Web page creator prog
« on: June 04, 2018, 05:56:46 AM »
Any suggestions for a free program to create and edit a HTML page?
Nothing fancy just text and some diagrams/graphics.
Want to make a HTML based help page.

Regards,
CFJ

I did use Dreamweaver when producing professional websites but now use CoffeCup's HTML editor - they do a free verions but with some limited functionality - it does the job and unlike Dreamweaver is not too bloated.

Weebly seems ok. Used by NGS Berkshire Area Group.  :beers:

If you happen to use Microsoft Office, you can save documents in HTML format.

I use rapid Weaver and Stacks on my iMac.  Easy to use, fantastic user community and stable as anything.

You could always bust out the notepad++ and code it yourself  :D

Too lazy these days.
Been 15 years since I last did that.  Can hardly recall the syntax these days.
Last prog I used was Mosaic for some quick editing before I lost interest in my personal web site.

Yep that's all you need for static HTML.  The syntax is very simple.

I played with Dreamweaver 15 years ago, it generated such over bloated HTML I scrapped it and just hand-coded.

I'd offer to set something up for you but you'd still need to manually edit it later ;) There are a few online things nowadays like Wix that might do what you want if you don't have anything set up yet, and as long as you are happy with their advertising on it.

Get Serif Webplus.  Really easy to use.  I was always against using programs and hand typed all of my own code, but lack of use in recent years means that I'd forgotten bits and pieces.  Webplus is great and saves sooooo much time playing around with tables!  ::) ;D

Yeah, you probably don't wanna use tables for layout, it's not good for accessibility or mobile users..
