How to create a wap site

In the era of digital technology and mobile speeds, the desire to arm yourself with your own WAP-page on the Internet is justified.

Indeed, whatever one may say, just your little island in the sea of ​​network information is simply necessary. For organizations, a corporate WAP site is a kind of business card of the company as well as a means to attract the right customers. Well, only for ordinary users of the chosen way to loudly declare themselves to the mobile universe, probably not find.

So, with the statement of the problem we decided, it remains to choose the appropriate tools and also find an easy solution. Since we don’t have any knowledge in the WML (Wireless Markup Language) programming district, we’ll have to look for something suitable, preferably a simpler visual one. Let's say the free editor DotWAP 2.0 (700 KB) from an office called Inetis, based in sunny Slovenia.

The program allows you not to think about the intricacies of WML programming in any way, providing the user with a small but sufficient capacity of the necessary tools. Manipulating text parameters, inserting images, links, as well as other elements, setting page encoding and converting images to the WBMP format closest to the WAP protocol are far from all the characteristics of this editor.

All intermediate edits (including the final revision of the document) are allowed to track for errors as well as other shortcomings using the built-in WAP-emulator. The small flaw of which is the inability to resize the virtual screen.

It is noteworthy that the developers “imprisoned” DotWAP 2.0 for their benefit of the free service, which provides WAP hosting as well as other useful services. However, it is allowed to refuse it, while all the manipulations with uploading files to the web server will have to be done manually.

In general, as our brief communication with DotWAP 2.0 showed, this editor, together with, an affordable hosting, is quite good for creating the first mobile pages and also mastering the basics of the difficult profession of WML coder.
