Easy web editing software?

Hello, long long time no see guys, no one remembers who I am but I am here on a mission!

I've experimented with Google pages and made my own website with that, its basically my own personal website in which I host videos. I want to move onto something bigger so I can have my own domain instead of .googlepages.com.

I'm ready to buy the domain and set it all up but first, I need to get some easy web editing software! Google pages was really easy to use and I need something like that, but offers more customization. I was looking for something like Coda but unfortunately the software is mac only.

If anyone can help me I'd be very grateful. Oh, and I don't mind ones that I have to pay for but free ones would be very much preferred.

Thanks.

The host I'm going with includes frontpage, not heard of it but will look it up.

Would love to buy a mac, if you give me the money.

Dreamweaver is what we use at school and it's pretty easy to use.

If I remember rightly, that was a terrible piece of software, trying to make something good in that was like performing heart surgery with no prior experience.

I'll research on what else I can get with this company...

Soholaunch seems good, comes free with the website too. I'll have a quick look at it.

My advice, don't waste your money if it's just a personal site and you have no actual skill to make a web page in the first place.

For a basic webpage, I'd say either just use notepad or an open source web editor like winedit.

Dreamweaver is the easiest web page designer. I have tried front page and the rest and Dreamweaver clearly outstrips them. I would highly recommend it since it is made by Macromedia the creators of Flash.

But my advice is to learn HTML and create a website via notepad. But if you need a simple site with no flash or anything try Dreamweaver. If you wish to create a clan site or a really big site then I would recommend HTML. Since it is really hard to use but has bigger results and bigger presentation.

I of course use Dreamweaver MX 2004 and am glad I got it along with flash and fireworks.

Another thing you might try is download a pre-made template. Search for "free web templates" on Google. It does all the coding to get a flashy site, but lets you add the content.
That's what I did before I learned HTML.

Quanta, dunno if there's a Win32 port of it though.

A good program I used in the past was ACEhtml and it did the job quite nicely. I also tried out dreamweaver but that didn´t really satisfy me as it mostly didn´t do what I wanted. Nowadays it´s all notepad!

I don't really want anything really, really basic. Something with a bit of CSS or flash or something like that. I think I'll end up sticking with the website editor, I wanted to shove a few game reviews onto it so... Meh I'll find something somehow

Learn how to make webpages. Then use notepad. That's how I figured it out.

A good idea, but you can probably allow yourself the luxury of something like WinEdit that has syntax highlighting and the like. But yes, learning how it really works will be an advantage in the long run. There are tons of tutorials out there, and the link above is very useful.

If you want to go for it all by hand, check out GVim
