    Hello there,

    I just started out with my own website today (I'm a beginner at this, with zero knowledge about website-design so please forgive me) and Im running into a couple of issues.

    1) I just can't really figure out how to actually add a new page to my website. I know how to actually create a simple webpage in the public_html folder, but once I've created one I don't know how to add an URL for it so people can actually visit it, so the only page right now on my website is index.hmtl simply because its the default page.

    Could someone explain to me how I create an URL for a page?

    2) The second question I have is about the positioning of text on my webpage. To make it easier to explain, I will give you a link to my website:
    - Removed -

    So for example, I want my navigation bar to be aligned on the left side (right now it stays in the center) however, i
    have added the following piece of code:
    Code:
    [spoiler]
    nav {  
        height: 20px;  
        width: 100%;  
        background: #003366;  
        font-size: 8pt;  
        font-family: 'PT Sans', Arial, sans-serif;  
        font-weight: bold;  
        position: left;  
        border-bottom: 2px solid #283744;  
    }  
    nav ul {  
        padding: 0;  
        margin: 0 auto;  
        width: 600px;  
        height: 20px;
    }
    nav li {  
        display: inline; 
        float: left; 
    [/spoiler] 
    so im a bit confused as to why it is still displayed in the center eventhough I instructed it to be positioned on the left side of the navigation bar (I'm also unable to edit this in HTML editor)

    3. I also am struggling with figuring out how I can add more than 3 columns next to one another. So right now, I have 3 columns on my website, one being on the left, one being on the center, and one being on the right. But I would like to have at least four of them. I couldn't really manage to find any helpful info about this on the internet.

    Scrap question 1, I found out what the problem was and fixed it.

    I have an added problem though; text in tables have a big line-spacing which I can't seem to change....just check out my website to see what I mean. I want my text to appear just like it appears here on the forum.

    Hello :)

    Please keep in mind that you will likely receive more input on web design questions on a forum that focuses on discussion of that topic. The forums here are primarily intended for issues related to the cPanel/WHM software itself.

    Thank you.

    Hey,
    I do not have much knowledge of coding but I really would like to suggest you some other ways to design websites in HTML as I am also designing my own HTML/CSS website using a software, TemplateToaster. It works pretty good for designing HTML websites.
