How to Build a GoDaddy Website

How to Build a GoDaddy Website


– Hey, everyone, I’m Emily. – I’m Darlene. – So you’ve decided to
build your website yourself and that is really awesome. – Yeah, go you. – But you should know that within the do it yourself category there are different options some a little more difficult than others. – Yeah. – And just like if you
were gonna hire a pro to build your website for you, there are things you
need to consider, budget. – Your time commitment. – What’s your technical know-how? – And then the complexity of your site. – Yeah, and today we wanna talk to you about those do it yourself tools, the differences between ’em, so that you can pick what’s
best for your business. (upbeat music) – So with the DIY website builder options, there’s gonna be an easier route. It’s obviously more template-based, a little bit more drag and drop, you’re gonna see the layouts there and you’re gonna pick and
choose what you want out of it. – Yeah, everything’s
right in front of you. What you see is what you
get with a template-based website builder and we’re
not saying you can’t have an amazing site using one of those, just know that there might be
a little bit more restrictions and some customization that you can’t do. – Yeah, some design elements that you might not get out of it. It’s a little bit more paint by numbers. – Yeah, so you’ve looked at some of the DIY template-based site builders and maybe you know that
they’re not gonna work for you. You already know your business enough, you’ve considered design elements that you’re gonna be using on your site and you know that you need
something a little more advanced. A do it yourself WordPress
site is a great option. – You can extend the
functionality of your site using plugins which are
applications that you’ll install in order to make those
features happen on your site. – Yeah, and we should
mention that WordPress itself is a free product but you are
gonna need to pay for hosting to support your website. So there is an additional cost. – Yeah, and the main difference between a DIY website
builder from a company is that you’re gonna be able
to contact their support when you’re needing help
with something for it and then versus WordPress where you’re kind of moving out of your
parents’ house for that one. – Yeah, it’s and open-source
product so there’s a lot of information you can find
online when you have questions but you’re not gonna be able
to call WordPress for help. So there are a couple of
options if you’re gonna build the website yourself. We’ve got the easy DIY
that’s template-based, a little more restrictive, and then there’s a more advanced option. – Yeah, you can go the WordPress route which is gonna take a bit more
time to get familiar with, you’re gonna have to
do a bit more research but the sky’s the limit on that one. – So get out there and
start building your website. I’m Emily. – I’m Darlene. – Thanks for joining us. (upbeat music)

Creating Randomized Web Animations with CSS/Sass

Creating Randomized Web Animations with CSS/Sass


When I started working on this ocean, I
started teaching myself how to do a staggered affirmation with CSS with
these bubbles. But I quickly discovered that there was something very uniform and not natural about having about having a loop where you’re just saying like hey, maybe
there’s a one-second delay between when each of these animations have these
bubbles and so I was like oh I wonder if there’s like something in Sass where you
just introduce a little bit of randomness, and your code can be clean
because you’re not actually just coming up with random numbers. So you can see
that it’s just a random number, but you’re also not doing very uniform delays. And that’s actually what’s going on here. I can switch back to my code and I have this bubble class where I have written this loop that goes through and add animation
delays to each element in the scene that has a classic bubble and it adds a delay that you’d expect of like, you know, it basically increases, the delay increases
by one second for each nth child, so like the third bubble it’s gonna have a delay of
like three seconds. But then we’re also doing some fun Sass random math where I’m asking Sass random, it’s gonna let you define a range for your
random number, and it’s typically one to another number. And I really wanted it to
be between zero and one because I didn’t want there to be huge differences in the delays. So I wrote random ten and then times it by point one, I’m adding the
necessary syntax of it has to be, I want it to be n seconds. I think it gives it this
nice sort of organic feel without actually being a
complicated solution.

