Marieclassof86 says, just kidding Cub_2 says, well, I am not gonna start the upload stuff right away.. there are a few more links I want to teack Cub_2 says, or teach lookin_back_2 says, I have mine uploaded Cub_2 says, fine lookin_back_2 says, Michigan anyway, Indiana needs more work Cub_2 says, lets open the state pages in notepad Cub_2 says, I want to show you the DIV tag first Cub_2 says, DIV stands for Divison Cub_2 says, and allows you to specify spacings for a section of your page... Cub_2 says, in your file, I want you to change the first < CENTER > tag to Cub_2 says, < DIV align="center" > Cub_2 says, then go to the /CENTER tag and change it to /DIV Cub_2 says, when you look at your page, it should look no different Cub_2 says, than with the CENTER tag vickyal_124 says, . Cub_2 says, CENTER is actually a shorthand version of the DIV Align=center Cub_2 says, it really is up to you which you want to use... but I want you to know there is another way Cub_2 says, I would not be surprised to see them add attributes to the DIV down the road Cub_2 says, so you can set area defaults within the page, like color, etc... Cub_2 says, anyone got any questions other than why I would just confuse you all ladyfish86 says, yes ladyfish86 says, why use this tag instead? Cub_2 says, personal preference... ladyfish86 says, ok Cub_2 says, I like the idea of using a division of the page and looking at it as a section of the page Cub_2 says, but at this point, I dont know if one is any better than the other Cub_2 says, moving on.. Cub_2 says, in your page, you should have your index at the top of the page centered Cub_2 says, and when you click on one of the links, you jump to a place in your same document Cub_2 says, and then you should have a return to index link that jumps you back up Cub_2 says, after your index, before the first link, you should have an image of the club logo Cub_2 says, does anyone not have this? vickyal_124 says, ME angelbear_s says, question RH Cub_2 says, vicky, what do you have? Cub_2 says, or what part of this dont you have vickyal_124 says, i have the return to index at each group vickyal_124 says, but not the index centred Cub_2 says, was it centered before the DIV tag replaced the CENTER tag? Cub_2 says, angel, your question? angelbear_s says, where do you want the state facts then - i have them between the logo and "Basic...." vickyal_124 says, well the catagories are centred Cub_2 says, that works for me angelbear_s says, ok ty vickyal_124 says, but they dont link to anything vickyal_124 says, also dont have the catagories vickyal_124 says, by them selves vickyal_124 says, so can just to section angelbear_s says, State facts not centered of course vickyal_124 says, like in example page Cub_2 says, hhmmmmm Cub_2 says, we will get back to that vicky Cub_2 says, I want to teach you the P tag vickyal_124 says, k Cub_2 says, P is Paragraph Cub_2 says, the P tag is like 2 BR tags together Cub_2 says, it starts a new line, plus adds a line space Cub_2 says, the P tag, unlike the BR tag, can have a closing tag /P Cub_2 says, the closing tag will also start a new line and add a line space Cub_2 says, take out your BR tags after your last index rows Cub_2 says, you may have one or two of them if you havent already used a P Cub_2 says, add a P tag there instead Cub_2 says, then preview you page Cub_2 says, your even vickyal_124 says, you coverd p last week so all mines been changed to p Cub_2 says, did I? vickyal_124 says, yes vickyal_124 says, or least started to angelbear_s says, RH Cub_2 says, angel? angelbear_s says, all br tags in index? angelbear_s says, or just last one? Cub_2 says, no Cub_2 says, just those after the last one and before the next thing on your page angelbear_s says, change < BR > to P? Cub_2 says, I would make sure the P is on a line by itself angelbear_s says, < P > Cub_2 says, but yes angelbear_s says, ok angelbear_s says, before or after /DIV angelbear_s says, after right? Cub_2 says, after is where I would put it... angelbear_s says, it put a little space between line and logo - right? Cub_2 says, does everyone see the difference with the P instead of the BR Cub_2 says, yes angel angelbear_s says, ty ladyfish86 says, no not really Cub_2 says, lady, yours may be different because of the table