Microsoft FrontPage

Post by Dino » Sat Dec 28, 2002 1:31 pm

I dont really know where to place this so I thought maybe here will do...



Anyone know how to use Microsoft Frontpage? I really want to create a website myself but no one in my family knows how. I tried the free yahoo ones, but I think they're quite ugly and there's few choices for me. Could anyone who knows how to use that program give me a tip on how to start? I know, basically, nothing... thats what I know.

Or, is there something out there thats sort of the same and easier to use? (but not the "fill in the blank" kind of thing)



Thanks in advance! :flowers:

Frontpage will be a hundred times more useful and easier to use if you know HTML. I recommend http://www.webmonkey.com, click on Beginner. If you want to make a webpage, that's the place to start. Frontpage and other WYSIWYG editors are a lot more helpful if you know what they're doing.

Hypertext MarkUp Language. The thing that your websites are made up of. It is a code that your web browser interprets and turns into a website.

HTML, or hypertext markup language, is the code that tells your browser what to display and where. It's the code behind every webpage. Don't worry though, it's not complex at all.

Even Javascript's not all that bad. Beyond my current grasp, but if I were motivated I'd pick it up. C++, Perl, that's where you get into some rough territory.



Oh, how I long to be a geek. Computer programming is just about the only thing I need to fully qualify me... I already am a geek by many standards. I own the three core rulebooks of D&D, I stay up to early hours of the morning online with caffiene highs on weekends, I play Magic, I program my calculator, I can do HTML and CSS and some very basic MUSH code, I am on Usenet for crying out loud, I do well in school, I've been online long enough to have a firm grasp on my own personal web design standards, I can type 55 words a minute spelling things correctly and fixing typos, I can read and type l337 but generally refuse to do so on general principal, and All your base are belong to us will never die. I am so taking computer programming next year, I want to run with the best of them. :geek: Shh, don't tell anyone, in real life people are generally unaware of my technological ability. </rant



I already am buying the Chix0r shirt from ThinkGeek.com. I justify this because I speak l337 and some dude online told me I should get it so I can't be all that technologically inept.

Binary in general is a very easy concept. Programming with it, I have no idea. Same with hex.
