I'm praying this fits into this forum. If not, someone feel free to lock it I'm wondering... What do YOU feel are the right tools for your website? Do you run a database driven website on PHP and MySQL? A nifty Dreamweaver based site made of pure HTML? Or do you venture into the lands of Flash? And do you host your own site or does someone else? Personally, I run the first.. my website is composed of HTML, PHP and all of the database entries are stored on a local MySQL machine that I set up to run off of my home PC. At first I took the time to learn the basics of PHP and MySQL so that I could store entries and later recall them on my website for future reference. It was fun and nifty, seeing how I could handle so much... It was a dream come true. I could finally host my own message board and not have it crash due to bandwidth restrictions (though, my ISP doesn't like all the traffic I get ). I've done a lot of my website's actual design in Dreamweaver and have done the graphics in Photoshop 7. And right now I'm working on a new website design that will allow a "user commenting system".. after anything added or a picture or just about anything I want to, users can add a comment to the database and it'll be read back to them. While this isn't monumentous, I do find it challenging and fun, since I've never met anyone (in person) who's handled a database driven site like mine So, how about you? What do you use?
