7 Set Up a Web Page's Basic HTML Structure


2 Use HTML Tags

Creating a page from scratch in the HTML Editor from the File Manager is easy, but requires you to know how to code from scratch (at least a little). For more information about hand coding HTML , see 6 About Proper HTML Coding .

Create a New Page

Click on the Create HTML link in the File Manager.

A new page comes up in the HTML Editor with the basic parts of the page added for you.

On the top of the interface is a space for a filename. Add that name now. After you have named the file, click on the Save and Continue button. The space to name the file disappears and the filename appears in its place.

Add a Title to Your Page

Highlight the word Untitled between the <title> and </title> tag and type " Photo Album ". This is the title that will appear at the top of the window when the page is viewed .

This is the only thing you are going to add to the head of the document.

Add a Headline

Put your cursor on the line after <body> and type a good, engaging headline. I've named mine <h1>Taco the Chook Presents Photos</h1> .

This sets a level-one heading H1 in the document that tells the browser to display the type bold and large.

Add a New Paragraph

After the H1 tag, create a new line and type <p></p> .

The paragraph or <p> tag is where all your text should go. You should have a beginning and end for the <p> tag, so add the </p> tag at the end. Add some text inside the tags to talk about the pictures you are going to include.

Save and Continue

Click the Save and Continue button at the top of the HTML Editor.

If you click on the Save and Continue button, it keeps the file open so you can continue editing. If you click on the Save button instead, your page is saved to the website, the HTML Editor is closed, and you are taken back to the File Manager .


Congratulations on completing your first set of HTML codes, also called tags . Tags are placed between less-than ( < ) and greater-than ( > ) signs. Also, in many cases you must use an opening ( <b> ) and closing tag ( </b> ) to show the beginning and end of your tagged content. The closing tag begins with a slash ( / ). Not all tags follow these rules, but many do, like the Bold tag you've just learned in this tip.
