Sitebuilding on Elftown


Help and discussions about building and uploading your own web-site on Elftown with the <URI:sitebuild.html> feature.

If you have a domain registered, you can make a redirect to your Elftown domain. Eventually, it might be possible to only show your domain (that you point to www.elftown.com) but nothing is planned yet.

How to build a site?!?


Well... You can copy a simple page and edit that to make it display what you want. Nowadays it's quite hard to find simple pages though, because they mostly contain stylesheets and javascript that is hard to read. But I recommend these:

http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/

I'll add some simple example index.html and index.css files later.

If you want to play around with javascript, then your head will explode...

2009-02-06 [Viking]: Looks interesting. I may have to try this out.

2009-02-14 [Veltzeh]: How about PHP?

2009-02-15 [Hedda]: You can't use it.

2009-02-15 [Viking]: Javascript won't cause heads to explode.

2009-02-15 [Veltzeh]: Dang. Will you ever allow PHP?

2009-02-15 [Hedda]: I find that highly unlikely. What do you want to use it for?

2009-02-15 [Veltzeh]: Well, my whole homepage gallery is made with PHP, and I was thinking if I could put all that on ET, but I'm sure that would've been too much even without PHP.

2009-02-15 [Viking]: If you already have a homepage hosting php you should be able to make javascriot calls to that page.

Of course if you're looking to replace that page, it won't really help...
