Designing Your Own Website

Designing Your Own Website

Creating a quality website is essential to the success of your online business. You should review the following article to learn more about web designing and how you can create a quality site.

Css Code

Designing your own website from scratch is a good option but you will have to learn about HTML and perhaps other more complex languages. Mastering HTML should take you about six months if you are motivated and have some free time. You can easily learn thanks to online tutorials or books. Practice as much as possible to get some experience, for instance by creating a small site for fun before working on your professional project once you are more comfortable. Give yourself more time to learn and practice if you cannot create the kind of design you want and consider launching a blog or using a site-building tool to put together a very simple but professional website.

Learn how to use CSS once you are comfortable with HTML. Creating a separate CSS sheet for your design is a good way to keep your HTML pages as clean and simple as possible. Besides, you will only have to replace your CSS sheet when you want to update your design. This is also a good way to make sure all your pages look the same. Use your CSS sheet to set a color pattern for your site and determine the position of your different elements. Organize your elements in function of their importance on your HTML pages, for instance by placing your menu at the top of the page and setting its actual position with your CSS code.

Designing Website

Make sure your site can be viewed under different resolutions. Look at your site with different web browsers, resolutions and devices. Keep in mind that an increasing number of Internet users browse the web with mobile devices or with tablets. Consider launching a mobile website if you expect to get a lot of visitors who use mobile devices or tablets. Your site will be easier to display under different resolutions and devices if do not use fixed values for the size and position of your elements. Use percentages instead to keep your design flexible.

Free Time

Think about search engine optimization when designing your website. You can create an optimized design by keeping things simple. You should create clean and simple HTML pages that meet W3C standards. Check all your pages with the W3C website to make sure they do not contain any errors. Avoid using images for your background or your header since this could make your page hard to interpret for search engine spiders. If you use advanced languages such as Java Script or Flash, optimize these elements with some strong keywords. Avoid using Java Script for your menu since not all search engine spiders will be able to follow these links.

Html Pages

Following these web design tips will help you create a quality website. Do more research on web design and web development if you want to launch your own website.

      3.opera
      4.chrome

      You have two options. You cancreate another site specifically for mobile devices or youcan use media-queries.

      I would recommend using media-queries because it will keep you from having to do a lot of extra work. There is a greatntutorial on the Web Designers Wall.

      Hope that helps.

      Browsers are just the programs that allow you to look at web pages. cable-modem is a device that allows you to communicate from your workstation/computer to the outset world. There are other ways of linking to the outside instead of a cable modem, so a coble modem is not “required” to browse. You do need a program that lets you interact with outside web pages, though, in order to browse.

      That is, you need an application (a software) in order to browse. You also need a hardware link to the outside in order to browse anything that isn’t in your home network, but you may be able browse your intranet at work without an external hardware link, and you do not require a cable-modem specifically, as other hardware can serve the same purpose.

    Is Web Design 1 Online Easy? I want to take Web Design 1 online. I may want to go to college for internet marketing and I feel like it would be good for this. Is it fun, boring, hard? Opinions please! I am going into 10th grade next year.

      Web design 1 is easy, but I recommend using word press. Word Press is one of the most popular blogging tools available. But what many people don't know is that it is a powerful Content Management System that can be used for more than just blogging. With Word Press you can build a blog, a website, or both. This is the first article in a series where we'll explore why Word Press is a good choice for small business websites, and how to install, configure and use it for your small business.

      Fast forward to today, and now we have Word Press - an amazingly powerful content management system that is FREE. And it has a lot of power under the hood for a small or medium business looking for an easy way to manage their web site.

      Word Press was designed as a platform for blogging, but you don't have to use it as a blogging tool. With a few tweaks it can be used to run your website, with or without a blog. The fact that Word Press was designed as a blogging platform gives it some compelling advantages.

      It is optimized for easily publishing and changing content. And getting good search engine rankings requires fresh, unique content. You need a system that does not get in your way when you want to update your website with a new article or newsletter.

    Generating Html Pages? Say we have an standard html form that takes input from the user.
    there are standard text fields, checkboxes etc..
    Now using this info how does one generate a permanent (read-only) html page that is then shown to the user ? By ‘permanent’ i mean the webpage created doesn’t get deleted , it stays on the internets.

