Site Builder


Recommended Posts

Was I dreaming or did I see mention of a site builder being added to all the other cool goodies we have with TCH?

 

I'd really like to redo my site but just can't bring myself to wrestle with FrontPage again. If it was only a dream about the site builder, can someone recommend one? Free would be good! LOL

Microsoft is apparently done wrestling with FrontPage as well. They've replaced it with a new product, Expression Web, which is quite nice.

 

But, the free site builder that is coming our way may be all you need!

Wait... did you say Microsoft replaced Frontpage...and the program is quite nice?! I must check this out!

I think they went with the name change for two reasons. 1. FrontPage had a negative rep. 2. It fits nicely with the Expression Studio which they probably hope to run against the Adobe/Dreamweaver suite. From the beta trial of Expression Web I saw, it's the latest FP (which was headed in that direction with better CSS support, etc) with a facelift and a very few new features aimed at the whole suite model.

 

They are offering upgrade from FP for $99 which is pretty good and the Suite for $349.

 

Obligatory on-topic post: There are many WYSIWYG site-builder type setups out there. Make sure what you end up with can be uploaded to any server though. Long ago I got ahold of one but it only worked if uploaded to their server.
