    I'm Confused About It

    Only if I had a USB, which I don't. I don't have the money for one. I just put the files on discs which are cheaper. Then is easier physically for me to carry around discs. Nope, the picture is not of a game. It is a the movie theater I created using so many different objects dragging and dropping them and positioning them the way I want it in the room.

    I'm Confused About It

    I was beginning to think the same thing. I was only replying to the last post trying to clear some of the misunderstandings up that looks like is happening. Use it for what? I'm not asking what a USB is used for. I already know what it does. Just don't know why I need one. Oh, also, did you all notice the picture I added to my profile on here? I created that using the computer. This is what I'm talking about all the stuff I already know how to do.

    I'm Confused About It

    Thank you for writing back. The thing is that this site doesn't seem to be explaining anything that is new to me. I've already taken classes that we even learned how to create dynamic and static websites. All kinds of things we learned how to do. Yes, the programs I'm using do the same thing as you are mentioning about the background, the drop down thing. Are people thinking I'm just beginning to create websites or something? That is what I feel like people are not understanding I've created over 50 sites already. In the beginning things didn't show up properly or at all, my pictures, etc... If I save the CSS to the Desktop it is on the desktop and not on my website. People are not looking at my desktop. Then if I'm using a different computer, it's not on that computer. See, I switch back and forth using different computers to make my sites with. Sorry, but I can't download Notepad++, my mom doesn't want me to do that. This is her computer.

    I'm Confused About It

    I just want to say I'm very sorry if I caused any problems or misunderstandings from any of my questions. Yes, I know what you mean about how when we visit sites and then our computer crashes. That happens so much to us. Then of course the other thing that is frustrating is you don't know if that is due to viruses, spyware, etc..Since we know that can cause all those things to happen. That is basically why I don't just assume it's due to a coding error. Like the virus or spyware they may have on their computer and not realize they have it. For years, both on mine and my mom's computer even too keep having so much problems due to viruses and spyware. Haven't been able to find a repairman who is able to fix the problems either. I don't plan to ever have any jobs in my life due to more than 1 chronic illness I'm dealing with is why, and then like I mentioned how the disabilities make it to what all I'm physically able to sit there and type out all that coding that the programs do for us. I know there is so much other stuff I have to type out, the words in the paragraphs, but then I don't have to sit there typing out all the coding too. I enjoy designing/decorating things. That is the other reason, you will notice how I have the background I have on the page and then the pretty colors for the text. The JTT site, is just 1 of my 50+ sites I've created over the years and is my very first one and started making it back in 1995. Some places of course don't even allow any coding. I create quizzes/games on places like funtrivia. I guess about the only other thing, some of the coding out there is intended for devices that I don't even have. Like here is what I'm talking about- "Platforms are frequently mentioned with APIs. A complete suite of APIs constitute another type of platform called software platform. Software Platforms frequently are dependent to operating systems. However, this is not always true. For example, two popular non-OS dependent platforms are Java, as mentioned above, and BREW for mobile phones.""Java programs are a typical example of the latter point. Java source code is "compiled" to an intermediate-language bytecode which is then interpreted by an interpreter, the JVM, which then interfaces that program with the Java software libraries. In phones, PDAs and other wireless mobile devices, these libraries are the Java ME. Some phones, even without a full fledged OS, enable Java programs such as games to operate. Java and the bytecode are said to be platform independent. But this is because Java is the platform as well as a programming language. Software really cannot operate without a platform or be platform independent. The programming language is referred to here, meaning the programmer need not be concerned about the hardware or operating system platform, nor will the language change with a different platform." I don't have anything that is wireless, or mobile phone, cellphones, iphone, laptops, none of those I have. I know some computers even have a tv tuner in them, which mine doesn't. I'm planning on getting one in my next computer I get. The one I have at the moment is just a Dell Desktop Dimension 8200 Windows XP Home Edition.

    Yes, and due to disabilities that I have, and others who have my disabilities can't sit there and type out all those codes, but that doesn't mean we don't understand what they mean. I know you all maybe didn't realize about my disabilities, but just makes me want to kill myself if people think I don't care about the way things are done. I care very much about how my work looks. I like everything to look nice and neat. This just makes me more and more glad that I don't do this for my job if that is what matters is what you use to create things with.

