Lesson 2: Borrow a Page Layout

You need a design layout. I recommend borrowing from a page library, until you get the hang of how it all works. To start HTML in the very beginning is cumbersome. We are going to launch you forward to about a seasoned apprentice. The link below is going to take you to a site where you can see a basic layout of the page you want. Ignore whatever colors and pictures are already on these pages, and try to imagine your stuff there. Choose a design that looks right for you, and click on the appropriate link for the script. For now, I wouldn't use the scripts that contain frames until you understand a little but more about HTML. A notepad should pop up with the script you want, Select-All, Copy and Paste that to the "template" from Lesson 1.

If all goes well you be able to move on to lesson three, now here's the link to go and get the scripts:

Great idea but newbies might not be the neediest users. Those who start fiddling around with the templates already know HTML well (and even CSS) for what seems a simple task.

So we go off and find a blog, modify at will, looks OK at home, but doesn't work on blogger. In my case, everything except the post looks fine. The post doesn't post.

A friend finally clued me into the <$blogspot$> tags.And I'm fiddling.
But how about be a guide to what each of them does? Is it somewhere on blogspot? Last time I looked, which was months ago and more than once, there was just blah blah about the paragraph tag and the usual. Also should be some information about what you shouldn't do with them. I hadn't come across them, of course, when trying to make a regular website, so is it so farfetched to see something like <$blogtitle$> and conclude that you're supposed to put the title of your blog between either brackets or the dollar signs? I can't be the only one!

I don't know if what I am about to say is going to be relvant to what you said, but if I get the idea right, here is my response:

I initially thought of this blog as an "html" trick site where one could go for easy reference. After consulting with a few friends that build websites for a living (they know what's what) I decided that if I was going to start something, I should start it from the beginning and include everyone that might come across these pages. Eventually this blog will be aimed more towards the seasoned blogger, but in the event that a beginner should happen upon the site, they will be able to reference it from a beginners point of view. I never try to write anything in my posts that wouldn't be comprehendable to even the most basic "web-user." Either way, I hope you have fun, and try to use at least one of my little tricks, if you haven't already.

Thanks for commenting!
