Hello.

Please take a minute or two to familiarise yourself with your new site. We’ve taken the liberty to pre-populate your site with certain information we think you should know: how images & galleries work, getting to grips with grids & layout, touching base with navigation & typography and a quick primer about text (and formatting text) - all the little details that in conjunction make up a modern website. This ‘default’ content can easily be edited, deleted or re-purposed - it’s now your site after-all.

What is a Network Operations Center?

A network operations center (NOC) provides an integral element of any organization that uses networked systems of any type. An organization may use in-house personnel or outsource its network operations center (NOC).

Text & Typography

We use a text-to-HTML conversion tool - a filter - that allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which is converted it to structurally valid HTML for rendering on the web.

In a nutshell it means you use certain characters as formatting commands and you place these characters amongst your text to create certain effects (bolding text) and functionality (linking text).


E.g. headings

You can easily apply the full range of headers (h2 to h6) as follows:

# big heading
## smaller heading
##### smallest heading

E.g. formatting text

Formatting text - bolding text, italicizing text, or even striking text is quite simple. Simply use the basic formatting rules you’ve just seen and surround your text with the appropriate characters.


Typography

We utilise and deploy percentage-based text-sizing, popular font-stacks & web-safe fonts across all our sites. This means that your site is legible and readable from the get-go, but still customisable according to your specifications and personal taste.

Images & Galleries

There are two ways of displaying images in your site: ‘inline’ with the rest of your content, or in sortable collections in a dedicated ‘photo section’ of their own.


Inline images

Images attached to content appear ‘inline’; in other words in the content you place them. The image below has been placed just below this paragraph and is sized automatically according to the width of the container it’s placed in.

That means images look great no matter where you put them. No need to ‘size down’ anything - in fact we recommend uploading your images large enough to cater for higher resolutions.


Inline galleries & slide-shows

If multiple images are attached to content it is possible to ‘string’ these images together into an inline gallery or slideshow. It couldn’t be simpler or easier.


Collections of images

Images can also be placed in order-able collections inside a photo section - a slightly easier way to manage large sets of images as all images are thumb-nailed and placed automatically according to the dimensions of the current skin.
