    Easy people with your titles, can get me light headed . . .

    Java

    First, Java is Not javascript, javascript is NOT Java.
    Second, what "skills" are you having problems with?

    Sorry, if you misunderstood me......I have no real understanding of Java. I need some basic guidelines to clarify this.

    Thank you for your reply, but can you break it into unstandable language.

    language

    That's about as simple as I can put it. What exactly do you want to know?

    java

    ok, as a novice and have a website which was built for me, all work that has been done in the past aswell done by someone else.

    I have to learn the basics, even though i have just taken possesion of my new laptop. I want to start my learning process.

    But, I think I better walk before running. Basically I should have waited a bit longer to ask such a question.

    Sorry for your trouble

    taking over

    OK, I think I understand your situation now. If you want to take over, there's lots to learn. But you should be able to do more and more as you learn. I wouldn't try to learn Java or javascript first. Before you learn coding or scripting languages you should understand basic page mark-up, - the HTML.
    The easiest way to get a feel for this is to look at your pages in view-source.
    Then you should take a look at CSS. The way the page gets styled.
    After that, you will be in a better position to understand what javascript does.

    There are lots of good tutorials online that will help you learn about all the tags. I like the w3schools tutorials http://www.w3schools.com/
    And htmlgoodies http://www.htmlgoodies.com/ and webmonkey http://webmonkey.wired.com/ too, but of course there are lot's more good beginner tutorials online.

    And if you get stuck, don't forget the forum.

    After you get a handle on the basics, then you can start learning about server-side stuff depending on what you have to work with. You will want to learn how to upload changed files to you site's server. Some hosts have good control panels, but you may prefer using FTP.

    As a final note, getting in the habit of using comments will save you from headaches later. And always save a copy of any file before you replace it just in case you need it again.

    Java

    Thank you for your great advice, that was what I was looking for but I put it in the wrong format.
    I will not forget the forum as it has been of immense help. And always will be.
