Newbie web designer, what to use??

By serval7 ·
Ok, I don't have much experience with database programs, I have used Access in the past and it seemed pretty intuitive for me, (I'm good with MS products).

I have Dreamweaver MX and have been designing small (non-interactive) sites for some clubsin my school.

I want to know what I should use to create pages such as the ones in www.intranets.com or www.communityzero.com that have message boards, picture galleries etc.

I think they use databases to store all members information and the messages/discussions/pictures posted. I don't believe it is a very hard thing to do (at least not hard enough to verify 100s of $$s of charge).

I would be glad if you could point me in the right direction for this.

Extra special mega-super thanks in advance for all help..

Hi
You can try using Java or one of the scripting languages like ASP to acomplish your task. You may also need a good backend like SQL server

Database connected web sites

You mentioned that you are already using Dreamweaver so my inclination would be to tell you to read up on Cold Fusion. It makes accessing databases, as well as displaying result sets very easy.
