A Tutorial For Adding Knowledge to Your Robot

How to Jazz Up your Robot with HTML Skins

The Pandorabots interface offers you the ability to easily customize your robot's page in any way that you like. You'll find that adding a face to your robot will make it much more personable to your visitors than the standard default blank page. And will also increase the rate of return visits which, of course, is what you want.

If you haven't added a face to your robot, you should consider doing so now. The "Skin" code is written in basic HTML which makes it very easy for you to customize. And since you can do this on-line (or off-line if you prefer), any changes that you make will show up immediately.

Creating Your HTML Skin

  1. Click on, Empty.
  2. Click on, Custom HTML (at the top of the screen).
  3. Click on, Create a new custom HTML file (it's in the body text).
  4. Enter your HTML code in the text window. When you're done, name the file, "empty" (do not type the ".html" extension in the filename) and then click on the, Save As button below.
Note: You can create multiple HTML Skins for your robot at once and switch between them whenever you like, without losing or changing the HTML data. This lets you experiment with different styles to see which one suits you best.

Editing Your HTML Skin

  1. Click on, Empty.
  2. Click on, Custom HTML (at the top of the screen).
  3. Under, Filename click on, empty.html (or whatever you named the file as).
  4. Edit the HTML code in the text window and then click on the, Save As button below. Any changes will show up instantly, you do not have to republish your robot.

The links below will take you to a working version of a customized robot page, and to the tutorial used in creating it.
