I am wanting to make a homepage for my forums. Well basically a page that loads up first and then leads to my forums. Sort of like a Portal I guess.
Now I am familiar with HTML and how to use it for making a web page. But I wanted to ask, if there are easier or better ways to make it look more professional in the design, and set up.
Are there any other coding or scripting languages I could use, or maybe specific programs?
Thanks for your help!
make someting in photoshop, and splice it up, photoshop does all the table coding 4 u
Or just use Dreamweaver for the coding. Good for beginners.
U may also use FRONTPAGE in creating your site. Its very easy everything is there. If you are using Windows then you have this installed in your pc. Try to check if u have and start creating your website from there.
Use Adobe Photoshop for your own design creating,
Macromedia Dreamwaver for scripting it - instead of writing all the tags and CSS you make it in visual editor.
If you are looking for a nice easy to use program (in my opinion it's easy to use) I recommend NVU, a HTML editor with some coding abilities (I think). Check it out at nvu.com. I haven't had any trouble with it. You should easily be able to make a homepage with it.
i use frontpage Designing surveys is an art unto itself, requiring careful analysis, skill, and an absolute attention to detail. On the other hand, coding or developing a Web page that contains an electronic form that collects the data from a willing participant is often just as arduous. That is, until Microsoft® FrontPage® 98 or higher was released. If you use Microsoft FrontPage to both design and manage your Web site, you are in good hands. FrontPage makes developing and publishing a Web form or survey a breeze. Moreover, it doesn't require that you know any programming or scripting languages that interactively collect and dynamically display results from a database as you will see in this tutorial. But before I move on to actually creating an online survey in this demonstration, there are few things you should understand about designing a form from scratch.
The first step in designing any survey, be it a one-button opinion poll or an elaborate multi-page form, is to sketch out the survey on paper or develop it in Microsoft Word or use Microsoft Visio®, a powerful, easy to use diagramming tool. Next, carefully think through all of the variables or questions to elicit the best response, then lay out the fields in logical order, and most importantly keep the form concise. Nothing is more irritating than having a seemingly non-relevant question pop up from nowhere while taking a survey. You need to keep in mind the participant's time constraints and interest. It's also not a bad idea to tell the survey participant where to find the published results of your survey or how you plan to use it. Another important tip is to refrain from collecting personal information about the survey taker, obviously for reasons of privacy.