Kaleigh Moore. She’s a freelance writer that creates blog content for eCommerce platforms
and stores. Welcome back to yet another episode of Honest
eCommerce, I am your host, Chase Clymer. Welcomed by… Wait, not welcome. Joined by… (laughs) (laughs) Annette Grant. And today we are bringing
to this show a great, separate perspective. This is a new one, everybody. Today we welcome
the show, Kaleigh Moore. Kaleigh Moore is a world-class copywriter. She’s worked with some amazing brands and
I’m gonna let her kind of give her own intro and let you know who she’s worked with and
why her expertise is so cool. Welcome, Kaleigh. Thank you, guys. It’s so nice to be here chatting
with you. So I’m Kaleigh Moore like you’ve said. I’ve been a freelance writer for about
five and a half years now. And I mostly work on blog content. I’ve done a little… A few
different types of writing, but that’s where my focus is. And I work with folks like Shopify,
Bigcommerce, Bigcartel and then I also write for eCommerce industry blogs. So places like
A Better Lemonade Stand and Copyhackers and Conversion XL. So lots of blog content, lots
of research, lots of writing. Question. Right before the show, I was working
on a blog and I’m like, is this freaking even worth it anymore in 2019? (laughs) So, can you help me with that? Because social
media is everywhere. I’m still doing these blogs and tagging it and is that still worth
it? Yeah, so that’s a big question. But the short
answer is yes. Of course, I’m a little biased because (of) the work that I do so I see the
value in it definitely very clearly. But I think that the short answer to that question
is, it’s still a great way to teach and educate on what you know. It’s a great way to build authority and ethos.
And it also helps with your SEO and your PPC efforts. So if that’s something you’re working
on, it’s still very much helpful in regards to those efforts. So it does a lot of things but I think the
primary value in creating blog content in 2019 –so right now– is that it’s a platform
for you to share what you know and to tell stories and to connect with your audience
in a way that you can’t really on social media or maybe in an email newsletter or things
like that. It’s a different place for different types of context and it’s… I think it’s
still really valuable. Good. Now I feel better about the time. Yeah, yeah. That was time well spent. Oh, absolutely. We put out a blog, one blog
a week –we try to– here at Electric Eye but it’s a little bit easier for us to come
up with that plan and that strategy because we’re… Our customer avatar is pretty well-defined
and we know what they’re looking for on the internet. It’s essentially tips and tricks
and essentially everything that’s found in this podcast is what they’re looking for.
So from a store owner’s perspective, –and they’re selling physical goods– do you have
any tips to help them curate their content strategy and how to come up with stuff that
will be engaging for their customers? Because I always feel like that is such a hard concept
to direct… I’m gonna use a terrible example now. A shoe company, they’re selling… I was waiting for the shoe company. Chase
uses the shoe company pretty much on every episode. (laughs) I’m not reinventing the wheel. I’m lazy. Alright. (laughs) It’s a theme. I like it. Cool. So I’ve got this shoe company. We sell
shoes. How do I start blogging? Yeah. So I think the first thing always is
to do –the best companies and the smartest companies that I work with do this well–
is they go to their target audience and they ask them directly. Like, “What do you want
to read from us on our blog. Give us ideas.” And so crowdsourcing content ideas that way
is a really brilliant way to jumpstart your ideas on what you should write about because
you’re going right to the people you care about most and asking them what they want
to learn from you. You can also study what your competitors are
doing. You can think about it from a keyword perspective. If you’re trying to rank for
certain types of shoes or different types of customers who are shopping for shoes, you
can take that angle. Or you could also talk about what’s happening behind the scenes at
your company and use it as a way to kind of break down the virtual walls between you and
your customer. So I feel like sometimes it’s hard when you
have an online store to get people to really understand who you are and what you do as
the person behind the brand. And a lot of companies do a really great job of using the
blogs as an illustration of their company culture, of a day in the life, what it’s like
to come up with the idea for a product, to get it from point A to point B… There are a lot of different directions you
could take with those things. But I think the big thing is to make sure that it’s story-based
and make sure that it’s relevant to the target audience and that they are actively giving
you feedback on what they want to read from you. So that you’re not just winging it or guessing
at what people want to read from you, you’re always making a data-informed decision as
far as strategy goes when it comes to the things that you write about. Well, that’s it. We can stop right now. That
was the best answer I’ve ever heard about how to come up with that strategy. I thank
you so much. Go back and listen to that again, anyone that listening to this podcast. Hit
that 15-second rewind thing a few times and listen to that again. That was chock full of value for sure. Thank you. I do have a question about guest blogging,
is that still something that’s relevant also? Asking other people to provide content? I think so. Yeah. Okay. Because your own blog is like your company
megaphone, right? You can blast out content there all day, but it’s a little bit one-sided
sometimes. So you’re usually talking to the same group of people day after day. But when you guest post, you get that opportunity
to get in front of a new demographic, a new set of eyes, who could potentially share that
and then you get shares that way, you get new eyeballs that way. So I think that again, from a link perspective
as far as increasing your SEO and helping those things, –which I’m not an expert on,
by the way. I just know enough to be dangerous– but I know enough to know that guest posting
is good for increasing your quality score, as far as Google is concerned. And (it) helps
you also get in front of new audiences. So I think it’s good for both of those things. Yeah, Google likes those backlinks. Mm-hmm. Awesome. So I think this is a good time to
get into how that content looks. So what are you finding these days… What’s the best
performing content that you’re helping people create for their blogs. So there’s two main categories. Number one
is the super long-form, in-depth evergreen content that takes a million years to write.
