    Hi. I'm new. I've has a website for a year and can never get to use any of these cool scripts I see around.

    I know my CPanel works because me guestbook works fine but I want to learn to use PHP (or something) to creat cool things.

    Problem is I just don't know what to do! I have tried many times but always end in frustration.

    Is there a place online where I can learn:
    Where to put the files in my (home) webpages?
    How do I call them?
    Does the page need to be setup as HTML first?
    And a dozen other questions a novice might have...
    :confused:
    :)

    To learn CGI, the best book there is for starters is CGI 101 which is the one that got me going. I bought 4 or 5 books before this one and couldn't get the hang of it, but once I got this one, I found it easy.

    The CGI 101 in my reply is a link to the book at Amazon. That's where I buy many of my books.
