Hints and tips

This page provides tips and suggestions to create and maintain your web pages using Camillo editor. Here you can find advice on using document files, using comments within your programs, creating text animation routines, and more.

Quick view

You can use the (Ctrl+W) shortcut keys to create and view your current web page using your default browser at any time instead of selecting the Create Web Page option from the menu or toolbar.

Text animation

If you plan to use any of the text animation routines within your web site such as RainbowText or ScrollingText it is important that you also upload the JavaScript directory to your Remote server. This directory holds all the Jquery library files you need to use your text animation routines and can be found in the main Camillo editor directory.

Syntax highlighting

The editor uses syntax highlighting, which allows you to view your program source code in different colors. You can change the default colors by selecting Syntax Colors from the View menu.

Expanding text

When using the ExpandingText command to display this text effect within your web page make sure to replace the Body section of your program with the following line of code.

<body onload="mesage()" onunload="stop()">

Project files

For best results when using images or sound samples within your pages make sure that you store these files in the same directory on your remote site as they are stored on your computer.

File names

Don't forget when saving files, there are some characters that you can't use (such as #,. @, &) that should not be used. However, it is possible to use a hyphen or underscore as substitutes for a space within your file names.

Hypertext links

To ensure their validity, periodically check your web page Hypertext links using link checker software such as Xenu's Link Sleuth or Link Checker Pro. These programs analyze your web pages or website for broken links.

Compatibility problems

When viewing your pages using Internet Explorer 10, some pages might not display correctly. If so you need to turn on Compatibility View. To do this simply click on Tools from the Internet Explorer Menu Bar and select Compatibility View Settings. Then click on the Display all websites in Compatibility View check box.

Using comments

You can use the Rem (remark) statement to insert comments within your HTML source code. It is also possible to use a single quotation mark (apostrophe) as a substitute for the Rem statement. Using comments can be helpful when you edit your source code at a later date.

Using dialogs

You can add specific design elements within your web pages using built-in dialogs such as displaying images, creating hypertext links and including text document files. These dialogs can be activated from the editor's Format menu.

Document files

If you plan to include text document files within your pages with the use of the Display text dialog, only use files that are saved as plain text (ASCII) format.
