How to Use the
"Virtual Classroom" Page Skeleton for National Jewish Research Ctr.

Revised 07-Nov-01 (tw) Added javascript_file param so javascript can be included in page <HEAD>
   "    23-Jan-02 (tw) Added logo_file param so can use different colored logo graphics.
   "    01-Feb-02 (tw) Added check for "Application" version of all params, so they can be
                       set once in application.cfm.  For example, in application.cfm in the
                       home dir of the pages, put:
                       <cfapplication name="unique name for the application">
                       <cfset Application.unit_title = "Bilgewater">
                       <cfset Application.logo_file = "SummerNJCLogo.gif">
                       Also added enough default information to skel so that
                       CF_SKEL can be called without any params and will still produce a page.
                       
                       Also added param, show_defs.
   "    18-Jul-02 (tw) Changes for use in custom apps like the Study Data Manager.
                       Logo can come from different place if https page.
                       Contents con file can be on diff dir from skel - allows different apps to
                          share the same programming.
                       prev_page can be "javascript:history.back();", to return to previously visited page -
                          avoids need to pass params back to prev_page No code was changed, is just a new
                          way of using skel
=========================================================================================
<CF_SKEL home_page = Where to go for Home button, a file name

        resource_name = A code designating a large area of the server, typically one per
                        customer = [ Admin |  ProfEd ... etc]  

        page_number_of = Shows which page of how many, like "1 of 2"

        next_page = File name of next page - where we go after a [Next] or [Submit] 
                    button.  Null string if none.     

        prev_page = File name of previous page in a sequence. [Prev] button goes there.
                    Null string if none.       

        message_box = String which will display in box, lower-left corner of page  

        color_scheme = Name of the color scheme.  Values are in schema.cfm    

        right_width = Width in pixels of the right-hand part of the page , default = 500

        logo_width = Width in pixels of the logo, upper left, and of the left-hand
                     menu, if menu_file below has a value.  Default = 100

        logo_file   = File name of logo graphic, which must be an image on /pix (or on
                      /sec/pix if page is https).  If missing 
                      it defaults to NJC colors.  Width of graphic should match logo_width.   
                      *Width of the entire page = logo_width + right_width

        menu_file = File name containing html for left-hand menu. Assumes file is on same dir

                          stylesheet file to be link'ed in the page HEAD    

        collect_responses = ["NO", "STD", ""]
                            If NO, then no form on page, and if there is a next_page,
                                it will be reached via [Next] button.
                            If STD, then standard code is included to capture input from
                                all form fields into the userresponse table, standard 
                                database.  The form fields will be found in the 
                                contents_file.  Once the form is submitted, and data sent to
                                the database, then the browser is asked to show next_page.
                            If the file name of a script, then the output of any form that 
                                appears on contents_file will be processed by said script
                                and that script will be responsible for which page the
                                browser shows next.

        show_defs = [TRUE, FALSE]  Default is TRUE.  Note that values have no quotes 
                    around them - they are keywords, not strings.  FALSE
                    turns off display of the button for definitions list in the trailer.
