  • @FatimaMohammadi Interesting point about the dark web - in some ways it is closer to the original ethos of the web.

    Your point about not being able to access some content on the web freely without sharing more data than you are happy to is also good.

  • A great start to your page @DianaMartinez. Could you try adding some different headers too?

  • Good work @DianaMartinez. I wouldn’t include the tags with their descriptions in the page too, I think that bit is just a little confusing!

  • @KainBygraveDavies How big or small did you make the page?

  • Do some of the adverts and data collection mean that the original ethos of the web has been weakened?

  • Hi @stephenlivingstone, welcome to the course! I hope you enjoy seeing how websites work

  • Welcome to the course @DrDheerendraSinghGangwar! I hope you enjoy it and find it interesting.

  • Good work @ChadJ.

  • Welcome to the course @FatimaMohammadi. I hope you enjoy it, and enjoy creating your own web pages.

  • Welcome to the course @BerkeUslu. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you make your decision!

  • Good work @KhalidaAmarkhail. Could you use the CSS for your quiz page too?

  • Hi @KainBygraveDavies. Did you just look on trinket or did you open it as a website?

  • Great - that’s just what you’ll be doing for the rest of the course!

  • An interesting take @DianaMartinez. Have the different strategies and technologies used on the web now affected the free exchange of ideas?

  • Welcome to the course @HwaidaKutish. I hope you enjoy the course, and best of luck with your career!

  • Welcome to the course @DianaMartinez. I hope it helps you develop your skills for your dream job.

  • @KainBygraveDavies Well done!

  • Good work @ChadJ.

  • Great work @AphiweZulu

  • @MoniqueRaquet What do you mean by “what their internet browser provides them, based on algorithms”? Generally speaking the browser is not choosing what content to show.

  • Welcome ot the course @MoniqueRaquet. I hope it helps you develop your skills and you enjoy it too.

  • Welcome to the course @ProsperUdo. I hope you enjoy learning with us.

  • Yep, you can only have one element with a particular id on a page.

  • Nice subtle styling @KhalidaAmarkhail

  • Hi @RaniYadav. Wordpress isn’t really a suitable platform for this course, as it hides a lot of the HTML and CSS from you. You could try http://codepen.io/ instead.

  • Great work @KhalidaAmarkhail

  • Hi @AbidaShirzad, welcome to the course. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you to develop your skills.

  • Thanks for elaborating @MinervaB.

  • That’s good @KainBygraveDavies. If you want to centre the image, this might help: https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_image_center.asp

  • Hi @ZainabQasemi. A good first try, but there are a few problems. Your quiz should be in the same trinket as your climate change homepage - the index.html should not contain quiz elements.

    All of your radio buttons for one question should have the same name, otherwise the user can select mutliple options.

    I’m a little worried about your numeric question…

  • Good work @KainBygraveDavies. When would you use a class and when would you use an id?

  • Nicely done @ChadJ.

  • Nice styling @KainBygraveDavies. In-line styling can be a bit quicker and more “obvious” at first, but it’s good to move on to CSS later.

  • Hi @KhalidaAmarkhail. Your links to the homepage and quiz page go to the trinket, not those pages. Check the section in this step about using internal links - you only need to use the names of the HTML files.

  • This doesn’t appear to contain any JavaScript @giuseppeammaccapane

  • Welcome to the course @ChidubemAnthony. I hope you enjoy developing your web development skills.

  • Today is the last day that I will definitely be facilitating this course, however I may check in at some points during the next month. In any case, we don’t facilitate around the clock, so even during our facilitation periods you may have to wait a day or two for a reply.

  • Hi @KainBygraveDavies. Almost there, but your link back from your quiz to your climate change homepage goes to your trinket, not to the actual homepage. You only need "index.html" as the href for that link.

  • That’s great @KainBygraveDavies. One question though - are you wanting people to be able to click more than one answer in your last question? If you are, you should use checkboxes, not radio buttons. We don’t cover those in this course, but you can find out more here: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_type_checkbox.asp

  • That looks good @KainBygraveDavies, and the picture seems to be there too.

  • Good work @ZainabQasemi. You’ve just got an extra space in your <!DOCTYPE HTML> at the start, and you’ve got your closing </body> tag too early - it should be the last thing before your </html> as everything that you want to appear on your webpage should be in the body element.

  • Welcome to the course @AsmarDarwish. I hope you find it useful and enjoy developing your skills.

  • @ChadJ. Good work, but could you make sure you remove your in-line CSS?

  • Hi @KainBygraveDavies. That’s a good start, but your list opening and closing tags don’t match up. You start with <ol> but end with </ul>. Your list and blockquote also shouldn’t be inside paragraphs.

    Hope that helps.

  • How do the big companies affect that freedom then @KainBygraveDavies ?

