J’s~Visual Learning

This is the thread to come to if you want to practice your html skills, learn how to copy and paste links and many other things on you putr. Hey, you can even learn knitting or sewing. You just let me know what you would like to learn and I will see if it is possible through youtube etc. I will add a few ‘how to’s’ each day.

Remember this is a classroom so no idle chit chat. It is okay to help teach each other…. oh, chewing gum is okay.

    Question! I cleaned up my computer and i think i may have overdone and inadvertantly disabled that gizmo needed for pdfs to show up. Does anyone know what it would be that I would need to enable to get the pdfs working again? TIA!

    Does anyone know how to take a snapshot from a youtube video? Do I need a special program?
    Thanks in advance.

    Christine: I think if you just stop the video and do a screen shot. You may have to ‘trim’ the parts out you don’t want, though.

  7. Margaret~~ to copy and paste a url from a website where you find some interesting infomation…

    When you visit a website, at the very top of the page you will see a location address… in here it is the one that has the W …and beings with http://… You take your mouse and left click on the address. It will highlight in blue…put your cursor on the highlighted address..right click and a box will appear… go down the box and click on COPY…
    The address is now in your mouse and ready to paste where ever you want to post it…

    Now go to the comment box where you wish to post the link… right click your mouse in the comment and another little box will appear…just click on PASTE and your link will appear. There you have it… If you want to practice some in here, I will check them…Good luck.

    Margaret, what did you do? LOL

  10. snoopysleuth says:

    Margaret, you can practice and play in this thread…. don’t give up. Once you copy and paste, it is like riding a bike, you wont forget how… You may not have much skin left on your knees at first… but I have lots of bandaids..

  11. snoopysleuth says:

    God love you….you did it!!

  12. Sarah…to make a link for videos etc, here is the code…

    a href=”paste url here”>Title here</a

    Put that exact code between two brackets <'s

    You can practice here at my Visual learning… it is listed under the banner at the top…

    by brackets, I mean these..><…just reverse them.. one at the beginning and one at the end.. If I put the entire code here it will not work..

  13. Don’t mind me – I thought I would try something just to see if it will works.

    <div id="content" style="font-color:#000080
    Snoopy’s happy corner

  14. Pippin, it seems wordpress only allows administrators to use color and larger fonts.

    I use this code for color but I cannot put it inside brackets or it will show color…I can’t even break the code with an asterick

    font color=red then /font
    font size=5 then /font

  15. hah I’m just now seeing this. I thought I did it once here already and thats why I was practising. Ok I just scrolled up and I did do it here but I can’t see the original syntax because once you hit enter it doesn’t show. That is if you do it right. Do you see where I put Snoopys happy corner? Thats in blue.

    also how would I put a smiley here? I saw that you and I think it was Newbie had put one in her post the other day.

  16. gosh darnit if I could only see the syntax of Snoopys happy corner I did above. I know I can do color here Snoops I did it before.

  17. ha ha…..well now I know how to make words disappear in a post……giving up for the day. But I’ll be back she threatened!

  18. Clearly I’m failing

  19. Don’t understand

  20. I think only administration can do the colors… Pippin

  21. Its not that I didn’t believe you but it must’ve been a fluke when I did it above. Look where it says Snoopys happy corner – its in BLUE!?? And I’ve was able to put in larger font size too in one of the cafe’s. How about smileys? Can I put them in?

  22. It looks like mauve to me…


    I used 000080 and get blue

  23. Yeah see its blue that means I can do it if I could remember the syntax. as you know I can’t see it on my end.

  32. Sarah says:

    Yoo Hoo! It worked. Now, if I can only remember what I did…….

  33. Your problem was is that you were not enclosing your codes within the brackets… or tags… < is a beginning tag…you just reverse the direction of it to end the command to the puter…thus an end tag..

  34. >b< reverse the tags with the b in the center and see what happens… You must close off the puter command by enclosing the following within brackets…/b

  35. Sarah says:

    Snoops; does it matter if a href has a space between the a and href or not?

  36. yes, you must put a space between a and href

  37. Sarah says:

    Lets’ try again…..

  38. I just checked your code to put in the link and you did it correct… Bravo! You can practice in here to your heart’s content so you can get used to posting links to websites and youtube…

  40. Sarah says:

    I see what happens now. When I paste the url; for some reason it erases or deletes the ” at the beginning. Whew….. I just had to retype it. Thanks Snoops……but I might try again to make sure.

  41. Sarah….make sure you put the ” in after the a href= then paste the url to the right of the ” and put another one at the end of the url…don’t forget your closing tag…>

  42. Sarah says:

    Got it by golly!

  43. Yay Good Job Sarah

  44. In case anybody is interested this site has tutorials and example text for every kind of html code you need.

  45. Sarah says:

    Just practicing again to make sure I can still do it………(oh gawd, here we go again)

    I see what I did wrong when I was trying to post it under other articles. I forgot the outside brackets! I have placed a huge yellow stickie on my forehead to remind myself from now on. This isn’t rocket science. I guess I like making things more difficult than they are…….grrrrrrrrr……..
