Make the website dynamic

So I am developing a portfolio of mine, and since I'm pretty new with HTML/CSS I was wondering, how do I make my website dynamic?

I realize it will be pretty hard concerning the design I have made, since it has shadows and what not in it, but I don't want to be limited to only a fixed amount of space on the front page.

Anyone have an idea?

I think you need to be a little more specific as to what you mean by 'dynamic'. Dynamic in terms of the page content varying according to other factors (eg. URL parameters or such like) - which is often called a 'dynamic' page.

Or dynamic in its visual design, with JavaScript whizzy things etc.?!

Rather than specifically thinking 'dynamic', may be think what you want to achieve and the experience you wish to give your users?

Basic DHTML uses JavaScript.

Interactive websites will use a server-side scripting language like PHP and a database like MySQL.

one thing that might help you make up your mind: if you stick with javascript and ajax then you can probably just pick up scripts from all over the web and bolt them on, easy peasy, without needing to understand how they work. you could have lots of new stuff working by the end of the day.

but with php and mysql, you are much more likely to have to make an investment in time to learn how to make the code work.
