Making Your Web Page More Fun


Check out the examples in Examples.
I am particularly fond of "a sample page" and A Page with Different Types of Forms.

Remember, to see the source of any web page (which shows you the html used to build the page):
* If you are working in frames (bar of commands down a side), you will need to right-click in your main page (not over an image), select This Frame and Show only this frame first.
* If (when) you don't have a frame, just right-click on the page and select View Page Source

Go ahead and try some of these in your web page. Some good tips to remember:
* Don't do too much at once. Check as you go along to make sure your page looks right.
* Save the buffer and re-load the page so you can see your changes.
* Try different things. Figure out what you like, then plan your web page.

To put a picture or other image in a file you need to put a copy of the picture (normally in jpeg format) in your public_html directory**, change the permissions appropriately
(e.g. chmod 644 mypic.jpg) and put a link to your picture in your index.html file.
For a simple example look at what I've done in my home page. For something more complex, look at the example of the CSU logo in the sample web page you saw before.

** One way to get a picture is to use the Images search type in Google to find a picture that you like. Right-click on the picture and choose Save image as. A window will pop up asking where you want the picture saved. Double-click on public_html (because you want all of your web page-related files inside of the public_html directory), change the filename to something meaningful if you wish (keep the filetype extension); and click Save. You will still need to change permissions, though.
