OT: Anybody know a good Website Builder

Does anybody know a good website builder ..a drag and drop type application.
I'm willing to buy it to get it, I just didn't find any that are good ..

Dreamweaver is good but it's more for experts.

Thanks.

if you want your website to actually look good, you better fork it out to someone who knows what they're doing....

Dreamweaver is about as easy as it gets. If you use anything else (like Frontpage) you lose a lot of design and functionality options imo.

I'd take some time to learn some basic html/css coding though...it's really not that hard and can make the look and feel you want easier to obtain.

I used to use Geocities. It was the easiest and its not hard to make your site simple yet eye friendly.


I remeber using it back in the early 2000's when web page building was hot.

Experts definitely don't use Dreamweaver very often.

I know a good website builder - he's me. If you want a good website, hire someone. If you don't want to pay for the work, I suggest learning HTML + CSS (it's pretty easy), Photoshop (that's a fair bit harder) and then use Dreamweaver, it's made for beginners.

Not trying to discourage you, but it's really annoying to see people willing to pay for a "drag and drop" solution, over paying for the work of skilled people.

If you still want an out-of-the-box solution, you can depending on what you want. If you want a blog you can install Wordpress to your server and download one of the 10 000 free themes (a "theme" is actually an entire design). Other CMS's like Joomla or Drupal also have many users who've made free themes (aka templates) so if you are willing to install this software it's pretty simple to grab a theme and install it. There are 1 000s of tutorials out there on how to accomplish this, I imagine anyone with more time than money ought to go this route.

If you change your mind and want to hire a pro, PM me, I'll at least point you in the right direction.

I teach computers to primary school kids and I used Geocities to build webpages with the grade 8 class... So easy and it gives nice results. You don't have to pay for it but you can if you want your own name vice www.geocities.com/whatever.

So I would go with geocities if I were you.

If you want something that costs very little and uses ready made templates Yahoo webites has a sitebuilder feature which is very easy and there are many templates available.
