    I have tried and tried again to work on my website, but learning from scratch is frustrating, and worse it breaks my website. Perhaps a more senior member would be willing to give me a crash course or maybe another noob wants to learn with me.

    If you're not making your sites with Wordpress then you should start. It's the easiest platform to teach yourself. Read a bunch of shit to fix specific things you need changed from whatever theme you're using and soon you'll know what you need to know

    Then as you come across things you need to figure out you'll get better at knowing how to work your way through it. I know nothing about making websites from scratch and I can make a site in 48 hours on Wordpress and sell it for 5k

    Pit Thanks for the advise, that pretty much boils down what i have been doing. My website is on the Wordpress platform, and though i am making improvements the going is slow. I suppose that the work is just a part of learning to be successful.

    There is a learning curve with Wordpress, but it's a lot easier to use than trying to code a website yourself from the ground up. I was fortunate enough to bein web design before wordpress was around and was forced to learn HTML, and I will admit it comes in handy especially when tweaking things in wordpress. Perhaps you should learn some basic html and take some udemy courses on how to manage your wordpress. Just a thought.

    Sythix, its a good thought learning more about how a website functions cant be a bad thing. I know some basic HTML, but not enough to be considered proficient. The issue i am running into is time management, the work it takes to get traffic eats up quite a bit of my free time, learning how to, and applying the knowledge to my website is slower going because of this. I will defiantly check out Udemy, i have heard of them before but never looked to far into what they do.

    I generally work with all wordpress sites, but maybe it's just because that's what I got comfortable with so many years ago. There are so many ways to code a site now. There are tons of WYSIWYG editors that are relatively easy to figure out with drag and drop simplicity - add-on modules, etc... So today coding/designing a site really depends on a mix of both function and form. It's about what it does and what it looks like.

    I do agree WP is very easy to learn to work with.

    I do agree that wordpress is very easy to use. This Is something simple to learn and you will be able to learn quite a bit there and later down the road, you can always go with something else.

    Sounds like a lot of people are recommending learning through WordPress which is very encouraging since it is the direction i chose to go with. So far it has been a friendly platform, and there is so much i can do with it. Time to hit the books and learn piece by piece.