It’s full of research. It’s got tons of examples and screenshots. And it’s just really valuable
for anyone who takes the time to sit down and read it. It’s usually a lot more expensive
to create or to outsource or to even write yourself. It takes a lot of connecting the dots, I guess,
and finding interesting things to say, maybe, that hasn’t been said before as far as data
is concerned or as far as making new points about how to do things or illustrating concepts
or “how-to’s”. How to optimize a landing page or how to perfect your product page or something
like that. So that’s the first category and those do
really well because they’re just really valuable. They’re extremely interesting. They’re really
well done. And people end up sharing them a lot because they are so great. The other type of content that I’ve seen really
do really well as kind of the other end of the spectrum. And that’s content that’s kind
of fun and silly. It’s usually short-form. It’s usually full of jest and memes. It’s
very pop culture-centric. And those can do really well too, because people connect with
them and it makes them feel like the company gets them or the brand gets them. It’s hard to nail. You definitely have to
have a specific type of brand voice to be able to do those so it’s not for everyone.
But if companies do this well and can be really engaging with a conversational tone in these
types of posts, I’ve seen those be really successful. You hit something there that I want to talk
on again, –I preach this all the time, especially when I’m talking live– There’s two ways to
create content. It’s either going to take you time or it’s gonna take you money. Mm-hmm. There’s no other way about it. It’s you’re
either investing that time to make something awesome, –and even with any marketing strategy,
honestly– you’re either learning that skill yourself or you’re paying someone that has
that skill already to help you accomplish your goal. Right. That’s so true. Hey, if you’re in the product making business
then we’ve got great news for you. Katana is here to make your life easier. There’s
now a Shopify app built and designed for merchants that make their own products. Manage your sales, orders, raw materials,
production schedule, inventory, and material purchasing all from one dashboard. The name
of that app is Katana. Katana is designed for makers, crafters, and
small manufacturers selling on Shopify. Until now, product makers selling on eCommerce have
had to settle with messy spreadsheets or regular inventory management software. We know they both usually suck if you need
to make your own products. Fortunately, Katana is built from ground-up with the needs of
a small manufacturer in mind. Production, scheduling and inventory management has never
been this easy for Shopify merchants. A recent survey shows that 93% of Katana users
say they love it because of the ease of the setup and how intuitive it is. To try Katana for free sign up at www.katanamrp.com
or search Katana on the Shopify App Store. There’s a 14-day free trial. You do not need
a credit card. And when you’re signing up, use the promo code honest to get 30% off your
first three months of a paid subscription, Check out Katana today. I’m going to ask a question and hopefully,
you’ll be brutally honest about it. From a store owner’s perspective, if I’m going
to go out and hire a freelance copywriter to help me with some blog posts, what type
of budget do I need to have in the bank before I even ask them to help me out? What do you
think the baseline is for the starting of a blog post? That’s really difficult to quantify for a
couple of reasons. Okay. Number one, it depends on the type of content
you want. If you want the super in-depth, expert-level post, –number one I just talked
about– that’s going to be quite a bit more expensive. And those are typically, I would
say, going to cost you anywhere from $500 to $2500 apiece. And that really just depends on the expert
level of the writer that you’re hiring, how much time is required, the length of both
the research needed, all those types of things. If you’re looking for a shorter form, and
you’re on a tight budget, I would say you could get a writer with a little bit less
experience –maybe 1-3 years– for anywhere from $100 to $350 per post. So I think that those are pretty safe ballpark
ranges as far as what to expect when it comes to those two types of posts, it varies a lot.
