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.

Webpage project Sunday, 1 February 2009

Create your own web site inside your Web Documents folder.

Your web site has to consist of:

  • A personal web page showing your basic personal information, interests, skills, academic and work experience. The idea here is to set up your own “Curriculum Vitae” or formal personal profile page online. This should be your main page, with links to your blog and podcasts/photo album. (1 point for contents, 2 for working links; 3 points in total)

  • A personal blog. Informal, four entries minimum (1 point). Each entry should include a multimedia element, such as photos, audio, or movies (1 point), and at least one web widget (1 point; 3 points in total).

  • Include the previous podcast project in your web site. Alternatively, you may create a photo album page with original photos taken by yourself (1 point).

The duration of this project is two weeks/six lessons.

Please refer to the iWeb Links post for more information and tutorials on how to create a web site with iWeb ’08.

For curriculum vitae formats, examples, and content guidelines, check the following links:

There’s an interesting article on spam here. It’s called “Spam War” by David Reid. It may be useful to some of you who are dealing with this topic.

Besides, http://bbcworldnews.com/click is a good resource for technology news. You can catch it on tv or online.

Jing to web page (HTML) Friday, 21 November 2008

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.

Create a web page with OpenOffice.org Sunday, 26 October 2008

Not my first option to create web pages, but it may make things easier sometimes…

Steps:

  1. Open OpenOffice.org Writer (text document)
  2. Enable and use the toolbars shown in the “OOo web options/toolbars” screenshot
  3. Create your document
  4. Save it (ODT or your favourite format) – as a backup
  5. Go to File > Save as… (screenshot: “OOo Writer Save as”) and choose HTML as shown in the “OOo Save as HTML” screenshot. I’d recommend you to save to a folder specifically created to store your webpage. Later you can upload the whole folder to your Web Documents at school.
  6. Open the HTML file with a web browser to check the results. Writer is not a web page editor per se, so don’t expect it to be a replacement for Adobe Dreamweaver!

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)
