Was wondering if anyone out there can reccomend a wso or course for this?

somehting with step by step videos works best for me since i am totally challenged from a technical point of view.,,,and i find that looking over someone;s soulder is the best way for me to learn.

thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    What type of site are you thinking to create?
    Just a normal HTML pages?
    Or you are looking for script driven site?

    I suggest you just need to learn how to change some existing templates, instead of learning everything from scratch.

    To create a professional looking site take time and experience. You will not be able to master them in a short period of time. A better choice will be to outsource it.
    Unless you are want to be a website designer/creator, you just need some basic knowledge of HTML or/and CSS so that you can change some basic stuff.

    This is a site that teach some basic HTML, you might want to check out
    HTML Tutorial, Web Design Resources and Tools

    To short cut the path of learning, you can buy HTML editor that assist you in constructing the html coding. Some editor comes with default templates that allow you to modify them for your own need.

    You might want to consider learning how to user http://wordpress.org/ instead. You will have a lot of theme (template) to choose from for your site. This is a faster way to kick start with your site.

        It is not free, he is asking $67.00 for that course.

        Better to go to the free web sites mentioned already.

    htmldog.com is a good free resource to learn html. Even if you get a program that automates the web process you still need to know html.

    OK, apologies in advance for the shameless self plug...

    But Todd, the WSO I posted last night might be of interest to you.

    All about how I overcame the "newbie website creation" syndrome myself.

    no need to apologize dave.......i figure that starting out i will definitely need to use templates......everything about im seems like a step by step procedure.....you start out using steps to make things easier and then as you learn you grow to more advanced steps....one step at a time.....

    at least that looks like it is going to be my approach.

    thanks again to all......every suggestion is appreciated

    Wordpress looks like the way to go to me. I'm basically at the same point your at in trying to figure what platform I want to go with. I looked at Dave's WSO earlier today and it looks like his offer is a great place to start....

    Start with Wordpress or some other blog.
    Contuinue with your host's free sitebuilder (many hosts have them).
    Regarding content, page organization etc. - it depends - what type of site do you have in mind?

    best place to start in my opinion would be with a cheap hostgator hosting package. setup wordpress via fantastico, and start learning the wordpress cms inside and out. blogging, and wordpress use are a great starting point for any newb marketer right now.
