I became interested in making a website recently but I don't have an idea how anything works. If you guys know any good websites, tutorials or forums that teach how to create a website please tell me. By the way, is it necessary to learn HTML5?

Well, the "official" place to learn about web design and such is here: http://www.w3schools.com/ I also always recommend this book: http://www.amazon.com/HTML-Instant-Ruth-Maran/dp/0764536273 for the really basic stuff. There used to be a really great forum at this address: http://webxpertz.net/forums/index.php but it seems to be down at the moment. Also take a look here: http://www.pageresource.com/html/index.html . Might be a little old but still good stuff.

I like Joe Barta's HTML tutorials : http://www.pagetutor.com/html_tutor/index.html

HTML 5? No. You do not have to learn anything actually. Just use an editor like MS Word or OpenOffice Writer and save files as HTML.

Please DON'T do that. Use a dedicated HTML editor like Kompozer (free) but never let MS Word (never tried OO.O's HTML output) belch out what it calls "HTML"

Excuse me while I take Romeo29 out behind the woodshed and enlighten him...

Hey

I'm an admin at WebXpertz. Our forum is indeed down at the moment. Sadly, I can't say when it will be back up. <_<

I agree that Lord Pollock's tutorial site can be useful. There's also a book, widely praised as a guide to learning JavaScript. Makes a great holiday gift. B)

What do you want the website for? Do you want to learn HTML and web design/programming? If you just want to put up a personal website and aren't really interested in having to learn a bunch of stuff to do so, you might check with your ISP. Many have web space available and provide on-line tools that allow you to create simple web pages.
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!

Actually I'm going to start an online business in the next two years and I am planning to learn it now. Is it too late? LOL

It is never too late. I suggest you start now. I think you can join a professional course too and you would get a certificate.

I see, thank you for all the suggestions! I think I'll join a professional course and learn it by myself at the same time.

p.s. btw, what is the term for making a website?

Generally it's called "web design."

Just got this idea yesterday, is it wiser to hire professionals who are better at this? I'm learning but also looking for "shortcuts" into this business.

If I was in your shoes I would hire the professional and do it as well. Most web designers will give you access to handle easy stuff like uploading new content or adding new items to your inventory for sale. Finding a professional that is willing to work with you will go a long way and will help you learn how to do it. Just make sure that you are up front with him/her (some of the design professionals are a little unique).

Good Luck.
