...now I am aware that this has been brought up before, and I have also read the stickies
but things change quickly and I need advice based on my own situation. The following
bullets sum it up quite well I think...
* I have exactly £zero to spend;
* I need to maintain it myself regularly and quickly;
* I have an idea of the
design in my head which I am going to map out in a graphics editor first;
* It will
incorporate CSS and HTML - absolutely no flash or 'fancy fancy';
I have iWeb
but it is not going to do what I want it to. It is discontinued, has no SEO without
bodging it up, and won't do the CSS that I would like it to do.
For an idea of
what my end result would be look at this cheeky Manc website
. I want to do the 'frames' style navbars,
but using CSS as frames is old and not appropriate anymore I don't think...according to my
developer friend anyway. It will also incorporate a media player hopefully, and I would
like the main page content to come from a database if possible so it updates via that
rather than hard type directly into the website code.
I have a smattering of
HTML knowledge and I could probably find what I need for CSS, but really I don't have the
time for hand coding and probably don't have the necessary skill anyway. I need a
powerful WYSIWYG editor or an open source design heavy IDE akin to Dreamweaver - so my
options (handly explained in bullets again) are...
* Hand Code...Nooooooooooooooo!
anyone have any experience using any of these and can help me assess their suitability?
I'm going to download them and have a play around, but anyone who has had experience of
them would be really helpful. In fact, any advice on this would be really helpful.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long winded story!
- I want to make a website. I know what I want and how it will look, so how do I do this
with no talent and no money on my MacBook?
