Scripts and Website Design Tutorials
In designing my own websites as well as for my clients, I've
that can be used by any webmaster to enhance their website that don't require a Master's degree
in programming. They're all well-documented so that you can add changes and enhancements.
I have worked hard to make every script here as useful as I can and to make them
simple to install. You'll find that each of the packages below comes with good step-by-step
documentation and you don't have to register your EMail address, your mother's maiden name,
submit to a full-body search, or provide a blood sample just to try them out. In fact, I don't
ask for any information at all. All you have to do is click on a button and the scripts will
download to your computer.
All of these scripts and tutorials are "linkware". You can use the
scripts on your site free of charge, and I hope you enjoy the tutorials. All I ask is a link. It's a simple
principle of value given for value received, and all done on the honor system. Since these are free scripts,
my ability to provide personal support is very limited. But the EMail address you'll find
in the documentation is my real everyday EMail box and so if you send a message, I will receive
it and do my best to respond as time permits. Thank-you!
