I just re-read this post and am amazed at the amount of knowledge that I have in this subject now, compared to back then (look at the dates). In fact, I have actually been teaching a few others some of the basic skills needed to accomplish building websites. Not to mention, I do know the resources to point you in the appropriate direction.It's confusing, I also need help myself.
1. Read all the posts mentioned in this thread.
2. Read other posts on this forum regarding code and if it will be worth your time to learn it yourself.
3. Get advice from members here that you trust and that are "local" experts. That information is also found within many threads. I am not going to name names for fear of missing some that I may not be aware of.
NOTE: The advertising on this site for web-development is "local".
4. Feel free to post specific questions regarding where your confusion is.
