Website Software
show user profile  puttyface
Hi,

What's the easiest and most straight forward software to use for making websites?

I'm thinking of setting one up; something simple and attractive to display my work.

I had a play around with Dreamweaver a couple of years ago and it was more difficult than I expected.

Maybe I need to give it another bash + maybe it has improved/become easier esp since Adobe took it over?

P

Crimson Editor is nice, auto recognizes code and has built in auto-complete functions for HTML, CSS, and PHP, others as well but Ive not tried them.

im the same as you, had a go at making a website at uni and found it so much more difficult that i thought... i used this joomla to put mine up, although i did get alot of help from a friend because building websites really isnt my bag, i just wanted to display my work.

Ok thanks, I'll check those suggestions out later.

By the way should I assume that i'm going to have to use/learn code for this?

what's difficult about dreamweaver ?? ...You can't give it mental commands maybe ?

maybe before you start screwing around you might want to learn a thing or two about how websites work, what technologies are involved, what happens when you surf to a page using a webbrowser from the point where you type in the URI to the point where fancy graphics (could be porn) are downloaded onto your personal machine. Do not just jump in the trail and error way, it leads nowhere.

YES you need to learn code (HTML for starters)

No coding is required to build Infinity format 3D websites.

Just a knowledge of how to use 3DS Max.

This software is still in beta and has not been approved by the W3C or any other standards body.

It is still experimental technology.

For regular HTML sites, you need to learn how to code HTML & CSS.

Hey...
Just started using flash, really, really happy with it!
It's not as easy as powerpoint that's for sure but there is a lot of web tuturials, pdf and videos, in a couple of weeks should be possible to get somewhere.
Besides it's actually a pretty fun sofware to work with and to display graphic work i'd say that's the way to go.

to infinity, and beyond!

if your just displaying your artwork you could use blogspot, or other types of websites that you just pick a template and upload your images to. Alot of 3d artist from cgtalk use that i noticed, and they set up webrings by linking each others art, pretty good idea, almost like a facebook for artists.
