1. Setting up a HTML document
This guide assumes that you have Notepad++ already installed.
If you are working at home and need to download Notepad++ then click here.
Save as .html file
Notepad++ assumes you are writing a text file so you must change the file type.
Click File then Save As...
Change Save as type: from Normal text file (.txt) to Hyper Text Markup Language file (.html)
Change File name: to Fanpage Website.html
These steps are necessary to set up your HTML web page correctly.
Open Notepad ++ and save your file as a .html document.
Editor vs. Browser View
In newer versions of Notepad++ click on View then View Current File in and choose a browser installed on your computer such as Chrome.
Some versions of Notepad++ enable you to view the document in a web browser by selecting Run then an option such as Launch in Chrome.
It is good practice to have both Notepad++ and a web browser open at the same time so that you can easily check if any changes have been made correctly.
Remember to press the save icon ( ) before you refresh your browser.
Don't expect your web browser to show anything yet.
