re: Easy HTML writer suggestions


Have you got any kind of FTP software? Filezilla is free.

If all the images are the same size, you can actually do it in a word processing program. Replace the urls for the images (you can host yours on imgur, or somewhere). The HTML image code will say "src:" at the beginning. Simply cut-and-paste the new image url. Some site use "site root" code for the images, which tells the browser to assume the domain for each image file is the same as the site is located on and adds the folder and file location, like so "/images/jahel.jpg." In that case, you'd have to replace it with a full url.

Help?

ETA: The site you're ripping probably has an associated CSS file that you need to copy and host on your own site, too. The link to that will need to be altered in your page HTML, too. If you don't do that, they may change the file on their server and you're page will be a collection of text and pictures in sequential order.

Once you know a few things about code, it's not hard, but until you memorize that, it's a little like deciphering your Little Annie Secret Decoder ring.

quote:

I can use their software to make a page off templates that they provide.


That'll make a pretty vanilla webpage where you substitute their text and images for theirs.

quote:

I know I'm out of my element, but I should be able to figure this crap out along the way.


My work gave me a copy of Dreamweaver, some server space, and told me to get it done. It took me about a month to figure it out. Dreamweaver is Adobe, like Photoshop, and none of their stuff is intuitive, but you'd be surprised what you can find with a Google search.

quote:

So just copy the text and upload with filezila?

call CService and get them to allow for my content and not just their template.



Filezilla is kind of like UPS - it delivers the content to the server. GoDaddy should have given you a url for your server location, username, and password. That info is entered into Filezilla and you then use the program to put files on the server or take them off.

A program like Dreamweaver gives you a split screen, where you can see your html code and the way the page looks all on one screen. It also has its own ftp client built in. Once you learn a few simple coding techniques, though, I bet one of the freeware editors off c-net would work.

If all you want to do is replace text and images, that shouldn't be too hard and you can literally do that with Word. So long as it's not porn (copy of Dreamweaver and computer are owned by employer) and not completely time consuming, I can help you make the edits.

Yep, that's a good point. HTML doesn't like the curly quotation marks and double spaces in Word. There's a special character set for them in HTML.

People use Word to edit HTML? You can't use a word processor to edit any kind of code, including HTML. Has to be a plain text editor.






please don't mention Word's export as web page feature

The updated version of Word does have the function, but like you note in the ps, creates more problems than it solves. I maintain our business webpage and have to deal with it all the time. Regardless of how many times you tell people to send their text in Notepad, they still send in Word.

Jahel is trying to edit a simple page template without having to use an html editor...may or may not work.

First off, understand that this is likely a copyright violation. Just be aware.
quote:

all i have is a domain off Go Daddy

If all you have is a domain, you will need to buy a hosting plan if you want your site to actually be on the internet.
quote:

I know I'm out of my element

What exactly is your element? You are a clusterfrick of different crazy ideas.
quote:

You kind of need an idea of how websites actually work, directories and file paths and whatnot. If you want to actually learn this stuff, then forget Dreamweaver, Word, templates, and all that garbage. Just open up some html files in notepad and see what's there, and read some tutorials. If you just want to do exactly what you're asking (straight up copy a site with a couple changes), you're better off paying some kid to do it.

it "should be" easy....the site I am copying is only one page

<--@gmail.com

Email me the site, the images you want to replace, and the new title and I'll do it for free (unless I have to create any images). I'll even point out and explain the changes I made. All you'll have to do is upload them to your domain.

re: Easy HTML writer suggestions


Now you're talking in screen shots and concepts.

I thought there was an actual functioning site that you wanted modified? I can take 10 minutes to edit code. I don't think I can find a few hours for any in-depth work, even paid.

But please do send me whatever you've got, and I will do what I can. At the very least I can recommend how I think you should move ahead.

Jahel,

Serious question...Are you "Jahel" all day long, like in the office and around the house, or is this schtick?
