A couple of basic website tech questions

I'd appreciate if someone with website experience could answer these questions please.

1. Modern business webpages have a "modern" look where the page extends along the full width of the screen, and has separate sections where images, videos and text blocks (e.g. testimonials) can be easily set up on the page. Is there a specific name for this style of website? e.g. SmartPassiveIncome.com

2. I understand wordpress plugins and themes can do a lot of this sort of presentation work along with a lot of other useful tasks marketers use (optimizepress is a great example). If not using wordpress and using a more generic system for creating websites, what are the most common modern coding languages and systems (frameworks?) that are popular to use?

3. There are a lot of websites now that offer all kinds of powerful apps and services, e.g. graphics manipulation, reporting "hidden" social media statistics, keyword research, etc. Again, what coding languages and systems are commonly used to program and deliver these sort of powerful online apps?

I am interested in the frameworks that are powerful, versatile and popular amongst the modern entrepreneurs. Your replies to each question is very much appreciated.

Cheers, Mat

    - PHP
    - Java
    - NET
    - Ruby
    3) Sorry, I would need a more specific example. If it's web based app then any of the languages which I mentioned in #2 should work for you.

    1. One page scroller/single page scroller

    2. Javascript, PHP, HTML, CSS

    3. No data

    4. I hear Bootstrap is popular although I think Beans is more cuddly.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Specific examples for question 3 might be Canva, Getresponse, convertri.com. Stuff that allows serious work to be done online.

    Cheers.

    PS: I thought "responsive" was a site that worked on PC's and mobiles at the same quality (ie. not screwing up like some sites can on mobiles)?
    I guess I'm trying to describe the difference between older sites that fits within a "box", and newer sites that has graphic elements within the main content part of the site extend across the whole page.

    Thanks for the reference to bootstrap ynef, that helps. It gives me a link to two ways to make the same site. You could use wordpress or bootstrap for the same result.

    You should make one page responsive side with the scroller in it. It would be better if you use wordpress theme for that. You can install plugin and it would easier for you to do seo too.

    If you are going to use another technology go for php, css with mysql database

    Thanks sunsetcoder,

    I am not so interested in "ordinary" sales sites, I am wondering what server side systems are used to create more powerful apps that can be logged into by customers. Any ideas?

    For designing the website, you need to learn
    • HTML, CSS
    • and Java-script(Bootstrap is in J Query. and to learn j query, you first need the basic concepts of java-script, HTML and CSS)
    You can use PHP language to create responsive and dynamic webpages. PHP is a very powerful scripting language and it is also a server-side-language. There are also PHP-ID and Security Advisor Checker plugins that you can use to improve the security of the PHP application. You can also use Grabber scanner to check for the vulnerabilities in your PHP project e.g, Cross site scripting, SQL injection, Ajax testing and file inclusion.
    You can use various plugins with PHP language to create a strong and a powerful website.

    Generally speaking there are *tons* of frameworks, languages, libraries etc to develop data-driven web applications. But I usually recommend Ruby on Rails because it offers extremely high levels of productivity during development and it is for this reason a very popular choice among startups who need to quickly prototype and grow/scale apps. I work myself with Ruby on Rails and I love both the framework and the Ruby language.

      Hi Hatuko thanks for the reply. So ROR has the capacity to create a major online system, like a full autoresponder system? Graphics editing? Website analysis, like product sales analysis on ebay or like tracking on facebook? I am curious to know if this system can create powerful online software, and if so,does it have a standard library or framework that is commonly used? Thanks.
