Do you have to pay to start a website?

User Avatar
No you don't have to pay, as you can always use free software and free web hosting providers. The question you should ask yourself is, since there are so many free open source software out there that with a little time spent by you could allow you to do most things. Why not invest in some cheap low end or even good shared web hosting (will cost you a couple of cups of coffee a month) and give a real go at whatever it is that you are putting together. Ofcourse, you would also need to buy your own domain name, but at least that way all the effort you put in directing traffic to your site, would go to improving your brand name and Google Ranking. Over the medium to longer term that would help you out an awful lot.

What is the difference between a menu bar and a navigation bar?

User Avatar
Menu bars allow sub-menus, but a navigation bar does not. Use the insert split option in order to create your sub-menus. Play around with it, it's pretty simple. Tabs are considered to be related to each other whereas Navigation Bar is not. Tabs are generally used to segregate data are somehow related. Like A profile can be displayed in Tabs where it can be divided in Personal, Professional, Education tabs. It is mainly used to show data about the same hierarchy but different in nature and also for organizing the data. On the other hand, Navigation Bar as it suggests is used for different topics which might not be inter related.

How do you put a webcam on your website?

User Avatar
There are a number of steps to this. Ideally, you want a program that will automatically upload your image to the FTP settings. If you want to, you can even put streaming video on your website nowadays, and not just stills! 1) Get a webcam working -- the sort you'd use to video-chat on Skype. 2) Sign up at www.ustream.com (free). 3) Copy the "Embedding" code provided by ustream, so you can put a live video window in your website. 4) Add the code to your page. 5) Finally, follow the simple instructions on ustream to "go live." Everything the webcam sees (and hears) is streaming to anyone who visits your website. Up to 100,000 people can watch the stream at once (providing you're broadcasting, of course). Pretty clever. Next, when you want to extend your capabilities during streaming, have a look at superwebcam (also free), which lets you superimpose scrolling messages, graphics, etc. on the outgoing video picture. You can also use it to broadcast still pictures or video from your hard disk when you don't want to be seen personally. Ustream also has a Facebook app, so you can embed your live stream in your Facebook Profile page. To view the live video streaming from webcam on website, a Web FLV player that supports live streaming is needed. You can check the RTMP Stream Plugin from playerdiy.com - http://www.playerdiy.com/configuration/addons/rtmp.html This is tutorial - http://www.playerdiy.com/support/tutorial/customize-flash-video-player.html

What type of laptop would be best for graphics internet web design basic office and making cds?

User Avatar
Essentially what it boils down to is a system that will help you with the type of overall work you're doing and the programs required to achieve your goals for that project. Mac or PC really doesn't matter anymore, though there are those on both sides who will swear by both. The top design programs are built for use with both Mac and PC, so in the end, what matters is your personal preference, software technical requirements (RAM, Video RAM, CPU, etc.), and of course, what you can afford. In general, the best type of notebooks for top design programs are going to be those for gaming or high performance. This is because they are specifically built for high-end multimedia use and presentation, and if you compare the technical requirements for such programs, they line up very well with high performance systems, with a little extra for software updates as time passes. Bottom line - for top performance, check the system requirements of the media design programs you wish to run, be it for graphics, sound, video, animation, etc., double the RAM and VRAM, and you'll be set with a system that should carry you through at least 3 software updates. Always get a system with 2 internal drives, never just one; a single drive severely limits performance when dealing with design programs (e.g., main drive being used as a scratch disk for large files).

How do you replace the Guestbook icon - the one generated by the Guestbook manager - with your own icon?

User Avatar
The icon used depends on if the web site uses a Favicon image. This is a specially formatted file type with the .ico extension. You include the Favicon using the HTML link tag with a rel of "shortcut" and href of your image path. i.e. <link rel="shortcut" href="images/favicon.ico" />

Is there a resource for finding out collection agencies names and addresses for bankruptcy?

User Avatar
Get a copy of your credit report from the three major credit bureaus. You can get one free copy from each per year by law. You can obtain this free copy at http://annualcreditreport.com (see link below). These reports should have the contact info of your creditors (and collection agencies) listed. Google / Phone book combination is the best.

Using FrontPage how do you get a form to submit to email and reset to the original values via one button?

User Avatar
* First of all, you have to inset a new form, Insert>Form. Then, add all the information you need to the form (inputs, text box, check box, etc.) see the HTML code and where it says POST you ofcourse have to direct it to the process page, it can be php or asp as the most known. don't ever try if you don't know what i mean by the process page. actually all this staff with forms requiered an extra programming language which can be php or asp. If you do know, then just add all the items text box etc.. between* I would definitely agree with the answer of PHP and ASP process pages. You must make a process page that will do both at the same time (or in order that you wish) it was easy to just post "mailto:email@email.com" back before security came out hard. I still use perl scripts as a form handler on all my customers pages. it works and you can apply CSS styles to them... Please note that FrontPage is an obsolete product and was discontinued in 2003. A common complaint regarding it is that it generates bloated and incomprehensible HTML code. You should use a better editor.

