Question How do open source groups make their pages?


Hello there.

I just wanna ask where or how do the open source groups build their pages and where do they get their simple designs.

Their pages are really simple and easy to read. And I like them. And I'm also planning to build pages based from them. But I want to know first how they build them.

Can you please give me some of the common tools they're using? And also were they get the resources?

BTW I know html but I haven't started with php yet. But if doing PHP's a good solution just tell me.

Your ideas are always welcome.

Thanks in advance

Just my opinion, but some of the best sites I've seen could (at least I think so) be written using html and php, with simple tools (like Bluefish - that kind of tools).

One of the worst sites I've seen, on the other hand, are huge pits full of endless amounts of crappy code, seemingly created using some half-automated software..and they're not even too usable. That makes me believe even more in simple ways and own skills, rather than heavy software.

Thanks b0uncer. Bluefish is a nice tool. It's simple and handy and the exact tool I'm looking for. I guess this tool is enough.

Now about the designs or templates (or just samples) do you know where I can get them?

yes i guess archlinux made a good change from its old light-blue look.

btw do you know a template that's HOWTO look? something like the Kernel-HOWTO. but still have menus? Not that I want to create a page like it. I just want to see its defaults.
