    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to build my own website, and in the last three weeks I have successfully done nothing that even looks like a webpage. It is just a scary mess. I am a newbie to this. I am trying to use Frontpage. Is there by any chance that there is a webpage builder with some step by step instructions as I go along available out there? I have tried the trial version of CUTESite builder, but that left me with even more of a headache. There must be something easier than Frontpage? Thanks in advance...........

    Maybe I should just give up....

    I am going to move this thread to the "Coding & Design" section... I know that you seem to be looking for an "App" that will help you, but in that section all the HTML Coding and Design Gurus will be able to help you more. :)

    You could try Adobe GoLive.

    Awesome, Thanks for the Help.
    Hopefully this will be better than FrontPage or CuteSiteBuilder


    Thanks Gonaads

  9. Swish is also good if you cant get yourself round Dreamweaver - its a sort of simplified version.

    I would also have to recommend Dreamweaver. Just make sure you go through the help files and learn a little about it. It's simple enough to learn, but you might as well give yourlself that extra help.

    Wow, these programs are expensive!!

    Good thing for trial testers! I have downloaded both and now going to install them. I certainly hope that they are easier than Frontpage for a noob like me. Frontpage is depressing to work with. Thanks for all your recommendations. If someone wants to help me setup my first webpage, I won't hold you back, LOL

    I don't know if they are easier than Frontpage, but since Frontpage is a POS they are definately better. Hope you like em! :)

    Dreamweaver MX is, without a doubt, the best WYSIWYG editor out there. Great for hand-coding too.
