Hello everybody.

 

I want to create a website, but I am having immense difficulties with the smallest things with Html because I am a newbie. This is my first attempt ever to think about delving into HTML and websites creation, after spending a relatively long time with mundane computer use tasks. Recently I have been thinking seriously about having a website. I didn't know at first what software I should use, but later I decided to use Dreamweaver, for I thought it would be a good program that would have all the necessary tools to develop a well structured and complete website. I thought using Dreamweaver would not hinder for me upcoming phases related to hosting and such, as far as, a lot of people, obviously, use it. Also because I still do not have sufficient information about hosting. Nonetheless, I have noticed that Dreamweaver is not an easy program to use, based on the complexity of HTML.

 

After going through some small steps in my first page creation, putting a header image, I have put a menu bar with the help of some Youtube videos; nevertheless, I could not position it the right way I want, for at first there was a small space between the menu bar and the header image, later I have managed to delete the space, but it seems that the menu bar goes over the header image with some small inches. So, I would be delighted if someone could help me with that.

 

Another serious problem is that when I try to work in the coding area, I make some alterations, but they do not appear in the design section, until I click on live mode, or go to the navigator.

 

I am in hopelessly in need!

ps: I hope I wrote in the right section of the forum, and that I didn't break any rules. In case I did, please forgive it, because I have just joined here yesterday! Thanks in advance.

To start with you cannot determine what anything on a web page is going to look like by previewing it in Dreamweaver. It is not a browser and does not render the same as a browser. If you are just learning then you should only using two tools. A modern browser to see haw things are going to render, and a flat text editor that forces you to learn coding.

 

You should not be working through levels of abstraction that you get using tools until you understand how things work at the basic code level. If you want to learn right then use a reference like this site, and and editor, not tools that encourage you to not learn detail.

Hi guys, thank you for your replies, the problem was with the div tag. I could not position it the right way, till I changed it to "absolute" then became able to drag it wherever I want. Still, I am encountering other sorts of problems, that seem to me mostly related to the program, dreamweaver; however, I am getting over them... I will still need your help. Thanks a lot :D
