NEWS AND NOTIFICATIONS

WHAT TO PREPARE FOR 2PM PINUP

1. Come up with a title for the Smart Space

2. Write down explanation of your Smart Space in bullet point sentences.
These have to include:
- what is your interest / focus in space
- what can be made better (what energy consumption are you focusing on)
- which processes are you combining to make a Smart Space
- how is your Smart Space designed – how does it work

3. Sketch out – illustrate your bullet points with help of graphs, diagrams, views, plans etc.
Create a story board – represent each bullet point on 1 A3 landscape sheet.
It is better to make fast hand sketches than to use the computer – it is faster.

PRESENTATION FORMAT

1. All the groups meet up at 2PM in the studio space 5th floor
2. All of the groups pin all their sketches up at the same time
3. Selected groups will present their work
4. we all discuss the issues and the designs

DELETING AND REUPLOADING IMAGES part 2

If you need to change an image, you need to delete all the images that are in the Media under that name. This means, if you have uploaded an image three times (and not deleted any yet), you need to find THREE instances of this image in the Media and delete all three. Not one, not two, but THREE.

Upload troubleshooting

1. PRINTING ISSUE:

Question:
We figured if we want to print out our pages as pdf and the big photo is upright it'll continue printing also a second page of paper. I tried to make the picture smaller, but still the little map picture moves downwards and gets cut in the middle. How should we solve this problem. Shall we still print it or is there any hint that we missed?

Answer:
Yes there was a small hint (after I was saying that all you have to do is print). When in browser, you can change the zoom of the page you are viewing. For example In Chrome browser go to the Gear button (top right corner) and zoom out for one step.

In addition, I will make the MS form a bit shorter, so that it will fit with a zoom of 100% onto one page.

2. UPLOAD IMAGE NAME:

Use lower case not UPPER CASE for all the images that you upload! Image name should be ms995599.jpg and not MS995599.jpg. If you use UPPER CASE image thumbnail will not display. Delete the UPER CASE image and re-upload.

WATCH OUT FOR lower case UPPER CASE. All the files that you upload should use lower case and not UPPER CASE

3. WRONG MS NUMBER FIELD

For their mini scenarios, group 6 put in MS 090006 but it should be just 090006. This creates a wrong Mini Scenario link wich means that the Mini Scenario will not display. Also the thumbnail will not show.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS OF FIELD CAREFUL AND FOLLOW THEM

4. REUPLOADING THE IMAGES

If you need to change the image or re-upload an image, you first have to go into MEDIA FOLDER (just under the POST folder in the administration view) and DELETE THE IMAGE ENTIRELY from the media library (click DELETE PERMANENTLY next to the image you want to delete; this option comes up next to the image when you go over it). Only than can you go back into the post and add and upload the image again.

DELETE AN IMAGE FROM THE MEDIA FOLDER FIRST ONLY THEN RE-UPLOAD

Important Upload Reminders

3. Troubleshooting session on Wednesday with Adriano and Daniel.
