Web page maker

  Webmake - an easy way to make quick webpages or update exiting ones!!!  
  The first time you use webmake this simple screen appears. It allows you to pre-set where webmake will most likely find your files on your computer. Webmake works with text files usually in you mydocument folder, and html files which you usually store in a separate folder. Some people prefer to store backup copies of their pages in a separate folder than new ones so Webmake allows both an in folder and an outfolder. With Webmake, you can constuct a preset copyright statement to be used with  any page you make. And finally, you can provide a mailto: address to display on your web page(s).

To change where Webpage looks for the different types of files, you can either manually type in the reference path or click on the (*) beside the entry and use the drive, path boxes to select the correct folder-path and the file list box to confirm. your files are there.

Select save to goto the main screen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  After you have set-up Webmake this screen will display each time you use the program. To go back and change your settings use the New Defaults button.
Step 1) choose to Create, Extract, Update, Split x Alphabet, or Split selectively

Create: Makes a Webpage from any text File
Extract: Makes a Text file from some webpage
Update: Combines the contents of a text file with the contents of an existing webpage and creates a new webpage from the result
Split x Alphabetic: Reads in the contents of an existing Webpage based upon which letter (A-Z) that you provide when asked, the contents will be moved to two lists and 2 web pages files will be created (one for each list).
Split Selective: Is like the preceding one only you have full control over what content goes to which list.

Step 2) Click Please sort [X] if you want alphabetic sorting of the contents of read text and html file.

Step 3) In the folder/files section there are 3 file definitions. They get set as follows:
   
* Note: Depending on the mode selected, not all 3 defines may be present also, when it says text use only a .txt file and when it says html use only .htm .
To set a file: either manually type in it's path and name in the boxes provided or click the (*) beside the file description and use the drive, directory and file list boxes to select the appropriate path and file name. You will notice, that the directory changes color for each file select type. Once you have the files selected, choose the PROCESS button to read in the files for you to adjust or you can also choose QUIT to end the program.

 
  This is the PROCESS display and is the real workhorse of the system.

The area at the top left displays information from the header section and body section of any html file read. You can edit the keywords, description and web-
title that normally only your browser sees. Beneath the browsers section is the content section information seen at the top of your webpages. Such information includes The Title at the top of the page, Who you are, the date of last change, A film # (used by ancestry sites for example), and optional Image file to show at the top right, a subtitle if page is part of many pages on the topic, and both the backlink URL and the text to display for it to be clicked.

At the top right, Is 3 options to add to the page. The first is to place or not place a copyright notice on the page. You may edit the copyright in the box provided. You can also insert a convienient A-Z click Index. And finally, you can choose to use either a table format or a non- table format for the content section. Note: in Table format, a header over the content is possible also a back link can be placed on the page. Such is not the case with non-table formats.

 
     
 
  You will notice at the start of bottom section the file you selected to write the finished page to is shown. Right under that is the place where any header over the content information can be defined.
 
 
  Working with the content section:    
  That big list at the bottom is loaded based upon your choice for text and html files with the contents of those files. Actually, for html files this section only gets the information under the header and page top section. If you selected SORT on the prior screen the content section will be alphabetically sorted otherwise the html content will be first with the text files content at the bottom. To Remove specific content lines doubleclick them in the list. To Undo all changes use theUNDO button.
 
 
  *Using extract: The extract, reads in an html file and displays all it's information. You can remove lines from the content section by doubleclicking them When you select the WRITE button, a new text file is created with only the text contents (no html codes)
 
 
  *Using Create: The create is the reverse of extract. Under create, a text file is read, then you supply the options and when you select the WRITE button a new html Web page is created under the name you specified
 
 
  *Using Split: Now here where things get interesting. If you selected Split, two list boxes at the bottom. each one will have a file name above it. There is also a new option [ ] Swap Files shown. If you goofed and named the files for the results in the wrong order you can fix this by just checking this box off. Now how split works. Split reads a single html file and puts the header and page top sections into the top define area. it then loads the left list with the contents section. If you selected Split-Alphabetically and had say given the letter H then all lines begining with a letter I thru Z would be moved to the second list.
                                **Doubleclicking items in the lists (either list) moves the item to the other list.
 
  *Using Update: Lets say you have this web page you spent hours making, you now have a text file of info to add to this page. Well it's easy, choose Update, give the html file name and path for the existing web page file, give the text path for the new text info to include. Set the output html path and filename and come to this screen with the PROCESS button. Remove any unwanted lines, and press WRITE and your done!.  
    enjoy Webmake!
