HTML is pretty darn easy. It's not even a programming language, it's just a bunch of formatting tags. If you've ever used the [img] and [url] tags on the forums... it's not much harder than that. All you have to do is figure out how to play with tables.

I made my pages in a text editor (emacs FTW!) One of these days I should probably get off my lazy butt and learn PHP or Ruby or something.

Pascal was great. It was like being taught to swim with gentle, friendly dolphins before being tossed into the piranha pool of C.

Fix'd.

I'd recommend looking into learning a little HTML or just grabbing the first WYSWYG program you feel comfortable with. You can spend a long time on simple designs with either so it's best to have a clear idea in your head on what you want and how long you're going to spend on it.

Dreamweaver and Web Elements have some handy features if you don't want to spend a lot of time learning about code etc, personally I use HTML Kit for the preview function, but that's only good if you code by hand.

Oh, sure, you can alter my statement but you can't edit the transposition in "worth". Rolling Eyes

Editors...

Fuck typing! Dreamweaver yay!

I only use it for tags, file management, and previews though. It shaves so much time off hand-coding for me, and time is something I don't have.

The typo makes it authentic. Besides, me correcting people on language skills is a major case of pot and kettle.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I want to learn html and I get the bare basics (bold, italic, paragraph, etc) but what I want on the site, well-- even I know it's a bit more than I can handle given the deadline I've forced on myself. I still plan to learn it but I'm afraid if I put it off long enough to learn what I need to know, it'll never get done. I'd rather have the decent site first and learn code when I'm not rushed. I'll be starting grad school in the fall and I want to work on getting as much as I can into the archives so since I'll likely fall behind, I'll still have material to post.

If you plan on making frequent updates and news posts then I would recommend using the blog software Wordpress with the ComicPress plugin.

The hands-on approach to Web design is the best for me. HttP to get the information, and good-ol' Cascading Style Sheets to make sure it doesn't all look like complete crap. Now if only I could get around to actually doing it...

Thanks, I've looked at several different applications for updating webcomics
but this seems to be the most recommended. It doesn't really matter to me which one I use... so long as it works Rolling Eyes

Tygry... do you have to have a dynamic site. Or would you be okay with a static site that you manually update?

And does it have to be blog form?
