@Y77s I took screenshots as I was making the site and put it in a PPT so I could follow my own steps 😉

@RJHokieGaming No. I purchased it at SiteGround.

@RJHokieGaming I used the add domain feature in Google Sites. I planned to do that tutorial after building the entire site.

Hi. How did you change the url of your site.

User friendly – meaning when I edit where there’s a photo. The text will drop below the photo instead along side and there is NO WAY to undo it OR to correct things without cancelling and starting over, but over still puts me under and not next to the photo. I’m sure there’s tricks and features I have yet to find. When it’s a struggle, it becomes not friendly – but I’m persistant.

THANKS… Did #1 and #2… I’m using the Church Template and did what you said in #2 as to changing the heading, but the template words “church logo” remain so I assume there’s a place to insert the name I want – but can’t find it yet. Patiently waiting on next lesson… LOL…

@bhr661 Can you specify what part is not user-friendly? When you create a page, you get a button on top that says edit page. You then have an interface that looks like Word 2003 with bold, underline, justification and so on. If you let me know, I will help you or make another video.

@bhr661 I publish Websites made on Google Sites and they look correct on Explorer 6, 7, 8, Chrome for PC, Chrome for Mac, Firefox for PC, Firefox for Mac, Opera, Safari, Mobile Safari, and Mobile Opera.

@bhr661 50% of the time Websites made in Publisher don’t look right in Chrome or Firefox. If you have a Google account, click on the more option at the top and go to Sites. You have 1 choice…Create Site. When you are going through the wizard, browse more themes and you will be presented with more than 40 themes.

Okay… need to open Firefox to do as suggested – next question is where is Lesson 2 and editing google sites is not user-friendly.

and finally, if I go this, will it be visible without errors to those with explorer?

And where is Lesson 2 ???

Don’t get it – ms publisher doesn’t work in chrome or firefox? so use google free sites? But when I go there most of the templates do not appear… so I must have to close explorer and open firefox? Just not very clear to the average guy.
