I'm sorry for this total noob question, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. (ive only been coding for like 2 weeks)
I am making a joke website for my brothers birthday using notepad++ and my limited knowledge. It won't ever be a live website and only he will have access to it.
I am currently in the process of coding the links to some local files. I know chrome and Firefox don't allow you to link to local files for obvious security reasons. There are workarounds that I haven't tried because I want to make sure that I won't be putting my files and computer at a higher risk because I'm linking to local files through my fake website.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
