    New style of web page design/layout like BBC

    I don't have much web design knowledge and have only really dabbled with a couple of web sites myself. What i have noticed is that more sites now seem to be suing a similar style ( what i refer to as a modern design)

    Is there a specific way or specific software that you now create sites like this or am i barking mad?


    Any help or advice?

    I think the word you are looking for is Web 2.0. Take a look here and do a google search for web 2.0

    the kind of style of web2.0 can be done really easily with photoshop CS nowadays, there's even sites of free templates
    for instance
    Free Website Templates, Free Web Templates, Photoshop Layouts

    because its all layers in photoshop its a complete doddle to alter a few pics/writing, find some royalty free pics on the net and export it out.

    Using a RAD framework can also help. I've been looking at CakePHP
    There are also others for PHP: Symfony, Zend, CodeIgniter etc... There's frameworks for other languages too. Apparently Mozilla Addons uses CakePHP.

    Part of the new look BBC site is it's usage of JQuery ( jQuery: The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library ) to enable drag & drop functionality etc. It's a really nice JS script that's worth a play with.
