...you've got an idea for a website, but have no idea where to start?

I'm not talking about a simple WordPress site because everyone knows how to do that.

I've got an idea for a site and I doubt I could do the whole thing on WordPress because that's where I'm at right now and it's not working out too great.

I want users to be able to create their own pages with their own information and uploads. For example, a less complex MySpace.

I'm aware that I will most likely have to build this site from scratch.

I'm also aware that this is a massive, complex project that will probably take a long time to build.

But I have absolutely no idea where to start. I know very little about code beyond CSS, HTML, and simple PHP, so any tips on different codes to use would be awesome.

Right now, I'm just looking for some advice or direction. Actually, any programming advice or advice from anyone that has built sites from scratch would definitely help.
