Hey dennyc,

Are you asking what FTP is all about? Or how to post pictures on your website?
FTP is used to Transfer Files (using a certain Protocol :-)). If your using Windows, do a search for cuteFTP, a simple windows program that uses FTP.
CuteFTP will show you two directories. One dir is on your hard drive, the other, on the internet somewhere (your web account with plus.net, in this case). You simply drag files from one to the other, and CuteFTP does the rest.
If you are feeling adventurous, click on start - run, and type in cmd
In the black box that appears, type in ftp dennyc.plus.com (or whatever your allocated ftp site is, check plus.net customer support page). Feel the horror, and begin downloading cuteFTP :-)

Thanks for the info, but I'm still baffled as to how I design my website. Up loading pictures is fine. But how do I make my page a certain colour, and how do I place the pictures?
Thanx

Ah, now that's a different area. That's HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). It's as it sounds, a language, with which you can design page layouts, colours, fonts, and much more. I'd suggest buying a good book on it, though they can be kind of pricey. Maybe try searching around for HTML tutorials?

Hi,

If you're looking for getting to grips HTML properly, then HTML Goodies is usually a good start. This will be able to answer your questions on changing page colour, and placing pictures etc. Admittedly I do little more than dabble in this area, but it worked for me a few years ago, and the principles haven't changed that much!

If this doesn't meet your needs (everyone learns in different ways) then a quick search reveals one or two other tutorials that are available on the web.

Regards,

You can design a web page, or complete site, using Microsoft Publisher , Micrososft Word or a wide variety of similar programmes and then "save as html". The saved files are then FTP'd to your site.
