Free Online Resources to Help Learn HTML and CSS

The thought of learning a new language can be a bit intimidating at first. Especially if instead of Spanish or Latin, that language is Hypertext Markup Language, or HTML. To a novice this may sound scary and one may think that instead of hypertext, “this sounds Greek to me!” In addition to hypertext markup language is a stylesheet language, known as Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS.

With Volusion’s free templates, Design Gallery Access, InstantHelp and Built-In WYSIWYG Editor you can change the look of your online store with no HTML or CSS knowledge. However, if you do want to take some extra steps to jazz up your site, all web pages are written in ASP/VBScript plus HTML, giving you the ability to customize your store without limits.

Here are some great resources from HTML.net. The lessons are free and only take some time, and some determination.

    How do I do dynamic server-side includes of content in Volusion? For e.g., I want to include some HTML in a specific div from my server daily. Any ideas?

      Hi, KayNay. Unfortunately, Volusion’s built-in ASP pages do not allow you to specify your own server-side includes. Having said that, you can absolutely use an iframe on any page of your store to display another websites contents. For more information on how to configure this, check out w3schools.com’s article on it. The benefit of using an iframe over a server-side include is that it will not subtract from yours store’s monthly bandwidth allotment. Hope that helps!
