I use Dreamweaver CS6 but it gives me problems for stability. Tried to install updates and it wont take.

 

So I am looking for other visual tools that may be on par or surpass it.

Thanks

Notepad ++ being my personal tool of choice for coding as you requested a visual version (WYSIWYG) then Kompozer might be your best bet.

All WYSIWYG editors suck. You'd be better off learning how to code well, as others have basically said. I like Visual Studio for all of my code, but I'm using ASP.Net on the backend, not PHP. Notepad++ is a good alternative, or EditPad Pro.

 

That said, if you're familiar with Dreamweaver CS6 and you're wedded to WYSIWYG, you should try to solve your instability problems. You're not going to find anything quite as good, and that instability problem is likely a symptom of a deeper problem in your system's config.

Thanks for the answers guys. I appreciate it. Yes I am embedded you can say to Dreamweaver.

I must find a solution to this problem. Kompozer looks pretty cool.

You'll love Notepad++ until you discover Sublime Text.

 

Try and move away from visual editors, you're only being crippled.

I discovered Sublime Text, I prefer Notepad++ to be honest.

Happy user of VS 2012 here.  I used to think WYSIWYG editors were the way to go, until I hit the limit of what they can do, especially in data-driven web applications.

 

Now, I write all my HTML code by hand, and skip the editors completely.  It's a challenge at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's amazing how fast you can crank out high-quality, fast-loading sites.

Use dreamweaver most days in work usually for a quick visual peek of stuff but I find that I generally use it as a code editor and little else. Make code changes - upload - view straight in browser.

See that is the the thing I am a visual person so working only in code does not help me. I will admit I am not a straight up coder and many people here are more advanced than me which is OK, I am cool with that.

I do know how to read most code and deconstruct it. I never wanted to be a programmer but for the web I am alright with it but to make my own program that is not me. I would rather design things in Illustrator or enhance photos in  Photoshop, etc..

 

Still I appreciate the advice. NotePad ++ looks like a winner for coders

Well if you get WebStorm, you can live code html in the ide and an open Google Chrome will display them in real time.  If you're a visual person this is about a good as it gets.

upload?

When developing I suggest to use localhost to work on :p instead of testing stuff directly on the website...

Only if you're not sure what you're doing or if it'll work.

 

Uploading is fine most of the time.

For WYSIWYG, nothing comes close to Dreamweaver.

I use MS Expression, however it's not going to get updated anymore so I'm also looking for something else... 

 

However if you want a web version you can get Mojo Motor and try it out. I plan on getting it.

Use either:

 

Komodo Edit - [ Download ]

 

Notepad++ - [ Download ]

 

Notepad2 - [ Download

 

or you can just use a text editor that's built into your OS.
