  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. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

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

  15. 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:

  21. 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,

  22. 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

Here is your roadmap to Wordpress freelance work: Do the StudioWeb core language training: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, SQL Do the Wordpress Themes course in the projects Do the CRUDE project course as well Start learning the Wordpress ecosystem ... know what the options are for the top themes, plugins, e-commerce options. My Business Battleplan course will help with the freelance/business end of things. You will be good to go. I assume you know the basics of Wordpress. Stef

  29. Hi, So I've been checking out the numbers and have found that email marketing is still much more effective that social media. In fact, some people say it can be as much as 30-40x more effective! ... The problem is, you have to get those email addresses! So how do you do that? Build a content rich site. Use social media to get some attention. Have good spam filters in place so your list of emails/subscribers doesn't get polluted with the fake accounts. This is a problem btw that everyone on the Web faces. Even Facebook has admitted that a huge percentage of their users are just fake acc

  33. Hi all. I'm new to Killersites, so I'll give my, hopefully, quick intro. I have a career in broadcast audio but started thinking about programming for fun, and maybe a side job. I have been doing an open courseware class on programming with python, which has been good. Although you don't get tested and there's no feedback. On my YouTube feed I see programming videos and recently Stefan's videos came up. I was impressed by his direct manner and how he speaks with clarity. I wrote him for some advice on programming vs. web development as a freelance job. He responded quickly, which impressed me.

I have had some experience with python before, but I never built anything cool with it. I had several years of not doing anything with it so I decided to start from the beginning again. This little bit of code is basically my own personal "Hello World" program: x = [some number] while x > -1: print(x) x -= 1 The first time I encountered a "Hello World" program it took me a while to understand why it was special. It seemed like I had do

  42. I know to code in PHP and JS but I am feeling that I dont know that really good, that I have missed some stuff and I want to review it. I tried JS on my own (with books) didnt work out. Tried one course, taught me just a partially JS, but still I valued that knowlege that I learned from that. Then I said I want to go to school where they teach you Web Programming in a year, because I want someone to teach me. Its a good thing, but still didnt feel I learned all, I think they use lots of terminology words and its not that simplified and I am kinda a guy who likes to learn step by step.

  46. Hello domdag27, Here is a little program that solves your problem. You can test it by using the three files (test.html, screen.css and local-storage2.js) I've attached to my reply. It can of course be further improved, for example by checking that no two tasks have the same identifier before being added and displayed in your table. As a general rule of thumb, you should always split up your JavaScript programs into several parts (= or little functions) to write it and improve it more easily. You'll see that in this one, there is seven little functions each dedicated to a specific pur

  49. Web design is about code and not about tools. You would not learn how to build a house by learning to use a nail driver right? You would learn using a hammer because it is about technique and planning and not learning tools. One you can build a house you can learn to use a nail driver to speed the process (and easier on your back/knees). Same here. To start learning, use notepad, that is what I had to use in school (and a horror called Emacs). Learn the code and how to work with it. THEN when you can create web sites, move up to free editors to help speed the process a bit. Eventually if y
