sir, i want to really thank you for the great impact which you have demonstrated through your online tutorials which i am one of the beneficiaries.
i have also created a standard web site based on HTML5 without javascript on it.but i believe JavaScript  will be the next tutorial i will start every soon.
sir, i  am having a little challenge with php and html script which i created a database with only field names as first and last, database called brighton, table called infor in wamp5 server.so when  i insert the values through the php script it will also be inserted in the table but when i try to insert it in the HTML web page form i created it will only add blank record in the table without inserting what i wrote in the text box.
here is the code for the two
i am using NOTEPAD++
*HERE IS THE PhP FILE I SAVED WITH insert.php


<?php
$user_name="chibuike";
$password ="bright";
$database="brighton";
$first=$_post['first'];
$last =$_post['last'];

$con =mysql_connect("localhost","chibuike","bright");

if(!$con)
{
die('could not connect:'.mysql_error());
}

mysql_select_db("$database",$con);

$query ="INSERT INTO info( first, last) VALUES('$first','$last')";


mysql_query ($query);

echo "<script type ="text/javascript'>\n";
echo "alert ('you are successfully registered');\n";
echo "</script>";
mysql_close();
?>

HERE IS THE HTML FORM , I SAVED IT WITH index.html

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<h1>my first webpage <h1>
<FORM NAME="form1" METHOD ="POST" action ="insert.php">
firstname:<input type ="text" name ="first"><br>
lastname:<input type ="text" name ="last"><br>
<input type ="submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>
PLEASE WHAT CAN I DO TO RECTIFY IT
the exact please is the line that reads 
$query ="INSERT INTO info( first, last) VALUES('$first','$last')";
so when i use the name i wanted to be in the database field record as VALUE('John,'Frank')";
it will drop successfully but when i use
 of VALUES('$first','$last')"; it will create an empty record at the table even when i must have typed the names in the HTML WEB PAGE FORM.

Good news if you're in India - I've lowered the price for the VB NET book. It was £5.49, which is about 475 INR. The new price for Indian students is £1.49, or about 130 INR. Hope this helps! (I'll do a similar deal for the C# NET book, if this works out.) The page is here on the site: http://www.homeandlearn.co.uk/bookshop/net_india.html

I'd be interested to hear from those in other countries where you feel the price of the VB NET PDF is too high. Maybe I can do a similar deal!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. Just been writing a new Javascript course. Almost done. Lots of stuff for HTML5, especially the canvas tag. There's even a section on how to get to get touch-enabled devices (iPad/iPhone, etc) to work with the canvas.

Another post - twice in one year! I must be on a roll!

I've been adding updating courses these last few months. Excel and Word courses are now updated to 2013 versions. Both the NET courses (VB and C#) are now up-to-date. Lots of my time has actually been spent on somebody else's site (my brother's). Seriously, never tell your friends and relatives you can programme!

Lots of request for ASP NET. To be honest, I don't have a great deal of love for ASP. I am playing around with it, though. I have Microsoft's Web Matrix here and do like how easy Master Pages make updating your site. One of these days I may even get around to actually writing a course.

I'm also playing around with Excel VBA, and am writing some beginners stuff.

The big news is that I've scraped the Home and Learn exam site. (That's the smaller homeandlearn.org site and definitely NOT the main homeandlearn.co.uk one.) It wasn't getting that many visitors, but was taking up a lot of time. There was no money in it so I decided to wield the axe. Many apologies to those of you were actually enjoying taking the course questions. Hopefully, I can integrate the questions into the main site. I've made a start on this - in ASP NET!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while - I get really lazy with social networking sites!
 
Currently working on updating the VB NET and C# NET courses for the Visual Studio Express 2012 versions. They won't be on the site for a month or so, though. The next full course will, hopefully, be one with Windows 8 phones and tablets in mind. So you'll be able to write your own apps for the Windows store. I thought about doing a course for iPhones/iPads, but to be honest Objective-C is not a language I know well. I know you can write apps for Android/iPhone using Javascript/HTML5/CSS with the excellent Titanium, and that would be my preferred way of doing things, so maybe next year!
 
Just want to reply to those who don't like the fact the some of the code is actually images on the site, so you can't copy and paste. I appreciated how frustrating this can be but, honestly, you'll learn more typing it all out for yourself. You can copy and paste from the eBook versions of the course, however. Even so, I still recommend typing it all out for yourself.
 
Thanks to everyone who has left a comment, and for all your support of the site - really appreciated it!

No forums, Kate. But if you get stuck, you can email via this page: http://www.homeandlearn.co.uk/. Scroll down and you'll see a Contact US link on the left. Can't promise a speedy reply, though.

Just added a new Javascript course to the site! There's 58 pages of lessons aimed at beginners to the subject. You do need to know a little HTML, but not much. If you're interested in HTML5 there are 15 pages of tutorials on the Canvas tag, plus 2 on Geolocation. There are also sections on Forms and Javascript, image manipulation, rollovers, and tons more!

Finally finished the new Web Design course, and it's up on the site. Like all the Home and Learn course, it's free! I wrote it so that you won't need to buy any software - you'll already have everything you need. You can use any operating system, as well. The course covers HTML, HTML5, and CSS. There are over 60 pages of lessons, so it'll probably take you some time to finish! http://www.homeandlearn.co.uk/WD/WebDesign.html
