Thanks for that but just read through the tutorial and to be honest with my very tiny knowledge I don't think this is what I am looking for Sad and I'll need several pages.

Unfortunately there is no *easy* way to do this without HTML knowledge as that's how you'd be creating your web pages. If you're looking for a website then you'd be wanting to go with a free website builder or a paid one.

Forumotion is strictly forums and while you can have custom HTML pages to turn your forum into a website, it does require a lot of HTML knowledge.

Derri is absolutely correct. To build a website yourself, you first need to have a knowledge of the three basic languages of web development ; HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. There is more to it than this though, if you plan on having your own server and storing data you'll also need a knowledge of PHP and a database language such as mySQL.

As for Forumotion, you could wing it with only knowledge of HTML and CSS. HTML is used to for building the structure of your web page, and CSS is used to style your HTML elements. JavaScript can be optional, but it's a plus if you want your pages to be dynamic.

You can find plenty of tutorials online, but I personally recommend this website as it provides good information for beginners in markup and programming languages.

Hello,

If I may interejet with my input as well... I have a decent knowledge of html, I coded and wrote my own html page on forumotion for my forum by hand, while I was given helpful pointers along the way, I did it all myself. Forumotion makes creating an html page EVEN EASIER...

Alright... so on the forum, you write in bbcode correct? Well that pretty much is html, just made 30% more basic and easy to use, you change the brackets and tags and bingo your writing in html. I personally would recommend this refrence sheet, I think you may be surprised just how close html is to bbcode. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/default.asp , that refrence sheet was incredibly helpful to me while I was writing the code for my html page.

Also, I must mention you need to know the VERY VERY basics of css, just make it look a little prettier Very Happy.

-Brandon
