  1. Welcome to the forum. You just need foundation dev skills to get going. Don't worry about all the frameworks and languages .... you will drive yourself nutty trying to learn them all. Learn tech on a need 2 nerd basis and you will be cool. Stef
  2. Hi, Send me an email: stefan at killersites ... and I will give you an alternative download. Or you can try redownloading the damaged zips. It happens sometimes.

    CSS stylesheet not working properly

    CSS stylesheet not working properly

    The above is not CSS. The reason the CSS is not working, is simply small errors in your code. Just Google 'CSS background image', and you are sure find many examples. Stef

    IWD - HTML Ch4.8 - Problem with code??

    Hi Rich, Paths are one of the big hurdles in learning web coding. So don't let it get to you. Suggestion: Based on what I see in your code and directory screenshot, you are simply not placing your files in the proper directories. So, in your code, you are telling the web browser with this code: ../ ... That the index page is in a directory above the current page. So place your friends.html page in a sub directory and be sure you index page is above that. To test this out and to learn, first get your links working where all your pages are in the same directory. Stef

    Studioweb's Powerful Python 3!

    Hi, Email me at stefan at studioweb and I will send you access to the Python streaming course with quizzing. Please include your IWD ID as well. Thanks!
  8. I don't think it is bad. I think though that it has to be used with a lighter touch than what you typically see. I've addressed this in my videos on OOP inheritance as an example. In my own coding career, I would use both procedural and OO programming but leaned heavily OO ... with a light touch. Stef

    Missing HTML Code for Lessons 6.5 and 6.6

    Ahh .. yes. Congratulations! In all honesty, understanding traditional CSS layouts with floats is one of the hardest things to master in many respects.

    Missing HTML Code for Lessons 6.5 and 6.6

    Hi, If you don't see code for a particular lesson, it is because the code in contained in the next lesson source files. Let me know if that helps. Stef
  11. I prefer MySQl simply because I am used to it. But posgres people would say otherwise. Both are good databases but I think MySQL has better tools around the core database.

    Using Photoshop to plan website UI?

    Hi, Every web designer has their own preferred method of doing things. Some use Photoshop while others who are more comfortable with code, will start with some web template, and then tweak the structure and design from there.

    Web Design Neophyte

    Hi, Dreamweaver CS3 is very, very old and would produce outdated code. So you want to avoid it. If you don't want to learn how to code, then you could look at the latest version of Dreamweaver. That said, better to learn the basics of web development (HTML, CSS, JS and PHP: https://shop.killervideostore.com/) or just use a turnkey solution (ex: shopify) that will cost you a monthly fee.
