THERMO Spoken Here!         Information and Details

The content of this database-tag-supported functionality, reviews basic concepts of science using minimal math, vectors, calculus and physics to attain a sound preparation, understanding then to teach the fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics. Content here is an extension of HS physics to thermal physics. Every item of the site has an excerpt whereby fast BROWSING can happen. The Preview feature displays all items of a selected category of Excerpts.

Familiarize yourself, view the site options via these URLs:

♦   Table of Contents:    Our typical TOC shows study Items sequentially ordered. Items are classed as Topic or Example and each has an Excerpt, a brief abstract-like summary of its import. Browsing happens by virtue of excerpt descriptors, Categories and Tags.

♦   Preview:    Electronic sources of physics can premit quick focus but usually do not. Typical electronic coverage is book-like with a TOC (coded as pdf) whereby progress is "reading all of it" via rampant scrolling. Material here can be seen promptly. Visit this link!

♦   Preview: Examples    In the past you and I browsed books in a book store. We would pull an interesting title from the shelf, then browse by thumbing through the pages. Often (in beginning science) "examples" caught our eyes. Should you select this URL, you will see the Excerpts of all Examples addressed herein.

♦  Preview: Torrocelli    We have credited Torricelli (and his helpers) with important accomplishments. This URL will "fish-out" what about him is here. Only two entries but the second is interesting.



Site Structure

TOSH operations occur at:

  1. Desktop:   Content for TOSH is created at the desktop. Content is written in html, proofed (along with relevant images), assigned a folder-name then stored in the desktop file manager. An identical file structure is created at the server. The content items are uploaded to the server file manager.
  2. Server:  

The TOSH Index    http://thermospokenhere.com


The TOSH Table of Contents:   http://www.thermospokenhere.com/wp/00_tsh/00_toc/00_toc.html

-- 2. A PH functionality extracts data from HTML/CUSS to the populate DATABASE.

-- 3. A PH functionality for selective displays of database, to provide special views. For example:
Previews: http://thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/section_preview.php?id=Matter_in_Space_and_Time or:
Content of an Item: http://thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/content.php?id=A8000.

You can keep a HTML/CUSS section and a separate CM'S section (meaning Word press would replace the current PH/database). But if you're talking about having HTML/CUSS content, my PHP/Database content and then a separate Wordpress install too, I really wouldn't suggest that. It'll just get too messy, and it gets complicated knowing where to go to edit things.

FORUM Split-Screen Tool:

These are "entry" instructions for use of the FORUM:
http://www.thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/split.php?item=E1780&forum=3&topic=3

It creates a split screen view of these two pages:
TSH Content Item:http://www.thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/content.php?id=E1780
Forum Topic: http://thermospokenhere.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3

It has this format:
http://www.thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/split.php?item=[TSH item number]&forum=[forum number]&topic=[forum topic number]

You can change what appears in the split screen by changing the split screen URL. In this case, "item" refers to the content item you want to display within /tshdev/ ("E1780"). The "forum" ("3") and "topic" ("3") refer to the Forum URL that you want to show: http://thermospokenhere.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3 (note the "f" and the "t" in the URL)

Example:
So if you had these two links:
http://www.thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/content.php?id=A1234
http://thermospokenhere.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22

The split view link should look like this:
http://www.thermospokenhere.com/tshdev/split.php?item=A1234&forum=4&topic=22

Please note that this is an example only, and the links in the example won't work because the content item and forum topic don't exist.

Notes on Images:

When using images in your HTML files, cont.html, xrpt.html and premise.html, please make sure that your image src value comes immediately after the "<img", like this:

<img src="path/to/image.jpg" style="..." class="..." />

Please don't put anything (styling, classes or ids) between the "<img" and the "src" section, otherwise the system won't properly update the image path so it works. Styling, classes and ids can be put after the src section of the image is complete. Also, please use all lowercase "<img src", not "<IMG SRC". The uppercase version is old coding style and (while it works) is technically not valid HTML code.

If you have trouble getting the images to show up properly within the database, those are two things to check.
