      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content.

Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

What HTML do I use to add text between 2 words

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

I just need a simple code to add space between words. I have some text above a pic so I would like one word to align to the left and the other to the right. So it would be (if you refer to the image) Seca 674        Information. One of my words is actually a link to another page though so not sure what I can use. I thought of using <p>...</p>  but then the height spacing is too big (like the top image in the picture attached). 

Help!

 

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.

It doesn't matter which element you use because you can use CSS to change the padding or margin of the element. If it's a link, use <a>. The element you use should describe the content. If any of the elements in the table on this page matches the meaning of your text, then use them. If nothing can properly describe your content then use <div> for block display and <span> for inline display.

You should never choose an HTML element based on how it looks, but based on how well it describes the content. Use CSS to change how an element looks.

This is my text (I use Wordpress for the website): Seca 674 <a href="http://69.89.27.208/~balands8/seca-674/" target="_blank">Information</a>   I want to know what I can use to add a decent space between Seca 674 and Information (which is the link). Nothing of what you said makes much sense to me. Sorry.

If all you want to do is add space between the elements, you need CSS. You can add padding to the left of the link.

Can you pretend that you are explaining it to a 5 year old? As in, where am I suppose to put the code and, oh ya, what would the coding be? I'm guessing I have to put 

p {
   padding-left: 80px;
}

somewhere but since I am still learning...

You should go through the CSS tutorial first, everything should be answered there. There's no point just copying and pasting code, you need to understand what it does.

I understand what they do. It's just to know where I have to place them.

The answers are in the CSS tutorial: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_howto.asp

There are three ways of inserting a style sheet:

  • External style sheet
  • Internal style sheet
  • Inline style

 

Quote

External Style Sheet


<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystyle.css">
</head>

 

 

Quote

Internal Style Sheet


<head>
<style>
body {
    background-color: linen;
}

h1 {
    color: maroon;
    margin-left: 40px;
}
</style>
</head>

Inline Styles


<h1 style="color:blue;margin-left:30px;">This is a heading</h1>

There is always the simple nbsp character, but if you have no understanding of CSS then you should learn how to use that.

Ohhhh thanks davej. I never even thought to use nbsp character. That actually worked great. Thanks for your help. It was so simple.

This might be over kill, when you can simply add padding to link on left. Wrap in span, span is inline like anchor link

<span>Seca 674<a href="http://69.89.27.208/~balands8/seca-674/" target="_blank">Information</a></span>

then use

span a:before {content: ""; padding-left: 1ex;}

using &nbsp; before anchor text means this will have underline.

Thanks dsonesuk, I will give that a try. Although, the nbsp character worked out great! :)