    Reading around , it seems this can be done using a bit of server side php. Is that the easiest way of doing this ? if so how ?

    There won’t be any database involved , this is for a very simple site.

    Just take the html form data and create an .html page (which is shown to the user) .

    I hope the solution is simple ?

    Thanks

      HTML neither receives nor outputs/generates user-specific web content.

      It is a mark-up language ONLY.

      You need server side programming to interpret and generate client side input.

      That is what PHP is for.

      In order to “store” that form information, you need a database, like MySQL.

      You would construct the Form in HTML using form sets, and field tags, and give the form an PHP action by linking it to a php document.

      The php imports the user inputs, handles the data, and generates the form return data on the fly.

      To see what I mean, check out a contact form I have set up on my site here:

      http://www.dreamingpanda.com/contact.html

      You can View Source on the page to see how the form was set up, and how the php action is linked. When you enter your info, the PHP generates an HTML return that sends you back a confirmation of receipt with the info you sent.

      Additionally, it writes the input to a text file and stores it remotely on the host for me to view at a later date.

    Which Company Makes The Highest Quality Puerh Tea? I am getting into the benefits of Puerh tea. I know the big older tree leaves can be more expensive. I’m still confused on which companies make the best or high quality puerh and which websites to buy it from. My current puerh that I have now, I can brew up to 3 times before I lose the flavor. I spent about $60 for 16 oz of loose leaves. I’m reading in other websites that the higher quality leaves, you can brew up to 6 to 10 times. Which company would that be and do you know the region of China?

    Thanks.

      Quality of the tea can be determined through inspecting the dried leaves, the tea liquor, or the spent tea leaves. The “true” quality of a specific batch of pu’er can ultimately only be revealed when the tea is brewed and tasted. Although, not concrete and sometimes dependent on preference, there are several general indicators of quality:
      Dried tea: There should be a lack of twigs, extraneous matter and white or dark mold spots on the surface of the compressed pu’er. The leaves should ideally be whole, visually distinct, and not appear muddy. The leaves may be dry and fragile, but not powdery. Good tea should be quite fragrant, even when dry. Good pressed pu’er often have a matte sheen on the surface of the cake, though this is not necessarily a sole indicator of quality
      Liquor: The tea liquor of both raw and ripe pu’er should never appear cloudy. Well-aged raw pu’er and well-crafted ripe pu’er tea may produce a dark reddish liquor, reminiscent of a dried jujube, but in either case the liquor should not be opaque, “muddy,” or black in colour. The flavours of pu’er liquors should persist and be revealed throughout separate or subsequent infusions, and never abruptly disappear, since this could be the sign of added flavorants. Young raw Puerh:The ideal liquors should be aromatic with a light but distinct odours of camphor, rich herbal notes like Chinese medicine, fragrance floral notes, hints of dried fruit aromas such as preserved plums, and should exhibit only some grassy notes to the likes of fresh sencha. Young raw pu’er may sometimes be quite bitter and astringent, but should also exhibit a pleasant mouthfeel and “sweet” aftertaste, referred to as g?n (?) and h?ig?n(??).
      Aged raw Puerh: Aged pu’er should never smell moldy, musty, or strongly fungal, though some pu’er drinkers consider these smells to be unoffensive or even enjoyable. The smell of aged pu’er may vary, with an “aged” but not “stuffy” odour. The taste of aged raw pu’er or ripe pu’er should be smooth, with slight hints of bitterness, and lack a biting astringency or any off-sour tastes. The element of taste is an important indicator of aged pu’er quality, the texture should be rich and thick and should have very distinct g?n (?) and h?ig?n(??) on the tongue and cheeks, which together induces salivation and leaves a “feeling” in the back of the throat.

      Spent tea: Whole leaves and leaf bud systems should be easily seen and picked out of the wet spent tea, with a limited amount of broken fragments. Twigs, and the fruits of the tea plant should not be found in the spent tea leaves, however animal (and human) hair, strings, rice grains and chaff may occasionally be included in the tea[citation needed]. The leaves should not crumble when rubbed, and with ripened pu’er, it should not resemble compost. Aged raw pu’er should have leaves that unfurl when brewed while leaves of most ripened pu’er will generally remain closed.

