New Site Questions


#1

I am creating a new site with Dreamweaver and I am not entirly sure what I am doing. All my files in Dreamweaver have a name such as index.html or intro.html. Therefore to see those file one must go to www(dot)markchambersmusic(dot)com/intro.html

When I go to just markchambersmusic(dot)com I get the directory listing. Could anyone offer me some advice as to what I need to do to get my intro as www(dot)markchambersmusic(dot)com

Thanks

On DH your first page must be index with an extention examples: index.html, index.php, etc.
Each additional page can be named what ever you decide is appropriate and link to the via the index page.
So page2.html url would look like
http://www.example.com/page2.html
A link on your page would use the anchor tag with href so it would look like this: <a href="http://www.example.com/page2.html>Page 2
Or you can use relative links so if page 2 is in the same directory for example it would be Page 2
Hope this helps,

So my first page will be www.markchambersmusic.com/index.html?

How does this exclude anyone from seeing my directory as it stands now at www.markchambersmusic.com?

My first can’t be just www.markchambersmusic.com?

I am not sure what the anchor tag means. Can you explain? I am a little dense with the html code stuff.

Thanks.

Basically, one will get the same page thro’ www.markchambersmusic.com/index.html and www.markchambersmusic.com

In other words, you rename your page intro.html to index.html and the work will be done.

Anchor tags are there for linking. Say, you wanted to have a link to yahoo.com, now by doing Click here to see Yahoo! you will create a link that will take you to Yahoo’s website.
