I have this business idea of mine and in order to realize it i would need to make a fairly professional looking homepage to promote my business. Now, as the complete newbie in this field that i am i would be in dire need of advice about which software to use to make my homepage. I do have MS frontpage on my computer right now but i am under the impression that there are better ones out there that will allow me to do nicer pages alot easier than MS frontpage does. It just seems too basic.

I am not making any extremely advanced site with Java or PHP etc, just a basic but esthetic site that can promote my products in a good way.

I am thankful for any advice.

The best professional combination, IMHO, is Macromedia Dreamweaver MX + Adobe Photoshop.
An alternative, free combination may be Quanta (maybe Linux only) for pages editing + GNU Gimp for image manipulation.

MS frontpage is crappy, basic and generates non-standard low-quality html pages. Internet forums are full of negative reviews of frontpage. Please uninstall it  Wink

For an easy start, check out the open-source, editable designs at http://www.oswd.org. You can get up and running really quickly with a template and Notepad.

I use Netobjects Fusion for my site. It may not be the best but I find it quite suitable for my site. $195

There is no such thing like the "best" webeditor. But first and foremost: the look of a website does not depend on the software. Either you are skilled or not. If you are, a simple text editor such as Notepad is enough as long as you have plenty of time to write all the code by hand.

Appearently, you are very unexperienced hence it would be better to ask a professional to do the work for you and to add a CMS with wich you can update your website by yourself.

LHMark,

that open source code site was really good for starters, i downloaded some nice templates from there already. I havent played around too much with them yet but i think i'll get Dreamweaver to be able to edit them to my preferences in the best way.


Thanks for all the input you guys.
