web authoring software

By paulette conlan on Saturday, August 04, 2001 - 07:00 pm:

Any recommendations on any inexpensive(<$100),intuitive web authoring software.I want to set up a basic webpage with a few links for a group that I'm active with.My priority is concentrating on learning my imaging software thus I don't want to get involved with a high-powered program such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage. I downloaded a 30 day trial program from Ulead called Photoimpact and I've been testing that. Also downloaded one called AceFreeware but that seems hard to figure out. I had started doing a page on Yahoo but after I upgraded IE to 6.0 (dumb move)I can't download their pagebuilding template until 6.0 gets off the beta sometime in September. Anyway it's too slow to work online with a modem connection.We're still waiting for a faster connection in our part of the woods.Any suggestions would be appreciated.Paulette

If you're a registered Photoshop owner you should qualify for their special $99 price on Golive (it's the app I use to maintain this site).

I'm using golive now as I upgraded from adobe pagemill...the pagemill is the best beginner program but I'm not sure if adobe still offers it...if there's any way you can get a copy from another software company it's a good starter program...otherwise golive is the next step.

Hi Paulette, if you have Netscape Navigator 4x, it has as part of its package a basic web page editor called "composer". Its quite straight forward.. looks much like a word processor and writes all the html code behind the scenes.

I also recommending getting one of the 'dummies' series of books on html. From your description of the type of page you want to make, it would be very simple to do and you would not have to learn a lot of html code.

I design web pages using a combination of hand coded html (using notepad) and dreamweaver (for speed).

If ya have any specific questions feel free to ask

regards ~Vp~

Thanks for the advise.I have IE6 now. Can I have two browsers on my computer at the same time? I have the HTML4 for Dummies book but I thought I needed some software.Maybe that would be enough for me combined with the Image Ready on PS6. I used to do programming back in the olden days and I suppose I could figure it out.I'll look into the the GoLive and Pagemill-good suggestions.Perhaps they will have them in the computer lab of my local community college where they offer graphics classes and I can take a look at them.Paulette

you can run multiple browsers on your PC. However IE only lets you run one version of its browser. Netscape allows you to run multiple versions.

To create a webpage all you need is a text editor (like notepad) and a browser to view the web page.

The text editor is used to write the html code and the browser is used to display the html code. (when saving the file from the text editor make sure you change the file suffix from .txt to .htm)

When I am working on a webpage , I willl generally have notepad open and a browser. Each time I edit the html in the notepad and save it, I will then reload the page in the browser to see the changes.

Its quite a straight forward process really. If you have the dummies book, I would set aside half an hour and just dive in

For a basic webpage, you shouldnt need alot of learning time.. specially if you have some programming skills..

have fun ~Vp~
