Further thoughts about organizing your web files
Organize, on paper or in your head, the structure your pages will have. In my directory, I have folders for pages depending on the content. I have a folder for all of my C++ pages, another one for my HTML lectures, another for student downloads, another for all my images.
Putting all of my images into a separate folder really helps keep me organized, but it involves a little strategy.
My first page lives at:http://CRPC/GirlTECH/myname/index.html
(The / means a directory.)
My C++ reference pages live at:
(Notice the new directory that branches from myname.)
I have an image on one of my C++ pages. Since I have my images in a separate directory, I must tell my browser to look in another directory.
<img src = "../Images/mypic.gif">
../ means to move up one level on this tree structure and find a directory called images. Then point to mypic.gif
