Spacefem's Web Tutorials
may seem pretty big, but it started out as a three-page geocities homepage back in the day. After going
at this for a few years, I've picked up more and more tricks, but nothing is really all that complicated.
Being on the web is all about knowing your resources and not being afraid to jump in there and do it.
So that's why I made these tutorials, to help some of you who are just getting started. It's also to help reduce my e-mail load because I always have people asking how I make quizzes and things like that... really it's not difficult, it just takes patience (and a text editor).
I hope you learn something from these tutorials. I tried to keep things pretty simple and just discuss the basics, because there are lots of sites out there for the more advanced programmer. If you get stuck somewhere or if something confuses me, I hope you'll drop me an e-mail (email@example.com) because the goal here really is to have tutorials that people understand.
That said, on with the show!
The Very Basic HTML Tutorial
This will guide you through making a basic HTML page if you've never done it before. You'll learn what tags are and how to use them.
Like the points-based quiz, except that this one lets you pick different "types" and assigns the result based on which "type" got the most chosen answers.
Quiz Answer Pages
This tells how to make codes available for people to copy and display results on their pages.
So you made your whole neat quiz and for some reason, it doesn't work? You're not the first! Read this, it might help.
HTML Entities Converter
If you want to publish HTML without the web page reading it, you break up its components into their individual character codes. This form does that for you, so if you want to tell everyone "Paste this code:" you can put something there for them to copy.
HTML Special Characters
The numerical ASCII HTML character codes, in the common windows symbol fonts.
