Who here builds websites?

13 replies 1 views Edited Mar 20, 2007
I am new to this and trying to learn without taking any classes, I use photoshop cs2 and dreamweaver 8. I know how to use cs2 but not dreamweaver, does anyone know any good sites to learn where I don't have to pay any money? Also, I am trying to figure out what php language and mysql are; if anyone knows what these are can you please pm me? Thanks.

I've never liked using Dreamweaver and would rather do the coding from scratch, but if you're wanting to learn more about other coding languages, go to W3 Schools. They can explain very well every type of language with a lot of detail.

Oh and PHP is more advanced than HTML (kind of like XHTML) which gives you more freedom to do things. MySQL is a database.

Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

Try pixel 2 life. Follow the steps and it will help you. Basically what you want to do in Photoshop CS2 is use the slice tool and save for web. Then open the html file in dreamweaver and experiment.

if you are doing a small webpage just design all of the stuff in photoshop slice it up with the knife tool and do a File> save for web>save as HTML and images. It puts it all together for you then just pop the html open in dreamweaver and then you can insert all of your body copy, links and rollovers and whatnot

I suggest you learn HTML, CSS, and a bit of Javascript before going into PHP and MySQL.
Like others have said, W3C Schools is a great site to learn all that stuff from.   Good luck.
