Please take a minute to introduce yourself...

How did you start writing/programming for the web? I started today. I'm a complete novice and I've been watching (don't laugh) Youtube to design my own website for free. I follow instructions well and know a few things about the internet. It's program designing that is difficult. Many years ago I could just use a template, uploaded it to the web browser and it was all done. Now it seems I can't do that. So, I'm starting from scratch.

What kind of web-related projects do you work on? Just this website. I have so many questions. I have the first page done but it looks boring. Where are all the fancy fonts? Can I use a template once I've started designing everything with HTML? Heck, are there any templates? How do I get a second page with HTML?

Do you have any other interests? I'm an online English teacher looking to do a small startup business. I have so many ideas and so little experience with HTML. HELP! smile.gif

Hey there Darin my names Beau I'm new to the web design language I'm trying to get into this because it's very intersting and challenging in a way. Why I'm contacting you is because I'm looking for some pointers just some foot notes and where and how to take my first step in this computer world. As far as I know you can start your formating on Notepad but, how do I go about previewing what I am creating???

I preview my work in a browser. If I'm doing anything with page layout or design, then I preview in all the browsers I have on my system, and then borrow a system with MSIE to make sure it doesn't butcher it too badly.

How is it that I go about doing all that. I am a virgin when it comes to these things.

Start with installing the latest versions of all browsers that run on your system.

First figure out how to display that file you made in Notepad in the browser you already have.

Since I'm not on that platform I can't tell you . . . maybe you can drag'n'drop the file on your browser, or use the File>Open menu.

Then try some tutorials.

Bgomez1990,
It is very interesting and challenging, and becoming more so everyday. At least I find it to be.

But Notepad? These guys with all the pip's under their avatar can build a web page with their monitors turned off. I, on the other hand find an editor, like Dreamweaver, to be a pleasant and helpful aid. I've said it here before and I'll say it again: Though I use code view extensively, design view is among other things a quick way to view your work and a much appreciated tool for my development. The website development that is.

Notepad isn't a bad choice actually. Maybe it's a matter of disposition, but I actually learn and understand better when I have to type everything manually. You know, a little like when in school taking notes made more of it stick, even if you never looked at those notes later. When you learn a new (computer) language typing also forces you to take note of all the details like how quotes are used, different types of brackets and parenthesis, case and whatnot. When you leave something out or do something wrong otherwise and it doesn't work you notice it's there and what it is and hopefully you'll remember.

In the long run using Notepad is not very efficient, though. Rather you should use a more advanced text editor with features such as a clip book, so you don't have to type common code snippets again and again.

Yeah it also helps to have syntax color coding of some sort.

Sure, but that doesn't matter for the fundamental value of typing markup or any other kind of "code" when learning.*) You don't learn quicker or better because you have whiz-bang editor.

Finding a favourite editor isn't an easy task either, takes time searching and testing. Maybe it's better to use what you already have to begin with and spend the energy on learning. Once you are a bit on the way you also have a better picture of what you look for in an editor.

*) Later you type because it's quicker. happy.gif

My name is Chris Martucci. I'm a senior in college (graduating this month). I'm 22 years old, and I live in Saint Augustine, Florida, with my girlfriend. I spend most of my time reading and writing for my blog.

I know some html and css (enough to get by). This forum has been very helpful so far.

I was a dog trainer, a good friend of mine was also a dgo trainer. She quit and gave me her website and company name. I learned to code on the fly. The site was beautiful but this horrible mess of frames inside of frames inside of frames. (Her controlling ex-husband tried to build it so no one else could edit it, lol)I knew absolutely nothing about computers, but began learning out of desparation. I remember spending most of a week at the computer, slowly going through the coade, deleting one tag at a time to find it on the page, and then put a comment before the tag. I started to learn what some meant. smile.gif

Now I'm working on a website for my fiance's business. I'm learning more every day!

Other interests are sidewalk chalk art, pumpkin carving, and piano.
