    I want to start a website with a forum; It will relate to a few things that I am interested in and should look really nice (Professional status).

    I just obtained a copy of Quark (I'll get photoshop soon) through unnameable means and want to use it with my average experiance to make my website pages, which I will in turn upload to whatever host I choose (I was looking at Host Monster). I know how to put all of the images and text in, and am currently e-mailing a few hosts and phpBB to find out how to make their software work, but I'm uncertain on how to do a few things in Quark.

    1. What are the rules behind creating a link? I right clicked on an image and went to "Hyper link" and put down a URL for it to connect to; but how do I name each page under a hyper link? As in, how do I give each page a web address for the hyper link to connect to? How do I convert text to a hyper link?

    2. How do you set the type so that it does not lay down its own background over the image underneath?

    3. How do I make the pop-down menu button work? What about the "image button"?

    I recommend you adobe dreamweaver. Go and download the trial version and give it a shot. You will learn it after a week also go to this site:
    http://www.w3schools.com/
    there are many good tutorials. and also search on google for Dreamweaver tutorials.
    good luck!

    Each page, depending on where you put them on the host, will be at the address www.yourdomain.com/yourpage

    You can use this as the URL for hyperlinks.

    Alternatively, some WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) programs have options to make a hyperlink that links to a page you have just created, without the need for a URL of sorts.

    For better explanations of this and your other problems, I suggest you consult the help documentation of Quark and/or find a good tutorial.

    I just got Dream Weaver....now to learn how to use it :?
    Of all the wonders in the universe, none is likely more fascinating and complicated than human nature.

    "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."

    "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence"

    not a fan of dreamweaver , if u want to learn to develop websites properly (as a professional) do it from scratch. Even if its for a bit of fun Id recommend doing it without dreamweaver, but up 2 u of course. Even if your code is wrong dreamweaver 'alters' it to work... gd for u in the short term... but it produces naf code.

    Just to I can provide an alternative, get on the w3 site and learnt the tutorials on html and css.

    Also, im making the asumption youv never made a site before here so sorry if im telling u to go basic. gd luck

    Forums are pretty easy to install to your website.

    I like dreamweaver when using the option of splitting the page between visual and code, however you can't see when writing .PHP files.
