faqQ. How do I change a page to HTML view?

  • A. Bottom left of content editor
  • HTML button
  • Clicking Normal button will show design view again.

faqQ. How do I link to the middle of a page?

  • A. You must first place anchor text at the point to which you wish to jump
  • For instance, in HTML question above, I had to link question at top of page to the answer
  • Placed the cursor beside answer
  • Clicked on the Income Activator anchor icon
  • Gave insert anchor panel
  • I gave it the logical name of html
  • URL for this page is www.freewebdesign.club/19860/Website-Builder-FAQ.htm
  • So, I simply inserted #html at end of that
  • Two icons left of anchor icon is the link icon
  • Clicked on that to get panel you see on right
  • Pasted new URL in URL box and clicked OK

 

Note that this new URL could be used to link to the HTML question from any web page in the world.

 

Q. How do I create white space between image and text?

  • A. When text is too close to an image, looks unprofessional
  • It is not good website design
  • So, I create a 14 pixel margin on right side of my images
  • If there are bullet points like this one, margin is 34 pixels
  • To do that, double click on image
  • Gives you panel you see here
  • Click the style builder tab
  • Then Border button
  • In dropdown box select Right
  • Add 14 to the Margin box
  • OK.

 

Q. If a page is too long, how do I split it in two?

  • A. For SEO purposes, usually best to have a page between 300 and 500 words
  • (The word count is in lower right-hand corner of content editor)
  • If page is too long, can create a brand new page
  • For page
    title, you can add something like “p.2” to end of first title
  • However, copying text and images in normal view usually erases
    formatting, images, and sometimes content
  • So, have to copy
    in HTML view
  • To do that, you should know something about HTML
    • When things are coded
      in HTML, tags around input will tell a browser such as Firefox or
      Safari how to display input

 

  • For instance, a line above says If a page is too long, how do I split it in two?  
  • However, it is not italics; it is in bold font
  • So, that sentence has to be surrounded by bold tags
  • The end tag will have a slash in front of the tag word
  • When are copying HTML code, have to make sure pairs of tags are kept intact

 

Steps for splitting a page

1. Create a new page
2. In normal view, decide upon logical place to divide long page
3. Copy (Cmd C) a string of unique text into clipboard
4. Go into HTML view
5. Cmd F > Cmd V to find place where find string of unique text
6. Highlight all the HTML code that has to be pasted into new page
7. Cmd C to copy it into your clipboard.  (Do not use Cmd X to cut it out.  Do not want to delete until have checked work)
8. Go into new page, change it into HTML view and Cmd V to paste all of the code
9. Go into normal view to check work.
10. If you are satisfied that things were pasted correctly, save page and then delete selected code from first page
