Have absolutely no idea how to work HTML and have a website due tomorrow morning

Tomorrow morning I have a 10 page website due and I have no idea how to use HTML at all. I am supposed to be using dream weaver which is fine since I have an adobe subscription, but I was wondering if anyone could give me tips or help me get started on this website. Just any basic information that is needed would be great, the website does not need to be flashy or anything, just bare bones. Thank you!

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at https://freecodecamp.org.

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Are you just trying to put text up? What specs are you supposed to follow?

But honestly? If you have a ten page website due in one day, and you haven’t done this before…you probably should tell some one…cause this is an unwinnable situation. Perhaps go through the beginning html lessons.

This is a really weird request because you must’ve known the deadline from the beginning but haven’t tried putting anything together until now.

If you have no idea about HTML, you’re not going to put together anything meaningful that’s 10 pages till tomorrow and using dreamweaver, so there’s that. If you’re planning on not sleeping tonight you can create something very basic but at least be able to show something off.

Quick lessons:

HTML crash courses:

  1. (60 mnutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UB1O30fR-EE
  2. (53 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPnqb74Smug

CSS crash courses:

  1. (1 hour 25 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfoY53QXEnI
  2. (24 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1xBCi5SOjw

Go through them, pick only one per category. First HTML/CSS courses I linked are from the same instructor.

What you’ll probably need for your project:

  1. Divs (<div> ... </div>) which are containers, to place content in them.
  2. Paragraphs (<p> text </p>) which are usually used for blocks of text.
  3. Links (<a href="somewhere"> name of the link </a>) to create the navigation. The “somewhere” signalizes where the link should lead, which you’ll want to use to make connections between the pages on your site.
  4. Images (<img src="link to image>) to show some images on your page.
  5. Lists - UL stands for unordered list, li are containers for list items:
<ul>
  <li>List item 1</li>
  <li>List item 2</li>
  <li>List item 3</li>
</ul>
  1. Headings (<h1>Heading</h1>) to create titles for your pages.

You’ll learn them all in the HTML crash course. You won’t need anything beyond that to complete your site by tomorrow. You should also watch the CSS course to learn how to style your site. You don’t need much styling, just the basics.

Think of something easy that you can display and link to throughout the page without putting in a lot of content. If you’re studying I don’t think it’ll impress anybody since there will be a lot of repeating, but at least you’ll have something to show.

An example could be:

Homepage: List of common dishes in your country

Each page would be representing one dish, including image, text and some headings:
Page 1 - Pizza
Page 2 - Pasta

And so on...

The homepage would only serve as a list of dishes where you’d be linking so it’s easy to navigate through the site. This should get you to 10 pages fairly easily. Remember to save links to your sources if you’re copying content from the internet, you’ll probably need to provide them along with your project, I needed to anyway.
