How can I start a new line or paragraph in my page?

Use <BR> it is the same as hitting your enter key once. Use <P> to have the same effect as hitting the enter key twice. You can use several <BR> s or <P> s together to get larger spaces on your page. Neither of these tags need to be closed using either </P> or </BR>

What are Copy and Paste, will they help me here?

Copy and Paste are the best way to transfer text from place to place, as there is little chance for errors to occur. As with everything Windows can do, there are several ways to use Copy and Paste.

First it's necessary to Highlight the text you want to transfer. Highlighting is done by holding down the left mouse button and dragging across the text.

To Copy of the Highlighted text, press the Ctrl and hit C keys at the same time. Another way to grab the highlighted text is to right click on it, a menu will open with Copy as an option.

To Paste your text somewhere else, left click where you want the text, then press the Ctrl and hit V. Again, the right mouse button can be used to Paste.

Most browsers have an Edit button on their top, this button will also allow you to control Copy and Paste from it's drop down menu. You also have the option to Select All from the Edit menu or Ctrl and A. When you use your browser View Source to see the HTML making a page, you can use Copy there also. However, you will need to use the arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll the page during highlighting.

How do I post a file for my guest to download?

You need to upload it to your directory as a .zip file, then post it as a file like this:

If your zip files are on the first level with index.html file:
<a href="name.zip"> download name zip</a>

If you create a subdirectory for the zip files in the name of zipfiles.
<a href="zipfiles/name.zip"> download name zip </a>

OR

  1. Create a new page, name it anything but not index.html.
  2. Copy and paste the info. you need from the advanced page to the new page in basic.
  3. Use Submit page to save your new page. At your web shell, highlight  the new page, click on Rename file button, in the text box type index.html and save.
