How To Create a Template For Blogs





~~~~~~~ Welcome to Sexual Health and Sex Guide. ~~~~~~~


How To Create a Template For Blogs


1. Open any "Text Editor" you have. Example Windows has 2 text editors, "NotePad" and "WordPad".

I use NotePad to create my templates.

2. Follow my example for my daily "Todays Sex Quote and Joke".

3. I type the "bold tag" <"b"> for the title of my blog. Since my eyes are not as sharp as they used to be, I put all my text in bold, and I put my "close tag" on the last line of my blog. This is called "nesting" "first tag opened" - "last tag closed"

4. I type the "open tag" for color of text to be blue<"color blue">. I type as many lines of blue text I want. Then I type the "close tag" <"/close"> to stop using blue colored text.

5. On the line that says "Today in am honoring:", I type the "open tag" <"blog cajunpet">, I leave the handle out in my template, and add the person's handle when I decide who I am choosing to put in. Then I type the "open tag" <"photo cajunpet">. (You do the same for <"member cajunpet"> if you want to put a link to the member's profile page.)
I have a line across the page to seperate my quoute from my joke.

6. I type the "open tag" to change the color of my text to green <"color green">. I type the information on how to find help on the "Bloggers of this friendly site". I type the "close tag" <"/color"> to stop the green text.

7. I type the "open tag" to change my text to blue <"color blue">, in my text. I type the "close tag" <"/color"> to end the blue color text.

8. I type the "close tag" <"/b"> to end bold text.

Presto!!!! I now have my template made. I save my file in notepad as "Todays Sex Quote and Joke Template".

9. The next day when I add a post for the todays sex quote and joke, I start NotePad, open my template, "Copy" my template, and "Paste" it in the Post. Then I add what I want to, and add the post. In a couple of minutes, I created a new post. It save a lot of time, and you are sure that your "open and closed tag" are working properly each time you use your template.

10. It is not that hard to do, once you understand how to use tags.

11. Below is what I created while I showed you how to create this template.

12. If you have any questions or problems, please leave them in comments or e-mail me.

Any questions you have is NOT a dumb question. If you do not know something the only way you are going to learn, is to ask the questions you have.

Thank you, and have a great day.

Don.
