My 1st question is: Is there any free iPage web hosting site? Thanks in advance for any comment. Another question I got... I have to make an art webpage for my IB Art class. Everything is about layout, and blah, blah, blah (you know how wacky art/music teachers can get)... Since quite a few of the members on this iPage site are teens; students I was wondering if you would be so kind as to (if your school has one) post the URL to your school's webpage. I don't have any clue at all how to start! The teacher has only given me the names of the sections and has hinted that he likes "moving objects".

You betcha! but you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you ask the iPage guys because they can assist you better...

Nah, he definitely likes moving objects as in scrolling texts (marquees), animated gifs, and even those little mouse trail things (JScript, when you have something trail the movements of the mouse)... I personally don't like that, too distracting... he wants an idea for the main page for Tuesday, hopefully I'll have something decent looking by then..

<shudder> Mouse tails. You have my sympathy. Ick..

Hmmmm.... but a scrolling marquee....

Well, that might work. I'm still used to thinking in terms of print design, but if the top 1/4 of the page were the logo of the school, the marquee could be directly underneath that with "breaking news" - recent school sports scores and other school club happenings, and the bottom section could be the main menu part with further details or links to further details..

You know, I just might play around with an idea or two like that. Thanks for the idea!.

Well, thanks, and I'm glad that this discussion gave you some ideas for yourself. I'll post the main page when I'm done, well, It'd have to be posted on the net in order for that, right? Oh, so I guess that leads me to ask if you would be able to see my iPage site if I were to post it on HTMLforums as an attachment? Since it WON'T be on the net yet..

It *should* work as an attachment, the same as any other page we add on to our messages. You might have to add any images as an attachment as well, though..

It might be easier, though, to find a freebie iPage site for stuff like that. Tripod or Geocities or someplace like that and just link to it. I'd suggest FortuneCity, but it doesn't allow things like SWF files or other "exotic" types of files any more. I'm not even sure it would allow a javascript file..

A 'spare site' doesn't have to be elaborate, you know. Just some place to post your practice exercises. That's what we used to have to do for class. And it gave us a chance to see what our iPage site looked like on another computer/browser/monitor, too, because it wasn't in just one place..
