  1. I also tried this at first, and it was almost the same experience, most people don't know what they want, so I mainly use templates, show them, and change things up for them, its troubling when they yes too everything and trying to start from scratch, so by having a "menu" that I can serve to them on a silver platter made the whole processes much simpler. By that I mean, here are a few Menu - Home Page - Color Pallet Combinations, here are the most popular trending fonts, used in 2018 for clear visuals, and so on. Most people don't pay attention to small details at first but when its all

  2. So, about the time when covid-19 started it's mean streak, I decided to pursue my goal of a career change, from pre-school teacher to a full-fledged nerd. Through my life I've been a nerd in hiding so to speak, so I figured out, hey! let's give coding a chance! I found udemy.com and started a masterclass in Java... just to bite off more than I could chew. I followed along the course, to about 60% completion before I realized: I'm following blindly, trying to learn something new, but I'm really not learning "anything". I also realized that the tutor had mad skills when it came to Java, but wasn

  3. We get a lot of questions about learning, but part of getting a job is also experience. Volunteering is not just a way to get experience but also built up a body of work and employers do tend to like people who volunteer. So how can I get experience? What are you thinking with volunteering? 1. Teaching: This will depend on your experience and area. In Germany I helped Youth Club staff build good web sites. Here in Juneau I did a seminar for local businesses. Here at Killersites I have learned things or made “mental connections” as I have tried to teach or help many of you with your

  6. Greetings, everyone! I've never interacted with the community surrounding Stefan's work, but when I heard a new forum had been developed I thought it would be a great time to get involved! A little bit about myself: My name is Logan. I'm a 24 year old from Hot Springs, Arkansas; a small town in the southern region of the US. Right now I'm working in marketing and sales for local business, but I'm obsessed with business and innovation. Creating real value for people is what gets me out of bed every morning! Although I've taken some of Stef's courses and self-learned a bit of

  8. Hello everybody! My name is Javier, I moved to the US in my 30's as many immigrants with no money, no english and no family, twenty years later I'm ready to start my new adventure, web development! I have no skills in coding (very basic). I know I will find a lot of knowledge in these forums. Since I was in high school I wanted to work with computers, but never have a chance until now, I love play the guitar and I have an obsession with dominate the Vim text editor (is a personal challenge). My goal is to became a full-stack developer I'm interested in learning HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, Python

  10. Undoubtedly, Search Engine Optimization is another kind of programming. Though, it does not involve typical coding structures, classes, and objects. However, it has its own syntax. It has its own methods & modules which when employed can enhance your ranking in the search engine. Yet due to spammy and irrelevant backlink building SEO has changed drastically over the years. So, here are few working tips and tricks which will surely assist you to achieve better ranking in 2018. 1. Write Longer Meta Descriptions 2. Improve your website’s user experience 3.

  11. Hello All, It would be great to see who's kicking around the forums and get some introductions going. Seems like a good way to get things rolling Starting with myself... I'm Tyler. I'm in Vancouver BC Canada and I'm currently working as a freelance web designer and marketer, mostly with local businesses. Everything I have learned so far has been on a need to nerd basis (as Stef would say). I still have a lot to learn, but I get by ok. On any given day I might be working on web development, design, seo, ppc campaigns, content marketing, or anything really. I love it all, but

Hi, I recently started the php videos and as stefan suggested to go inside the conf folder and search for display_errors and turn it on, i did it but was not able to see the errors on the page, i was surprised and kept repeating for some time, then when i searched for the word php.ini in phpinfo file i saw it showing a different path --- Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php7.3.8/conf/php.ini The file was actually inside the bin directory php directory and so on, so when i went inside there and changed it , it worked, just thought of sharing it as there are 2 locations where you find th

  20. A few things will cause your site to not appear in the search engines. First thing is to be sure this line of code IS NOT in your pages: <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"> ... The above code tells the search engines to ignore your page and any links in the page. Instead, use this code: <meta name="robots" content="all"> You can learn more here: https://developers.google.com/search/reference/robots_meta_tag Check out this screenshot for details:

  26. Good news on the Net Neutrality Issue, the Senate has voted to repeal Pi's decision. But it is not over yet, although the Senate voted to repeal it, the House of Representatives has not yet and the timer to do so is ticking down. For those of you who really care, pop off another letter or phone call to your representative and let them know a vote must take place and what you expect that vote to be, they are supposed to represent us and not big business. As for the Senate... the vote was 52 to 47, we won the vote, but only be 5 votes which I find to be a sorry margin indeed. But hey,

  27. Hi, With freelancing web developer, chances of liability are very, very little. It's not like someone can trip over your website and break their foot. That said, be sure to have a good standard contract that you use to avoid clients being able to come back at you after the job is done. ... Basically, you need them to sign off and absolve you of further work once complete. I would consult with local accountant though and they should be able to tell you when it makes sense to create an LLC. LLC's are more expensive to setup than a sole proprietorship and the accounting cost are

I've checked ever folder that could possibly receive an email, including spam. I've sent an email to support, but with whatever is going on with the email server, I wonder if you received it. My apologies for submit the issue here as a topic. EDIT- I contacted Mr. Mischook and resolved the issue.

  39. Been away a while, when the state installed a new security software that blocked KillerSites. I don't even touch my laptop anymore, so I have not been in since work blocked it. But it is available again now so I am back. Security has fallen by the wayside as the state entity hamstrung my Divisions attempt at having their own security... me. Now I am back to work as a Programmer and training up in C#, .NET, & Azure, as we finally get away from Java and Oracle. So, as I am no longer doing Security, I will no longer be posting much there. Good to be back!

Anyway, I'm a retired electronic/telecommunications technician, who has always, as Stef would put it so aptly, a need to nerd. I got into programming before computers were even out, around 1978/1979. Someone offered to sell me a programmable calculator, a TI-56. I had no idea, at the time what a programmable calculator was, but, once I caught onto it. My first computer was a VIC-20, and, I programmed that, saving my programs to audio tape. I got away fr
