You can find interesting HTML snippets of code (that you can insert easily in iWeb) to improve your web pages at these web sites:

If you google html code + something that you would like to add to your web page, (like a clock), you will find tutorials or information that you can copy and paste into your web page in order to achieve what you want.

It’s not 100% guaranteed, but you should try it!

Besides HTML, you may also look for Javascript code.

An easier way first, then a more detailed explanation if you check this web page for instructions on how to manually insert the HTML code required to show movies (SWF), like the ones made with Jing.

Otherwise, you could use the following instructions (summarised from this photobucket forum entry):

<embed width=”xxx” height=”yyy” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” src=”filename or URL for swf file goes here></embed>

Replacing the following text in the code above:

  • xxx is the pixel width of image
  • yyy is the pixel height of image
  • filename or URL for swf file goes here is replaced with the URL code from under your swf file in your Photobucket account.

Here are some links that will show you how to use Kompozer (the web creation software available at school). Kompozer is free, and it also has a Linux and Windows version, besides the Mac OS X one that we use at school.

There is a very handy 2 page Kompozer tutorial included in Linux Format Issue 112 (December 2008) – Get creative!

The article is “Get creative: make a website – Anybody who’s anybody has a web presence thesedays. We show you how to create a website quickly and easily with the help of WYSIWYG tool Kompozer. (Mike Saunders)
