  1. While online tutorials are good, sometimes it's nice to have a person teaching you so you can ask questions and such.
  2. I couldn't agree more. I am working on learning what I can in the time that I have to do it. In the meantime, I appreciate the responses from the experts here. Sometimes It a clearer answer from the forums, than it is from a book.
  3. Ok, perhaps I jumped the gun a bit. I found the setting that allows to me set the link to open in a new window. But I am still curious, if I was not using Godaddy, is there a setting for that? Or does it default that way?
  4. Right now my site is hosted by Godaddy. I also use their website tonight package. Maybe not the best choice, but I am new, so cut me some slack. When I add a link to say FB or Twitter, it opens in the same window. Is there a piece of code to add in somewhere to have that link open in a new window? I have been looking on Godaddy, and so far have not found the answer. And to be honest, their "help" forums are horrible IMO. Thanks
  5. likes the new site set up

  6. That was actually the answer I was hoping for, but I wanted to check before I got too deep into it. It certainly will make it easier overall. Thank you
  7. I don't have anything constructive to add really, but I think the new layout is great. Great work!!
  8. Just want to ask what is the best method for linking within a site. If it makes a difference at all. If my home page is mysite.com (index.html), and I wanted to make a contact us page. When I add a Contact Us link to the home page, would I only need to have the link as contactus.html, or would I be better served using the full URL, such as <a href="http://www.mysite.com/contactus">Contact Us</a>. I hope I explained that ok. thanks
  9. It was certainly not spam. Just trying to provide as much information as possible. Thank you. margaux25, for seeing that and replying with a useful post. I would love to buy dreamweaver, but it doesn't make much, if any, sense to drop that kind of money just to compare. As far as NVU goes, so far it's been fun playing with it. I am learning a lot and it is real simple to use. I'm sure it lacks some features as other programs, but free is free right? There are some sites out there that offer tutorials for it, and those have been helpful also.
  10. ok, ok I think I got this now. It's taken some trial and error, but I think I got it. Thanks so much for the responses, I appreciate it. (and I'll be back again with more questions, soon enough)
  11. wow this has been very helpful. I am going through the CSS tutorial now. I am trying to understand something though. Perhaps I am just missing it. After I add code like this (in the right?): #wrapper { margin: 0 auto; padding: 0; } Do I also need to adjust the 0 to an actual margin amount? The tutorial shoes 15%, but I am just confused on how the code looks all together. When I think I do it correctly, I do not see it when I preview the page, which leads me to believe that I am missing something, somewhere.
  12. I am a total newbie here. Where abouts would I apply that too? I am not sure where the CSS starts or begins. Can I see that in the HTML source code?
  13. I hope I am able to explain this right... I am new to web design, and I am wondering how to create margins, or even a template to my site. I am using NVU, as it is a free web design software. When I publish my home page, it goes from one end of the browser to the other. I am wondering how to add, I guess, invisible margins, so that it does not go from end to end. Even looking at this forum, it looks like there is a 1-2 inch margin on either end. Thank you
  14. I just started using NVU, which is a free web design software. So far I like it. It's simple to use, and of course, the free part is great. Anyone else have any experience with this? What does it NOT do, in comparison to a program like Dreamweaver?
  15. Does anyone use Xara to design web pages? Or dreamweaver the only tool used these days?
  16. it's crazy how far things have come
  17. I use twitter. I mainly read what some others have posted. Sometimes it's entertaining
  18. This post has been helpful for me as well, thank you!
