HTML Help

Postby Ruutu15 » Sun Apr 26, 2009 12:56 pm

I have a project due in a web development class that must be turned in by midnight tonight. Per the directions, I made a 7 page website. I then tried to zip my main folder, which includes all 7 html files, and submit the assignment. However, it will not accept zip files...only html. Is there something I'm missing? How can I merge 7 pages of content into a legible one-page html file? Am I missing something here?

I didn't see this until just now...sorry.

FWIW, you can not combine 7 html files and any images you are linking to into "one web site file".

I think your professor/instructor is an idiot.

Let me know what he/she wanted...I'm curious as to how this turns out and what file format they want.

You know...I've seen instructors try and teach web design or request their students to put together a web page for an assignment...and the instructors don't have the slightest idea what they are doing. I see it all of the time...and it pisses me off. They shouldn't be teaching it if they don't know what the (Frank) they are doing.

I agree. I emailed her yesterday, and spoke with other people in my class who were having the same problem. She never responded to my email, but that was likely due to it being the weekend. The other weird thing that I noticed is that the place we're to submit the file is for journalism students. It will only accept one file, and the filetype has to be either a word doc (or something similar), a pdf, or a single html file. I ended up sending it to my student services department, which is acceptable, but I shouldn't have to do that. I still haven't had a chance to speak with my professor...she hasn't returned my emails or phone calls.
