Honestly:

- If you want to get something up quickly, then WYSIWYG is probably what you want.

- If you want to do it properly or learn something in the process, go down the manual route.

No. Use WordPress and a free theme to start.

I use notepad mostly for coding.

 

As the replies stated, there are many programs that offer WYSIWYG.

 

Some are free and some are retail.

 

Look around and see what is best for you.

 

Adobe and major companies have expensive programs that offer lot of features. If you can't afford, then there are free/cheap ones based on your needs.

I would use either WordPress and get myself familiar with it as much as I can or you can try our tools like Adobe Dreamweaver or Microsoft WebMatrix. WebMatrix is a little more code centric but quite frankly to be able to successfully operate your own website you do need to be able to at least get your hands dirty from time to time. Other than that both WebMatrix and Dreamweaver have lots of templates and wizards to help you get things setup (such as config settings, database connectivity, publishing to Azure, source control, etc). Try both tools out and see which one works best for you.

 

Actually I learned HTML myself with Dreamweaver 1.0 and later version. Kept in design mode and just changing a little codes here and there as needed until I slowly stated getting more comfortable writing the code myself and using the visual editor for more of a reference as I was going along than a design tool itself...

hi

it's still in beta ,isn't it?

 

 

You can use Wordpress in stable/final release but if you want beta version, feel free to use it but you may have bugs in it..  Check the changelogs before you use the beta version.

hi

are all free?

thanks a lot

 

I'm afraid those ones were premium. Advantage to buying a theme is, you generally get some kind of support from the site where you bought it. Theme authors are very often happy to make little mods here and there or at least tell you how to edit the code, if you want to tweak the theme in a way that can't be done out of the box.

Here's a bunch of free ones, they're still good though.

For 44.95$, this software is junk and offers nothing more than you you can get from free editors.

Well, If you want that,  be my guest...  everyone is entitled to their preferences.

 

Wordpress is a blogging system which you can use the free or custom themes (free or paid) in no time.

Can't say much about WYSIWYG but, while such editors are much faster to get something up and running (not as fast as using a CMS like WordPress), to actually learn something I would strongly suggest starting with w3schools.com and Notepad++.

Nothing beats understanding the code behind your page.

Please don't recommend w3schools :(. I would recommend the Mozilla Developer Network.

 

About CMSs, I would recommend Joomla, or Wordpress. I think you went to the wordpress.com site, which is a blogging platform that is built on Wordpress.

Learning can be done from experimentation, but that takes some time. You can use something like Codecademy or Code School to jumpstart your learning.

Personally, I learned HTML, JS, and CSS from fooling around with Bootstrap (by Twitter). I really like Netbeans for HTML editing.

 

But you want a WYSIWYG HTML editor, I would recommend BlueGriffon, a fork of Kompozer. I recommend BlueGriffon over KompoZer because it has been updated later than KompoZer.

I just said to start there, not to draw all your knowledge from there. It sure is not the best source, but it sure is easy to read and understand the very basic concepts they showcase.

I have to agree that w3schools is just the most simple site at the moment for people to learn and understand html and css from, that it's content might be outdated and sometimes not correct is not exactly that important for beginners since they will write messy incorrect code anyway lol.

 

The most important for beginners in html and css is that they validate their code with the w3c validator as example so they see their mistakes and learn from them.

I have to agree with you there, since MDN is kind of advanced and scary for beginners. However, people should know how to code with compliance, but I guess W3Schools is a good place to start to understand the fundamental concepts of HTML.

WYSIWYG Web Builder is great for beginners. It actually has a lot of very useful plugins. I use it when I need to quickly build something, and rather than whip out NotePad++ or similar, I just use it.

 

Some things I don't like are the fact it likes to use positional properties - and can be a pain to try to make your site open in the center of your browser window... so you have to dip into the HTML. From memory, it doesn't actually have a HTML editor built in... so you can't dip between the two, so you have to have some understanding of HTML/CSS to get it tweaked.
