Instructions for Team 3 ICA Website

Page history last edited by WCORSE@WISMAIL.NET 8 years, 6 months ago Saved with comment



Google Main Site




Overview -

The main site links to all the features and information that support the ICA Global Conference. The site is designed to be the entryway for new users, from where site visitors can navigate to theme-specific information as well as general conference information. From this main site users can access the following features:

  • Google+: for social network-like updates and information feeds.
    • Google Hangouts: within Google+, this feature offers live video conferencing with up to 10 participants.
  • Blogger: open conversation on theme-specific articles posted by Theme Chairs.
  • Google Docs: collaborative authoring tool to produce text documents.


Uploading Documents to the Google Site -

  1. Note: only site Administrators are allowed to upload and remove documents.  
  2. Documents will only appear on the page they are uploaded; this allows for theme-specific information. 
  3. As a site Administrator, navigate to the bottom of the page.
  4. This instructional video shows how to upload, view, and delete a file: http://screencast.com/t/IrQc90LU
  5. There is no set file upload quantity limit, though there is a 12MB limit across the entire site (may vary depending on the file types being uploaded).
  6. Google Sites tracks the version history of the uploaded files. This is convenient.
  7. Any site visitor is able to download the files.


Picasa Image Uploads -

  1. Note: ANY visitor to the site is able to upload images to the slideshow found on each of the Theme pages.
  2. Restrictions can be edited based on the Picasa account used to create the image slideshows.
  3. Current settings have the ICA Test Account Galleries as Public to all.
  4. Only the Admin and the user who uploaded the photo can remove images.
  5. Follow this video to see the process of adding and removing images from theme slideshows:  http://screencast.com/t/C26lxNnDDjkk
  6. Admin: in order to set up the Picasa web albums, you will need to download Picasa to your computer. Without this download you will only be able to upload individual images. 
  7. The current images on the site are tiny icon images, which is why they appear so small. Please do not be alarmed, this was done for testing purposes only. Assuming the majority of images uploaded to the site will be larger than 200 x 200 pixels, the images will display nicely.
