Yii – How to add static pages

Just create the page you want under protected/views/site/pages/ folder. Remember that the name you give the file is the name with which you will browse the page.
For example, if, you create a page termsofservice.php in the pages folder you will browse the page like this:
http://www.mydomain.com/index.php/site/page?view=termsofservice

To create a link to the static page:

Yii::app()->createUrl('/site/page', array('view'=>'termsofservice'));

}

- (void)setLineCap:(CGLineCap)lineCap {
	if (self.lineCap != lineCap) {

Adding Stroke, Shadow, Reflection and Opacity to an Image in Keynote

In keynote software, we will be able to stroke, apply shadow or reflection or opacity to an image. For this, follow these steps :

1. Click on the image.

2. Open Inspector by clicking the inspector button on the toolbar.

3. Go to Graphic tab of the image inspector.

4. Here you will see different sections for chafing the stroke, shadow, reflection and opacity. Use these options to implement those items.

You can see that what ever change you are making on the inspector is reflected simultaneously in the object.
