Using HTML code in website design tool

Hello Everyone.

I am trying to build a website where in i can write html code and java script for a submit click event. Most of the site builders provide various forms and html fragment app. However html fragment doesnt allow to use ahrf tag or using post get method so that I can have customize click event to post data from one page to another or to have customizable code written. I have below queries.

1. How to have customizable site created having access to html code as above?
2. How can we maintain database if required?
3. How can we maintain user specific info eg. the list of liked items for particular user when he/she logs in.

Can anybody help me here suggesting suitable website builder or app/widget to address the same.

Why such a restriction?

In reply to: Using HTML code in website design tool

I can use any number of HTML editors and upload my file to the site. I'm guessing you want to make something else but I may be wrong here, but don't you write code for the backend to do such things? But I'm being unclear here. Are you a programmer or just trying to build something without programming skill?

its a limitation I found with website builders

Thanks for your reply Bob. I tried wix.com, create.net everywhere they allow me to add html fragment eg. Creating textboxes adding buttons etc. However when I write a code for click event it doesnt redirect. I know html though I am not a very well experienced in it. I do not think I am doing any mistake tagwise. But it simply looks impossible to have connectivity with ref pages.

Ahh, website "builders"

OK, time to go back to basics then. Try the old fashioned web page editors and then upload the page.

What do you mean by that? How can I use them in website builders. I had created pages using front page or simple html file run with web browser. Are you talking about web builders which use old fashined web page editors? Please point me to exact req tool

How did you get here?

In reply to: old fashioned web page editors

Sorry but as a Web author you would take classes or dive into HTML and more. Then you take programming classes if off the shelf apps and web sites won't do.

Front Page and such are for folk that want to dive into web work without learning how it all works. That's fine but here you are and it's time to hit the books, classes and web to learn more.

There is no exact req tool but close to a few hundred now.
