Website Help

Hello,
I'm new to building a website, this is my first ever website,
I'm stock on 3 things.
1- How do I move the boxes (Accontnumber, Usser, Password, submitt) to show to the right of the image.
2-How do I add texts to the buttons,nothing happens when I press on any button. (I guess I have to link them somehow).
3-Is there any way that when I move the mouse over the login button, a small box pops up that has the (account number,, user name, password, submitt  -- same info as above)
please refer to this website www.lexcourier.com (under the login button).

Again, please be patient as I'm still learning.
Appreciate any help.

1) I can't see the CSS, but one way to do this would be to set an absolute position for the box.
2) What buttons?
3) That's what happens for me now.

Hi Paul,
1-I tried all day yesterday with this absolute position, Nada, zip, either nothing changes, or the whole thing moves somewhere else.
2- Home, services, system,.... if I press on any of them nothing happens,
3- ?

Okay, I guess we're talking about the attached text file, not lexcourier.com.

First off, <tr> tags go inside <table> tags.  <td> tags go inside <tr> tags.  Like so:
<table>
  <tr>
    <td>
    </td>
    <td>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>

Buttons are not links.  A link tag (also called an anchor tag) is formatted like this:
<a href="place where the link goes to">Click me to go somewhere</a>

That said, W3 Schools offers excellent, free, HTML tutorials with hands-on examples.  I highly recommend it to you:
http://www.w3schools.com/

These sites may also be of some help:

You need to learn these 3 technologies:

HTML - for writing the site's contents
CSS - for styling the contents: positioning, colors, etc.
Javascript - for dinamically changing the content (animated sliders, zooming, mouseover, etc)

Also, for interactiong with data and/or having some action being performed by the server (resigstering an account, logging in, etc) you will need to know a server-side programming language, such as .NET or PHP. However for using properly a programming language there will surely come the need to use it paired with a database system -- such as, let's say, MySQL.

Each of those subjects have this own learning curve and I wouldn't expect anyone to feel comfortable coding an actually working website - implementing all these technologies - in nothing short of a few months of study. The best books and tutorials on each of these technologies range in the hundreds or thousands of pages.

That said, w3schools is a GREAT place to start, as paulmacd suggests.

Hello,
I understand the basics,
I dont want o be the expert like you GUYS, just want to get through without an IT guy,

I attached a simple sample, all I need to know is one thing,
how do I add information to each page , with out having to use <a href= "...........

So basically,
if I hit button one, I want to see the information for button one (page 1)
if I hit button 2, I want to see the information for button 2 (page 2)
and so on,..

thanks

I don't understand clearly what you want. You want to press a button and be redirected to a different page? Or you want to press a button and have the information on the current page changing its contents?

Wow - that's a lot of CSS/javascript.  What's wrong with having multiple pages?  You can keep the buttons... Wass-QA.htm
