HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS Adding a New Web Page Linking It All Up

How do you code the black menu bar into your resume?

In the home of your website, there is a black bar at the top of the screen that:

#1. Contains blue links on the right that turn white when you hover over them.

#2. Has your name in the left.

#3.Stays at the top of your screen even when you scroll down.

#4. Has no white spacing in the top, left, or right.

I am trying to code it into my resume page, but I can only figure out step 1. Does anyone know the code for the other steps?

Here's a few hints:

  • perhaps you could get the name on the left similarly to how you got the links over to the right
  • the position property can be used to make something stay at one place on the screen
  • spacing is generally due to settings of the margin and padding properties

You can duplicate the index.html page and remove tags inside the <body> tag. Then start building the resume between the <body> and </body>. You may have to adjust some of the <a> tags in the navigation bar, but using the index.html page as a template is pretty common. :) Since the link to the style.css file is still there, you don't need to create a new css file for the elements of the page, such as the nav bar. Hope this helps! :)
