Step 13) Inserting Text. OMG WORDS?! On a website? NO WAY. Here are some things to keep in mind when putting words on a website.
- Most people on the web (unfortunately) don't like to read. D: That's why web-novels aren't very popular. Unless your website needs to have a lot of words, don't put so many words on it.
- Words are more bearable with pictures. Even if you don't need an image, you can stick one in there anyway to break up the textextext. (You might've noticed some screenies are extraneous.)
- Use bullet points if you really need to put a lot of info down. It makes people think it's less text, so they're more likely to actually read it.
In order to insert text, go to the cell you want text in and ...type. Haha not very hard.
That properties panel has just about everything you'll need for text. Font, size, color, fontface and alignment. The buttons under the alignment area are: unordered lists, ordered lists, indent and outdent.
(Now for some simple code most of you should already know.)
<b>text</b> = text,
<i>text</i> = text
<font color="green">text</font> = text
(or replace green with #xxxxxx - a hex color code)
<font size=4>text</font>= text (sizes range from 1-6)
<p align="right"> texthere</p> makes a paragraph aligned to the right, like so. There's also "right" "center" and "justify."
<blockquote></blockquote> around a paragraph indents it. For example, all the text on this page is within a blockquote. If it weren't the text would be touching the edge of this table. And that'd be ugly.
<hr> makes a line.
Which you can also use to break up your text, so it doesn't overwhelm word-phobic internet users.It is not cool to have 15 different fonts and sizes on the page~
Not to mention different colors. Do don't do that ^. Consistency please. That's not to say two fonts, or two colors of two sizes cant be used well. Just don't overdo it. Titles and Subtitles are usually bolded or in different color/size and that's fine.
I won't include the code for ordered and unordered lists because I'm lazy. If you really want to know, you can google it up. It's easy enough to find.
Now that I have words on this site, all that's left is the poll and vote sections before Costrasa website is complete.
