  1. 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

  5. This was a useful video I found a few weeks ago and I got a lot from it: 17 Sublime Text Shortcuts and Tips The text version he mentions is here: http://GitHub repository: https://github.com/michaelcheng429/17-sublime-text-tip PS: Let's call it 18 tips: 18] Removing a plugin from Sublime text 3: This afternoon I had to do just that and was almost demented until I found the answer below. It's mind-boggling how many people can't answer a simple question like "how can I remove a package from Sublime Text" without getting into a slavering fluster and unleashing lectures they

  6. 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

  7. Hi everyone my name is Colt. I've been a subscriber on Stef's Youtube channel(s) and an instagram follower. I just finished the interactive developer course and am currently working on Studioweb projects. After completing the course and completing some self study I would like to break out and start freelancing albeit it might not be ideal timing.

  9. 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.

  18. The only thing I see is you don't capitalize the D in the div centerDoc. Most of the times, my problems come from creating duplicates/moving the file in another folder, then the page I'm refreshing in the web browser is not the one where I make the changes in the code editor. I say that because I see you have several documents with similar names opened in Sublime.

  23. Hey guys, I'm brand new to Studio Web and professional web design. So, hello world! I started working on my first free portfolio job which is a Wix site redo and looking for some tips on learning this system to do advanced html and css and js down the road. I'm not really finding too many good sites that provide advanced tactics. It seems most people stay in the Wix templates and don't get into to the code. What I'm looking to do is make the site responsive first and foremost. It looks like it only has two modes which is maximized desktop and mobile. It seems like there needs t

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.

  28. Hi, all! Well I've had the web developer course for a year now but stopped shortly after starting the Javascript section for one reason or another. My work has put me on furlough for the time being so I thought I would take the opportunity to teach myself the web dev fundamentals and maybe get a couple of projects done as well.

  29. If you want to rank your website your onsite should be good because if your on-page is good and according to Google guidelines you can rank your website but for that, your have to select low competition and medium competition. Always use longtail keywords like if you provide website development then you can use "website development services provider". Always use your target keywords in URL, title, and meta description. Maintain your keywords density which is 1% to 2% which is according to google guidelines and always uses unique content don't post copied content because google always values th

  30. 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!

  37. Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user's based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries website will look great and work well on a desktop a tablet, and a mobile phone's browser

  38. Hey there! I used to be very active on this site when I was a freelance web designer, although I've been working full time in HTML email for the last three years or so and my skills have gotten... rusty. (also I have no idea what my old account was so I had to start a new one...) I have an opportunity to apply internally for a role with more wide-spread design work, both graphical and web. My old portfolio site was just links out to site that I did, many of which no longer look like what I made or have disappeared. So I very quickly threw together a responsive gallery this morning that is mean

  43. Good SEO is simple these days: Build websites using modern techniques. I teach that in my web design and development courses, so you are covered there. The content in the sites, should contain a real distribution of keywords for the terms that people use to search. How a social presence that is topical and points back to your site. Use multi media with metadata that is tagged with keywords appropriate to the subject. Stef

  46. The course is pretty thorough however when you first get started this can get to feel overwhelming at first. My personal opinion is you have to give yourself the time to go through the entire course, even if you don't fully understand what you are watching. The idea here is that you will start to see the bigger picture and how the code starts to tie together. When you go back through a second time you will feel less intimidated and the smaller things that might seem to be flying past you will become much easier to absorb the second go around. if you get stuck hit the forum here and someone wil

  47. 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

  49. Ohhh I get tired of such "articles," they are usually so off it is not funny. (By the way we have a whole accessibility section covering all of this.) Just imagine accessibility being created for SEO and not for those users who actually need it to use web sites. And why push XHTML when IE does not even support it? Clearly the author has no idea of the difference of XHTML. It is more important to use the right MIME-TYPE, if you do not specify it as XHTML, then you are just serving up poorly written HTML. If you do specify it correctly as a XML language, IE will crash. So if you
