First, go to:
websites.beonair/username (your first initial and last name)
…content/add content/basic page
Then…call it “about me” and write two paragraphs about yourself.
As your writing stands, it will publish as a big blog of text.
The first thing you need to do is to put this command between paragraphs, which is called a page break:
Then…try adding bold and italics. You have to begin and end a bold/italics command.
So, if I want to bold the word Seth, the code is <b>Seth</b>
Add bold and italics. The end result should look like this. If you want to try adding some other code (headlines, etc) you can check out more basic commands on the w3 Schools reference page.
If you’re having trouble with bold, use this command: <strong>Seth</strong>
Last thing before break…
Create a menu link, so you can get back to this…below your text box, click “provide menu link” and then hit “save.”
Then…it’s break time!
Now…time for the hardest thing…a link out.
The link out will be text that shows up as a different color and/or underlined (depending on your theme) and clicks through to another site.
Here’s an example:
You can check out the score of last night’s Chicago Bulls game.
To create this in HTML, you need to do the following:
Copy this code at the end of the sentence, but don’t include the words “Chicago Bulls game”
You can check out the score of last night’s <a href=”http://www.w3schools.com/” target=”_blank”>Visit W3Schools!</a>
I’m going to replace Visit W3Schools! with Chicago Bulls game. (bolded for effect…don’t bold yours).
Then, I”m going to replace this: http://www.w3schools.com/ with the website I want to link to: http://www.nba.com/bulls/
The end result should look like this:
You can check out the score of last night’s <a href=”http://www.nba.com/bulls/” target=”_blank”>Chicago Bull’s game</a>.
It will look like this before you save it:
And this after you hit save:
Another way to look at this…here’s the original.
<a href=”http://www.w3schools.com/” target=”_blank”>Visit W3Schools!</a>
And here’s what you need to change:
<a href=”PUT THE WEBSITE URL HERE” target=”_blank”>PUT YOUR TEXT HERE</a>
