HTML5 Page Structure – Coding a Blogsite.

This tutorial is connected from the previous HTML5 tutorial, the “HTML5 Boilerplate“.

In this tutorial, we are going to use the downloaded HTML5 Boilerplate and we are going to do basic page structure code of a blog.

First off, remove the “Hello world! This is HTML5 Boilerplate” in the body section of the index.html file.

Then, we are going to add a header tag with nav tag in the body section of our index.html file.
<h1>Our HTML5 Site</h1>
<li><a href=”#”>Nav Item #1</a></li>

Next, we are going to use the main tag. Main tag specifies the main content of your HTML5 website.

In the main tag, we are going to use the article tag. Article tag is the perfect element in creating a blogsite. It represents the component of a page, self-contained composition of your document.

It is really made for a blog post or a chunk of post.

<h2>Blog Post Title</h2>
<p>Posted on: <time datetime=”2017-05-30″></time></p>
<p>Time Meta Data</p>
<p>This is your article 1 blog post. You can add any paragraphs in here or any some sort of a diary that reflects your blog post title. I think you are learning to create a blogsite now!</p>
<p>Meta Data</p>

As you can see we have used the header and the footer tag. As we have mentioned from our semantic elements post, header and footer tag are not only for the main section but it can also be used in any paragraph document in your html5 file.

There you have it, you have created your own blogsite. You can add also add another article by just adding new article tag at the end of your first article tag.

On our next tutorial, we will be discussing about HTML5 Time Element. Stay tuned webbies!
