    Question help making a site

    http://img216.imageshack.us/my.php?i...rtfoliokn8.png

    am going to make a portfolio in css/html, but I'm not in posession of the skills required to make the website the way I want it. thus I need help for some of the coding. firstly making tables and making them symmetrical and so on.

    the portfolio/about/contact menu, the header and the menu/updates bar are supposed to be pictures. when you click on portfolio/about/contact, the desired site should come in the frame where updates currently are on the picture. the menu/updates bar must update accordingly to a menu/portfolio, menu/about or menu/contact bar.

    site should use a .css file that I can get info from, i.e. define elements in the .html files according to the elements defined in the .css file.

    Check http://www.bonrouge.com/2c-hf-fluid(r).php for a good 2 column layout.

    PS: I think you are not looking for some one to do the your coding work. If so, we have "Web Projects" sub-forum. Request a moderator to move your thread.

    Still, this is more of a request for someone to write a page for you. I suggest looking at www.w3schools.com for some basic tutorials about how to best code a page.

    if you are looking for help on snippets of code, then you are at the right place.

    if you are looking for someone to completely write it for you or to walk you thru step by step for your whole project, in the hope of someone just being nice, then you are asking a bit much.

    There are lots of tutorial out there, just google it.

    Worse comes to worse, can always use the best web tool out there, FrontPage!

    I hope this is a joke?

    Do not use FrontPage, it is no longer even under development. It has been changed to "Expression Web" by Microsoft in an attempt to cover up how horrible it was for the web. And yet, I still find people using it, but please don't. It adds a ton of extra markup and will cause tons of issues.

    Honestly if aarolilja is going to learn how to code, it is best to use something simple and not WYSIWYG in my opinion. That way they can learn how to code properly, without letting web editors "do it" for them. No WYSIWYG edit is perfect nor does it help to make pages solely in a visual design view. It will likely cause a lot of issues, bloated code, and make maintenance difficult if you don't know at least the basics of the code underneath the editor.

    Also as far as the tables thing, so many people just say "Don't use tables for layout" and give a link. I"m going to try and explain it quickly though. HTML is designed to give meaning to your content. So paragraph text should be wrapped in the tag for a paragraph (<p>), and same with tables. Tabular data (such as something you'd place in a spreadsheet) belongs in tables (<table>), but not layout because layout is the job of CSS. HTML only describes the content (if it is a paragraph, a table, an image, etc) and the CSS gives it a visual appeal (but not changing the meaning of the content). I hope that helps.

    The ONLY reason I see with WYSIWYG editors is for those who do not wish to at least learn html and css, which there are a lot of those out there, either with legitimate or non legitimate reasons.

    aaw, I'm giving up. if I'm not supposed to use frames or tables, what am I supposed to use then? I used the code I was given in one of the first posts, but I can't find a way to make the updates-section fit in and stuff. by the way, I only wanted snippets of codes. but I understand now that it will be too hard for me to make it, so I'm going to use a WYSIWYG-editor.

    um, yeah, so do you guys know which editor for Linux that is the best? anyways, thanks for the help :-)