ladyfish86 says, ok angelbear_s says, table? Cub_2 says, you can try changing the P back to BR and see if there is a difference Cub_2 says, you didnt hear that angel angelbear_s says, lol Cub_2 says, how many of you have state info next? angelbear_s says, i do after logo lookin_back_2 is back. lookin_back_2 says, I do Cub_2 says, who has the logo above the state info? angelbear_s says, me ladyfish86 says, me lookin_back_2 says, me Cub_2 says, Not on the file I saw ladyfish ladyfish86 says, ok i looked at it wrong angelbear_s says, i have the logo between the index and state facts - logo centered, state facts on left ladyfish86 says, mine is above the categories index Cub_2 says, Marie, do you have a preference for the library? Marieclassof86 says, what? Marieclassof86 is back. Marieclassof86 says, of the logo angelbear_s says, do you mean like logo on the bottom? Cub_2 says, yes angelbear_s says, i liked how it looked on marie's page Cub_2 says, I like the idea of having the link to the library at the top near the index Marieclassof86 says, I only have the logo on this one and the VA page I believe...I like it at the bottom Cub_2 says, I guess I dont care Cub_2 says, either way as long as the image is there and is a link to the library angelbear_s says, you tell us what you want Cub_2 says, I am wishy washy tonight... Marieclassof86 says, Its up to you Kent...I really don't care Cub_2 says, leave it where you have it for now... Cub_2 says, does everyone understand the difference between the P and BR tags? vickyal_124 is back. angelbear_s says, yes lookin_back_2 says, y vickyal_124 says, yea Cub_2 says, ok... lets move on to something that makes a difference... Cub_2 says, everyone go to the basic links section of their page Cub_2 says, We are going to learn how to do lists... Cub_2 says, there are 2 types of lists... Unordered and Ordered Cub_2 says, an Unordered list puts a dot in front of the list item Cub_2 says, an Ordered list puts a number in front of each list item Cub_2 says, both types of list require 2 different tags... Cub_2 says, the first is the list tag UL=Unordered OL=Ordered Cub_2 says, I want everyone to add an Ordered List just above their first link Cub_2 says, < OL > Cub_2 says, the second tag you need for lists is the List Item or LI tag Cub_2 says, before each of your links in the basic section, add a < LI > tag Cub_2 says, after the last link, add a closing OL tag Cub_2 says, last link of your basic section that is before the return to index Cub_2 says, does everyone see that? angelbear_s says, yes Cub_2 says, oops Cub_2 says, you should see numbers in front of your links and the links should be indented slightly angelbear_s says, y vickyal_124 says, yep angelbear_s says, hi brbrooks Cub_2 says, hi brb ladyfish86 says, hi br vickyal_124 says, hi brb Marieclassof86 says, Hey Betty Cub_2 says, ok, now add the attribute START=3 to the opening list tag brbrooks99 says, HI brbrooks99 says, sorry Cub_2 says, does everyone see what the start attribute did? vickyal_124 says, where does it go lol Cub_2 says, it is part of the opening OL tag... ladyfish86 says, yes i do angelbear_s says, no vickyal_124 says, k i see vickyal_124 says, it moved #3 to top of list Cub_2 says, what number does your list start with angel? angelbear_s says, 1 Cub_2 says, and where did you put the start=3? angelbear_s says, before the center at the begin of the line for basic.... Cub_2 says, the start is an Attribute of the OL tag, not a tag itself angelbear_s says, ugh Cub_2 says, can anyone think of a reason why you would use the start attribute? angelbear_s says, ok it skipped 1 and 2 angelbear_s says, no Cub_2 says, how about if you start listing things... Cub_2 says, and you want to add something to explain something Cub_2 says, but make it appear like you are continuing the list afterward Cub_2 says, It's a stretch, but thats about all I can think of using it for angelbear_s says, that makes sense Cub_2 says, when would you want to use an ordered list as opposed to an unordered list? Cub_2 says, which would you use most often? angelbear_s says, unordered - i think Cub_2 says, is anyone beside angel and I here? angelbear_s says, lol vickyal_124 says, here lookin_back_2 says, I'm here ladyfish86 says, im here Marieclassof86 says, I'm sorta here