OK so my sister wants me to make her a website so she can attract customers to her massage business, the website is going to be basic as it's going to be my first but I want to make it look nice and maybe dynamic using PHP.
A question I had about php is - Do I have to use it? Or does it just make the website more functional? You can just run a basic XHTML and CSS page but that wouldn't look so good.
I've been recommended to use wordpress as this is quite easy to use but I'm not sure if it's good for practice, if I don't challenge myself then I won't get better, if I try to run away from the errors that I may face without wordpress then once I'm given a hard project without wordpress, I'd be screwed.
Is their any other languages that I should use?
