Well I know this might not quite be the place for such a question...but I feel that this forum contains people a hell of a lot more competent than just about anything else out there.
I don't even quite know what I should be asking...and that is the problem. I'm searching for a bit of direction and I'm sure some people here could provide it.
I'm very interested in web site development.
Now I've learned a bit of things here and there....just simple html and css.
What would I do from here? A lot of my website ideas would need database support...so I suppose mySQL is a necessity.
For example...one of my ideas is simply a website that displays new material every time it is refreshed. This would have to come from some database. I would also like users to actively be able to add stuff into the database, of course first being checked by me, very similar to Wikipedia.
Now..should I just jump right into mySQL? Can I reuse a 'script' for the time being until I start to learn more? Perhaps even dissect the script to learn from it?
Is there something else I should learn prior? Perhaps something else entirely?
I'm not worried about the entire graphics aspect of the site yet...I just want to be able to get stuff like this running...then I will make it beautiful.
I apologize for my incoherence...but I'm sure you can tell at what I am trying to get at.
If anyone can give me a direction, or guiding hand, I would really appreciate it.
