Okay. You need tutorials. There are tones of sites. This one might be off use to you:

 http://www.web-source.net/html_codes_chart.htm

I used wordpad and save it as index.html and then work all the needed html there such as linking <a href="LINKHERE">NAME OF LINK HERE</a> and pasted images on a page <img src="theimag.png/gif/jpg/wotever" border="0"> etc etc.  wink Hope that gets you started there.  smile

First step: learn basic HTML. This is an absolute must, if you want to make a decent site. Here's a pretty good tutorial.

Step 2: Lot's of people will advice you to write the HTML by hand using Wordpad or Notepad for maximum 1337-ness. If this is your first website, and you're an HTML novice I'd advice you to ignore that advice and just get a webpage-builder such as DreamWeaver, Stones Webwriter or [Sideshow Bob shudder] MicroSoft Frontpage. Of those I'll highly recommedn you get Stones Webwriter because it's free, easy to use and most importnatly it's damn good! It will help you learn HTML, while putting together a website.

Step 3: scrap the website you made in step 2. Use the experience you got to design a new and better website.

Step 4: Lather, rinse, repeat until you have something you're satisfied with.

Once you feel confident enough with HTML you can start writing the code yourself using Notepad.

Good luck.

I always like using something other than Notepad, because I'm just lazy!   big grin  I'll typically use Microsoft Frontpage first then 'tweek' it later on by looking at it in Notepad and making changes.  I just can't be bothered to write all that code when I can use another program to at least give me the structure I'm looking for.

I also use an HTML book for reference as well.  I managed to pick it up somewhere for like $20.  It's like 1000 pages or so but it's rather good.  Not sure if it's still on the market but the name of it is Using HTML Special Edition" by Brown, Jung and Savola.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

no html on this forum buddy because only the mods are able to use html on peel so you can't show what ever you've done because it might cause a big problem

Yes, to show it you must have it on an actual website. I do congradulate you on using notepad for your html.

For web hosts, I suggest cjb not many ads, if any, and no pop-ups.

All i'm gonna say is if you make a website do not use a page a builder. Make sure you use HTML. I would say if you planning on making a site that will be update reguarly then code it in something like JSP, ASP, Perl or PHP. I would recommend PHP from them but make sure you web host supports it. Of course theres no point using them if its just going to be update every few months.

If you're new, i'd advise learning HTML and try to use notepad. If you know nothing about websites, ignore Tom above saying to learn JSP, ASP, Perl or PHP, you'll be confused as fuck if you try.

Timescale wise for me, i went:
(~2001) HTML (Jumped straight in at notepad) -> (~2003) SHTML -> (2004-> ) PHP.

Freewebs has the worst possible layouts to use. Tripod or make a layout upload it on Geocities and learn basic HTML which you don't need unless you want a good site.

go to www.cnet.com  and in there download section search for web-o-rama its free and will build you webpage using wizards with little or no html knowledge needed, although it uses wizards each site build is unique and not all the same, it will still be to how you want it to look. all you need then is some webspace. if you want to check out what its capable of go to my website www.roddney.co.uk
