Frequently asked questions (FAQs) are a popular aspect of any web site. This course shows how to create questions that have expandable and collapsible answers, allowing visitors to easily find the information they need. Author and jQuery expert Chris Converse shows how to build an FAQ section for your site quickly, using the tools in Dreamweaver and the code libraries in jQuery. In addition, the course demonstrates how to automatically link to a specific question, and automatically open the answer, giving you the ability to provide users with a direct answer to their question.
Now to create the graphics for our site, let's come into the Art Template folder inside of the exercise files, and let's open template_items.psd. Now this file contains all of the individual layers, so if you want to come in and customize any of the artwork, you can come in here and do that. It also includes the slices. So if we come over here under the Cropping tool, and come down to Slice Selection Tool, we can see the individual slices here. Double-clicking on an individual slice will bring up the Slice Options dialog box, and you can come in here and see the different settings that we have for each of the slices, and the Name property here, which is going to correspond to the file name that we're going to get when we export this out.
So I'm going to click OK here. Some of the graphics are going to be saved out as 24-bit PNGs; the Q&A down here for example, and the rest of these are going to be saved out as JPEGs. To export all of our files, let's come up to the File menu. Let's choose Save for Web & Devices, and this dialog box comes up. There's also Slice Selection tool on here as well, so I can click on these individual items and see all of the different the Optimization settings set for this particular slice. Hold the spacebar to get the Hand tool. I can move down, select the Q and the A, and notice that these are set to 24-bit PNGs.
