Whichever option you choose to create a web page, you can point your UofM home page to it (see above).
Step 1: Find your web directory
where $USER is your user/logon id.
example: if my user/logon id is "paulfm" then it would be /my/paulfm_www-menet/ You can just copy and paste this line:
Windows/Mac users should see:
Connecting to ENET shared folders (H:, G:, R:, V:, W:, etc)
NOTE: you want to connect to W: - WHOME
Step 2: Create a file in this directory called "index.html".
NOTE1: the files names MUST be all lower case (or they won't work).
NOTE2: if you have an index.html or index.shtml file in your webhome folder
- it will be listed in the MEnet Home Pages list
if you don't want it to be in the list, use index.htm or index.stm
Step 3: Put the html code for you home page in
Step 4: Test your web page. From any web browser open up the following URL:
Note that while
may work as well, this is an unsupported feature
and WILL stop working at some point in the near future, so you should only
advertise your home page as
(and have that point to http://www.menet.umn.edu/~$USER - until you can move it to a better location).
You might want to check a local bookstore. There are many volumes about the Web and HTML that could be useful.
Image Maps: Here are some quick instructions for creating clickable image maps.
The first step is to add something like the following to your .html file:
<A HREF="my_image.map"> <IMG ISMAP SRC="my_image.gif"> </A>This html code will display your image and create a link to your .map file (sort of).
The next step is to create your map file,
This file defines areas of your image, and what link to follow when
the mouse is clicked in one of these areas. Here is a sample
default lake.gif circle photos/water-ski.gif 44,48 64,30 circle photos/watermelon.gif 77,77 62,100For more information on the format of the image map file read the mod_imagemap documentation from the Apache web server (2.4) page.