And rates are always changing based on the writers’ experience level and the results
that they produce, the value that they can bring to the relationship. So it’s hard to
say for sure what it would cost. But I think from my perspective, those are pretty realistic
ranges. No. We appreciate that because I think it’s
something that store owners get bogged down in the day to day and if we can at least give
them a starting point, that’s helpful. Like, “Wait a second. What’s their time worth versus
hiring a professional to help them with an amazing post?” Yeah. And obviously, that’s an investment.
Do you have any tips or tricks or just ways that you see people that maximize the value
out of this content that they have now curated with a trusted partner? I get this blog content
back. Other than just slapping it on my blog, what should I be doing with this? Yeah, so I think that there are a couple of
different things you should do. Number one, if you have an email newsletter, you should
definitely be sharing that content with them, with your subscribers. Their inbox is still
a pretty sacred place. So if you have this really great, helpful piece of content, definitely
share it there. Of course, you have your social channels.
You also have an opportunity with social advertising maybe to get that content in front of the
right customers for you and educate them in a new and interesting way. You can also use it to start positioning yourself
as a thought leader. So if you’re looking to get bylines with bigger publications or
industry type blogs, that’s a piece of work that you can showcase. It’s like, “Here’s
what we’ve been doing. We’d love to collaborate with you on a future project. Take a look
at this and see if this kind of aligns with what you guys are doing.” And so when you have those really great pieces
of content that you can put in a portfolio, I think it ups the success rate on those opportunities
quite a bit too. So it’s long term and short term outcomes as far as how to share it or
where to share it. But I think you can also use those as a springboard for future opportunities
as well. Another place I think it would be interesting
to use too is if it’s that long-form blogs is if you could break that down into some
individual YouTube videos that go along with the brand, too. I think it would be an interesting
place. I mean, when you have a well-written piece
of content, it’s a script for a video, essentially. You just got to change the verbiage. I don’t
know. I’m a terrible writer. Or, if it is long-form, I mean, you could
dice it up into 10 different YouTube videos and then 10 different email blasts depending
on how involved… Especially if you’re making a large investment in it for sure. Or an ebook or a full course. I mean, there
are a lot of things that you could do to repackage that content. And I think that that’s a really
great way to get extra mileage out of those. Yeah, I’ve been trying to find it in the show
notes and that reminds me. So there’s an awesome piece of content by Gary Vee. And it talks
about how he takes his keynote, –he calls it “keynote content” which is essentially
his daily blog or when he speaks– and he turns it into 12 other forms of content. It’s
a really cool way to show you how to take a good piece of content and then create other
content from it and get the maximum value out of it. Absolutely. So where can I find these freelance
writers that would be a fit for me? I’m actually going to be honest. I don’t even think I’ve
hired any yet. I’ve just been interviewing them. And it’s all been word of mouth. But
where else can I go with it? What’s a crowdsourcing site for freelance writers? So I am pretty anti sites like Upwork or Fiverr
or places like that because that’s where you get the people who are really hungry for work.
They’re very new to whatever it is that they’re doing. Those aren’t going to be your subject
matter experts, most of the time. There are exceptions to that rule, but a lot of the
time, it’s kind of a race to the bottom for who will do it the cheapest and the fastest. So if you want to really great quality writer,
I would say, go to your community that you’re part of and start asking for a referral. Maybe
go to the industry blogs that you really admire and see who has byline there and maybe poach
writers from those sites (laughs) if that’s what you’re wanting to do. I think that happens
quite a bit. But I don’t see a lot of people talking about it. Poach is kind of a dirty word. But it’s a
great way to find writers who already do great work and that you know you like and that align
with what you’re trying to do. And then the other thing is, just look at people who are
doing great work within your industry or with other merchants that you admire or maybe even
your competitors and see who are their writers and what are they doing? Are there people that you can connect with
who would have good ideas for linking you up with really high-quality writers who are
a good match for your type of business and have the right subject matter expertise. But
always remember that those writers for hire sites, like I said, they’re a scary, dangerous
place to go. Because what happens sometimes is when you
hire those writers that just want the cheap and fast work, you get these outcomes that
you’re not happy with. And so you end up paying somebody else to do it over again or you’re
frustrated by the quality and you put it up and it’s just kind of lackluster results.
