What are some incites you have for me to create this site?

What are some incites you have for me to create this site?

I would like to create a website which would allow users to submit an essay. Their essays would be in a timed-environment, and hence, the site should have a countdown timer, which I heard is very heard to implement.

The site should be aesthetically very pleasing, intuitive, and scalable to do more things.

Already, I've registered a domain name, but I haven't gotten it hosted yet. I have no clue which programming language, scripts, etc. to use, or how to go about doing it.

Do you think that godaddy or bluehost is better at hosting this dynamic site for me?

Finally, I heard that wordpress.org has many tools that I could use. How do I test it out? another words, where do I download the compiler or whatever it is that I'll need to play around with it?

    Maybe you should check your word usage... Should be "hard to implement", you're not herding sheep :)

    From Merriam Webster :
    Incites = to move to action : stir up : spur on : urge on
    Insight = the power or act of seeing into a situation

    Very funny. It was very late at night (or very early in the morning, depending on how you view it). I meant "...hard to implement."

    "your not herding sheep" should be "you're not herding sheep".

    your = blonging to you
    you're = short for you are

    Creating an interactive blog site is no simple matter; thus if you are an advanced web developer, this may be possible to do. Otherwise, this could take you hundreds of hours to complete.

    However, there are services such as blogspot (dot) com which do that already.

    I can INCITE a riot by posting inflammatory remarks on Facebook.
    As an electronic engineer I have some INSIGHT as to how the hardware in a computer works.

    I suggest a sophisticated grammar and spelling checker considering how many contributors to TechRepublic cannot write decent English (or American).

    Assuming you're an Electronics Engineer, and not an "Electronic Engineer", your grammar and punctuation are similarly lacking.

    Or, I'm completely off base, and you're a Robot operating a Locomotive - in which case your communication skills are quite impressive!

    Moodle is a good, free tool to use. works on LAMP, WAMP or XAMPP, and is really easy to set-up and run (download from Moodle.org).

    If the goal of the site is for users to login and have 30 minutes to write on a given topic, Moodle would be excellent. It is a classroom content delivery system. You would set each essay as a timed test.

    I downloaded moodle, and it's a very comprehensive site for educators. To me, it's like a more advanced and comprehensive blog site. Here are my questions:
    1. I have a website with moonfruit. Could moodle integrate with moonfruit (or wix)?
    2. How do I change the appearance of moodle? I'd like to change the font, background color, and the curvature of the bevels.

    While shying away from inciting ill feelings toward either hosting company I would like to add my insight toward BlueHost.

    BlueHost is very competitive price wise and the few times I have had to call customer service, they have been very responsive, understanding of the issue and pleasant to deal with. My sites do not have large traffic numbers so I can't judge efficiencies, but then it appears your site will also have little traffic.

    The only comment I have for GoDaddy is that I think Danica Patrick will fail miserably in NASCAR. Besides that comment, I try to stay from businesses with cute, silly names as the business does not engender immediate confidence.

    What's the purpose of the essay site?
    Also, it's "In other words,..." not "another words..." Just trying to help you out if you're going to call yourself "EssayDoctor" running an essay site which would be more effective with proper use of the language. :)

    Holly,

    One is free to state "another words" or "in other words." The former re-states the thesis. The latter implies that the statement resides between words. This is hyper-parsing of the wording, I know. But look it up both phrases, and you'll see that we're both right.
