I think I understood what you want. For HTML and stuff in Windows I used Dreamweaver MX, by Macromedia. Its a WYSIWYG editor, so you can preview the HTML aswell. Another good one is NVU, that uses Gecko, instead of IE, to preview. PHP is a server-side scripting language. There are many sites out there to help you learn it. One of the best is PHPs main site, php.net. You can look up what each function does and find a few tutorials to help you along. Devshed is also a great place for tutorials on PHP and MANY other programming topics.

Well, to start with, what kind of experience do you already have? That goes a long way in determining what's a "good" way to go. As far as a good program to use; for HTML you can use Notepad even; if you know what you're doing it's better than anything else you pay for. As far as a good all-purpose text-editor, I personally recommend jEdit. It's Java based, so you'll need to have that installed. I can't help with graphics; I have problems drawing stick figures, so I don't even bother doing that.

Why don't you give a little more detail on exactly what it is you're looking for? There's lots of things that can be "good and easy to use" for one thing but are totally useless and confusing for other things.

Nah man, you don't need some program. HTML's easy, it just looks complicated. Do a Google for HTML Tutorials; you'll get a ton of sites that can help. A good one:

www.w3schools.com...

You should really try to learn how to do it yourself before you start in with some high-powered editor. That way you can get the editor to do even cooler stuff that you never would've though of. If you want some help with learning it, I'd be more than happy to show you some basics, and I'm sure there's plenty of other members here who'd love to help too.

Okay, you know HTML, you have the site designed. You need a host; you can either get a free one like Geocities or something, or pay for one and get a .com domain name. If you're using extra stuff like PHP, ASP, whatever, you'll need to check and double check that they support it before you sign up. Once you get that going, you upload it--they should have instructions for you on how to handle that, it's roughly the same for every site but there's always something different.

Excellent site! MCory1 is absolutely correct. You can learn almost everything there is to know about HTML from online tutorials. As far as an editor goes, There are some speed shortcuts when you use somethign liek Dreamweaver, or FrontPage but notepad even works. If you do a decent amount of scripting you'll find your self working in text editor mode anyways. It always goes back to text editing so learn that HTML.

I have to agree with learning html. I built my site, not the forums, but the actuall site, using notepad only. It's free!!! Any text editor can be used to build you site, plus you have complete control over it.
