Using the Web Page Wizard




Open Microsoft Word. Go to File; click New.  On the right side of the screen, find the category ‘New from template’ and pick the ‘General Templates…’ option, as shown below.









When you see the following screen, click on the Web Pages tab, and double click Web Page Wizard click Web Page Wizard and select OK.







The Web Page Wizard will appear!  This wizard will build all the files you’ll need for your classroom website.

Press the Next button located at the bottom of the Wizard.




You will be asked to choose a title and a location for your web pages. 



Here is my choice for a web site title.  Now, click the Browse button to find the location where the wizard should save your web pages.



You are looking at a screen that shows the file structure of your computer.  It is like a file cabinet with many drawers.  This drawer is called My Documents.  If you don’t see your folder here, you may need to drop down the menu to the right of the Look in: dialog box.  This will let you see other drawers where your folder might be stored.  We will save our web site into the web page folder.  Highlight the folder, and click the open button.

Click the open button again.





The Web site location: box will be completed for you.




Click the Next button to continue.


The Navigation type dialog box appears with 3 choices:  Vertical frame, Horizontal frame and Separate page. You will find descriptions of each choice below~













For example, let’s choose Separate page.



Click the Next button to continue.


The Add Pages step is next.  We can use preformatted pages (templates) or web pages that have been built previously.  First, let’s remove pages we don’t want.  Just highlight the unwanted pages by left clicking one time the name, and then selecting the Remove Page button.  We will remove Blank Page 1 and Blank Page 2.  Click the Next button.



Select the Add Template Page button to see the following list and examples of template pages.






As you click different choices, an example is displayed in the background.  This is illustrated below.




Select the Personal Web Page.



Now, add 4 more personal pages.  This will give you a total of 5 pages.  Click Next when you are finished.



Organize your pages by sequencing and renaming them.  To change the order, highlight the page you want to move, and select the Move Up or Move down buttons to accomplish your goal.  Change a web page’s name by highlighting it and pushing the Rename button.



The Rename Hyperlink dialog box now appears and the default name is highlighted.        



Type a descriptive name.



You can repeat this process for all pages you’ve designed.



The wizard offers preformatted themes (templates) for your web site.  Click on the Browse Themes button or check the No visual theme choice. 


If you browse, you will see the Theme dialog box.  Here you will find a list of formats and samples.  Make sure to check the boxes at the bottom for other possible options.



When you have made your selection, click ok.  Choose Finish on the last screen of the wizard.


The wizard has completed your commands.  It has saved all of your pages in the designated folder.  You have now returned to your home page in Microsoft Word.
