Waiting for Week 5
It has been a long week for me waiting for our next lesson. I guess I shouldn’t complete the lessons as fast as I have been lately. Although I am sure that other lessons will take me much longer to complete.
I have spent my time this past week checking out WordPress (that is the power behind this blog site and provided as an option for my D9 host site) and found out things to make it easier for me to improve things. One thing I found was expansion of the blog entry box. The default is 20 lines and I found out in the settings area that I can change it to a larger area just by changing the number of lines and saving the setup. I now have it set to 50 lines which for me makes it easier to read, spell check and proof-read every blog before we post them.
I also spent some time on the cPanel of my hosting site with D9. I can’t wait to start having add-on domains and sub-domains. It all looks very easy to manage anything from just the one panel. It provides all of your hosting information for your site and all the statistics related to it also. Just about anything you need for your site is just a point and click method. You do not NEED to know HTML at all. However, having played with web sites before, it is always good to know HTML just in case you would like to modify things a bit. All in all a pretty slick deal for the price.
This morning I have been madly trying to ensure I have all my links, IDs and Passwords on my laptop so I can travel and continue working on the Marketing Masterclass. I have one of those USB pocket drives that I basically have for my photo’s. So I loaded our Masterclass desktop folder onto it so I can take it along, plug it into the laptop and I have all that information. This will become important this week I think when we add graphics to our sites. Thinking ahead I save the header and footer graphics I purchased from Planet Divinity into a sub-folder called (what else) “Graphics”.
Don’t forget to check out the links highlighted in this blog. I put them in case you are interested in them. The D9 hostings is obvious, but the HTML link take you to a site that has free HTML code for you to use on your site.

I took a look at the free HTML site you recommend. Looks good. Thanks for the info.
I’m from John’s masterclass too.
Keep up the good work with your blog.
Good to know you. I too am taking time during the day to investigate our class member sites. Looking forward to seeing and commenting on yours.
I just want to say thank you for providing the link to the free html editor site. I found your link through our forum. I have been hunting for weeks trying to wrap my head around html and this site just gave me the “Aaahaa moment I was looking for! 😀
Thank You Thank You Thank You
I am doing a Happy Dance 😆
I felt the same way when I I found the site…..can’t even remember how I did find it. But I use it all the time for reference. Unless you use those codes all the time, it is very hard to remember them. When I was selecting colors for my backgrounds I when to the color area and looked ata a bunch of them and Had the color code right there in front of me.
Thanks for writing. 😉
