What's a good web editor?


Is there a good graphical web editor out there for Linux (Redhat 9) other than Netscape? I'm looking for something easy like Front Page.

FrontPage (and the likes) are to webdesign what
a bucket of coulour is to a miniature aquarell. Learn
to code HTML.

Well you could always spend the money and use dreamweaver or frontpage :-)

dreamweaver MX works with crossover and I think frontpage might as well (at least the 2000 version)


Of course I personally use bluefish.

Is it really necessary for morons like Tinkster to respond with no useful information?

To be fair, in my humble opinion he has a good point. I appreciate that WYSIWYG editors are easier but the code they generate is pretty shabby at times.

Tinkster is simply saying that rather than use an editor and risk a section of the internet population not being able to view your webpage properly due to invalid code, learning to code correctly in (X)HTML Transitional/Strict may be a better path.

Having tried a few different editors, I decided that: to ensure that my target audience (people with were new to computers) would be able to see my web pages, I had to code good quality HTML.

Still, it's up to you, hope you find the right WYSIWYG editor for you from the thread :)

Quanta doesn't seem to have been updated in more than a year now.
NUV probably wants you to compile the package ..

any other suggestions folks .. ?

Compiling software isn't that difficult, and the tar.gz on Nvu's website is the binary, you just untar, and run it from there. No mess, no fuss, although they do allow for a source download, so you can build your own version. Whatever seems to float your boat.

Bluefish, my personal fave, is fast and customizable.

There ar e absolutely no instructions with the nvu.. I did untar and tried to run, it's compiled for Debian 2.26 .. I have a FC2
it complains about some shared lib's .. so it's really not of much help.

I dread compiling with out "ANY" readme ior configure script in the package.

I tried nvu windows version, it's gui is quiet awful, like almost 10 years old UI.

Any other suggestions would be welcome

thanks

Go back to the page where you downloaded NVU, and look for the section where it says:
Quote:
Source Code

1. If you want to build Nvu from source, click here
Move your mouse until your cursor (the little arrow on the screen) is on the words 'click here'. When the little arrow turns into a little hand, press the left button of your mouse.

When (if) you get to that page, read it carefully, and look for the section that says:
Quote:
# Get the Nvu specific code:

1. Save this file and uncompress it into the mozilla directory created above.

tar xfz nvu-0.30-source.tar.gz

2. Save this patch file, uncompress it and apply it from the mozilla directory created above.

gunzip trunk-0.30.patch.gz

patch -p 0 < trunk-0.30.patch
Do the same thing with putting the cursor over the words 'this file' and pressing the left button, then over the words 'this patch file'. You should be given the option to save each of the files.

Enjoy!

You can't go wrong if you follow those instructions.

Please use _some_ common sense. Your atitude is horrendous, and you're giving me (and probably everyone else) the impression that you think you have some form of divine right to the help of others. A big misjudgement.

Isn't that much easier? A simple make and a make install?

Well you never know, maybe you do something about that! How about... putting the shared libs where its looking for them?

I appreciate that Linux is hard for everyone in the beginning, but at least have some courtesy and try to make an effort, or just stick to your canned software.

The interface looks pretty nice (Judging by the large screenshot on their page).
