      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. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex.

To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. 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~

Creating a blog

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone.

 

I've been learning some things at Codecademy and I decided I should start using those things I learned, so I could get more practice, not forget it, and learn new things I wouldn't be able to learn there.

 

So, for my first project, I decided to create a fan site (I'm not actually gonna use it, it's just for practice), and I did it using Bootstrap. For that reason, I was wandering in the W3 website, checking all the things I could do, until I found this http://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/bootstrap_pagination.asp

 

I thought it would be helpful because I wanted the fan site to be kinda like a blog. If the artist had a concert yesterday I would post an article with the set list and some videos, the next day I would post an article with the photos from the photoshoot they had done the previous week, etc., and it would appear in the homepage by publication date, just like in a blog. Yet, that page only shows how to add the pagination, and not how to actually do what I wanted.

 

So I came to the forum and I saw this topic http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=12446 saying it isn't possible to create a blog in HTML. I tried to google it, but it only returned me to sites like wordpress, blogger, etc.

 

My question is: how can I create a blog then? I know it would be simpler to do it in wordpress or blogger, but the whole point of this is practicing my skills, not actually creating a blog so, if anyone could give me some help, I would appreciate it.

You need to learn a server-side programming language. PHP is very common and Wordpress is built upon it. W3Schools has a PHP tutorial. You will also need to learn MySQL to interact with a database.

 

If all you know is HTML, this is going to be a very big leap in complexity from what you're used to.

 

Bootstrap's pagination is just to change the appearance of pagination buttons, it doesn't actually do the pagination for you.

I did the HTML, javascript and JQuery courses on Codecademy, and I was starting php, but i thought mayabe it wasn't that important. Apparentely it is... In that case, I guess I will complete the PHP course in Codecademy and read the PHP tutorial in W3.

 

I don't mind it is complex. I mean, that's the point of why I'm learning this. That in a few years I will be able to do those complex things and if I don't try to, I never will.

 

Thanks for the help ;)

I am kind of working on the same project, I am trying to build a website from a template. There is a blog page included in this template and I would like to get the comment section of this page to function. I am not sure what I need to do to get this part of the page functioning like it should. I have attached the blog page part of the template. This page is unedited so this is exactly what it looks like from when I downloaded it. Here is the link for the live preview of the template (www.spyropress.com/templates/bethlehem/blog_single.html). There are a lot of .css and .js included in this template, I have searched all these and haven't really found anything in these files that really relates to the comment section except for the style.css. This file is heavily loaded with coding for the comment section, however most of the coding is just for the look and feel not for the function of the comment section. I have attached this file as well. I hope someone can help me with this. If you need anything else please let me know.
