    Personal Blog HTML5

    Hi folks,

    I watched "the social network" movie last night for the 10th time and every time i watch it i want to do stuff web related.
    I want to make my own simple html blog like mark has on the film ^^

    simply

    <header>

    <title>
    <blog post>

    <title>
    <blog post>

    <footer>

    i was wondering how i can make my own blog without using wordpress, only using html5.
    im novice at this stuff, i can make simple sites for now.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Kind Regards

    Adam

    You really cant. Not even a simple blog, let alone a social network to compare to FB. Any site you want to update frequently ,and especially any site that will store user input NEEDS a CMS: be it WP, Joomla, Drupal, or something you create on your own; this is where your post and comments would be stored.

    So in addition to HTML and CSS you will need PHP or ASP , MySQL and perhaps some Javascript.

    Also... there is no <blogpost> tag, you probably want to use <article> and the <title> tag only goes inside the <head> tag in a document, you probably want to use <Hx>

    Well, that depend. If all you want is to 'blog' then you are in the wrong forum WP has tons of themes ready made you could buy/get for free. Done.

    With a little knowledge of CSS, HTML and PHP and familiarity ( and this is in important ) with THAT PARTICULAR THEME' s code ouptut, as all themes output their own code.. you can edit the style and code output you can change the look and way that your information us output/coded.

    With a LOT of knowledge of the above PLUS the WP codex ( a list of all wordpress functions and commands) you can build your own.


    the learning curve is, as usual, proportional with the rewards.