So just something to keep in mind. Like I said, there are exceptions to that
rule. But referrals I think, are always the best way to get recommendations for writers. As someone who does work with a network of
freelancers, you need to be very honest and receptive to their feedback. You need to tell
them what you want, They’re not mind-readers. They don’t know what’s going on in your head. You can’t just go, “I want to blog about shoes.”
You got to be like, “I want this type. Here’s five examples. Here’s what I like about them.
Here’s what I don’t like about them. Our tone of voice is this. This is how we like to do
X, Y, and Z. You can get even as specific as, “We don’t use apostrophes. We don’t shorten
words. It’s going to be would not. It’s not wouldn’t. Yeah. You gotta let people know how you want your
content to look or you’re gonna have a terrible time. For sure. I think that it’s a major red flag
if you don’t have those things in place for the freelance writer that you’re hiring. So
yes, it’s always good to include as much direction and as much specific detail about the writing
project that you can, so that you are sure you and your freelancer are on the same page. I think our brief document for writers is
like two pages long. That’s great. Yeah. I love that. Well, we’re trying to do good stuff over here. (laughs) It sounds like it’s going well. That’s, that’s
great to hear. It is. Support for today’s podcast comes from our

the eCommerce store owner, do you have anything that you’d like to share before we pivot to
this other topic that you had here at the bottom about subscriptions? I think it’s a great opportunity –if it aligns
with your brand– to really have that personality that I talked about a little bit earlier and
to have a very conversational tone. eCommerce store owners as independent business owners
have this great opportunity to really showcase a unique brand voice. And so to miss out on that opportunity is
kind of a shame. If you have the company culture or it’s part of your brand voice to speak
in a fun, pop culture-centric way, I say do that because I still don’t see a lot of brands
doing it. I feel like there’s a big opportunity there as far as capturing attention and really
connecting with audiences. Like I said, to break down those barriers
that are so common in the eCommerce environment. Yeah, I mean I just… One last note there
is like, people want to buy from people. They want another real human on the other end of
that transaction and that they’re not just giving their money to a faceless entity, one
of those bigger box stores. You’re helping the little guy. It’s a small business. Everyone
enjoys that. Yes. For sure. That’s a great way to connect
with potential customers and to just really stand out in a lot of noise to be that unique
brand with that unique personality. Awesome. So Kaleigh, now it’s bonus material.
She’s got some insights into subscriptions. One of your clients is finding success with
Recharge. What do you have to share about that? Yeah. So I feel like there’s such a huge opportunity
with subscriptions right now. Even companies that I would not think have a subscription
opportunity are finding them. And what’s so great about that is the sustainable revenue
for the business. Monthly recurring revenue, it’s a great way to increase customer loyalty. It’s a great way to get customers hooked on
products. I’m just constantly amazed by how much is possible when it comes to subscriptions.
And like I said, Recharge is a platform that integrates with Shopify and I’m seeing a lot
of companies use it, and finding, “Oh my gosh. There’s this huge window here that we’re tapping
into where, now we’re not only selling one time products, but we’re getting subscriptions
where people are buying in for six months at a time or three months at a time.” And in doing that, you can upsell on, here’s
what would make your subscription better. You can do interesting things like, allowing
some flexibility so people can customize their subscriptions which boosts retention for long
term efforts. There are just a lot of interesting things
that open the door to as far as revenue goes and customer retention goes. And I think if
anybody is interested in subscriptions, definitely look into that. I think that that’s something
we’re not going to see go away. I think that’s going to continue to grow as a trend. Absolutely. We actually had Rob from Recharge
on not too long ago and it was an amazing episode. Very insightful. Just the one thing
about subscriptions… And it’s gonna… It always goes back to making sure you know what
you want. You got an outline like what that subscription looks like for your business.
And it’s a lot more than like people can get this thing more often. There’s a lot more
that goes into it. Right. Right. (laughs) Yeah, there has to
be a bit of functionality and need for a recurring order of whatever your thing is. It can’t
just be, “Hey, buy this thing every month.” You know, there has to be a bigger value equation
in there. Yeah. And then we start talking about bundles.