Why are you not allowed to re post images from the web on your webpage?

User Avatar
Reposting images on other websites and putting them onto your website is a violation of Copyright Laws. In short, Copyright Laws protect people from having their information, pictures, ideas and other forms of media copied. One benefit of copyright allows you, the author, to post your images and text on your website and then later see it on someone else's website and have them take credit for your work. In order to copy something from another website to yours, you must obtain expressed permission from the website owner/author and correctly cite the sources (that is, you must have a statement in medium from that website owner that you may copy their information, you can't just assume). The website owner/author may also ask that you add more information such as add a link or other text citing the website so that they may be properly recognized.

What is meant by web management or maintaining a website?

User Avatar
Website Maintenance Web Project Management is a science in that it relies on proven and repeatable processes and techniques to achieve success. Website maintenance is all about steadily upgrading, reviewing (how people respond to your stuff) and/or bringing in new things to keep them coming back.... Maintaining your site should also include: -- Checking to make sure there has been no vandalism to your site, guestbook, message board... regularly checking site security to protect your guests' and your own personal info, too. -- Making sure all of your pages are loading properly, including animations, sound files, images... -- Fixing broken external links: Visit external links once in a while to make sure they still lead to the sites they are supposed to, and to make sure the links don't lead to "404" pages or sites that no longer exist. -- Removing old or outdated content... -- Checking your stats: How much traffic does your site get daily; do you have enough bandwidth to accommodate the traffic you get or does your site become unavailable for lengths of times because you've exceeded your daily or monthly allowance; checking your search engine ranking -- and making adjustments accordingly; upgrading or purchasing more bandwidth; adding new content to draw more traffic... -- Checking regularly to be sure your site host doesn't remove your site due to lack of activity; and, more importantly, to be sure your host doesn't have too much "down time" making your site unavailable. Maintain your web site includes make a daily analysis of your Google Analytics report, It is very important for manage your web traffic average. Also if using a content management system (CMS) it's important to keep up to date with the new releases and update the system. ----- Today it's important to have fresh new content on your website so management also involves market research, competition analysis, writing new content, internet marketing, etc... it's really a full time job for big sites.

How do you create a website?

User Avatar
Creating your own Website There are two main options available, either use a service for creating free websites, which is much easier and is usually free, or you can create your website from scratch with your own domain name (such as www.example.com) and hosting. Note that there are two guides on this page. Please see the related links below for links to services/websites mentioned. - Creating a Website using a Free Service There are many websites that will handle most of the hard work for you, the most popular sites are Webs.com, Google Sites (for websites), Blogger and Wordpress (for blogs) For most of these sites, you create an account, fill in a form about your basic website information, pick a layout, then it's all ready to start adding content! You will get a unique URL for your website such as "http://******.wordpress.com/" (asterisks will be the name you've picked) If you are interested in making your own website and having your own domain name, (eg. www.example.com), you can try to follow the guide just below this one. Note: Google Sites allows you to buy a domain name, instead of a default. Domains are usually around £7/$12 per year. - Creating a Website from Scratch First, you will need to learn a language called HTML. You can learn it for free at htmldog, google code, w3.org, or w3schools (see links below). It is quite easy to learn, you shouldn't find anything too hard. Second, you will probably want some software to help create your web pages. If you want to be able to make them without looking just at the source code, then you should get a 'WYSIWYG' (what you see is what you get) editor. Adobe Dreamweaver and Microsoft Expression Web are the most popular, but these are not free. Amaya, CoffeeCup and SeaMonkey are popular, free alternatives. Now you will probably want to buy a domain name. Domain names are what you type into the address bar, but only act as a link to a hosting server. '.com' domain names are about £7.50/$12 from GoDaddy, or $10 from Google Apps, but it can vary greatly. You can get a free 'domain name' from www.co.cc, but the choice is limited. Next, find a hosting service. These companies will put your website on the web, and there are quite a few websites that offer free hosting. However, the problem with the free services is that it can be a lot slower than paid hosting, and may contain adverts. You will have to link the domain to the hosting service, then all you need to do is upload files (the method to upload files varies between which host you picked, but it'll probably be either through a website or by FTP) As you become more familiar with creating websites, you may choose to learn how to properly use HTML, CSS (W3C standards and XHTML/HTML5) and maybe even more advanced languages like JavaScript or PHP/ASP. You will then be able to make much better-looking websites with the ability to do anything you could imagine! There is also a step by step process that walks your through the whole process... such as Site Build It. They are not free but they are excellent.
