@scuzzman

Thanx,

As far as searching is concerned, it is good idea, but it gives u 100s of results and u have to check each of the result then will get the best result.

As u gave me 10 results now i have to use each one and then only i will get best one.

I asked this here, just if someone tried it here any tool earlier and would like to help. Any way thanx.

Have you ever seen Quanta Plus? You call it easy? It will take you a long time to learn how it works. Set up Apache, php and MySQL and start to learn about it instead. Do you know HTML? CSS? Google for this info, not for GUI's, they can't do the work for you if you don't know what markup is. You want a professional web resource, you say, you want a database support and dynamic content. The only way to do it is to learn. And then all you need is only a nice text editor like Kate. There is no GUI's for what you trying to do, that's all.

I think you might be looking for a Frontpage for Linux or WYSIWYG.

No such thing.

Have to learn HTML, no easy way out. I have seen sites done with Frontpage and the code is so screwed up.

I just want to check whethere it there any means to do that or not. As u people are saying that there is no such tool. Then it is fine i will go for php.

Now, tell me which database to use MySQL / Postgress and why?? i had heard that MySQL is popular and good ! What u people say, plz. share u thinking !!!

MySQL is popular and good and in use everywhere. Don't forget, php comes with "built-in" support for MySQL. I found a nice "Installing Apache, MySQL and php on Linux" guide, if you need it it's here

emailssent,

Although your question about a web page editor seems to be answered:

I also switched recently from FrontPage to Quanta. I virtually don't know HTML except for maybe 10 tags. I hate building web sites.

In FrontPage you edit in WYSIWYG mode, but you see things happening, and you have no idea about what you get. You upload hundreds of files which you don't know why you keep them for.

Because I am moving away from Windblows, and install Linux on more and more of my machines, I had to move to Quanta.

The first night I tried Quanta I was overwhelmed, and screwed up the GUI. The second night I tried to understand what was going on and I READ THE MANUAL.

It is IMPORTANT that you start with an existing web page which you modify so you have a kick-start.

In two or three days you'll start to appreciate the flexibility of the programs, the cleanliness of the code you generate, and the possibilities to work together with your local and remote files.

I would not want to switch back anymore, unless there is Quanta for Windows :)

PS. I admit that the VPL editor is not perfect. I don't use it. I don't need it.
