…Once you have your site created,…you want to double check it both visually and technically.…Now I can, on this Index HTML page, click on My View and preview it that way.…But really, I also want to preview it in whatever browser I have installed,…in fact, on multiple browsers.…I'm going to select Google Chrome and we can check out the site here.…And I'd say everything looks pretty good visually.…I'm going to jump into the About page.…It looks pretty good, in fact that background looks pixelated.…So, I might need to fix that.…
And really, it's because that background's being scaled the entire length of…the page because it's really long.…The portfolio section looks pretty good.…We have that edge anime piece right in there, and…then we have our contact section right in here, loading in those tweets.…So all in all,…I actually want to change the background, in fact I can do some really cool effects.…In fact, what I want to do is I want my content to scroll, but…I want my background to remain fixed.…But keep in mind, my backgrounds are different across all the pages.…
Author Paul Trani begins with brief introductions to HTML and CSS. Then you'll learn how to create a basic webpage, add text and images, and style the content with CSS. Paul then shows how to add navigation and links between pages, integrate video and social media (such as a Twitter feed), and create a contact form. The course also covers making sure your layout is "flexible" (i.e., that it resizes to fit mobile devices), testing your site, and uploading it to the web.
