Please help a noob!

Hi everyone, I’m very new to creating my own websites and I want to start out simple. I would like to create a very basic website that contains a static text box, an output text box and a button. No bells, no whistles, not even any colors.
The function of the button would be to produce a random sentence (taken from a list I have) and then display it in the Output text box. Please see the attached image for a visual depiction. How do I go about doing this? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hi lucozade33. Welcome to SitePoint. :slight_smile:

It sound like you need some scripting for this, such as JavaScript. It would be good to know more about the requirements here, as it’s not totally clear yet. It the static text something like a hard-coded title?

The steps (I would take)

HTML- learn about html forms and you will probably use “<textarea>” for the two text boxes. (HTML Forms and Input)

User clicks “submit” button.

Some form of code (Javscript, PHP, etc.) puts a random sentence into the output text boxes’ “value” attribute.

Let me know if this helps/ Is confusing!
