    I recently ceated a website with webs. Playpad its a music/gaming website.
    Most of its members will come from ppl i met on dsi sites. Because of this im adding a AJAX coded 'dsi compatable' s chatroom
    like those found on dsicade and dsipaint.

    Because im using the webs site manager this has become quet difficult to install. I found one that looks nice an im thinking of modifying it to fit the dsi screen.
    its open source an you can find it HERE. If that one doesnt work or look right i will use THIS ONE.. But i cant get them working so i dont kno.

    So any help on installing them would be appreciated. An even better if you have a better simple dsiopera browser compatible script i could use. Also help on coding these to the dsi screens would be VERY much appreciated.


    [NOTE: my site currently has little or no members as i made it a few hours ago an havnt told anyone about it yet]

    You're using Webs? Eww. It sucks.
    If you have to use Webs, at least purchase a domain. It doesn't cost that much and it makes your site seem more professional. I advise you fix the grammatical/spelling errors on your site. That will detract some viewers from joining your site.

    Go code your own site.

    Most of the time using all this free shit looks like crap.

    With what I've gathered from your general vibe, I'm recommending that you should just stick with template based host until you learn some proper web-designing languages and skills.
    HTML, Javascript and PHP are all languages that can be picked up with simple practice, and they're the basis for more advanced languages.
    Try NVU. It's simple, efficient and free. :]

    You could also trial/purchase/pirate Adobe's Flash and try designing a website with that. Actionscript is useful for introducing concepts like Object Oriented Programming anyway.

    Thank you for all the info.

    I have decided to take some time to learn more webite development skills before i start my site. Then when im ready il create a quality site from scratch.

    It took me less than an hour to learn html/xhtml off by heart from w3schools so i will make an effort to learn what i can before i start. mysql and Ajax are what i am most unfamilier with. Also i will learn php as well as i know html. I know realise my 1st major mistake was webs >,< its quick easy and pure crap so a few days ago i changed to freebeehosting. I will let you all know when im finished with my site.
