That’s why I wanted to know your experience. You stated you tried W3C; try W3 Schools; they have hands-on tutorials with examples.
Just like with most coding; there are various ways to accomplish a task (just as BenWalker stated with some examples).
My concern was about your security. If you use a live webpage to test and it is not properly protected, someone could use SQL injection and wipe out your entire databases.
I say start from the very beginning and refer to Ben’s statement:
“You’re going to need to look into server-side languages. I use PHP mostly, but many others exist. You may already have chosen one – if so, tell us and we can help more specifically.”
I, like Ben, use PHP and use Wampserver (Windows) to test my pages. There’s also: MAMP, LAMP, and XAMP.
