(Solved) - Free Website Softwares?(21 posts)
- Remove Solved Status
If you're looking for a basic page editor you have different choices like Amaya or KompoZer which is also available as a portable app from portableapps.com. I tried KompoZer a while back and I was probably being way too choosy about how my html was structured and ended up fighting with it, but if you're not as anal-retentive as I am about how pristine the underlying code is, it will make you a good website and guide you through your choices then generate the code needed to achieve what you want.
I myself actually ditched KompoZer in favor of learning to write the code in a text editor, but you're probably not looking to become a full-time web designer like I have been working at becoming. So go for it dude, one of those would probably fit your needs, there are others, but I am not familiar with them, just google WYSIWYG Web authoring freeware.
And if you really want to dive headlong into the deep end of the pool, you could install an xaamp server and Wordpress on your computer and develop a site locally before putting it up on a public web server. And a Wordpress site would definitely be different than a website created in Publisher.
All open source and free software.
justme2000, that really is a great help.
Google is not always the answer my friend!
Do you have anything to offer at all?
The OP asked here hoping to resolve his quest / request.
The posts, in effect, asks our members if they might have known trustworthy and knowledgeable sites
They boys have been bugging you about what the content will be, but in fact that doesn't change the tools you need to make it ;)
I still suggest you take a look at coffeecup free html editor.
It has a lot of inbuild tools to help you create the site, but also gives you a view of what the html code looks like, so you learn as you go :)
If you want a WYSIWYG editor Kompozer is the best free option.
i tend not to like WYSIWYG editors since they also put a lot of junk in your code and you don't relly learn to understand the code.
Well a good/best website does not imply a lot of fancy-xxxx functions. In my own opinion a good site can be produced with notepad(++) just make sure it has good content and is easy to navigate in. But if you want it to be all flashy and have cool functions you might want to get some a bit more advanced software and unfortunately I do not know any free ones.