It’s like, “Oh, my gosh, what’s going on here? Is the first shipment free? Is it not? What
about free shipping? How would that work?” There’s so much to consider there. Cool. So
in the pre-show, you spoke about an awesome piece of content that you want to share with
our audience that can help people out with beginning this journey. Yes. So, it’s very basic but I think it’s
gonna be really helpful for a lot of people potentially listening to this podcast. It’s
called How to Make Your Writing Sell Stuff. And so you can use the tactics that I’m talking
about in this blog post on anything from product pages, to email marketing, to your blog posts.
It just has some good ideas for writing content that converts, that gets you more sales and
get you more customers for your business. That’s awesome. We’ll make sure to link to
that in the show notes. Yes, Should I just send out emails that say,
“Buy my stuff.”? (laughs) (laughs) Wouldn’t that be great? Right. Just keep firing out, buy button, buy
button, buy button on the email? Yeah. (laughs) Well, no. Thank you, Kaleigh, for being on
the show. I’m excited. I’m gonna check out the blog post, immediately following. We will
make sure to link to that and we thank you for your time. Thank you, guys. You were a fantastic guest. Thank you so much. Thanks. We can’t thank our guests enough for coming
on the show and sharing the truth. links and more will be available in the show notes.

[#17] What Is CSS?

[#17] What Is CSS?


Styling with CSS has set a lot of time for web developers. Styling of HTML document describes, how HTML element is going to look in a browser. Now, what is CSS? CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet. It is used to define the style of web page. You can apply style to any element of a web page. You can apply style to any element directly or can use external file for it. Let me show you the basic syntax of CSS rule set. For example, if you want to add style to p element. You have to write it like this way, p then open and closing curly braces. And CSS rule inside it for the color to green and font size to fourteen. The p is the selector and on the left side of the rule set, it is a property and on the right side it is the value. There are three ways of adding style to a project. The first one is Inline. In this way you add the CSS rule set directly inside the element tag like this. This may be used to apply a unique style for a single element. The second is adding Internal style sheet. It goes directly into the head section of a webpage. The third method is adding CSS by external file. And this is the method, we will be using in this course. Link tag is the tag used to add or link external style sheet into your document. And there is no closing tag for this element. Let me show it to you. I need to open the brackets editor. OK. I will continue with simple business page project OK. Lets create a new file with style dot CSS. So all of the CSS will go inside style dot CSS. Let me added to the index dot HTML file, link, relation, style sheet, type would be text and CSS and href CSS and then style dot CSS. So this is the way to add style dot CSS into HTML file. Now we have added our external style dot CSS file In the coming lecture, we will be applying CSS to our simple business web page. See you there. Thanks

CSS Intermediate: Creating a layout with sidebar, navbar.

CSS Intermediate: Creating a layout with sidebar, navbar.


hi today we will see more HTML words and
more CSS grammar let’s create a website which involves a navbar footer sidebar and
some main content probably some list of articles imagine you are building a news
website or some website which involves lots of articles so I’m going to create a navbar of
black color I want the navbar background to be black color I want the footer
background to be black color as well I want the sidebar to be in blue color
and in between there will be lots of content or articles and this color I am
going to give it background white this will have white color this will have
black color this will have blue color and this will have black color as well
and I can enclose the entire thing in a container I am going to enclose the
entire thing in a container which will have some background color of grey this
will have background color of light gray probably you could use div tag for
header for footer for sidebar and for the main content and you could give a
particular ID you could give a div tag with the header ID you could create a
footer with a div tag ID footer you could create a sidebar with the ID sidebar
all this can be div tags instead of div tag we can see alternate HTML tags that
are much more meaningful so I am going to use header tag here I am going to use
here I’m going to use footer tag here for sidebar I am going to use something
called aside A S I DE, aside so these are tags that are part of HTML which
makes much more sense it’s optional if you don’t want you could use div tag and
for the main container I am going to stick with something called article
there is something called article tag this will be under article tag these are
the basic tags that we are going to create let’s create them in our HTML
document since my last video I am suggesting VS
code editor in VS code editor there are plenty of extension I like this
extension live HTML preview and when I press ctrl Q s I will get a live review
I’m going to create my HTML file now in my desktop index dot HTML and this is a
basic structure that I’m going to create and I’m going to create the container
div tag which will have all the header sidebar the article main content and the
