How do I build a website from scratch? Answered

I am trying to set up a website and not having very good luck with it. Any simple instructions? I am using a template, but every time I try to change text or pictures, I end up back at the same home page  and can't see how to make my different tabs open up to display details for each tab. Clueless....Any help would be great.?

Creating a website from scratch is a long process that cannot be answered properly here. But to start with, you can do create a website using WordPress. Just create your account there, select your website name and url and launch. You will have a basic website.

Thanks for all of the comments and suggestions. I actually paid for a course to work from home online, and apparently my browser would not support publishing the site that they walked me through setting up. So now I am at square one with finishing up the web site, but I am having some problems getting it completed without their step by step instructions. I'll see what I can find using some of the suggested sites. Thanks everyone. BTW I have no desire to build anything else by scratch.....ever :)

You forgot the bit about melting the sand down first.

That reminds me, there's a book I need to get about making a toaster from scratch...

Now I've got a great book on making a Crystal set, pretty well from sand wood and a small forge.....

"Voice of the Crystal" - I highly recommend it.

How exactly are you going about it.

I found Google sites was very user friendly.

+1, it's been a few years since I've used it but Google Sites was pretty straight forward.
