In 2020, you can now build a website without HTML, HTML5, CSS, PHP, JS, or any type of coding skill. Actually, I can’t remember the last time I’ve needed to edit the code.
And if you’re never built a website, you probably don’t know what any of these acronyms means.
But HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language and we’ll stop there to avoid any confusion.
In-other-words, there is a standard universal languages used to create single or multiple page websites.
And here’s a little secret you probably didn’t know about me. I don’t know any of the languages apart from HTML & HTML5.
This means you can build a professional looking website yourself with the right theme, page builder and a few plugins.
Here’s why I Can Build a Website without HTML!
Between using themes from WordPress.org like Astra Pro and Kadence Pro, page builders like Elementor Pro & plugins like Ultimate Addons for Elementor, I haven’t used or needed any coding skill. I’m good!
But for you techies who wish to keep your coding skills tight and the newbie’s who want to enhance your skill. I’ve come across a few sites I like.
Where can I find a good HTML website?
That’s easy. Open your favorite browser and do a quick search for “HTML websites“.
Your search will generate so many sites that you could spend 2, 3 or maybe 4 hours trying to figure out which one communicates with you the best.
So, let me share a few of my favorite sites in hopes of saving you some time so you can get back to building your masterpiece.
What HTML sites do I use and why?
Often times I forget the HTML code for copyright, special symbols and a few basic tags. So, I keep a few HTML sites in my back pocket so I can grab the code I need real quick and keep it moving.
W3Schools.com: Is the one I use the most. They have a few educational tutorials that will teach the language you’re looking for, but I’ve never taken a course.
HTML.com: Is for beginners. So, if you’re new to the game and want to learn coding, this is the site I suggest.
HTMLCheatSheet: Will probably be my new favorite HTML site for several reasons.
- They make it easy to find what you’re looking for.
- You can add characters to your site in two clicks. 1) Copy and 2) Paste.
- They make it easy for you to get the code you need by using their WYSIWYG window.
However, sometimes you need a few HTML codes for special characters or symbols that you don’t use very often.
But if you did a search for an HTML site, you’d probably waste a bit of time trying to figure out which one fits your need the best.
So, I wanted to share the HTML sites I use so you can get back to building your website using WordPress.org.
But when it’s all said and done, the advancement of themes, plugins and the WordPress platform, you can now build a website without HTML knowledge.
