    I understand that most of you are busy, but I could really use some help. I am creating my first website from scratch using html for my senior project. I am currently self teaching myself, and I am stuck on multiple parts of the website. The website url is urbestcar.zxq.net and feel free to take a look. The main page is practically blank but the three car links work. The best pages are on the sport cars link with the first 3 pages. The overall purpose of this website is to show the most popular 2010-2012 cars and allow people to vote on them and also rank them. If you do find time to take a look please let me know how I can make it look better, and even give me some ideas on my main page since I am very new. Also if anyone knows how to make a very nice comment box that can go under each car that would be great, and also I would like to allow the users to vote on a scale of 1-5 for each car and have the scores recorded possibly on another page. My plan is to launch the website on March 31st, so all help would be great, and thanks for taking your time to read this.

    A couple of things ...

    In order to have the voting and comments, you're going to have to use
    a server-side scripting language like PHP, and MySQL database to store
    all votes and comments.

    It looks like your site is all done using static .html pages.

    So, you're off to a bad start right away.

    =========

    Your senior project should include learning PHP and MySQL.
    But, we don't do homework for people (students). If you post some
    PHP scripting that you're having trouble with, I'll help with that.

    =========

    Here's a hint for you ....
    Install a free WordPress site.
    Use a free theme for cars, plugins for "voting",
    and it already has the commenting. Completely
    operational from square one. Your only effort will
    be to customize the theme with your own graphics.
    All of the photos, content, etc. gets uploaded using
    the WP admin (media, videos, text, content, posts, etc).