  • Welcome to the course @KainBygraveDavies. I hope you enjoy learning more about HTML, and developing your CSS and JavaScript skills.

  • Hi @LizPromo. I can’t see any ids in your CSS there.

  • Hi @ZainabQasemi. You’ve got a spelling mistake in your first tag, which should be <!DOCTYPE html>. At the moment all I can see there is a title in your header - which doesn’t appear on the webpage. You need content inside the body section for that.

  • Welcome to the course @CarolineDrum! I hope you enjoy learning web development skills.

  • Good work @ChadJ. I like how the styling seems to fit with the theme of the site.

  • Hi @LizPromo. I’m sory it’s not explained in the step, but that is not how you apply two classes to an element. You need to include both classes inside the same class attribute like this:

    h2 class="city ccity">Dhaka</h2>

    Hope that helps!

  • Welcome to the course @NajlaKhaliqi! I hope you enjoy developing your skills

  • Welcome to the couse @InnocentRashilo. I hope you find it useful and enjoy it!

  • @LizPromo Later this week you’ll learn about how you can give uniqute elements ids so that you can style them with CSS as well.

  • Welcome to the course @MohamedAwad! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

    Are you teaching in England? If so, you can get free upgraded access to this course through Teach Computing: https://teachcomputing.org/courses/CO221/introduction-to-web-development - although we’d hope you continued teaching afterwards!

  • @LizPromo I don’t know, it sounds like a problem with Trinket so you’d have to contact them.

  • Welcome to the course @NargisNazari. I hope you enjoy developing your skills!

  • That’s not bad reasoning, @MichaelEbunsi - but CSS also lets you keep consistent styling between pages on your website, not just on one page.

  • Welcome to the course @AsmarDarwish, I hope you enjoy building on your existing Computer Science knowledge.

  • Welcome to the course @SwathyJ, I hope you find it useful.

  • Glad you are enjoying the course @SwathyJ

  • Great work @ChadJ.

  • Well done @ChadJ., it’s good to use the help that trinket gives you to show where you have HTML errors.

  • Hi @ZarminaAfghan, this isn’t your Raspberry Pi fanpage.

  • @ZarminaAfghan This doesn’t appear to be what we asked for - there’s no image, list or blockquote.

  • Welcome to the course @jayj. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

  • Good work @ZainabQasemi - just one minor problem is that the list shouldn’t be inside a paragraph.

  • Welcome to the course @DanalynnD! I hope you find it interesting and useful.

  • @ZoyasoomroSoomro - I think you copied the wrong thing here by mistake, this isn’t a web link.

  • Great work @ChadJ.

  • Thank you @TahiraMohammadi!

  • Hi @TahiraMohammadi. The classes and ids there seem to be working nicely, but there are some odd things in your HTML, like list items outside of a list, and <a> tags without the href attribute. so they don’t work as links.

  • Welcome to the course @KhalidaAmarkhail. I hope you enjoy learning through it.

  • Welcome to the course @ZarminaAfghan. I hope it helps you reach your dream.

  • Glad you enjoyed it @MytriRajendran

  • Hi @MarinaMuhebi, welcome to the course! I hope you enjoy it and it helps you build your web dev skills.

  • Hi @ZainabQasemi. If the big companies can control the web, does that not prevent the original ethos from still applying?

  • Welcome to the course @ZainabQasemi. I hope you enjoy building your skills

  • @TIMMEDIENGUMENETTE I’m sorry, this is a course about learning to build websites, not somewhere for you to find someone else to create a website for you.

  • @TIMMEDIENGUMENETTE That is not the correct link to your work, that is the link to our version of the Raspberry Pi fanpage. Make sure to follow the instructions at the end of this step to share your work.

  • @TIMMEDIENGUMENETTE Please create your own comment to show your work rather than replying to someone else’s

  • Welcome to the course @AhmadullahTaheri! Good luck with your mission!

  • Well done @LizPromo

  • Good work @LizPromo. Did you mean for a new tab to open whenever you move to the quiz or homepage?

  • Good work @LizPromo. Could you add a quiz question (which has a single correct answer) using a text input?

    With the paragraph and list/blockquote elements the main issue is that there’s a weird thing in HTML where it’s allowed to not close a paragraph element, and so if you start another “block” element (like an ordered or unordered list or a blockquote)…

  • Hi @NasreenMoradi. Welcome to the course. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you in the future.

  • Well done @TahiraMohammadi

  • Great work @LizPromo

  • @TahiraMohammadi I can’t see any changes

  • @TahiraMohammadi Yes, I am saying that it doesn’t have enough content - it should include a few sections with headings, and a list.

  • Hi @EduardoMaldonado. I can’t see that, could you check that you clicked “publish”?

  • @MichelleHalbeisen Yes, you could create a class that you could apply to all of your photos. For example, you could add class = "photo" to the img tag you’ve used for each photo.
