  • Look in the BEFORE POSTING thread at the top of this forum. There are links to learning resources and tutorials in there. Start with, then w3schools. Also, the Learn tab in the menu at the top of the page.

  • Pol, it doesn't work that way. Oh, sure, there are tutorials that can show you how to create a simple page, but you've got a bit to learn first before you can build a meaningful, usable site. And you won't need a site map without, well, a site, not a single page.

    I know it may be disappointing to learn this, but Web development is not simple. It is not simply Word for the web, or DTP for the Web. It is an entirely different technology, and there are many things to learn to be effective—HTML and CSS to begin with, file systems and site management, client-side script if you wish to incorporate page dynamics... well, you get the idea.

    Your best start would be to consult the BEFORE POSTING thread at the top of the thread list. Toward the bottom you will find a very good list of learning resources. Start with Cheryl's thorough introduction to EW and page development in her extensive "Build a Basic Web Site" video tutorial. It will also introduce you to the concept and methods of using CSS to style your page. Then move on to the free w3schools HTML and CSS courses.

    You can click the New icon in EW, then enter <h1>Hello, World!</h1> between the <body> tags, then preview. There you are, a Web page. Not much of a page, to be sure, but a fully functional Web page nonetheless. Not what you had in mind, is it? This is a forum, suited for short messages, not tutorials. That's why all of the links in BEFORE POSTING have been provided. Do take advantage of them.