      A Web Browser has Four major parts

      1. A Request manager that can handle Get, Response, Request, etc
      2. An HTML parser that includes a document interface, script interface, DTD compliance parser and DOM manager.
      3. User Interface including the menus, address bar, and motion gestures (back, forward, home)
      4. The Cache or memory manager

      Additional parts that all modern Browsers possess
      5. Download manager (this helps converts http based requests into separate streams for IO)
      6. Browser level error processing
      7. Handicap/International facilities

      If you’re looking for a requirements doc add these to the parser:
      -Text parser should be able to accept DTD’s for validation and interpretation and should cache common DTD’s for speed of processing.
      -Document module should be forgiving of the most common errors in html
      -CSS support

    How Do I Rite A Html Web Page? How do i get web space to rite a html web page? and then how do i rite a html web page in notepad?
    i don’t know any thing.

      >how do i get web space to rite a html web page?

      You can make HTML pages on your computer and access them from your computer using your browser (you don’t even have to be connected to the Internet), but no one else would be able to see it. To get a page where other people can see it, there are various websites that host pages for free (and even more that host for a price). Yahoo has their own free page hosting service called GeoCities, which you can find here:
      http://geocities.yahoo.com/
      Another good site is freewebs.com:
      http://members.freewebs.com/

      >and then how do i rite a html web page in notepad?

      HTML is very complicated, and with various other addon languages such as CSS and Javascript it gets far more complicated still. However, I know some amount of HTML, so I can give you the basics.

      Open Notepad. You will be presented with a new document. Go to File/Save as, switch the file type from ‘text file’ to ‘all files’ and for the name, enter the desired name of your file followed by ‘.html’ (without the quotes, and that must be the last thing in the name, do NOT leave the default ‘.txt’ in place). You can save it any place you would save any other files, such as in My Documents or some personal folder or whatever. Now, whenever you press Control+S, it will save under HTML format.

      Okay, now what to put in the file. On the most basic level, HTML has three sections: The HTML section, the head section, and the body section. The HTML section contains absolutely everything you’re going to put in your file. The head section contains various page information such as the title, any keywords you might want, various scripts and CSS styles, etc. The body section contains most of what is actually going to appear on the page, and is usually by far the largest section. Each of these sections is delimited by HTML tags, which are little strings of text surrounded by < and > (some tags also have opening tags, which are just like that, and also closing tags, which are surrounded by ; closing tags are the ‘end’ of that particular tag, for tags that can contain things that aren’t tag properties). So your file will start by looking like this:






      This will not display anything when you open it using your browser, but it is a necessary hierarchy you will use on all simple web pages. You can how add other things to the page, for example let’s say you want the page to say ‘asdf’. In the ‘body’ section (that is to say between the tag and the tag), put ‘asdf’. If you save and then open the file with your browser (or refresh if you’re already on the file), you will see ‘asdf’ in black on a white background and in whatever your default font is (you haven’t yet specified a font, remember).

      Now, at that point when you open your file the title on the top of your browser window will say the name of the file complete with the extension. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. A title can be made to replace this file name. Titles are delimited by (surprise!) and tags, which MUST be placed in the head section. Let’s say you want the title to read ‘my site’ and the page to read ‘asdf’. You would do that like this:



      my site


      asdf

      Tags can also have properties. For example, if you wanted your ‘asdf’ to appear in Comic Sans MS (the default font is probably Arial or Times New Roman) and in blue, you can put tags around it, like this:

      asdf

      Put that in the body section and you will be able to see ‘asdf’ in Comic Sans MS and colored blue. Note that each tag property uses the form ‘property=value’, in which the value is often (but not always) in quote marks, and all properties are spaced out by spaces. So if you had an image called ‘tree.jpg’ that you wanted on your page, here are the WRONG ways to use tag properties:



      Here is the RIGHT way:

      So, that’s a quick runover of the basic syntax and terminology. If you want to learn more about hand coding, you can go here:
