Javascript lessons on interacting with webpages?


#1

So I have completed the free JavaScript lessons. However, there is one snag. All of those lessons use console.log as a way of displaying the text. However, there are no lessons on interacting with classes and id's or writing to the webpage.
I thought that maybe learning JQuery, but just starting off the page, I was already waaayyyy too confused. It has a whole bunch of unknown code. There seems to be a gap between JavaScript and JQuery.

Now questions is this: will going to the pro version of Codecademy unlock the locked lessons - will those unlocked lessons teach me how to interact with webpages so I can start learning JQuery? If not, I need to find a way where I can interact with webpages.

There are some tools that you can learn on your own as well, there is hacking webpages with built in Web Developer tools in your browser. I might look at Firefox's Web Console https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools, or Chromes Web Tools https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/.

The problem here, is that there is no set lesson structure. It will just show different types of methods and keywords. I would prefer to actually have a lesson plan like Codecademy has.

Hey,

I saw this maybe it's what you are looking for
https://www.codecademy.com/en/tracks/projects

If you sign up for pro then you will have access to the extra projects in JavaScript course.

Take a look at MDN-javascript, there might be somethings you are looking for.

Using jquery is a whole lot easier then using javascript directly.

But you can do it:

c = document.getElementById('idname');
c.innerHTML= "hello world";