Cub_2 says, when would you use an ordered list instead of a unordered? lookin_back_2 says, I would use an ordered list for listing steps to complete a project lookin_back_2 says, Do this first this next ect. ladyfish86 says, i agree vickyal_124 says, me2 Cub_2 says, exactly angelbear_s says, good answer - i was thinking receipes Marieclassof86 says, when you are keeping track of the number of things on the list lookin_back_2 says, or if they need to be done in a certain order Cub_2 says, would you use the start attribute in an unordered list? angelbear_s says, no lookin_back_2 says, no ladyfish86 says, no vickyal_124 says, no Cub_2 says, so lets change our list back to unordered Cub_2 says, k, who has not figured out how to upload their pages to rootsweb? angelbear_s says, me ladyfish86 says, me vickyal_124 says, me Cub_2 says, if you have, you dont need to stick around for this but you are welcome to lookin_back_2 says, OK cub, I think I'll go eat dinner Cub_2 says, switch to your display page.. .and go to http://freepage.rootsweb.com lookin_back_2 says, Nite everyone Cub_2 says, bye lookin vickyal_124 says, ugg getin page cant be displayed angelbear_s says, that did not come up Cub_2 says, switch to your display page.. .and go to http://freepages.rootsweb.com Cub_2 says, try that angelbear_s says, ok vickyal_124 says, ok i see the trouble someone forgot the S the first time vickyal_124 says, on freepages Cub_2 says, there are 3 links after the freepages banner Cub_2 says, the bottom one says Upload your pages... angelbear_s says, i see it vickyal_124 says, yep Cub_2 says, click it ladyfish86 says, yep Cub_2 says, enter your rootsweb userid and password angelbear_s says, wait - i don't have all my "lists" done Cub_2 says, its ok angel, you can reload it later angelbear_s says, phew Cub_2 says, once you log in it will ask you for the community angelbear_s says, yes Cub_2 says, if you click on the down arrow by that drop down box, you will see a whole bunch of options Cub_2 says, select genealogy Cub_2 says, make sure the html, jpg, gif and other extensions are all checked Cub_2 says, then click enter file manager button Cub_2 says, everyone get to their directory listing? angelbear_s says, is that what this is? vickyal_124 says, k got it Cub_2 says, it is where you files will be listed Cub_2 says, lets upload your state page Cub_2 says, you can either click the link at the top of the page that says "here" vickyal_124 says, there are 2 that say here Cub_2 says, or scroll down the page until you see the file upload utility Cub_2 says, ok, the one that says upload your pages here Cub_2 says, anyone not at the file upload utility? ladyfish86 says, i am Cub_2 says, kewl.. now I want you to close your notepad with your state page vickyal_124 says, im there angelbear_s says, hold on Cub_2 hanging on to the keyboard angelbear_s says, ok i see the file upload utility Cub_2 says, now, you see where it says convert file names to lower case is checked right? ladyfish86 says, yes vickyal_124 says, yes Cub_2 says, you are actually connected to a UNIX computer here.. and UNIX computers are case sensitive Cub_2 says, your windows is not Cub_2 says, so you could have a page on your computer named STATES.HTML Cub_2 says, with this box checked, the page will be saved as states.html Cub_2 says, it makes it a bit easier to use lower case for your file names Cub_2 says, cause people wont have to remember what is and is not caps Cub_2 says, you should have 4 boxes with BROWSE buttons next to them ladyfish86 says, yep angelbear_s says, yes vickyal_124 says, y Cub_2 says, then a line that says send this many files at once Cub_2 says, and in the box there is a 4 ladyfish86 says, yes vickyal_124 says, y Cub_2 says, change the 4 to a 2 then click Refresh ladyfish86 says, done Cub_2 says, you will have to go back to your file upload utility vickyal_124 says, k angelbear_s says, k Cub_2 says, and you should see just 2 browse boxes ladyfish86 says, yes angelbear_s says, y Cub_2 says, you can change the number of files that you upload at one time so you dont have to repeat the send command Cub_2 says, how many files do you need to upload for your state pages to look right? angelbear_s says, is the background a sep line item Cub_2 says, each line is one file...
