I want to make my own homepage. I would it like to have sections, tables, where it pulls the headlines from various sites and displays them. The active desktop stuff I have seen people using is pretty neat. Would I be able to incorporate that into a personal homepage?

Basically I would like to make a personal homepage, in the webspace provided by my ISP. On it I would like to have the headlines from other websites. When I click these headlines it would open up the corresponding website. It would also have a google search bar and maybe a calendar and a little notepad thing. Oh, and maybe something that checks my email accounts every x hours, and displays the number of new emails. Its been awhile since I have touched HTML, so I am kinda rusty. Anybody have any ideas as to how I can go about doing this stuff?????

Thanks
oDin.

The way I learnt was to experiment. To try and explain/tutor/suggest how to design/build a website would be meaningless, there are so many variables (software, styles etc.)
Try finding a site where there are tutorials and ideas, there are many around. Put "web designing" through a google search and see what happens!! ( I got 400 hits)

You'll need more than HTML that's for sure. I suggest a server side scripting language like PHP or ASP. Perl will do as well. The details i don't know about though. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
