Hey guys ok so I'm writing a little website for my (artist web page you know) and I have few questions.

So for now: What's the best way to put 'news' on your website? make tables and then put it in there? Use some widgets? I'd like it to be linked to my facebook page so may be, I could put the Facebook news in there somehow?

ideas are welcome please

There isn't a right or wrong way.

Best practise is to get used to div's and CSS. Get tutorial reading.

you need to learn far more understanding than this.

if you want news, your best bet is to use a pre-written content management system (CMS)

if its just a static website that you will very infrequently edit, you can just write it in html.

if you are using the CMS, and you want to write this on your own, you need to learn SQL tables, php(or perl), html, and how the three interact, and to make your site more dynamic, javascript or flash (i highly recommend not using flash)

while its a good start, you need to make it more consistent in style and easier on the eyes if you want to get returning visitors.

Making a good looking website isnt an easy task.


how are you hosting this? are you buying server space?

id recommend you take a look at joomla, its a CMS that just needs to be installed and its good to go, http://www.joomla.org/
e/ oh and its free

well thank you yeah I did the design inspired by my bandcamp design and I want to keep it simple a bit and have that feeling of may be underground?

I wonder about joomla really, cause I need a nice hosting solution right now. And I need it free.

hmm are you sure it's for free? cause it says 30 days free trial

Oh, joomla is a content management system, not a hosting server.
And, im almost certain its free, otherwise theres Drupal

For a host, nothing will be free unfortunately, but when you do look for one, make sure it has CPanel 11 as its user interface.

going to be impossible to have free hosting in that case

yeah I saw that coming really but the thing is that I'm using my Bandcamp (which shares teh same design) for my music streaming so the bandwidth won't really be affected by the music nor the video since it'll be off youtube

I think that's a nice solution really but still I need a hosting service name that'll do it for free