    I'm Confused About It

    The only thing that doesn't make since to me is why do they even bother to teach classes such as using all those things such as Frontpage, Dreamweaver, and all the other editors out there if that is not what to use to make websites with? Plus how do you know ahead of time that Angelfire, or other things aren't going to work right for the page? Same as like any other products you buy in life. You don't know ahead of time if it's not going to work right until you get it home and then it doesn't work for some reason or another. Which with computers, you can't expect them to work right all the time. They always are going to have problems. Ours seem to always have problems all the time due to so many things- viruses, spyware, etc..It seems the place that is hosting the site for my sister and her husband business is setup exactly like Angelfire, Geocities and any other places. Still doesn't make any since about like the table things. When I go to their site like I mentioned, the lady who they hired to make the site put tables on the site, but it doesn't seem to be affecting the way things look that I can see.I can see the text, pictures, everything just fine. That is what I'm not understanding here. Plus it doesn't seem to be affecting the business in any way either. They are getting lots of jobs from the site being there. Well, I guess about the only other thing that matters is it seems stuff I've put on all my sites seem to be showing up just fine and gives other people things to enjoy and I've been able to help others out too by making my sites. What I mean about helping others out, is one of my pages for all my sites will be just a page that has links to other people's sites. So, then it helps give them free advertising and makes me happy I was able to help them out.

    Yes, I understand what a file is. I understand how to link things together. I've made so many sites over the years, so I've had to do it correct in order for my pictures and everything else to show up on the page. The thing is I was just trying to say I know what the words external means something that is outside of something.Our files are stored inside a folders that are inside the computer which is internal. Only other thing, places like Angelfire, Geocities, etc.. you can't put the stuff in a separate file like you say to do. It's all built into the editor things we choose for the fonts, and all the other stuff. All the functions are all built in as it is in the forum here. Plus then the other thing is what someone else told me about how we can't really help any of those errors that we get on validation things "Some of those errors is because Geocities server writes code to your pages which you have no control over."

    I'm Confused About It

    Can I ask just one more question? I think I may have figured a few other things out. I'm reading things like this- "Many of the original PDAs, such as the Apple Newton and Palm Pilot, featured touchscreen for user interaction, having only a few buttons usually reserved for shortcuts to often used programs. Touch screen PDAs, including Windows Mobile devices, usually have a detachable stylus that can be used on the touch screen. Interaction is then done by tapping the screen to activate buttons or menu choices, and dragging the stylus to, for example, highlight. Text input is usually done in one of four ways:"Now is that what people are talking about when you talk about external links? See, I know the word external means something on the outside. Meaning not in the computer. So, since files I thought were located in folders, which are in the computer. I don't even have a cellphone, mobile phone, laptop, Pda, nothing. I don't have any of those devices.

    But they didn't type the doctype thing, the software/program they use automatically does it. So it's a problem with the software that did it. Nothing to do about that. EN is an abbreviation for English, I see the same thing as typed on here in the forums here. I don't see what the difference is. When I hit the view source it has the exact same thing it says to type when you look at the tutorials. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//w3c//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.or/TR/xhtmll/DTD/xhtmll-strict.dtd">Yes, I understand that not everyone is as professional as they say they are. I'm seeing that whenever hiring repairmen to fix the problems going on with our computers. Since viruses, spyware, all that stuff can cause all these problems too that are going wrong with the site and the software. It can cause all kinds of problems. So, then that is another reason I try not to judge people due to things like that which can affect what is happening. Plus as we all know, computers are always going to have problems too.

    I'm Confused About It

    This is sort of weird. This validator site thing. I've never even heard about it til now.But been trying to figure it out. I checked this site that is being done by a professional designer and they have way more errors than mine does 247 Errors, 4 warning(s) Here is the site http://www.astresurfacing.com/Anyways, like I said about like Angelfire, Geocities, etc.. No way to even separate the stuff- the colors for the links, and everything else. Once you login to the account the stuff is right there in the software. No way to put it in a different file. It has the stuff built in to the editor. It has like the list of things to choose for like the colors for the links, text, etc. all in a pull down/drop down menu. Built in like this forum. I've had so many other people try on the sites to put the stuff in a separate file and didn't work with the way their editors are setup. All I can say is sorry it doesn't work. I tried my best, and is all I can do.Like if I type the thing for the background out any differently it doesn't show up at all. If I add the words/letters url and other things to it like the parentheses() or the other braces{}, it wont show up at all. Others have already tried that for me.

    I'm Confused About It

    Yes, that's what I thought I understood that tags aren't suppose to cross each other. I also understand that you need to close the tags properly too, and how some tags like the <br> don't have a closing one. Like here is the opening paragraph tag <p> the closing paragraph tag </p>The only thing that makes me a depressed is people thinking that I don't care about the way things look? I always try and do my best work on everything to make it look nice and neat. Everytime I go to so many other sites out there, all have so many errors. So, I don't think anyone can be expected to be 100% perfect on everything. But then again, what about the lady who is doing the site for my sister and her husband. She is using tables on the site. So, she has been hired to do the job. Here is what someone said about like Geocities "Some of those errors is because Geocities server writes code to your pages which you have no control over." Plus still don't know if I understand why this one guy I know who is a computer programmer said he found nothing wrong with my sites.

