How to Use HTML Code for Freewebs
Navigate to Freewebs.com and click on the 'Sign Up' button at the top of the screen. On the next page, choose a user name and fill in all your personal information. The user name will be included in the URL of your Freewebs website, so be sure to use one that reflects the intended use of the website.
Scroll down to the section of the Freewebs page labeled 'Select a Template for your Site.' To the right of that, there is a link reading 'Use Advanced (HTML) Mode'--click that link. Then, input the CAPTCHA words in the graphic box, read the terms of service and click the 'I Agree' button. Then, click 'Create My Site' to continue.
Select the Freewebs website hosting package you want on the next screen and click the 'Select' button beneath it. If you intend to pay for the ad-free or advanced hosting, make payment as directed. When done, you will be taken to your personal website account page. To begin creating your website with HTML code, click on the blue 'Edit My Site' button.
Create the home page of your Freewebs website by clicking on the 'Edit' button next to the file 'index.htm.' The edit button looks like a paper and pencil. Freewebs provides some basic HTML code to get you started. It is a good idea to open your website in another window or tab to look at while you are working.
Change the HTML title tag to the text you want displayed in the browser bar when your website is loaded. This should include the title and description of your website and keywords that people will search for. Within the
tags on the Freewebs edit page, you may input meta tags such as keywords, description and author information. If you are using a cascading style sheet (CSS) to design your website, include the HTML code for it (
is the correct HTML code to include a CSS file). The 'style.css' should be the name of the CSS file itself. If you are using a CSS file for your Freewebs website, you must upload the file to your account.
Copy and paste the HTML from a template found on another web design website if you found or bought one you like. If you are not using a template, you must change the HTML code on Freewebs by editing the page files. The web page editor gives you a basic WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) editor at the top of the screen. You can change font size, style, color, make text bold or italics and insert hyperlinks and images with ease.
Input your own HTML code using the standard tags and attributes if you do not want to use the WYSIWYG editor. Use and tags for large headings and sub-headings of diminishing size. All basic text paragraphs should be bound by HTML tags. Images can be inserted with the HTML code. All image files must be uploaded to the Freewebs account before including them. Click on the green 'Images' button on the account page and upload the graphic files there.
Complete the HTML code for your Freewebs website index file, or home page, and click the 'Save' button at the top left side of the screen. It looks like a small, blue computer disk. The Freewebs account page will load again. If you want more than one page to your website, click the blue 'add a page' link and repeat the steps to create your own website with HTML code.
