Web developing tutorial using
The focus of this tutorial is mainly for beginners although advance
users might find it interesting as well.
Before I begin I would like to thank the many forums and blogs where I gathered information and tutorials on using KompoZer and one particular website is Greg Tutor website.
The first action we need to take is, to learn and have an
understanding about KompoZer. One of the best ways to learn about any
new software is by using the software. While we learn to develop our
website, we will learn to use some of the tools in KompoZer.
At the end of your tutorial, you will see a layout similar to this
one if you use my settings. Of course you might have opted to add your
own settings on the way. This website was designed fully with KompoZer
and pspad. Both
together form a powerful package and they compliment each other.
Pspad is a great all round editor for windows, it supports html,
css, xml and php for web developing. KompoZer still has a few bugs that
can be a bit challenging for users with limited or no web developing
knowledge. Pspad will help you on your way and works well with KompoZer.
The combined software is what I use to develop this tutorial.
Also bare in mind that KompoZer has not been updated for a while but it
is still a great tool to learn with.
Lets begin by openning KompoZer and lets look at the layout. The
image below is based on the latest version 0.8b4 pre, which is still
under development and with some bugs. To download the latest version
click on KompoZer.
This tutorial will take you to the beginning of a website. It will
have no layout and no style. This is the method I use to teach. I want
to teach you from the beginning through to the end, learning more as
complete each lesson.
