Do you have any hosting sorted out? and what exactly do you want to do! :)
banned#2
yep hosting sorted, want to make a good looking website (obviously) for a party shop that wants to sell online, I don't mind not using templates, just want to find a way to make it better and see what software was available.

Depends what you want to do, I use Dreamweaver, its good, quite advanced. Though its a rip off to purchase, yes im tight. You can get free website development software from searching the tinternet which is equally as good, just lacks one or two features which Dreamweaver has such as Internal FTP.

There's many sites out there that offer templates, free or paid for, might be the better option paying £10 for a template than £50 for a designer. The advantage of paying a designer though is you'll be getting a unique template :)

Just make sure if you do go for a designer, you go for someone who knows what they are doing, my boyfriends boss recently paid someone £300 for a piece of crap looking site they knocked up in dreamweaver and didn't even work in firefox and had a 0% SEO score lol

whats seo?
#12
Search Engine Optimisation, it's basically how search engine friendly the site is..obviously with a score of 0, it's not going to do very well in the rankings etc

Seriouslly!
GOSH!
Why did he pay him if it did work?
#15
Well it worked but it didn't look the same/right in FF, I don't think he noticed cos he only users IE. Plus he doesn't know anything about site design, so didn't check it's SEO score or validity etc

I use notepad2 in Windows or Bluefish in Linux. I just use lightweight editors for the syntax highlighting really, non of this Dreamweaver hand holding nonsense :thumbsup: :giggle:

If you do want some templates checkout: http://www.oswd.org/ it's also worth looking at: http://www.zen-cart.com/ or similar for your shop.

SEO's a bit of a black art, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just make sure your code is in good order with appropriate meta tags, titles, headings etc., then as far as most people are concerned it is a case of the more sites that link to a page the higher its search engine ranking will be. Also it's important that your site should work on multiple browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.) and it should ideally validate to web standards (note Dreamweaver makes a pigs ear of this).

Hope that helps

Use notepad !!!

:P
#18
I second what megalomaniac said... notepad 2 is great, also notepad ++ isnt bad either.

Dreamweaver is a nice tool (not that i would use it) but it costs a lot and to be honest as megalomaniac said it makes a real mess of the code. If your serious about learning / creating websites then notepad is your friend :thumbsup:

There are plenty of free tutorial's / code snippets you can use.

If someone doesn't know html notepad is useless.

True, but to be fair if someone doesn't know HTML etc. or isn't willing to learn they really shouldn't be thinking of trying to build a website on anything like the sort of scale mentioned above, there is only so much the likes of Dreamweaver will let you get away with.

If you're after free software to produce a website take a look at this previous posting for a free copy of NetObjects.
