I will be very interested in seeing what answers you get here, I made my webpage just through word and I would like a program that is as close to word as possible as it is so simple, I am not into all the webjargin, someone did mentio dreamweaver but then someone else told me it is too hard and I don't want to spend all that money for nothing..So I will be watching your responses

I see that you are an advocate of word. I've tried it before but I didn't publish it on the web. It is really simple but I think it would be an advantage if you would try something new. Coding might be hard at first but then you'll be itching to get your hands on the keyboard once you've tried it.

yes I know, the only reaon I want to do it with something else is my page has been archived my our National Library but because it in word they can't downloas it I had to send them a disk so on their webpage they still have my original version I have changed a lot since then but someone on here said that Dreamweaver has a part where you use it like word, drag and drop so to speak, I would like to know it that is true....

Macromedia (now a day Adobe) DreamWeaver is very good, but it not a free software. You can download a free trial version that will last 30 days. So, you can try it. With that program, you can develop your page as "Coder", if you are to use Html, Css and so or, or you can choose to use it as "Designer". In this last way, you don't need to know the HTML code, you can work via interface. Just "Drag and Drop" the object you mean to put into your page..it is very simple. With a quick tutoriar, you can find a lot of tuturial around the web, you will be able to build your web site. I suggest you to try it, at least. Bye!

Hello Katkat, The best software to start designing web page is Microsoft Frontpage. It comes within the Microsoft office pakage. It is much like Ms word. I hope u will love it. I personally use Ace expert to make my web pages. It is much like MS froent page but has a vivid look. :D Happy designing. :D

I personally didn't use any external software to build my website, I just coded it all from scratch, to be honest, as I found it much easier than trying to get my head around a whole new program. The one thing I would recommend to you, which is completely optional, is SmartFTP, if you're on a sub-domain or domain. However, if you're on a free client, like freewebs/bravenet, then you won't require it. Optionally, if you're wary about downloading a new application, why not try net2ftp.com - it's what I use, and it's completely free, so I recommend it!

hi, u can use MICROSOFT EXPRESSION.(comes with Office 2007).. really it has so many features. it is made for newbies. if u dont have MICROSOFT EXPRESSION then my suggestion is DREAMWEAVER 2004. MICROSOFT EXPRESSION supports only microsoft technologies (that is it supports asp.net, html, Jscript). But DREAMWEAVER supports all technologies (including PHP etc.,). i'm using DREAMWEAVER for static webpages.

There are a bunch of programs out there (such as FrontPage and Macromedia (Adobe) DreamWeaver where you can drag and drop elements and such... For straight code editing, like in HTML or PHP, I'd recommend an IDE or editor such as CodePress. http://codepress.org/

Web design doesn't have to be difficult. There are several WYSIWYG web design software out there. I use weebly but that has its limitations like most free site builders. Usually I would just use NVU with a template. I heard Dreamweaver and Frontpage is kinda difficult to use. Theres a new software coming out soon called Site Rubix. Its a drag and drop website builder that I'm really excited about since I spend most of my time building pages and this is supposed to be time efficient along with a host of great features. Theres more information on this page http://hubpages.com/hub/site-rubix-easy-website-builder

Hi friend, I think that it depends on what kind of website you want to create.If you want simple designs then you can use HTML and css and simple images created using paint.But if you want a more artestic designed website then as one of the friends said you will require some artestic softwares like photoshop or coral draw.Using these you can create highly artestic images which can be used in the site.But such things are required for big professional sites only, for personnel sites HTML css with MS paint is ok.
