Use these tips to enhance your website

I came across a few tutorials and tips that I implemented on my website and I want to share them with you.

Creating page anchors
Your website, most probably, consists of multiple pages. Page anchors allow visitors to jump to a specific place in the current page or to jump to a specific place on another  page...

One menu multiple pages
I started with one implementation and then another one. However, after I did some research, both were search engines unfriendly. Now I have applied third method...

Everyone has encountered the frustrating 404 error page. You follow a link, looking forward to the joy waiting for you on the other side, when BAM! you get an error because the page you were looking for does not exist.

Rotating banner - one image a day - 7 days a week
Sometimes I take part in the discussion on a few forums, one of which is facilitated by the Web Host where I have parked my website and a couple of blogs. One participant wanted to know if it was possible to have a script that will display a different image on each of the seven days of the week. It should then start again for the next week and so on. So then it would depend on the day of the week. She said she has seven images with given hyperlinks and the target must be set to _blank.

CSS (Cascade Style Sheet) - You can have the simplest possible implementation of CSS. Create a file in MS Notepad and call it styles.css or anything else but the extension has to be css. FTP it to your web server. The contents of a basic css file are:

<style type="text/css">
A:link {text-decoration: none; color: blue;}
A:visited {text-decoration: none; color: blue;}
A:hover {text-decoration: none; color: green;}
A:active {text-decoration: none; color: blue;}

Add the following link between <head> and </head> tags which should be in all content files.

<link href="http://www.YourDomainName/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

Now, if you want to expand on your css file, you make the changes and all menus and content files will be affected by those changes. You do not have to do anything else for that matter.

By the way, the css file contains hover. So when you hover mouse over a link, the color changes to that particular color stated in the hover directive.

You can look at my css file by downloading it from my website where the vertical menu is defined by navcontainer and the horizontal by horiztab. You can Copy and Paste it in MS Notepad, make changes to it, save it and upload it to your Web host.

There is another free downloadable utility Windows Grep that helped me a lot while I was testing my website. The UNIX and Linux folks use it all the time. I was unaware that such a utility existed in Windows. The usage is quite simple and self-explanatory.

Newbie Introduction to the World Wide Web
Refresh your knowledge of World Wide Web. Dr. Samuel Johnson once remarked, "Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it." Some people might consider all this web terminology mambo-jumbo. For some of us, it is exactly just that, mambo-jumbo. Sometimes you just don't want to get involved in it. You look for website builder package that is simple yet powerful to get your website done in a hurry.
