HTML Basics Dicsussion



It’s alive, haha… html intro :slight_smile:


use the blockquote or (conrl+shift+9) type within the block


GOOD DAY FAM!!! hope everyone is filling their noggen


if the page pulls up completely blank you may have the same issue i had with my title but elsewhere in the code. I also did the exercise from the video and had issues with getting the google search to work. here is the one i did that did work for me in the end


When I try an insert my image file no matter what I seem to do the image does not show in my website we are working on? I keep getting my alt text with no image? I have tried various images and even copied and pasted them exactly yet I seem to have the same outcome.This is what I have inserted in Atom:

Flowers in Chania


Put the image in root folder or check for the path of file… put that path in the code.


My bad. Cannot see the code in my above reply. Only the same outcome I keep having with the alt tag.


what is root folder?


what does this mean lol its not really affecting anything that i can see but its always there at the bottom of my browser console

The character encoding of the HTML document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the page must be declared in the document or in the transfer protocol.


Hi guys, from what I am reading many of you are concerned about the IDEs and/or text editors. I can tell you, from my personal experience, that the best IDE or editor you should use is the one your tutor/teacher is using, especially if you are new in the field. Because that way you can more easily understand the concepts you are learning instead of getting frustrated with why this or that not working, by using something else.
Anyways, that’s just my view of the problem of IDEs. However, for those of you who like to try different things anyway, I would recommend Brackets. It’s very nice and easy to use editor if you starting with HTML, JS, CSS or even Python. But as I mentioned before. You should better trust your tutor and use what he does.


Hi buddy, a root folder is the folder, where all your data you are working with is stored. For example if you have your folder named: course_html, where your .html file is located, that is your root folder.


The folder in which the your website or .html file is saved.


Ok. Now I get it. Thank you


Thanks for your help. Now I understand.


Why Ivan does not mention and include !DOCTYPE hml in “our” HTML code?


Ivan confuses me again a bit in a video Image and Break Line. He is closing image tag with forward slash which is not the case in other tutorial articles, therefore it seems that everyone else is closing image tag without that forward slash (see what I mean under Empty Elemnts on this link: So, I assume we can close this img tag either way?


Doctype is not compulsory to write… it’s written just to tell the browser that the document type of the file is html… that’s it …if you don’t write it … browser will automatically understand that thing… browser are now good enough to understand this thing.


Thank you, I appreciate it. Some tutors are claiming that doctype should be included in to a code to avoid possible problems later (but yes, I understand that it is not strictly needed, it is done just out of precaution).
And btw regarding closing image tag, it can be closed with or without forward slash as I assumed. Thanks again:)
