Program for website? (design, ... )


Where can I find a program for making a website? I have Kompozer, but it's difficult to use.

I'd highly recommend learning to code HTML first, and well,
using your preferred text editor, and then start thinking
about making your life easier based on a sound understanding
of what you're trying to achieve. There's enough bad/sad
sites out there already.


Cheers,
Tink


P.S.: I've split out your new question from your original
thread because they're unrelated.

What kind of website do you wish to create? There are many options for creating websites. I would give you a different answer for a Blog, a store site or a social community site. You can easily create a site using a editor but that requires using and understanding HTML.

Bluefish is a recommendable tool for creating web pages and maintaining web sites. The choice for HTML/website tools is often a matter of personal preferences, so you will have to kiss a lot of frogs, before you find your perfect match :-)

what he said

website USED to be simply a collection of html pages and their related images on a web server, or if someone wanted to get fancy, an application running under cgi-bin (common gateway interface)

nowadays a website could be a php, asp, jsp, cold fusion, etc.. script stored and executed on the web server

so the answer depends on wether you wanna develop in straight html or a server-side scripting language like php

i personally just use a text editor and hand code everything, but then again that's just me

there are also alot of pre-built content management systems, forum packages, etc.. in php, asp, etc...
although if you are using linux as your base, php would be the reccomended server-side language

Notepad2 is a great little editor for Windows that is free, and provides some color coding, which makes coding much easier. If you are just planning on dabbling in some HTML work, I would go with something free. You don't need to pay much, if anything, for an HTML editor.

I do a lot of coding, and use Macromedia Dreamweaver for almost all of it. It is now made by Adobe, and is somewhat expensive. It provides color coding and code hints for HTML, as well as PHP and a variety of other web-based languages. Dreamweaver makes it a breeze. You can even view your results real-time as you code in HTML if you like, although I've never used that feature.

You may find a copy for cheap on ebay or something. Just go back a couple of versions to Dreamweaver 8 or so, and it may not set you back too much.

Even if you eventually get a more sophisticated web design environment, I HIGHLY recommend starting with something like Bluefish + This book:
