I am currently working on my website, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for programming, posting on the internet, or any other ideas (it's still on my computer).

Also, feel free to put anything about your website here.




On friday, June 20, Apple relesed specs about the new G5 computers on their website: they should have been relesed monday, June 23 :lol:

What part of publishing a website do you need tips for? The actual HTML coding, picking a server, ...?

Hmm... What could I say here... How about... "I have the single best site on the entire internet!!!" That was pretty humble, don't you think? ;)

I guess they didn't get the memo...

MEMO: FYI! The entire universe will shut down at 5 p.m. Friday, June 20th. We will re-open for all business at 12:01 a.m. Monday, June 23rd. Thank you. (First one to Diagon Alley wins!!)

Mainly, right now, picking a server, but I may look at tips for HTML coding.

you would try www.freewebs.com which i use but then again it has its drawbacks. All free servers can be...annoying.

Well, I'd go with Brinkster (http://www.brinkster.com) or Ionichost (http://www.ionichost.com). Both are free, with lots of space. Brinkster has 30mb of space with no ads, and Ionichost has... a lot more space than Brinkster has, but with ads. My site is with Brinkster. As for HTML tips... click me.

I sugest the same hosts dark and beelz picked. Mainly for these reasons brinkster has free asp (active sever page great for making your own counters or guestbooks.) Hosting. Ionichost a.k.a. cool free pages dot com supports php (hypertext preprocessor great for custom forums) the down side to this host is ads. As for free webs they really have no scripting features and is basically a free ad free host so if I were just starting out then I'd choose free webs but using zip folders on this host is a real problem because freewebs corrupts the file and makes the download useless you download it again but that wont work all the time and most people dont even bother. For html and scripting tips take a look at these Html:http://webreference.com/html PHP:http://www.webreference.com/programming/php/index.html
ASP:http://www.webreference.com/programming/asp/index.html

For more sites on learning HTML, you can go to htmlgoodies.com or lissaexplains.com (Lissa Explains is a fun site to learn HTML from, though HTML Goodies has a lot more information.).

As for a server.... Well, I got lucky, and had my site hosted on a server for free (family friend :D) on my dad's domain (and now, I have to do is convince my parents to get my own domain name, which I'll try when I turn 15). I'd use brinkster, except if you get a lot fo hits, you'll probably run out of daily bandwidth rather quickly. Still, it's better than tolerating with banner and popup ads. As for my site... I think it rocks. :P How can I not be proud of my first site? :P Yeah, and I think my site's the single best site on the internet! :rolleyes: jk

Html goodies doesnt really help it just confuses things webreference is much better when I was a newb in html I sought help and found html goodies in a search and well lets just say it totaly messed up my thinking on html. Honestly their was to much bias on html goodies. I learned html from a book but I use webreference.com as a reference I'm sorry I just really hate html goodies.

No more tips? The webreference.com site had content I didn't really need. Not only that, but one of the things didn't work. I have one thing that kind of bugs me and it's this:
how do you change the whole content of a framed window with a hyperlink?

You have to make certain that you target your hyperlink to the name of the frame where you want the new page to appear.

<*a href="http://www.google.com" target="main"*>

If your main frame was named "main" and if you took out the asterisks. :) That should work, but my HTML is a tad rusty.

…well, not yet, but it's getting there. I have made an account on Brinkster, and am moving all of the files there. I just need to assign the home page to "index.htm" instead of "default.htm".[COLOR=skyblue]

Brinkster has asp? Really? That is quite interesting, I should make an account there.

I think coolfreepages is a good host. It has php and your own subdomain. As stolas said, it has ads. Pop-up ads. But the good thing with their ads is you can go to another web-site (in the add window) and the pop-up won't come back!

A tip for HTML: Don't make your html too messy and crowded. Try to use CSS as much as you can, and if you are already using it, keep it seperated, don't use style parameters, just the tag.

If anyone's wondering, my website is at http://www15.brinkster.com/maddsweb.

Now you know!

I must warn you…
There might be some content best viewed on a mac. The redwall division is not really one, but…

Oh, that site is evil, it knew I wasn't using a mac! ba-ba-ba-bam

Oh, am i lucky! My dandincomp is in your toolbar. Where do I go to get my award?

Edit: ooo, can I steal your idea of your comp's specs page? I'm feeling bored right now...

Edit: If you want a challenge, try to embed the riftguard font into the page
