you have learnt fully how header and footer works let us quickly talk about wapka paging and linking.
Wapka Paging and Linking!This is the greatest challenge every wapka newbie is liable to face as a starter. we have created our header and footer and now our homepage is empty. no new page have been created and we haven't learnt to link.
If you visits other well created wapka sites like Wealthyhome. if you click on music you will be taking to music page and if you click on apps you will be taking to apps page. this is the work of wapka paging and linking.. The amount of page you can create in wapka is unlimited provided you have content to put in these pages you can keep creating pages even up to page 1,000 or more.
Wapka deal with page and that's why everything you do you will need to create new pages.
How to create new page on wapka site Let us start by creating our first page on the homepage.Now go back to your site homepage. in case you don't know what homepage in webdesign is "it is the landing page of every website." the page you first reach when you visite any website.
From the homepage which is empty for now click on edit site or use the drop menu.
Select new page which is the first among the options and a new page will appear after clicking on new page
Type Homepage in the site name area though you can name it anything but just follow this instruction first. now after putting in your page name you can align it to be In the left side or right side.
Scroll down and select visibility for this page put your visibility as in ADMIN mode. that means no body will see the page expect from you the admin.
make it accessible to free access
now save your page!....
Hmm. isn't that great your first page will appear on your home screen like bellow.note users can not see this page but only you the admin....
Why do we create our first wapka page this way?:- This page is created and made visible to only admin so that all other pages will be created under the first page to make our admin mode look nice and not rough .because it will look rough creating pages all over our homepage so the first page will be the home of all other pages.
You can create other pages under the first page so that when you want to manage these pages you will easily find them since you know where you created all your pages.
Now from that your site click in the page you just created and you will see that the page is empty because no content is added yet.
Check the URL of the page you will see something like+++ http://your site.wapka.mobi/site_1.xhtml
the one (1) in the URL simplifies that that it is the first page you have created and any other page will be 2-3-4 ------ and so on. and if you check under this site 1 you will still see the same :EDIT SITE: under the page and the usual drop-menu… at the top of the page......
What you must note is that the :EDIT SITE: which you use in the homepage is only for the homepage and this :EDIT SITE: you see under this new page you created is only for this page .i.e each new page you create it will have the EDIT SITE function under it and that one will only be for that particular page.
More explanations If you want to add or remove any content from the page you create you need the use the :EDIT SITE: under that particular page.let us do some practicals of what we am trying to explain so you won't be confused .
Now go back to the homepage which is the landing page of every wapka site....it is were your site users first see and by default it ID is 0(zero)
Click on the first page you created titled homepages and you will land on the empty page after opening .
Now Click on :EDIT SITE: at the bottom of the page or use the drop menu. let us add Text to this page so after clicking on :EDIT SITE: select text from the options and a new page will appear as bellow.
now write whatever you want to write and submit or save. open the page you will see the text you just added on that page.. like here I wrote my text As 'LEARN WAPKA FROM KENNEDY' and i chose my alignment as center and bellow is the screenshot of how it appears.
but this text won't appear the first page of your site which is the homepage because the edit site option through which you added this text is under site ID 1 and not via site ID zero.(0).
In our next tutorial we shall continue!!!
