POSTING HELPS FOR RECIPES/PATTERNS

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

Remember that when you post on any of the Lusenet forums, your type won't always come out like you want. For example, have you ever posted a recipe for it to come out all run together rather than in the nice neat lines you wrote in the first place??

Here is why - This is really a HTML (computer talk for the language used on internet web pages) web-type page that just happens to have a few HTML programing built in to get you started; however, it is very basic.

You have to use some HTML programing if you want those nice separated lines all nice and neat. Here are some codes to help you:

Let's say you are posting a recipe. You enter it like it you normally would and then after you hit enter you find it all ran together. Before hitting that enter key you need to use the code:

<BR> after each line you enter. It acts as a permanant return -- BR means next line, please!

For example: instead of - 1 cup flour, 2 eggs, 1 cup milk --- you will get:
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup milk

You would add that

<BR> code after each ingrediant. It forces the next line of ingrediants to the next line, etc.

To add a paragraph, type:

<P>

Be sure and those little brackets or it won't work. I will show you some other little tricks and helps along the way, including how to add a photo and how to link another website to your text. Stay tuned!!

THANKS Karen! Will be looking forward to more help. I would love to learn how to add a picture. I design and sell alot of crafts and would like to share them, so others could make and sell them too. It makes it easier to make something when you can see what it looks like when it's done. I have gotten so many good ideas, help and inspiration from others in this web site and would like to help others. Thanks again.
