4 Create Folder to store Webpages on Local PC
Open up “My Computer” icon Look for the “T:” drive Create a Folder called: website Do this by going to “File->New Folder” If you do not have a “T:” drive, simply use the “C:” drive You will save all your web related work in this folder. With the T: drive, you can login to any seas machine and see your website folder

5 Creating Main Webpage The main webpage must be called: index.html
It is a simple text file, we can use any text editor to create On a PC, we use Notepad to create this file, DO NOT use an editor like MSWord

6 Writing HTML HTML is the language web browsers like the Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari can read It uses opening and closing “TAGS” to identify different sections of a webpage. Example, to mark the TITLE of a webpage: <title>Main Webpage</title> Closing TAG Opening TAG

7 Writing HTML Open Up Notepad type what you see below
Save the file as: T:\website\index.html Open a web browser and view the file by typing: T:\website\index.html

8 Writing HTML – Adding a Link
To add a “Link” to a webpage, we use the following TAG sequence: <a href=" Website</a> This will add “HYPERLINK” to your webpage T:\website\index.html

9 Uploading webpage to webserver
To “publish” our webpage, we transfer the file: index.html to the GWU SEAS webserver To do this, we use a “Secure File Transfer Client” or SFTP The SEAS’s SFTP server is called: Your seas username and password are required to login For Home, free SCP clients are available from: PC users: Mac users:

10 Open up SFTP Client Connect to webserver
1. From Desktop, click on: SSH Secure File Transfer Client 2. Once the SFTP Client opens, Click on the “QUICK CONNECT” button Host: Username: your seas username, then connect!

11 Uploading webpage to webserver
Type in T:\website in the box at the top Drag index.html to public_html folder YOUR PC SEAS Server:

index.html is now published on the Internet Any file placed under the folder: public_html will be published on the Internet, so anyone will Be able to view them! Change: tfarmer to your seas username

13 HTML Editors Manually typing HTML files is tedious
To produce more interesting webpages, quickly, an HTML editor is needed There are many different commercial HTML editors: Dreamweaver, Microsoft Front Page For this class, we will use an “opensource” editor called: N View We must download and install this editor on your local workstation