footer so these are just empty so I’m going to create empty tag and I have
given the ID I have for our div tag let’s see the output and I press ctrl Q s
else I see the preview everything is empty
so it’s blank so I’m going to give a header heading so website name it
appears so I’m going to give sidebar and now okay so sidebar is there and an
article I’m going to create section tag section is just like div tag but it’s
semantically meaningful under section I’m going to create h1 which says it’s a
title of it and there will be a description so I will create a P tag
then let’s have a button a like button I’m going to copy this section and
repeat it so just like assume it says like Facebook post or some news website
articles and in footer if you see copyright thing that you see normally
and when I just do that you get that symbol and I’m going to write this time
so I’m good let’s write it just in our HTML page
so under style I’m going to apply the style for our app container I’m going to
give the background color to be papaya if I like the color papaya whip so yeah
so now it’s applied so the color is there let’s give the color for our
header tag for head I said that I’m going to give black color
if I give black color the website name thing will be hidden so I
need to give the color of the text so I can give the color of the text using
color white now I need to Center it so I’m good to Center it using
text-align:center so go everything center I’m going to
apply the same style for footer so I changed it to footer now both are same
since both of them share the same style I don’t need to write like this I could
instead use this syntax header comma footer which means both these things
share the same style anyway I’m not going to use it so let’s have separate
styles for both header and footer and header I don’t want the text to be
aligned Center I have different plans for header because we need few
navigation links like form profile thing on the right side corner let’s do that
so I’m going to create an app tag which is much more meaningful and in nav tag
I’m going to create you ul which is unordered list you could see the preview
on the right side it is coming as home about an next next line as a
bulletin items so I want to remove that so let’s change the style of UL I’m
going to give list-style-type:none so that has removed the bulletins thing and
but now both are in the different lines I need to make it inline I need to make
it in the same line so I’m going to give the display inline when I make display
inline you see that everything comes in the same line now I want to align it to
the Y to the right side I want to make it flow to the right side let’s make the
nav block flow to the right side it has floated but it’s but it is messed up
still let’s let me try floating h1 to the left side or it doesn’t fix it has
totally messed up this over flow thing can be fixed using something called
overflow I’m going to make it hidden now everything works so it is flowed to the
left and that is to the right I need to give some margin because for the now it
is a little bit messed up okay now it’s good margin top anyway I’m going to give
margin because I want to apply the margin to every side because near the
abort there is no gap now it’s now there is a gap so just margin would imply
margin top left bottom right I will make a separate video you will see that and
4la also I’m going to give a little bit of padding padding is just a gap
on all four sides now it’s much better looking so home and about it’s much
better now and in head head were in each one also there need to be a gap on the
left side see on website is stuck to the left side thing so I’m going to give
10px but there is a problem when I give 10px for h1 tag it is also applied to
the h1 of section title as well you could see that when I do the C you do
you see that so but I don’t want the margin left 10px applied to the hedge
fund all the h1 tag I only wanted to be applied to the h1 that are part of
header tag so I could specify the syntax called header space h1 which would mean
all the H ones which are under header tag all the child or grandchild or grand
grandchild under head tag will have this time so I’m going to apply follow the
style and applied to all the UL so that so now this would mean apply this style
too only you will off now tag this is the same thing here as well it would
mean apply the style for all the child of nav and you well let’s write our sidebar style so I want
the sidebar to be of background color grey I don’t want it to be blue so let’s
apply gray ah but it’s too dark let me make it lighter I’m going to use hex
code and this code is bit specific and also let me apply padding so now I have
plied the padding:10px on left right top and bottom and I’m going to make it flow
to the left now it looks much better and there is an issue with the post that is
attached to it let’s see that later now I want to make a margin and in the gap
between the header and the sidebar so I’m going to give a margin bottom to the
header so there is a margin between the header and the sidebar so margin bottom
now let’s come back to a side bar inside sidebar I want to have lots of link I
want to have yeah a list so inside list I want to have section
subsection which an user could click but I don’t like the default style there is
a gap by default there is a padding I want to remove that and also I want to
remove the underline thing which we will see so I don’t want the bulletins thing
as before I want to remove that bulletin thing so I’m going to say list
style type none now it is removed now there is a gap that unnecessary gap I’m
