Part 3
Your Second Page

Now that you have created your home page, you may be curious how you can design new pages. Let's design a hotlist as an example of how to do this.

At the acs [html]% prompt, type 'pico hotlist.html' to begin. Once in pico, type the following:

<TITLE>Jason Patton's Hotlist</TITLE>
<i><font size=+5>Jason's Hotlist</font></i>
1. <A HREF="">J.P.'s Home Page</A><br>
2. <A HREF="">Doctor HTML</A><br>
3. <A HREF="">Writing HTML</A><br>
This page is a product of <b>Jason Patton</b>.<p>
That should be a good start. Don't change my initials to your initials in item 1 of the hotlist. I want you to have my page on your hotlist. (I'm an egotist). Here is a list of all of the commands or tags used above and what they mean.

Once again, when you are done with pico, use CTRL-X to leave and then confirm that you are saving hotlist.html into your html directory.

Now we need to make this file readable on the web. Type 'chmod ugo+r hotlist.html' at the acs [html]% prompt.

Your hotlist should end up looking like this.

You don't need to do this right now but it is something good to know. To see all of the files in your html directory, type 'ls' at the acs [html]% prompt. Later you may want to know more information about the files in your html directory and you will use 'ls -la' at the acs [html]% prompt, but do not concern yourself with this now.

One other thing you need to know in the long run regarding file management: in order to leave the html directory and jump back to your main directory, type 'cd ..' at the acs [html]% prompt and that will make your prompt read acs [jpatton]% once again.

Now we need to go back to the home.html document and add a paragraph on leading to the hotlist.

Type 'pico home.html' at the acs [html]% prompt. Go to the end of the document and add on the following paragraph:

Check out my <A HREF="hotlist.html">hotlist</A>.<P>
Exit out of pico. Then go and test out the pages.
