to come up with a way to put up my list that is not overbearing to the viewer. I am not yet sure how I will do this, but I plan to figure it out soon.
Canva is a great tool which I used to create the image below. I used a pre-made template and simply added my own information to the image. I could also easily move the colored blocks and resize them to better fit what I needed the image to look like. Canva is easy and fun to use, and I will likely use it more in the future.
