Hey This week i actually worked out how to “code”, or “use code” to “make” a website. In class we “linked” two pages.
Basically I needed Text Wrangler and Cyberduck
From a website known as HTML Dog (sidenote: why so many animals involved in coding websites and software?Last time I checked dogs and ducks don’t know nuttin about makin websites) you copy what is known as a ‘generic’ code onto a new Text Wrangler document, which usually looks something like
< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/x html1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd " >
-< html> is your opening tag and < /html> is always your closing tag. Everything you want to put onto the page has to go between these two tags.
-If you want to put a heading, you need heading/ title tags which look like this: < head>< /head> and < title>< /title>
-To show where the body of the content begins put < body> < /body>.
Then to put in a link to another page, you put < a h ref= "(a url)"> then the name of the other page < / a>
Then do a link back to your first page on another text wrangler document and they are linking to each other or “pointing to each other”. Wanna see mine? No, me neither but here it is anyway. Enjoy
