Once upon a time, a long long time ago I created a web site for the toy Furby based upon the things my five children and I discovered about the doll.
This site was created by learning HTML and doing all coding by hand.
The history of the site is mentioned on some web pages today, (google "Furbyinfo.com" for details.
Now here we are some 11 years later and I find myself once again learning HTML and am confused by the plethora of acronyms, style sheets, java scripts, and so on. I purchased Dreamweaver 5 and I was hoping this would make my journey down the HTML memory lane much easier but in fact, I am not finding this to be true.
So I bought a book "Sams teach yourself Dreamweaver CS5" in 24 hours... Well I have been reading it for 3 weeks now Sam and I ain't getting much better...
So I bought another book, "Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Bible" Yeah, it's a lot like reading the Real Thing, In the book of Joeseph Lowery Chapter 3 verse 17 I am sure I might find the knowledge I seek, but today, I can't seem to fix what I thought should be easy.
Specifically I thought CSS was a way to define something "site wide" so that you only have to edit the content and not the colors, fonts, etc...
Well I must be doing something wrong because none of my 7 or 8 pages are uniform.
Now too, depending on the type of browser viewing my site you get my right sidebar appearing down below my left sidebar.
If I add a page and put its link on the index page of my site, I find I have to manually add the link on the left nave bar to every page.
It is tedious, and not intuitive at all.
My email address is email@example.com if anyone would care to mentor me perhaps we could trade training for content writing.
I am an excellent writer and given a subject I can fill pages with informative words designed to keep the attention of a reader, but for the life of me I can't seem to make my website sexy.
