    What Website Design software do you use?
    This affiliate marketing stuff is still fairly new to me. I'm currently running a gadget and gizmo site by using iweb then processing it with iweb buddy. Ultimately I have it hosted by iweb/mobileme and cloaked to my domain. i know this is completely the wrong way to do this. It was just a testing/learning ground. Anyway, I'm finally looking to move to the correct way of doing this and create a site and have it hosted and linked directly to my domain. I'm curious of what software titles folks use for Macs?

    I downloaded NVU and the trial versions of Sandvox and Rapidweaver. What would you guys recommend. Keep in mind, I'd like to keep it simple but flexible. The NVU seems promising especially since it's free. Any input would be great!

    Thanks much,
    Robert

    Robert,

    I strongly recommend Rapidweaver. I've used it for a couple of years and built several sites with it*.

    I had 3.6 for use with Tiger (10.4) until last month when I upgraded to Snow Leopard (10.6) and RW 4.3 and there are some serious improvements.

    My one problem had been with what WAS just terrible support, but they have fixed that. I tried to update 3.6 sites on my new 10.6 OS and ran into big problems, and while it used to take days to get a response from RW support, now I received help in minutes.

    The full version is well worth the very reasonable price, and if you do a search, you can find a coupon.

    Note, the 3.6 > 4.3 update, two years after my original purchase, was FREE.
    ____
    *One of which is my sports blog linked below, if you want to take a look (that is the only blog I've done with RW.)

    I use Dreamweaver CS3 and have been using Dreamweaver since way back when. It's always been able to do what I want so haven't really looked at anything else.

    Expression Web 3. I really like it. It used to be FrontPage but they changed the name and added many new features.

    XSitePro is worth a look. I've used it on a couple of sites and am pleased with the results.
    It doesn't have a steep learning curve to get started and has a lot of functionality, once you get into it.

    Might have to take Andy up on that XSitePro trial but I have been a DreamWeaver user for ever and ever. Also am enjoying wordpress based sites that I can access from anywhere, are totally webbased and occasionally I"ll pop into Dreamweaver to tweak things here and there for those sites. Wordpress is great for accessing on cellphones too where my Dreamweaver must have it's only more robust computer. (it runs way slow on my little netbook if i try to multitask).

    I'm a Mac user, and I've been using Dreamweaver since version 4, many years ago. I find though, that I'm using it less and less as I convert my sites to Wordpress - it's not just for blogging. Have you considered using Wordpress, Drupal, or another CMS? With installed software, you have little to worry about beyond theme customization and affiliate-related plugins, of which there are many.

    So, my vote goes to Dreamweaver and/or Wordpress

    Burgerboy, did you have to make changes to the existing websites? I use Frontpage 2003 extensively. Some sites have Frontpage specific functions like navigation and some don't. Did you find it a big deal to migrate to Expression Web 3?

    I had no problems changing over to EW 3 but my sites use a lot of php and with EW 3 the php includes are put on the pages in EW 3 and you can see what you have before you publish your site where FP 03 doesn't show php includes while you're working on your sites.

    Sounds like a great deal. I wouldn't mind trying that out for myself.

    Same here, I have been using Dreamweaver for 8 years now. Never used anything else.

    I suppose you could say that I know nothing about anything else though. Even so, I like Dreamweaver, and it has worked for me over the years.

    I finally decided to go with a content management system rather than design my own website. I struggled for quite a while, off and on, to build a website, but never really got anywhere with it. I can handle code just fine, but I'm more the technical type than the visual design type and could never get things to look exactly like I wanted. Finally, I just got Joomla and a good book to learn how to use it. After I had the basics figured out, I found a template that was acceptable and installed that. While I've been configuring Joomla, my wife has been adding articles. I still have some configuration to do and at least one extension I want to add (a blog comment extension), but at least we have a live site now (actually, two live sites, my wife set up another one), and I'm happy with Joomla at this point.

    Still using M$ FrontPage 2000
    I am still using M$ FrontPage 2000, which is very long in the tooth, but easy to use. The HTML isn't good, but I need something easy for me to use, and, especially, very easy for my wife to use.

    This morning, I was trying to get 4 Search Boxes for a LinkShare Merchant installed, but they did not work properly. Not sure if that's a problem with their Search Boxes or M$ FrontPage 2000. :-)

    I sent Andy 2.0 a PM and if he sends me a license for XSitePro I am going to check it out.
