You’ve got a pretty good handle on HTML and CSS basics. You’ve built your first site to zombie thwacking applause and then you expanded, thwacking the snot out of the horde, but you can go further.
In this book we’ll do a little site maintenance to make your building job easier and your site more robust. We’ll then expand the store side of the site, adding a page for each item (giving you more zombie-smashing weapon slots, so to speak). Once that’s done we’ll add some interactive HTML and CSS. We’ll first add a form to the donation page and explore some of the form HTML elements and attributes we didn’t get to in Expand Your First Website like select, option, multiple, min, max and step. Next we’ll create a set of drop down menus using CSS pseudo classes and the direct descendant selector combinator. Then we’ll add a full, interactive photo gallery where you can change what large image is shown by clicking on a thumbnail. We’ll discuss the :checked pseudo class and the sibling selector combinators.
Didn’t do the earlier books? No worries, we’ll provide the files from the end of the previous book so you can get down and dirty with that zombie stomping code immediately.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get to the further expanding of that first website of yours!
