HTML- Website Bugs - I Know More Than I Wanted to Know
HTML - Computer Language
The process took all day
A Challenge – AKA “Opportunity” Discovered
My HubPage hubs refer to my website which opens with no buttons. The buttons are designed to be an integral “fulfillment” for book information and to purchase my book. My website when clicked from HubPages, NO BUTTONS, NOTHING! However, when my website address (URL) – is clicked anywhere else, my website is displayed as designed.
I learned how to open HubPages and click on the far left HTML button when in the edit phase of the HubPage article. Whew! Nothing but the apparent Chinese alphabet and scrambled at that (see picture - left). After carefully examining the HTML code and clicking “done editing,” I notice when I slide my mouse over my hypertexed webpage, I see at the bottom of my page the referred website name that is the same as the book, (www.) eyeswideshutanenigma (.com) – noted this way to prevent the website being hypertexed. Hypertexed means it turns blue and when you click on it, you go to the website.
A Noted Hyertext Can Direct to a Different Address than what is Says
An example: I can direct you to my website. However, I can direct you to where I want and it will still go to my website! This ‘trick” can be good, can be bad. Many users are “dupped” into going places they would not want to go… An example, I could link my to K-Mart, Amazon when you think you were going to my site.
When a conflict occurs, the websites get confused. I had told the HubPage article to go to my book title webpage. However, my address (HTML) said to go to my original website address! In the confusion, my website was not properly displayed.
The process took all day… to trouble-shoot!
This experience reminds me of when as a real estate developer and General Contractor; I decided to draw my plans for a 100-unit apartment complex. I had the skills, and training to do so. It was not a cost effective process. It is best to use people who do their skills every day. I did this because I wanted to learn… Yep I learned to let the experts do it!