    I'm Confused About It

    But I'm not building websites for any company. Why do you think I am building a website for someone?I don't even work or have a job. I am on disability. I never plan on getting a job anywhere. So, this doesn't even apply to anything I'm trying to do. My friend who is a computer programmer looked at my sites and he said he found nothing wrong with my sites. So, this is what I am talking about, I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Someone else even said that alot of the errors that are happening, I can't help because of the ads that the free web hosting companies put up. So, since that is also one of the other things. There is no way for me to even correct those things.Also, if I remove the stuff you say to remove, then my background, the colors, all that stuff will not show up anymore. Those are the colors I chose for my text and everything else to show up in. I don't know if you realize that?You see where I have background="/fl/JTT99/images/stars.gif"That is the image I have for the background. If I remove that, the background for the page will not be there anymore. I don't want that to happen. I don't want to remove that image from the page. Those other things are the colors for my links and the text on that page.If I remove them, then there will be no colors anymore. Just plain black text. Nothing else.Yes, I understand what Bandwidth is. I already told you that I've taken so many computer classes over the years. I know what that is. I even had to use all the Office programs- Excel, Access, Powerpoint, so many other things I've used too. I took online computer classes, so yes, I understand what all this is. The teacher had us use tables in the class. I don't know why she had us do that if this is wrong. I guess she was a bad teacher. We had to do databases in the class, add data to the tables. Yes, I understand there are maybe a few things on that first site, but then isn't it ok to keep some things around as an example to myself in the future of things not to do? But I've got so many other sites too. Plus in my guestbook on that site, I don't know why nobody mentioned any of it. When I read what they wrote is what I don't understand why they say that it's one of the best Jtt sites out there and stuff like that. Also, due to hacking and other stuff going on, that keeps messing all my stuff up too. I've had to redo so many things due to that too, and I keep having a terrible time with spyware, viruses, etc.. all over my computer. One of the main reasons for doing my sites is gives me something to do to help get my mind off not feeling well, but since I don't have much energy and other handicaps, I can't do some of the things some may want me to do or use to make things with. As you can see on my Jtt site, I put the pictures of him, links to other sites about him(then that gives people free advertising for their sites), and then you can see how I've got things divided into different sections- news, biography, etc.. I've actually even won awards for some of my sites too. So, thats another reason that makes this really confusing as to what all I could be doing that wrong. Of course most of my sites are on Geocities which is closing soon. But I'm actually not that upset about that. I've found other ways to do what I want to do. I'm using things like Myspace and Facebook for my pages. I've got my photos in the photo album, then I have my blog and other things.

    I'm Confused About It

    Yes, I already understand what all that is. I've taken so many classes over the years on all that stuff. I had to create databases in the classes I took and so many other things I had to create and got A's in it.I'm really good in Science, Math, Computer classes. Terrible in Reading and Vocabulary. That is the only reason that makes things difficult for me is due to not understanding the Vocabulary that well but getting better with it over the years. Yes, I understand what all you said above. That is the only reason I'm not understanding what is wrong with my websites. I have pictures, text, everything on my sites is showing up in the colors I specified for the text and everything else I have on my pages are showing up just fine. Here is what I'm talking about, here is a link to one of my over 50 sites I've created over the years.This is my very first site I created- My JTT Site I know what a computer scientist is. I hope people don't think I'm trying to be a computer scientist. I don't know what making webpages has to do with computer scientist. I mean, I know how to type out text and everything else because of having to do it for research papers, term papers, reports, etc.. in school and we add pictures to the documents too. Now the only other thing I can think of is if someone was trying to build a house, a structure then yes, you need to understand like building codes. But I'm not trying to do that either.

    I'm Confused About It

    Yes, I understand what a paragraph is, I understand what text is. Text is the stuff we are typing out into the document.So, then are the angle brackets < > the tag and the p is the element that is inside the html tag in between the angle brackets which is the tag? Am I understanding that correct?Also, then if I understand it correct, the 1st example that doesn't have the tags the angle brackets < > is the CSS? is that correct?
  15. AmyR2

    I'm Confused About It

    Sorry, I thought of something to add. Here is one of my sites I've made. The very 1st site I made. You can see what I do already know how to do, and then the thing that would help best for me is instead of telling me I'm doing everything wrong and all, maybe tell me how to correct things? Like tell me not to include certain symbols or if it's something I need to add, like say what to add? My Jonathan Taylor Thomas Site Thanks.
