Ok, it's about time I actually learned to make a decent webpage. How do I get up to speed and learn what I need to know?

Great question! I need to know the same thing so I can have a page up-and-running in a few months. I'll be watching this thread.

Learn me up! :-B

Yahoo has a pretty decent setup system so I have heard.

I would also suggest you learn some basic html language codes. That is always helpful.

Look into Dreamweaver and there are tons of tutorials across the web, but I can't help you yet as I am taking a class later this year to design a webpage.

How about geocities? I've heard you can make a decent page with them.

Geocities is ok. I'm not a huge fan. I liked the options you get with Tripod but it was a pain to update because the editor page wouldn't load sometimes. I use Bravenet now and its decent. All of those sites have free hosting.

I'm going to try all of those options, but how should I go about learning to use tools like dreamweaver? I mean I want to learn to do a lot of the things that are automated.

Dreamweaver is your friend. It's like a glorified MacPaint program. When I say it couldn't be any easier to use, I mean it: it has got to be the easiest page building program out there. The amount of code you need to write yourself: 0%.

I bought a dreamweaver book that came with an installation CD, allowing me to use Dreamweaver for a month for free before buying a product key to remove the trial period countdown. If your project will take you less than a month, I'd strongly recommend going this route ;-7

Right on! I got Dreamweaver and a book called Dreamweaver: The Missing Manual.... wow! I could design top rate websites in no time.

Also, learn this if you're starting out. Your best friend in web design is the template. Get a template and you can design the most kickass website with dreamweaver (and fireworks is great too) in no time.
