Default Html

Hello and I really need help with HTML. A friend of mine wanted me to learn it and offered me a job if I could pick it up in about 1-2 weeks. I really don't know that much about it so does anyone know of a website or something that can help me learn it quick?

Sometimes that can be helpful, though. If you make something simple in a HTML editor, then read the code it produces, it can help you get a feel for the language.

...as long as you realise you don't know the full extent of everything that can be done with it and every method of using it in 3 days! Course you can pick up the basics in a few days - all I'm saying is be aware of your limitations before rushing into work

I understand fully well that you can't learn everything in 3 days. But I do feel I learned enough to create a basic business webpage, which is what my goal was.

I learned HTML and CSS div formatting (the biggest pain imo) in about a week with w3schools and google. In the process of learning PHP, stuck on a few things though.

I managed to learn enough about HTML to create a webpage but I ran into a problem. The website builder offered by 1 and 1 is trash and I'm trying to load the HTML code through my FTP account. Problem is when I switch the format in Word Processor from .wps to .html it gives me an error message. On my website the code shows up as text and not HTML code.

Thanks,
Warren

Use a proper WYSIWYG web editor.

What word processor are you using? Something like MS Word is complete rubbish for any sort of coding work.

Grab notepad++ or something similar - or as said above use a WYSIWYG editor.

Yeah NVU I found is pretty good. I just published my website and so far we have 3 hits. Not very many but it's still a startup.

I could teach you over TeamSpeak, but for a price.

Otherwise, the links above are great tools to begin your learning journey.

Thank you, for your post, but this thread is more than a month old, and I tried to close it. So it really doesn't need resurrection.
