I think it is much more enjoyable making a website from HTML5 and CSS than with fancy template sites, even though it  takes a lot more time.

It usually depends of your needs. If your only intention is to get your stuff online, then a template might be your best bet, but you really have to choose wisely. Preferably, if you are planning to expand your website then you're better off writing your own, though, unless it's a forum

The first Omnimaga website that I made was made by myself, but the HTML code was an absolute disaster, so in the end I might have been better off using a template or CMS. :P http://xlib.mtv-music-generator.com/omnimagaoldsite/index_v1.html

I think the key is experience and time to learn HTML/CSS. When I was in college, they did not even teach us about the existence of CSS (although back then it was not widespread) and I only got to learn a minimal amount of HTML and Javascript. If you try to make a website but have no clue how to use a <body> tag then you're in big trouble.

Erm, this looks just like you saved the Monthly CW Project Award page or the portal with the poll in HTML then uploaded the source code. That HTML file looks identical to when CodeWalrus fails to load its CSS.

If you're interested in web development (the programming branch working with websites, web servers and stuff like that):

- read about HTML, CSS, JS (how you separate functionality, design and content) (w3schools.com is good)
- read about what BOOTSTRAP is and how to use it plus alternatives
- read about what JQUERY is and how to use it plus alternatives
- read about what XAMPP is and how it works // what you use it for
- read about Frontend and Backend
- read about Java and PHP for both of the above (pros and cons)
- read about what a CMS (Content Management System) is

if ur donw with this, you can chose to start working on your own little demo websites :)
and if u want to go hardcore, then do this:

- get a Linux ISO (Ubuntu is best, terminal only or GUI is your own choice)
- setup a web server manually
- configure the web server to run a free CMS

If you manage to do that, you are worthy of doing web development on a professional level :)

Noone in the office knows PHP, still work in web dev (Java backends and java+JS based CMS only)  :thumbsup:

What is front end and back end?
I guess I don't need to worry about PHP.  Can't you use Python instead of Java?

Yes, and the source is nearly line - for - line the same.

Also, I'm no JS expert, but I learned a lot (namely the basics) from this site (http://www.learn-js.org/).

I suggest you check it out, it's pretty helpful.

Front end is the user interfacse, what the user sees on the website, and backend is the serverside stuff where passwords and posts or whatever is stored, iirc.

HTML is the ui part, its a markup language so its all about the visuals, and js is the thing that powers html, the client side code that lets specific users run things without having to go to the server and back to the client. (this probably isnt a very good explanation, and i guess java? or php? (i dont know much about those, just starting to dabble in web dev myself) is fthe serverside language, what ckontrols the bacend. i also believ you can use c# for backend as well, if you use vs.
