Build Your Web Site Using ... Can 3rd Edition Code Be Used With 2nd Edition Book?

Hello everyone,

My name is Mack. I brought the 2nd Edition of Build Your Web Site Using … by Ian Lloyd a few years ago, but I’m just about to attempt to build a website now. I am concerned that I may not be able to use the downloaded 3rd Edition code with the 2nd edition book. Will I be able to use the 3rd edition code with the 2nd edition book without any problems, and if not where can i download the 2nd edtion code? I’m looking forward to learning.


Hi Ron. Welcome to the forums. :slight_smile:

I think it would be very confusing to use the code for the third edition with the second edition. There are most likely a lot of differences. Whenever I buy a book I grab the code and store it away to avoid situations like this. Perhaps email sitepoint or @HAWK and see if they can send you the old code.

Hi Ralph,
Thanks for your help, it’s appreciated. I sent Hawk an email, but I not 100% sure it was successfully sent. Perhaps I’l try to send a private message. Thanks again

Hi Ralph,

Hawk answered quickly and sent me a zip file of the code. Thank you Ralph and thanks again Hawk.

Great! I hope you enjoy the book. If you have any questions, you know where to come. :slight_smile:

Good to know they have the old versions of code for older editions of the book. Hopefully this is covered in an FAQ somewhere?
