STEP ONE - FIND THE LINKS
Continue repeating the above with a space between every site and description until you have found the links you would like to use.
- Open up TWO (2) wordpad documents.
In one, open your biography.html.
Save the other document as links.txt
- Search for a link to use on your biography.
Need help, Do this Lesson
- When you find a link to use, copy and paste the URL on links.txt
- Underneath the URL type a description and/or word to use for the underlined link
STEP TWO - ADD LINKS TO YOUR PAGE
When finished the link will look like this on your page.
To find instructions go to Web Mastering Lessons
- Insert the following code on your biography where you would like the link to appear:
^ a href = "blank space " ^ blank space ^/a ^
Note ^ is used for tags because less than and greater than symbols are reserved for code
Add carriage returns so this code is on its own line for readability
- Copy and paste the URL from your links wordpad between the double quotes in the code:
^a href = "http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/GT/knorth/Web/WebCode.html"^blank space ^/a^
- Cut the word from your biography that will be used for the hyperlink
or copy the description from the link wordpad. Paste this before the end tag.
^a href = "http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/GT/knorth"^Web Mastering Lessons ^/a^
- To save images for links
- Right mouse link on the image, save the picture.
It will save in the Image folder as either a .gif or .jpg file
- If the file is too large, do not use. Editing images is another lesson
- To add as a link copy the image file to your disk desktop (no folder now). The link then will be:
^img src = "a:\ImageName.gif"^ Picture description ^/a^
- To add a background color in the body tag add this code: ^body bgcolor = "pink"^
- Colors can be referenced by number or name
- Go to this site to find the links: COLORS
- To add a background image in the body tag add this code: ^body background = "image.gif"^
Refer to your handout from Webmonkey
CLEAN UP YOUR FOLDERS - BE ORGANIZED
- Delect the URL's that you have already used and don't need from your links.txt file
Keep this text file open to save links as you find for future use on other web pages.
- You can also bookmark pages and copy and paste from that file.
Create your own favorites folder if you would like. But, anyone can delete this.
