Creating Intro:

1. If you are on Windows - start Notepad. If on Mac - start SimpleText.

Quote (2. Add this code inside your Notepad or SimpleText.)
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Site Name</title>
</head>


<body style="background:#252525;">

<center><h1>Tittle</h1></center>
<center>[img]--Image--Link--[/img]</center>
<center><table><tr>
<td align="center"><a href="--Site--Link--">[img]--Image--Link--[/img]</a></td>
<td align="center"><a href="--Site--Link--">[img]--Image--Link--[/img]</a></td>
</tr></table></center>

<center>

Colour - HTML Tags. They open and close document. Don't delete nor touch.
Colour - Head, this will give your page a title which is visible in browsers.
Colour - Background colour. In bold is colour code which you can replace. (H)
Colour - Center tag is used to make elements, objects align to the middle.
Colour - That's content title. Symbols H1-H6 are sizes for the title.
Colour - Image code. All you have to do is place your image url in: --Image--Link--
Colour - Will make images linkable. Replace --Site--Link-- with url you need.
Colour - Table. Tr - means row. Td - means cell. You add cells inside rows.
Colour - Copyright line. Tags <small> will make text size smaller.
Colour - P tags are meant to start a new paragraph. Will add space in this case.
Colour - Br tags are meant to add a single space anywhere it is needed.

3. Click on File -> Save as... -> index.html

Uploading:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Page Editor -> File Manager.
2. Create Folder by name of "index" or "intro".
3. Upload your index.html file inside this folder.

Creating Base:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Page Editor -> Pages management.
2. Edit "Main Page". Go down till you see "Options" field.
3. Mark "Apply personal template to the page" and save.

Redirection:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Customize Design -> Main page.
2. Replace whole pages content with this one:

Code
<html>
<head>
<title>Intro</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#000000">
<script language=javascript>
<!--
window.location= "--Page URL--";
-->
</script>
$POWERED_BY$
</body>
</html>

3. Modify bgcolor="#000000" with your colour. (H)
4. Modify --Page URL-- with your "intro" or "index" folders url.

New Main Page:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Page Editor -> Add new page.
2. Create page by any name you like - Home Page.
3. If you have installed "Site News", add pages content:
Code
<?if($ADD_ENTRY_LINK$)?><div style="text-align:right;padding-bottom:3px;">[ <a href="$ADD_ENTRY_LINK$">Add news entry</a> ]</div><?endif?>$LAST_NEWS$

4. Save and go to your New-Created home page.
5. Copy the url of this page from browsers url field.
6. Go to File Manager inside your index or intro folder.
7. Click on modify tool of your index.html file.
8. Replace the link so that it would link to a new main page.
9. Save changes and you're fully done with intro.

Note: You might want to change url in your Site Menu as well.


Example: I used exactly the same code I used at first step.

Code
<html>
<head>
<title>The Best</title>
</head>

<body style="background:#FFFFFF;">

<center><br><br><h4>We all know who is the best...</h4></center>
<center><img src="http://i38.tinypic.com/w84vua.jpg" border="0"></center>
<br><br>
<center><table><tr>
<td align="center"><a href="http://www.ucoz.com/main/?a=reg"><img src="http://i34.tinypic.com/1zpl8wi.jpg" border="0"></a></td>
<td align="center"><a href="http://www.ucoz.com/"><img src="http://i34.tinypic.com/35avhpj.jpg" border="0"></a></td>
</tr></table></center>

I would use my own site for hosting pictures, but it's not done & I don't want to provide url.

Provide link to 'Main Page', yes.

No. You can change 'Title' to any name you want.

good deal arms, thanks for the info.

a question about this now, so, if i create an intro page and name it "abcdef.htm", how will the website http://my site. ucoz. com, know how to parse this page first? in other words, how can i make it go to said intro page, before going to the default/index?

and dont take offense to my other topic, cuz none was meant. just candid discussion. thanks for your help so far with this one!

Please don't short-cut my name. If you want it to be shorted, use Aros.

Read careful. There is written how your web-site will know what to display first:

i want to do this: make a intro page,from there i will put an intro,from there i will provide a link called: Skip Intro,when they click on Skip intro...they will go to my website's main page...for example: www.mysite.ucoz.com/(intro page)...people click on "Skip Intro"and they will go to: www.mysite.ucoz.com/home or whatever the main page's link is.I dont get your tutorial because i dont know this: "Get the Link and go to CP>etc..." and the 2nd thing i dont know is: "Paste the link to Redirect Visitors" that is what you said...in the CP it says: "Redirect visitors from the address http://mysite.ucoz.com/ to the address:".So if i put for example: www.mysite.do.am in that space(redirect visitors etc) it means that people who come on mysite.ucoz.com they will go to mysite.do.am...please help!!!im not an expert:D

2. Go to: CP -> Page Editor -> File Manager -> Upload the html file.

wwerko, you must copy the link of the html file you have uploaded to File Manager and paste this link into "Redirect visitors from the address http://mysite.ucoz.com/ to the address:"

That's possible. You didn't read carefully. ->

ocam, you have done something wrong & that something is: incorrect url of button 'Enter'.
