Website folder

Website folders provide a convenient way to create and manage a miniature website inside BSCW. Apart from the HTML documents (“pages”) making up the contents of the website, a website folder has three special documents: the home page that is shown when you click on a website folder’s icon or name, the layout page that serves as the standard framework for all other HTML documents of the website folder, thus ensuring a consistent layout of all pages in a website folder, and finally the style definition, a style sheet that defines e.g. the colours and fonts of the HTML elements used in the pages of the website folder.

Additionally, website folders have a built-in element system with a wiki-like [element] syntax, allowing you to include BSCW system features into the pages of a website folder, e.g. a page’s last modification date, links for editing the page, a display of the page history or even whole action menus.
