Firstly these forums are great and kudos to all those people who spend time answering questions and helping the less experienced like myself. I am slowly gaining experience in how to use RW, Stacks etc etc but I recognise following a number of threads, that I grind to a halt as soon as I want to do something that the stack in question hasn’t been designed to do. Whilst I understand the difference between HTML and CSS, I can probably do little more than get “Hello World” up and running on a blank page and then make it bold… (and I was very proud of that and then suitably embarrassed when I realise what other people are capable of).
A simple google search brings up lots of resources on how to learn HTML and CSS - my question is what would you recommend as learning resources to get better at this stuff?
Also (and I suspect this is an even more basic question), I have decided I actually haven’t a clue about how this stuff sits on a server and how it should be structured. I’ve learnt a few tricks from lurking here e.g. make sure index.html isn’t still on the serve if your page needs index.php (couldn’t begin to explain what php is) but I have no idea whether (for example) there is any merit in putting pages in your root folder or in subfolders (as long as they have different names). Rather than rely solely on Google (which returns 1.5 billion results for the phrase ‘learn HTML’), anyone got any resources they really value that will help get a relative novice up the learning curve. I’d love to help other people but my knowledge on this stuff is relatively limited and, at the moment, I would do more harm than good!
I throw myself at the mercy of the Forum
p.s. to embarrass myself even more, over 30 years ago I used to be capable of programming in Fortran and Pascal so unless senility has caught up to, there must be some basic memories of programming principles lurking somewhere in the grey matter…
