    Default Learnt the Basics...Whats Next!! 27 May 2009 @ 12.13

    Well like the heading says. I've learnt the basics to building my own website. But, where do i start? Whats next? How do i build a website thats working and can be viewed? I'm lost as to what i need to do now...?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Basic coding done. CSS done. What comes next? I want to build a website so i can test it and see what its like...Do i need photoshop to do this?

    Or not!!

    Thanks anyone who can shed some light on this for me...

    first you need content. A plan

    Whats your site going to deliver and to what audience

    once you understand this then you need a design. This can come from the imagination or you can use a pre designed template or you can look at other sites and get inspiration from them

    here is a good resource... here

    check out the inspiration section for ideas (don't copy)

    then I would carve up a concept in Photoshop. A guide to work off.

    once you have this then you just get jiggy with CSS

I am ready or feel readu to start making my own site but i'm just asking for some advice that will help me. We all started somewhere once and we all had to build our first website. I can do that but im just asking if Photoshop is what i have to use or can i build a 800x600 website without using Photoshop. I'm not sure if i can actually make a site with photoshop but as for the basics then i feel ready.

    What would you suggest?

    Actually .. I would suggest you to continue your work with CSS. Learn more about it and how much it can actually do. Start working with DIV's and CLASSes.

    Mhm, if you want to see how much I relay on CSS. Go to my portfolio site and disable my CSS files and see for yourself. :o
