    PHP or ASP.net, HTML (not really a coding language), Javascript and CSS should be sufficient.

    If you are a c++ programmer, you will pretty much feel comfortable with C# (asp.net)

    In response to your PM, you can choose between PHP and ASP.net, but the rest are all fairly mandatory in order to create a good website. Depending on what you want to do.

    To implement your ideas, you need your own site first.
    If you have got a site, just tell us about it's engine and language; then we can advise.
    If you have not got a site, just choose a free CMS and go ahead; no language required.

    really depends on what you want to do with your website. if theres some sort of database implementation then SQL would be good although there are lots of tools already available which can help you without needing to know the code. But a basic knowledge of HTML is a must

    Hi OP, you haven't mentioned what you want to achieve? What are your ideas in your head that you're talking about? Do you want to do design? User interaction? Backend programming? If backend programming then what kind?

    I don't know where you're getting your time estimates but CSS shouldn't take nearly that long to learn. Neither should Wordpress. Bootstrap should take longer.

    You are going to want to get into some Database design and relational data, and it could turn out to be a length project and a good deal of learning. There are various approaches to doing this in programming and web.
    Going at it in raw php would be a good learning experience, but also building it in a framework such as Laravel would be good practice for future builds as well.

    Overall, you cannot go wrong with learning mysql, php, javascript and practicing with some ajax here.

    if you ain't got any website development skills then i suggest you learn from ground-up starting with HTML and CSS. learn the foundation of web development. HTML is like the structure of most/all websites out there, it's like the mainframe of a house and CSS gives the structure design, it's like decorations in a house. after learning the foundation, go with the languages the gives the website functionality. Jquery, PHP, Python or Ruby. that's how i learn. Goodluck.

    Are those 'Ideas' more like visual ideas about how do you want your website to look, or scripting ideas about how stuff should get done from coding side of view.
    If you think about visual ideas, you should learn html/css (which are not really programming languages). If you think about scripting ideas, you will need javascript and php.

    you could learn html5, PHP5, CSS, Javascript. Html5 will assist you to create a better interface, CSS will help in you styling like creating a better interface by customizing html5. PHP5 will help you to handle the data part of the website. Javascript mostly will help you validate information that goes into your website. Better of, you can learn how to use wordpress if you would not consider coding from scratch since it is object oriented.
