I am learning some computer techy lingo. And a site I am on, for one of my blogs, to change the font, color, etc. asks for me to copy and paste my HTML.

1) What is HTML?

2) Where do I find these HTML codes?

3) How do I know what codes equal what colors, fonts, spacings, etc.

Thanks!

Another site is http://www.davesite.com/ there you can actually practice your html writing, and he makes things easy to understand, it is written for those who don't know what it is, and there are other lessons there as well.

although Beenys link is really good as well, but it really don't teach you anything, but if you don't want to actually learn to write html, but to copy and paste stuff, this site is better than the one I posted.

Thanks Mike AND Beeny.

I have started reading this stuff, and with respect, you need to be a rocket scientist to understand it. It's like learning math and physics and very hard for me to understand.


Main thing...is ...it STILL does NOT tell me WHERE the HTML codes are located on my 3 blogs.

Can you guys help me with this?

Thanks xxxx :)

Well, on myspace you can change the color of your font just by clicking the color button, as far as the other blogs you have I have no idea

Maybe you could try using a program like Dreamweaver or Frontpage.
These allow you to edit the page visually. As far as putting the HTML into your blog you can copy the code from HTML view in these programs and then paste into the blog.
Hope this makes sense.

I have 3 blogs. My blogspot blog has a specific place for ciopying and pasting HTML codes.

My queenzone blog has NONE that I can find.

My myspace blog you can change color and font, but not copy and paste any specifics or links or stuff like that.

Ok Arlene, I found it, on the lower left of the text box there is a option to view source, that is where you can input HTML... it took me a little bit, as each time I hit the space bar it sent me out, but after playing with it for a bit, I went into the main part, and put <b>hello</b> and when I saw it in the view source it showed it as <P>&lt;b&gt;hello&lt;/b&gt;</P>
so I just backed it off to the beginning and reentered the <b> and left the hello alone, and put the </b> and it worked.

check the blog out now, it should contain HTML that isn't available.. all you have to do is check the "view source" and that is where you type in the HTML

yeah and Queenzones blogs take html as well..

I THOUGHT about creating a blog for my site, but seeing as no one is really using my Notice board, I guess it wouldn't be prudent to have it yet.. maybe in a couple months..

If you just want to use it for something simple like your myspace use:

www.pimpwebpage.com


It makes things 1000000000000000000000000000000 times easier. Then all you gotta do is copy and paste the code into your profile.

It's working now.

Gee....this is SO much better and easier for a clueless technically inept dunderhead.

So...if I understand right, if i want to do any of the things it lists, I just copy the code.

Now...here's the part I don't understand...

WHERE do you paste it?

In the particular text, in the settings....????

If I am correct you can't post HTML in your actual posts here, but you can in the subject line and in the topic line, as well as your profile..
