The best web-site to learn web design is http://www.w3schools.com/

I’d learn PHP, XHTML, and CSS a very powerful combo.  VTC, and Total Training make some good training material.  But CSS just comes with experience and getting help from the forums :)

I think there is a lot of good resources out there, htmldog is another great website for gaining skills. Depending on how you learn the best there are some very good books on web design that are well worth the read.  A good starting place would be the dummies books you can get a good basic but thorough basing to build on to gain valuable knowledge.

Hi Sahiba, I would highly recommend Sitepoint.com. They have a great range of books from web design, seo and development in php, .net / asp etc. They also sell the web design business kit which is a good start up help guide on how to run a successful web design business.

If you are just starting out I can give you loads of advice from my own personal experiences over 6 years.

First Tip: Always get a contract with your client and a signed off functional specification of work to be carried out. if you don’t then the client will often come back and say “why didn’t you build this”. You can reply with “here is the spec. it wasn’t in it therefore it wasn’t built”. It’s suprising what clients assume you would have build into a design and this is one of the pitfalls that I experienced when I first started in this business.

Thanks

Craig, calvert1977, webdesignernew, Dr. MadCow, ifohdesigns, sky1 and sahiba

i am lurking this thread now for more than several days. Since i am a big Greenhorn here
i thought that i have to be quiet.  :geek:  I am still trying to learn more about CSS, but got stuck and i stumped by some problem I am experiencing. But i begin with the beginning.

Currently i work on the site - http://www.jobstarters.org - and i want to set up the RockSlideShow from http://www.rocketwerx.com/products/rokslideshow/download

To confess: Well, if it comes to template i am a Greenhorn. Believe me. I know almost nothing. can you help me out i beleive a terrible way to do this.  But since I couldn’t find a “proper” way to do it in the forum, I thought that other dummies like me have the same problem.
Please help me out. One week i I fiddled around with the CSS and HTML (thanks to a dangerous book called HTML, XHTML & CSS for Dummies!) but this time around I made only a couple of very tiny changes.  There are still a few things I need to do in terms of layout improvement....Well I need another step by step guide for dummies :-[ Can you explain how to get the best out of the rockslide-Show. I want to place the slide-show on the page http://www.jobstarters.org

Where to put it? Can anyone give me some pointers as to what I am doing wrong?

See the page http://www.jobstarters.org and with the debug-service-parameters
http://www.jobstarters.org/index.php?id=17&tp=1

Then Look at http://rc.hrpr.com - See the RokSlideShow is running in top module. You can put it in any of the module positions defined for Solarflare II, left, right, top, user1, user2..., etc.

Dear Craig, calvert1977, webdesignernew, Dr. MadCow, ifohdesigns, sky1 and sahiba

Can anyone give me some pointers as to what I am doing wrong?

Look forward to hear from you! You are the great friends for me.
best regards

Appendix: Again - look at the page: http://rc.hrpr.com/ See some good examples http://www.banzaid.org.nz. Found it Rocketwerx-Seite a example installation: See them

well - i am a big greenhorn - where to put the rockSlideShow look forward to hear from you

PS:  Well i want to run it beneath the banner - well if i look at the debug mode: http://www.jobstarters.org/index.php?id=17&tp=1 then i see that i have a place benath the Header-banner [with the ciclyn guys] which is called advertisment.png, o kb The place beneath the place where the banner is shown… can i put the rockslideshow there..? And afterwards i will switch off the banner.

Friends,

In olden days, almost every website had a site map where they listed out all the pages. The purpose of the site map is to help visitors and search engine spiders to find information on the site. Now, a lot of modern websites have dropped the site map page, instead they place the site map in the footer area.

Thanks,

I am assuming that you posses a good internet connection upto 56-128kbps.
Basic of Web designing starts with:
i wont recommend you books.but, love to tell you something free online resorces for basics.
In this business, you dont need to work hard, but work smart is always awarded.
HTML 4.01: [Tim Berner Lee created it] Basic of all webpages.
Use this link: HTML 4.01 [Online Version]
XHTML 1.0: HTML is not so perfect, so XML and HTML combined to form a new edition.
Use this lin: XHTML 1.0 [PDF Version]
CSS: Cascading Style Sheet is addition to HTML and necessity for XHTML.
There are three version for it. css 1 to 3. CSS 2 is currently used for designing and widely accepted by all browser.
