post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hi,
im looking to design a simple website for now but eventually it will need to incorperate some sort of creditcard/paypal payment system. the design will be simple and clean and just for simple viewing for now! i have loads and loads of time and i was wondering what the best programmes would be for me to use

im on ubuntu by the way, but i do have an old pc with xp if the software requires i use xp. but would prefer ubuntu.

so the best software and best books/online guides to read?

Cheers lads!

For free and linux, I recommend NVU. Very good and pretty easy to learn.

But as for XP, Frontpage (even though I hate M$) I have to say is very easy to learn and great for beginners.

You could give HTML Kit a go.

Notepad is all you need.

No need to spend any money for an editor. Microsoft makes a great tool for free called Visual Web Developer Express ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/ ) which is a scaled down Visual Studio (absolutely everything you will need for a site). It is great for html and especially and .net programming you might be in to. There is great drag and drop utilities as well as intellitype and some other great features in VWDE. The best WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor IMO.


VWDE is a professional level WYSIWYG editor for free - MS offers it for free because it is only a small part os Visual Studio, which is quite pricey.

Yahoo SiteBuilder. It is cut and paste, with all of the HTML functions and webpage add-ins. It has great templates and even publishes the site for you when your done.

Yeah, I heard about that. It sounds really cool, but I haven't tried it yet.

I've got NVu for Win, and its a fairly decent program. (Though I do most of my coding in Notepad.)

Its a pretty handy little program considering it's free.
