Firstly i know very little about anything relating to web design other than a bit of basic html and css. I did manage to build a site, be it very basic and poor.
Everybody has suggested i use a cms and wordpress was mentioned the most. Ive been reading various odd and ends, watched numerous youtube videos but am getting nowhere.
Ive looked at loads of themes and found them to be too complicated or just plain ugly. I loaded up responsive and tried to edit the css to add a bit of colour if nothing else but when i looked the code was pages and pages and pages long full of all sorts.
Its obvious i’m out of my depth and i’m wondering if i should just go back to basic coding and forget about cms. I would however like to use something where i don’t have to spend hours just to add a page. php is certainly out of my league and being able to build a decent contact form using one of the plugins is very appealing.
so before i give up are there any words of encouragement and advice you can give somebody like myself. Is wordpress even for me, i’m not a blogger and just want a simple elegant looking website with several pages a contact form.
I had a few concepts but as i’m not artistic they were a bit rubbish. The responsive and BlogoLife theme were similar to what i was after
