New videos on creating your own CMS
Reviewing the visual structure of our static site
In this video we take a look at our static web site piece by piece to get a sense of how we would normally talk about the different parts of a web page.
Reviewing the folder and file structure of our static site
After taking a look at our static site in a browser, we look at the file structure to see what's happening behind the scenes. If you've been following along with the videos so far, this will be cake. :)
Comparing the HTML structure of our home and about pages
In this video we take a look at two of our static pages to see how much of the HTML is the same between the two, and what we can start to pull out into template files.
Creating our footer and applying our templates to the home page
After identifying some of the common areas between our multiple static pages, we start by creating a header file (see the FREE video above), and continue to create a footer file, both of which contain elements repeated on each page.
