6 About Proper HTML Coding
22 Use Yahoo! PageWizards to Create a Page
24 Use the PageBuilder
7 Set Up a Web Page's Basic HTML Structure
2 Use HTML Tags
Finding the PageWizard and PageBuilder tools is fairly easy to do from the home page of your site. Finding the HTML Editor takes a little more work because the HTML Editor is part of the File Manager. You are going to take a look at the File Manager later in the chapter, but in this task, you are going to access it to get to the HTML Editor.
Go to Your GeoCities Home Page
My address will be www.geocities.com/tacothechook. Your address will be whatever login name you chose when you established your account.
You should see the placeholder file that was created initially. Click on the File Manager link.
Open the File Manager
The File Manager entry page opens and asks what files it is supposed to show. Leave the defaults as they are and click on the Open File Manager link.
33. Use the HTML Editor
Explore the File Manager Interface
At the top of the page, you'll see a file list of all the files on your site. For now, you should have the index.html page, which is your placeholder that comes up when you type in your address at GeoCities. Some of you should have a file called night_vision.html, which is the page you created in PageWizard in Chapter 4, "Getting Started Building Web Pages on GeoCities,"and modified in PageBuilder in Chapter 5, "Use the Yahoo! PageBuilder to Build Advanced Pages." You should also have a file called temporarypreviewfile.html, which is the file created to enable you to preview your file as you work. Finally, you should have the images that you uploaded.
If you have more files already, that's okayit just means that you have added pages to the site already from the PageBuilder or PageWizard. Our goal is to explore and learn the interface, not require specific files.
Above the list of files are buttons that enable you to perform actions on the files. You are going to use them in a minute.
In the file list you will see the names of the files, a set of check boxes that let you select the files on which you are going to perform an action, the dates that the files were last modified, a link to view the files, a link to see stats of the HTML pages, and the sizes of the files.
At the bottom of the File Manager window there are stats that show how much disk space you have used and how much you have available.
The green and blue PageBuilder or PageWizard icon in the Name list in the File Manager indicates that the file was built in PageBuilder or PageWizard. If you try and open one of these files to edit, you will get a warning that changes you make won't be saved if you reopen that file in the PageBuilder or PageWizard applet.
