My name is Mack. I brought the 2nd Edition of Build Your Web Site Using ... by Ian Lloyd a few years ago, but I'm just about to attempt to build a website now. I am concerned that I may not be able to use the downloaded 3rd Edition code with the 2nd edition book. Will I be able to use the 3rd edition code with the 2nd edition book without any problems, and if not where can i download the 2nd edtion code? I'm looking forward to learning.

Hi Ron. Welcome to the forums.
I think it would be very confusing to use the code for the third edition with the second edition. There are most likely a lot of differences. Whenever I buy a book I grab the code and store it away to avoid situations like this. Perhaps email sitepoint or @HAWK and see if they can send you the old code.

Thanks for your help, it's appreciated. I sent Hawk an email, but I not 100% sure it was successfully sent. Perhaps I'l try to send a private message. Thanks again

Hawk answered quickly and sent me a zip file of the code. Thank you Ralph and thanks again Hawk.

Great! I hope you enjoy the book. If you have any questions, you know where to come.

Good to know they have the old versions of code for older editions of the book. Hopefully this is covered in an FAQ somewhere?
