I am still very new to HTML, CSS, scripts etc…
So to start off I decided to find a simple template and modify it. This is how my website, veryhelpful.info/Blaise.Mibeck came into exisitance; I used the Zenlike1.0 Template by Node Thirty Three. I am very grateful to them.
For anything fancy I would search for “insert description of fancy thing” plus “html code” and see what solutions came up.
This has gotten me a long way rather quickly except for photo galleries. I am able to find photo gallery templates all right — but getting them to work with my photos was practically impossible for me. Ease of use is a big concern due to time limitations. Until now my solution was to make a table of thumbnail images — this would look more or less ok most of the time.
The solution was sitting on my computer. I am a fan of Picasa and it never ceases to amaze me.
1. Edit and select pictures,
2. Pull down the [Folder] menu,
3. Select [Export as HTML page...]
That simple! It all ends up in a hermetically sealed file. The HTML can then be tweaked and modified; for instance, by including the type of license I have decided on for the use and credit of the images.
