I will try to answer your questions as follows:
1. "Just edit your HTML code in Windows notepad"
-Does this mean I copy and paste the HTML coding for my web page from the advanced editor into a Notepad file?
2. "save it with a html extension"
-Do I just name the file after the web page, then add .html at the end?
3. "& upload it into the appropriate folder in your webshell."
-This file is the coding for the whole web page, right? How do I know what the appopriate file is?
A. You mean appropriate 'directory' not file. I should have written 'directpry', not folder. If all your files (html & images etc) are uploaded into your 'top-level' directory, then don't worry about it, just upload your html files into your directory. Some people have separate directories/folders for each type of file, or they may have multiple sub-directories for different sections of their website. Personally, I prefer to work in the top-level directoy only...it's less complicated that way, for my simple brain :)
4. My web page is added to on a regular basis. With advanced editor, when I add a new guitar tab, I just code in a link to the new tab, adding it to the already saved coding for the rest of the page, and hit "save". How would it work with this other method? Every time I want to add a new guitar tab to the page, would I have to delete the existing HTML file for the entire web page and upload a new one with the new additions added in?
A. When you do your editing in Notepad, it's essaentially the same thing as when you do it in the advanced editor. In other words, your notepad has become your advanced editor. When you are finished with your editing, simply upload the html file to your webshell, clicking on the 'overwrite box'. This will automatically overwrite the existing html file.
These might sound like stupid questions, but I need it "dumbed down" as much as possible. :-)
(if you have time to answer)
A. Always have the time for nice folks like you. And, believe me, your questions are intelligent and well expressed.
Thanks alot for your help!
You are most welcome! Incidentally, ny son plays a mean blues guitar, in the style of Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy etc.
You may listen to some of his MP3's at the following URL:
You will find two groups of his music on the above mentioned URL [Rigs & Pieces] and [Voodo Rig]. He is known as 'Bubba'. You will also find my kid brother on the same page. His group is called: [what?] and his name is Steve, and he plays & sings rock, folk etc.. Enjoy!
PS: I am going to send them the URL of your excellent website. I'm sure they will find your guitar tabs useful.
