HTMLHelp Forums _ General Web Design _ Where to get started with sharable content creation?

Posted by: JasonK Nov 6 2017, 02:24 PM

Hello,
Thanks for reading this post. I hope it is in the right spot. I am brand new to HTML and I am working my way though the W3School exercises and enjoying it.

I am hoping to build some content that incorporates websites, images, and text and that can ultimately be easily sharable on facebook, twitter, and Instagram. I want to start with something very basic, see Example1.pdf. Ultimately, I'd like my family members to be able to:

1) Go to my website.
2) Select a sharable template (like example1.pdf).
3) Be able to upload images and fill in the text portions.
4) Then share it on social media.

My questions are:
1) Can this be done?
2) If it can be done, where should I begin doing my research to learn how to do this?
3) I've been reading about image mapping, tables, and canvas, am I headed down the right path?

Thank you so much for all your help. I am excited to figure this out and am enjoying everything I am learning.

Best -
Jason

If I get what you want to do half right, you're in for quite a lot of server side programming. If you don't want just anyone to be able to create pages you need some kind of registration and login. Then you need the specific user's page to be created. And then you need an interface through which they can edit it. The two latter not necessarily in that order. All of this requires programming and probably a database.

Maybe an existing blogging service could be used for this, if the login is shared among the family members.
