Webopac Setup - HTML

We are finally getting Webopac set up- it has it's own server, and will be updated manually.  I've waited a long, long time.  Anyway, it will be available off of the church app, and the website do in order to make it look good, I should use HTML.   I have found a number of tutorials, but it seems so complicated.  Has anyone else set up webopac in this way?  Any hints, warnings.   And if possible, could I see what you've done, and how you've done it?See More

Church libraries can make a tremendous difference by offering books of faith and virtue to shape young minds and encourage family discussion. Here are two recent children's books by a Virginia pastor, that do that very thing. Both are available at Amazon and other online booksellers. "The Calling Card of the King" is just out this month and is about a king who visits his subjects incognito. He helps them discover the power of forgiveness and love, and leaves behind a calling card that seems to transform lives. "Where Do Belly Buttons Come From?" is a delightful story that reminds us that we all are specially made and especially loved by God!

Greetings!  Just now seeing your request for "friends."  Sorry!  No apologies necessary for leaving early at Eagle Eyrie.  I understand.  Lee Smith told me he was going to post the notes to the Virginia Library website.
