MAJORITY VOTE : DO YOU USE HTML ETC OR A WEB AUTHORING PROGRAM E.G DREAMWEAVER?(8 posts)
If you're talking about pure HTML (like in notepad, or such) versus a Content Management System ("CMS", like Drupal or Joomla), or a WYSIWYG editor, like Kompozer or Dreamweaver, there are advantages and disadvantages to each, that generally depend on the user level. Not sure what you're trying to accomplish with a "vote".
Generally, more experienced users and developers write their php, css, and html code in a pure form in IDE ("Integrated Development Environment") software. Others use a CMS or WYSIWYG environment.
There are some pretty sophisticated users here, so I suspect your "vote" will be all over the map. To get a more meaningful evaluation, you'd probably have to stipulate the user level . . . "beginner", "intermediate", or "expert", "geek", or "developer".
Some experts can just spit out the code, know exactly what it will do, and don't need or use a CMS or WSYWIG.
I do not have much experience with CoffeeCup. I use Kompozer because it can be run as a portable application, from a USB device/drive, and doesn't require installation on a PC. I did not see that feature available in CoffeeCup.
hi guys, heres the thing i know a fair amount of php html css js etc but when it comes to getting the webpage to look the same in all browsers i utterly fail , so using a wysiwyg sorta thing makes it way easier for me to create reliable websites easily. any help on how to make a website look the same ? thanks guys !
You would have gotten better. faster response if you had just asked your question from the beginning, instead of posting this pseudo-poll. That said, do a search on "writing html for multiple browsers" to find out information on how it's done.
