These are my resources in designing my website.
WordPress – I installed WordPress last year when I decided to have a blog. Since I already have an existing template, I searched for some free wordpress themes and studied how they were made. I then integrated/incorporated my homepage template into wordpress theme to maintain a consistent look.
EasyPhp – I use this program to test my php driven website to work under Windows.
Winsyntax – a free PHP-code editor. I like it better than Notepad since it has text highlighting, multi-window tabbed interface and multiple history of undo and redo.
