Create a Web Site With Bravehost - Using the Toolbars
(Page 3 of 4 )
You’ll notice three different toolbars, each one smaller than the first, above the HTML editor. The largest and topmost toolbar shows that you are currently in the Text Editor, which is where you want to be. A smaller toolbar follows. This contains your save features and your text options. You’ll be familiar with many of the symbols already if you use word processing programs, such as Microsoft Word. These tools help you change the look of text: you can bold, underline, highlight and arrange your words.
Under the text toolbar, you have many different options which help you change the look of your pages. The first is Create Link. To use this tool, simply highlight the words within your editor that you’d like to attach to the link. Click Create Link and a pop-up screen will appear. Simply enter the address to which you’re linking, and you’re done. You can also use the Insert Image tool in a similar fashion. Simply put in the Web address where the picture is located, hit enter and the proper HTML will appear in your editor.
The HR Line tool lets you insert a horizontal line into your page. The Add Table tool lets you create a table in your page (your size options will appear on the left; simply enter the information and click Insert table to create). The Embed Web tool option allows you to place all sorts of extras on your pages, things like E-cards, a site search, polls, etc. You can also choose to Embed a talking character, a fun but somewhat time-consuming addition.
Be sure to save your progress as you create. When you want to get a look at your page, click the blue link at the very top right-hand corner of the page. This will pop up a new tab or window which shows you exactly what your page looks like.
