In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
This updated for Muse focuses on refining some details from earlier releases. Let's take a quick look at what is new. In the last release, parallax scrolling was a major feature that was added. Let's take a look at what changes happened. On the parallax page, as I scroll you see individual page items will be moving around on the page at different speeds. This is a result of the parallax scrolling feature. In previous versions, if you wanted to access this, it would select an individual page item, and there was a widget up at the top of the screen in the Control panel that would control the various animation controls.
This is very convoluted because you had to keep going back to the Control panel between each item you wished to animate. Finally, they've moved this to its own panel. If I go to my panels I can choose Scroll Effects and I can see that I have individual controls for each item and I don't have to open or close the panel. This is a big timesaver, and it makes working with scroll motion a lot easier. Next, let's go back to the Plan view and we're going to go to Permanent Collection. On this page I have some hyperlinks that are pinned to the page.
Let's preview to see what's happening. In preview, as I start scroll down, you'll see that photography, Paintings, and Sculpture are pinned to the page. When I get to another section, such as Paintings, you'll see that the door icon will jump down to that particular section. The same thing happens when I get down to Sculpture. As I scroll back up, we have the same scenario. This also works if I click on any of these links. By clicking on Photography it'll move up and the icon will show up. And if I click on Sculpture it'll slow down and the icon will jump past each section till we get to the bottom.
The reason this is happening is because of the active state on the link. So if I select this text from that has the link and I go over to the States panel, we can see that I have an active state available. In order to make this work, you have to go to your site preferences or site properties and go to the Content tab and choose Enable Active State for Anchor Links. This way, whenever you have an anchor link inline in the page with an active state it will work automatically when you scrol to that particular section. As you can see when I go to Photography right here, at the top of screen it says Photography(Desktop) and the anchor link, and that's located right at the top of the screen.
And the Paintings anchor link will become active once we scroll to that particular part of the page. This was just a quick overview of some of the changes in his update. There are a bunch of smaller bug fixes and changes that I may not have covered in this movie. It's always a good idea to download the latest update of Muse and then export your site with a fresh export to ensure that you take advantage of all the new fixes and optimizations.
