Using Yahoo! Pagebuilder
Yahoo! Pagebuilder is a point-and-click page editor used to construct pages in the Geocities system.
This page explains how to do that.
- If you are trying to add HTML for a webring that does not require you to make any change, go straight to Add HTML.
- If you are trying to add HTML for a webring that requires you to copy a graphic to your website or modify the HTML, just continue with the next section. (If you need an explanation of why you must copy graphics to your website, see this page.)
Copying a Graphic to you PC
- Create a directory to hold the webring graphic. I like to use a directory named "temp" that I put on my "desktop". But the directory can be anywhere on your PC as long as you know where it is.
- Go to a web page that has the webring graphic.
- Right click on the webring graphic.
- Click "Save Picture As".
- Navigate to the directory you created to hold the graphic (see Step #1).
- Choose a name for the graphic.
- Click "Save".
You have now copied the graphic to your PC and placed it in the directory.
Uploading a Graphic Using Yahoo! Pagebuilder
- In Pagebuilder select "Add Picture". (Note: you can also use the "File Manager". If using the File Manager, select "Upload File".)
- Note "where" you put the file on your server. You will need this name when you modify the HTML to point to the graphic.
Altering the HTML to Point to the Graphic
- Use a separate editor to edit the HTML. For example, you could use Notepad to edit the HTML. Do not attempt to edit the HTML inside of Pagebuilder.
- Look in the HTML for code that says:
- Change the information between the quotes to be the URL of your graphic. You will need to use the whole address of your graphic. It will be something like:
In these examples, "ddd" refers to the directory name that is your website name and "iii" is the image name. Images typically have a file type of "gif" or "jpg".
- After you have made these changes, you are ready to place the HTML onto your site.
Using Yahoo! Pagebuilder to Add HTML
- In Pagebuilder, open the file you wish to edit.
- Click "Insert" / "Forms and Scripts" / "HTML Code"
(In direct contravention of Windows standards, this Yahoo! tool does not provide keyboard equivalents. You must use the mouse.)
- Click "Ok".
- Save the page. You should see the code.
This page is part of a series of pages that explains how to work with a variety of such editors. These include:
News and Announcements
Changes Big Time --- It was October 2001 that WebRing.com came into
existence following the end of Yahoo! Webring. Now, 5 years later, WebRing.com
is changing again. Moving from primarily a free service to primarily a paid
service, the system is undergoing massive change. Stay tuned.
Activity --- While
Ringlink has not released a new version
on 21.Feb.2005, the system seems to be getting a lot of activity. Many people
are discovering this great webring system and moving their webrings here. If you
don't know about Ringlink,
definitely check out this great webring system. I personally recommend
--- The World of Webrings features the World of Webrings discussion list. It offers a forum for both
webring owners (ringmasters) and webring members to discuss the latest hot topics about all webrings, including WebRing.com,
Alt-Webring, RingSurf, Bravenet and others. If you belong to any webring in any webring service, you should join this list.
Passes 3 Year Anniversary --- It was 3 years ago, on 16.Aug.2003 when the WoW list list noted that RingSurf's domain name registration had changed.
Then the new owner came forward. A RingSurf Feature List was developed and debated. Then, on Thanksgiving day, 27.Nov.2003 the new owner posted on the WoW list that the new RingSurf is up! If you haven't checked it out lately, see what has happened in the last three years.
Article About Webrings --- Check out this excellent Salon.com article about the history of Yahoo! and WebRing.com:
The Strange Saga of Yahoo and Webring
. For some, it will bring back memories. For others, it will explain the history.
Now, I wonder if they will update it to talk about the latest WebRing.com
Webrings: General Information
Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
- General Information
- The WebRing.com System
- Webrings I Own and Belong To
- The Wazillion Navbars Project
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
The WebRing.com System
This subsection includes specific information about the WebRing.com system.
While not the only webring system on the net, it is the best known and the most used. I own many webrings in this system and belong to many webrings in this system. (I also own and belong to many webrings in other systems as well.) Click here or on the graphic.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
