How To Make AWESOME Lenses –
I’ve spent the day scouring Squidoo for the best “How to” and help lenses that can help all of us make better lenses. I have found some fantastic lenses about HTML – both beginner and advanced – lenses that show how to use CSS with Squidoo lens creation to really make your lenses pop, and lots of lenses about images, tips, tricks, and tutorials. You might want to bookmark this post for future use. If you’re like me, you’ll be visiting these lenses quite often.
Squidoo Help Lenses
I found some super lenses today that I added to my own swipe file for future reference. As I was reviewing them, I realized that many of you might like to have this list too – especially my One Week Marketers 😉
I am going to break them down into sub-categories for easier reference and I am listing the straight url. Thank you to all the lensmasters that took the time to make these lenses – they are AWESOME!
Squidoo HTML Help Lenses
HTML is a type of web page code that allows you to make your text bold, or in italics, or underlined, or bigger, or a different color….or ALL of it at once. These lenses are a ton of help learning basic HTML for those that are new and for more advanced users who want HTML techniques to really wow their readers.
Squidoo CSS Help Lenses
CSS is another type of coding that can really make your lenses stand out. While at first glance CSS looks intimidating, it really isn’t. These lenses are a lot of help for learning and using CSS on Squidoo lenses:
Squidoo Module Help Lenses
Ah, the magical modules Squidoo gives us to use to make our lenses truly unique. Just yesterday, while making a new lens, I saw that yet again Squidoo has improved the module area in our workshop. They upgrade and improve over there so much that it is close to impossible to keep an online How To Squidoo Guide up-to-date.
Check out these lenses to learn more about modules – whether it’s trying to figure out what the name of a module is, where to find it, or how to use it, you will find the info you need here:

Squidoo Linking Help Lens
