    I'm know alot about HTML, and I know some JavaScript, but could
    someone please help me out. I need some help making a code for logging
    in and creating a username and password. I know lots of websites have
    them, but does anyone know how here?

    What do you mean by a 'login-table'? Usually this requires more than
    just HTML-knowledge as a 'login-table' involves always server-side
    technologies (you have just mentioned client-side techniques).
    A proper login involves at least a proper session-management and usually
    also some profound know-how about database handling. You have to make
    sure, that you implement your login-function in a secure manner
    (protection against x-site-scripting and SQL-injections...) If you are
    familiar with PHP and MySQL-Databases then it shouldn't be a problem for
    you. If this sounds unfamiliar to you I suggest reading a good book
    about MySQL might help you.

    Thanks, that's kind of what I meant, as in what programming language
    do I have to learn. I've never really bothered with programming. I
    tried out C once (just to try it) and got involved with other things.
    So maybe I'll get into it now.

    Bernhard is right, what you "need" is dependent on what you are trying
    to accomplish. If you only want to discourage casual visitors from
    browsing sections of your site, something as simple as an .htpasswd file
    may be all you need. However if real security and access control is a
    concern, you will need to learn more than just a language. C might
    work, so could Python or PHP, but they are methods of implementation,
    not the solutions.

    I hate to sound paranoid, but security is an area where a little
    knowledge can be disastrous.

    I'm not making something to important, only experementing right now. I
    was thinking of making a site where you could make photo albums. This
    idea is at it's stone ages, but I was trying to think of how I can use
    a Log-in style page instead of one with cookies
