    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 programming, I am no authority on the subject. I feel like I know just enough to understand how everything works. However, I find topics of modern tech implementation pretty exciting and I look forward to listening what everyone has to share. If I'm not a programming wiz, what the heck and I doing here? I'm not sure yet! Haha. I'd like to see how the forum evolves as the community grows. It would be fun to riff about business, finance, or anything else that may spark an interest. I think this will be a neat place to learn and share information! Chao!

    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 have considered whether or not I should be more narrowly focused. We'll see! I also do some affiliate marketing and have built and flipped a few sites of my own. I stumbled onto Stef's youtube a few months ago and became an instant fan, some of his vlogs on business, contracts, and clients have been very helpful. So when he announced that he was re-launching the forum, I was like: I have a feeling this will be a great community. With that said, who else is out there? Introduce yourself...

    Hi! 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

    One of the frustrations with learning programming is that you absolutely have to be in front of the computer. Audio is a great way to learn while driving, walking/running, doing the dishes etc. Really frees up the slots of time which you can use to keep learning!

    Web Developers, much of my posting to date has covered protecting yourself. Lets talk about protecting your customer and their users. I cannot state this any stronger, Strong Passwords! If it takes little effort to break a password than the site you built can be hi-jacked to pass out malware. Database design, consider making it a tiered design. Sensitive data in a red zone, encrypted and password protected with strict access permissions. Less sensitive data in a Yellow zone that has lesser protection and more access and simple stuff in a green zone with just password protection and general permissions. If you use look-up tables that state that "2 = married with children", that is a look-up table and needs liuttle protection. But all sensitive data should be encrypted so that if adversaries do get to it... they can't read it. Be aware of SQL Injection attacks. If you allow data to be added to a website, make sure it is checked. If you allow basic comments with no security, an adversary could insert JavaScript into that comment that does really bad things. Malware Detection - Discovering Cross-Site Scripting Attacks Watering Hole Attacks. I think LastLine blog defined it rather well: "In a network watering hole attack, cybercriminals set traps in websites that their target victims are known to frequent. Often the booby-trapped websites are smaller, niche sites that tend to have limited security. These sites can include business partner sites or small websites that provide specific products, services, or information to the target company or industry. When visited, the compromised website infects the target end-users computer or device with keyloggers, ransomware, and other types of malware." The issue here is really about protecting web sites you build from being the water holes that infects your customers users. Network Security and Watering Hole Attacks As I come across tips for securing your web sites, I will expand this thread.

    Hi webmanz, you forgot to close the first <a>. The next </a> is after "my friends" so the whole sentence before it is shown as a link. It should be like this: <p>Welcome to my personal <a href="index.html"> home page.</a></p>

    Hi, Python is not part of the IWD course package. StudioWeb main curriculum is something for schools. Did you buy the IWD course? If not, let me know and I will include Python for you.

    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 purpose. I've commented out as much as I could this javascript program. Enjoy! local-storage2.js screen.css test.html

    I just have a few grammar suggestions: Web Development: Since From a young age, I have .... Skills: I have knowledge in responsive web design with experience in: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootsrap, Node.js, Python, AJAX, Angular, Visual Basic and am learning more every day! (or ..., Visual Basic, and I am learning more every day!) As to Athletics and Hobbies - Is the site about you, or is is there to get you web development work? If it's you - then fine, but if it's there to get you work, I don't see how any of that is relevant at all. If I'm looking for a plumber, I want one who does good work, and I couldn't care less if in his spare time, he's bird-watching or under-water-basket weaving. And from the 'Need a Website?" part: If you need a website that looks great on all screen sizes, you've you have come to the right place. I work with a small team of developers, and we would love to get you started. We aim to make the process as easy for you as possible, leaving the work to us while keeping you posted every step of the way. We aim to make the process as easy for you as possible. Leave the work to us, and we will keep you posted every step of the way. Our goal is to make your dream site come to life, and we wont will not stop until you agree! Get in touch with me (see below), and we can discuss the details. None of this is a big deal, and most people probably won't notice, but grammar nazis like I am, will :-)

    Agreed! Bangkok I mainly met English teachers, but up here more or less every western guy I've met is a coder or marketing/website freelancer and every girl I've met is a blogger. Also Stef - This invision forum software is really nice and clean. I stay logged in (through facebook I presume), and the notifications make sense. -- Thanks for answering the question. When you say there's 4 levels, is 4 inherently more complex and desirable than 2 or 3? I'm just about ready to hit level 2, so I can concentrate on higher level business activities - increasing my knowledge, finding new clients, hiring people. My goal is to gradually become an expert in PHP + Wordpress, able to do any and all jobs which come my way, but actually doing almost none of them - just the really cool ones. My friend here has himself a developer from the Philippines, who primarily uses Divi. He's paid him $300 a month for a few years now - is this a realistic approach? Ideally, I need a guy who has a total understanding of PHP to build websites for me using Beaver builder & wordpress, but able to take on more complex jobs. My understanding of PHP isn't good enough right now to hire anybody to do more complex jobs yet - I just had to turn down a nice web app. I think I could comfortably sell $4k-6k good month (2 or 3 x $2000 or similar), and using page builders there's more than enough time - slow clients not withstanding... for $300 in labour per month, the margins there are obviously huge. What do you think of this approach? Too much of a hack, or entrepreneurial (while it lasts)? Cheers Adam

    Thank you so much for this very detailed response. It'll take me a bit to figure out what I did 2 years ago, but I'll work through it and apply your suggestions.

    I run CentOS Linux. Of editors available to both CentOS and MAC, I have used VIM, Brackets, Atom, and Sublime Text. I have used others that are not ported to MAC. Of these, I always come back to Sublime Text. Best Advice? Try several, you will find one that stands out among the others.

    Hi, Ahh .. yes. The Python course in StudioWeb has quizzing ... so I mentioned the quizzing. Email directly if you want StudioWeb.com access with all the quizzing and gamification. How are you liking the python course so far? Thanks, Stefan

    Hi! We had some strict rules in the past, because the forum software had a hard time with the spammers. The current new software is much more capable so I think everyone will be a bit more chill. That said, pretty please, don't spam us! ... That said: PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS!! Stef

    That style of comment is only good in CSS and Javascript. For HTML comments, you need to be using the right syntax: <!-- your comment here -->

    We get all sorts of variations to this question and I am sort of tired of repeating myself so it's Sticky time. To begin are links from myself and falkencreative.
