    Default Not a programmer, interested though

    Hello, I'd like to start by saying that I know next to nothing about programming and more about web and graphic design.

    That in mind, I have a couple questions about Java.

    I am wanting to create a program that will allow users to submit information/pictures, then post the information in a subsite (e.g. 123.com/1, 123.com/2, 123.com/3, and so on.).

    I'm not even sure if Java would be the program to use, or if the source for this information is easy to find (I must be too dumb to find it haha.)

    Thanks for your help, i know noobs are annoying

    So basically,

    1. User signs up on your site
    2. User uploads his/her pictures
    3. Pictures get automagically formatted to a size or whatever, maybe even with generated thumbnails
    4. User gets a link they can use to post their image somewhere

    Is that about it?

    1. Yes. photos and text. with some sort of limit on size.
    2. the sub-site created is "linked" to a previously made sub-site of the users choosing.
    think of a tree as more and more subsites are created.
    3. and yes users get a link to share with their friends.

    Yes this is possible. Is Java the best language to do this? Id say no if you're not into programming, however if you wish to learn Java for other reasons then this is something to go towards I guess.

    You can do this in a number of ways, its just a matter of finding the way you wish to do it. If you want to do it in Java, keep in mind that hosting of Java web applications usually costs money and more than a simple PHP site.
