Message # 1 | 3:53 PM
My problem is that so far I am working out how to add text and images but this is limited to only the lower section of the page. For example, I can see to the left right at the top,"My Site", "Home" (the page I'm creating right now), "Information of site", "Blog" and so on. This is in fact a Russian version I'm using so "Мой сайт" is what I see for "My Site".
Below all this is Latin text - Lorem ipsum and so on.... That you will normally fill out.
So, the main problem for me at this time I how do I add my own text to that uppermost part of the site? I've been using the visual editor which is probably the easiest way for non-programmers but this only allows me to add text or images below.
I've used site editors before but Ucoz is new to me. I do understand Russian but my programming skills are basic.
Hope I somehow explained my problem.

agent-008, the general procedure for this is to edit the templates of the website (in most cases, the latin text is in the PROMO global block!)

I will try to make my situation clear as possible. I selected my first page (of the template( and called it "Home". I selected the visual builder. I figured out how to add tables and finally managed to insert images in these. So, little by little, I think I can keep adding tables and texts and images, downwards.
However, the part of the template above is what has me foxed. This shows a photo of a woman smiling, the page tabs and there is a load of Latin text. I expected to be able to change the image and add my own text but the visual editor doesn't allow for this.
So, the big question: Is the upper part of the template just to be ignored? When the site goes live, does this automatically show the Yuzoz host banners and so forth?
I hope this is clear. большое спасибо за помощь (thanks for the help)

Okay agent-008, since you don't want to play it the easy way and simply provide the URL and template number, it took me some time to clarify the details myself. Since you understand Russain, then this guide will be very helpful for you.

Also, you can check the knowledge base for the questions that may appear.

Hope to make the site in Russian (with some help with language issues).

Problem part is above. The pic of the woman and the Latin text. Not sure if you are meant to edit this.

agent-008, The guide provided in the previous message describes how to edit your specific template, the Latin text, the images, the website name Мой Сайт and many more.

agent-008, yes could edit it by visiting the the Global blocks section. To be more specific and a reminder kindly study the basics of HTML since they are very helpful here in this CMS like img src, h1 tags, a href and so on and so forth. You could edit it in the "Top part of the website" global block. I hope this helps.

Thanks to all who helped. I appreciate it. Yes, I found the Global Blocks and using the tutorial posted by Gromov, I was able to change the Latin text to Russian.

I agree HTML would help a lot. I did some of that at a basic level back in the 1990s but I only remember a little.

All in all, I think the site builder is very good.

I have been struggling a bit only with the image on the global blocks. I was able to remove the former image. I was able to add my own text. However, ideally I wanted to insert a different image but nothing worked. The way I tried to do it was using an url code tag for the image.
I wonder if there is any recommended code (<img src...) I can use for an image to put in the global block. I am a bit wary of trying to change the HTML too much as I don't know programming.

agent-008, have you checked the guide sent to you? It's all there))

In order to help you, please provide the part of code where the image actually is + specify if you have actually uploaded the image via the File Manager.

Hi Gromov, I don't know how to upload by file manager. I did try last week and pasted a url into the box but this didn't work. Nevertheless, all in all, I have managed to change the global blocks code to a satisfactory level I just have text.
I did have to learn bits of HTML at that stage and it took some time to get it right.
I am now simply using the visual editor but I like the fact you also get access to the HTML.
I think Ucoz is a great way to learn some web design. I am definitely impressed so far.
The Russian in my case won't be perfect as I'm not a native speaker. Sometimes you can check grammar through yandex. Students of Russian today are fortunate as there are so many resources for the language. Back in 1992, all you had was large Oxford dictionaries.

agent-008, Here is an image that should help you to use the File Manager (+ there are lots of threads on the forum as well).

Basically, all you need to do is to log into the CP of your website - Tools - File Manager - drag the file into are with the + sign or simply click on it and choose a file from a folder. Once uploaded, scroll down a lil' bit and locate your file, click on it and get its URL, then replace the old one URL with the new one accordingly the guide.

I am puzzled by something. Here is the link:

http://asperger.ucoz.net/

Clicking on the 4th page at the top of the home page, you get "this page does not seem to exist". I am not sure why. I searched the Gobal Block section to see if I could edit the HTML. I tried simply creating the missing page http://asperger.ucoz.net/index/asperger/0-4

I guess there must be something simple. I wanted the link to produce an editable page.

agent-008, First of all, you need to create a necessary page, just a new one, it doesn't matter what URL it will have, once it's done go to the Design -> Site menu builder -> locate the necessary page and press the edit button (a pencil icon) -> select the Page Editor for the Modules in use section field -> replace the URL address with the page link -> Save.

Hi, thanks for the help. It took me hours to do it for a simple reason: The system tends to log users out if you don't save work periodically. Therefore, when I was deleting pages in the design section, the save function was doing nothing. I couldn't understand it as I was clicking "удалить пункт" but then the pages just kept coming back. Then I finally realised the save function was inactive so I logged in again.

Everything is now back under control.

This is the first time I attempted to make a website in Russian language. Of course, fortunately, resources for Russian language online are really good so I can use tools that range from translators to special translation websites. Even so, it won't be possible for me to make perfect sentences so maybe later I will find a Russian native speaker to correct mistakes. Often I have to use translit to speed up typing.
