Becoming more logo I've started using the "experimental post to".

Creating a link blog was never so easy. Everything has an RSS feed, of course.

People are creating little web apps around it and whatnot.

It's hot. It is like so five minutes from now.

Student Blog Aggregator


Mobile News Aggregator

Here's how to do it:

1. Upload and configure Magpie.
2. Use a simple PHP or HTML include to stick one of the PHP templates onto your page, surrounded by some important links.

And there you have it, your own custom news page!

How Not to Use Dreamweaver

This week we covered the following topics:

How Not to Use Dreamweaver:

Taking advantage of the Mac:

  1. System Preferences > Sharing > Personal Web Sharing
  2. Then visit http://localhost/
  3. Localhost directory is [root]/Library/Webserver/Documents/
  4. Set up your Testing Server in your Site Preferences to be this Localhost directory.
  5. Hit F12 for a local preview, with root-relative links intact.


  1. Draw a Web design on paper. Armed with CSS and tables, design your site in Dreamweaver. Try Table Layout mode. Try the table button in the Insert bar. Or use Insert > Table. Use right-click (Control +Click) in the table to access menus, or examine the Property Inspector. Remember Text > CSS Styles > New.
  2. For inspiration, visit the CSS Zen Garden and try "select a design".
  3. If you get stuck, try Help > Dreamweaver Support Center.
  4. Go to Create an account. Figure out how to:
    • Add's RSS feed.
    • Add's news feed.
    • Create a blog and post to it. Send me your Blog URL.

Too easy.