going to remove by default it seems like it comes with ul so I’m going to
remove that I’m going to make it 0 so now it has overwritten let’s change the
style of the link so for the a tag I am going to change the text decoration
because I don’t like the decoration that is underlined let me give text
decoration style and see if it works no so I think it should be just text
decoration so let me give it just text equation and it works and also let me
change the color I don’t like this blue maybe I will give some other color teal
so ok now it works and there is something called pseudo
class pseudo class is a class that are dynamically given to the elements so in
this case whenever some an user hovers over a tag this pseudo class however is
given so now whenever and user you hover over it the color will be pale violet
red so the syntax is a colon so colon is how you define a pseudo
class there are different set of pseudo classes we will see few and we rarely
use pseudo classes and let’s come back to article so articles is the main
section where all the posts are there I am giving it a overflow hidden now without
overflow:hidden you see it is it moves around now it looks perfect little bit
perfect now let’s style this section section is each post you could say
section is each post I want each post to be distinctive just like in facebook
with background white and with some border and and with little nice cap so
the background is nice the background color is white let me have a little bit
of padding a gap on all four sides so I’m going to get padding:10px now it
looks much okay I want to give a border so I’m going to give a border of 1px
which is the width and then I’m going to say if it is solid or dotted or
different type of border and I’m going to say gray if I don’t give gray it will
take black and I don’t like gray so I’m going to give this standard F 0 F 0 had
a hex code that I like and also I want to give a margin I don’t want a margin
on the top because header already has applied a margin so I want to apply zero
margin on the top and on the left side and right side or free section I want
the margin to be 4px and on the bottom I want it to be 2px
so for if Martin has three things the first thing refers to the top margin
margin top the second one refers to the left and right and the third one refers
to the margin bottom I will make a separate video for Margin difference
between margin and padding you could see that will be my next video
coming back and let’s apply the pseudo class again here so I’m going to say
section first and let’s say if it is the important section I’m going to make it a
border so first cell is her pseudo class that that is available for us like first
style there is also large child so I could do last child if I want to say in
the specific child I could do that it might be useful when you want to
highlight specific like a priority or task it may be useful now just apply
however it’s nice I like this style so I’m going to apply the colon however
thing I’m going to increase the font size of all the h1 tag inside section
tag this would mean all the h1 tag whether the h1 is the immediate child or
the grandchild or the grand grandchild it will have the font size h1 the
immediate child of section tag here are H 1 P tag and button tag let me create a
div tag which is again an immediate child inside the div tag I will have
another h1 tag which is a grandchild of section tag so this will also have the
font size 26 pixel which is not the expected thing that we want we want the
font size 26 only applied to the immediate h1 heading we could do that in
CSS by using this particular symbol so when I say section space greater than h1
it would only apply to the immediate child so in our case h1 this h1 is the
immediate child of the section let’s apply some styling for footer so in the
footer there is no gap between the footer and the side and the article so I
am going to give a margin top 10px now there’s a gap no that looks better so there is an issue I want the side but to
be a full width I want to I would show you a different way instead of saying
overflow:hidden and all that and float:left
I would say the display is stable since so this is going to make it display just
like a table sir now you could already see the sign but is looking like a table
set now this article is also looking like a table cell but the width is not
enough I want the width to be of 100% so I’m going to say the width of article is
hundred now it occupies all the entire width that is available so this is
another way you could write and finally I want to style our button tag so I’m
going to style a button tag with color pale violet red and I like the color and
I’m going to give a border radius sorry border with 2px and solid just
like section tag so and also I would don’t want any background I’m going to
make it transparent and let me give some padding not margin I don’t want to give
him margin I want to give the padding on left and right should be equal and top
and bottom should be equal so on top and bottom I just want four pixel on left
and right I want it eight pixel so that’s perfect now I want to give a
border radius so I’m going to go three pixels five pixel I see you will see the
difference whenever I give the border radius you see a little bit on the
corners a change on the corners so now this is much more rounded and I mean I
like this border radius lets stick with that so that is button tag and so far we
have completed most of our basic style intermediate level styles that are
available in CSS I hope you found this video useful
