Hey, WAMUSA members--now you can post your own Internet Home Page for the world to see. I know what you're thinking--"What does it cost? Do I have to know some programming language? Will I have to buy an expensive program to create it?"
Well, you're in luck. Members of WAMUSA can post their home pages for free.
What is HTML? It stands for Hypertext Markup Language, what a mouthful! It is not really a programming language like C++ or VisualBASIC, but actually a set of instructions to tell the browser how to display text and graphics on a page. I'll include here some links to get you started.
Just so everything works the first time, name your home page (the first page your viewers will see) default.htm. To get other pages to link back to this one, use
<a href="/members/your-login" >Home < /a >.
Name all your other pages with the extension .htm. Please name all your files with the old DOS 8.3 format, as some of the Windows 95 long file names will not work. To get your site up on our Web server, bring in all your pages (htm files) and images (in gif or jpg format) on a 3.5 inch diskette to WAM Computers.
Many web sites have digital counters displayed. WAMUSA is no exception... we are all set up with a CGI Counter program, and here's what you do. Just add this line to your page:
< img src="/cgi_bin2/counter/counter.exe?link=UserName&style=styleType&width=0" >
For example, your user or login name is jsmith, and you want to use the eggs digits with one leading zero, your line will look something like this
You are egg # < img src="/cgi_bin/counter/counter.exe?link=jsmith&style=eggs&width=1" > to see this page!
If you don't include a width, the default is 4 digits. In other words, until you reach a thousand hits, your digits will look like this: 0010, instead of just 10.
A list of the available digits.
Well that should get you started. For those of you who would love a Home Page, but learning HTML is just not for you, Web design services are available at WAM Computers 12/8/2019
