    Talking Site Builder For PHP and ASP Sites?
    Helllloooooo!

    Before someone says that this is a dumb question - I admit that I don't know the answer to it.

    Now on to the question.

    I have been building sites with FrontPage. Is their a site builder program where you can build PHP and ASP sites in the same way you build sites with static pages in FrontPage?

    If there is - what program, or programs, would you recommend and where do you find it or them.

    Thanking you in advance for your help.

    Anyone want to have a Burger eating contest?

    I used to use Dreamweaver for that sort of thing, but that was a number of years back. I presume it still has good tools for that, but I haven't tried to use them. :-)

    I use Dreamweaver MX most of the time for building pages and I've done a tad of php, asp, html all with it..

    I was also turned on to Namo fram SandraR here.. Both programs have pro-s and cons including price.. Namo is around $80 and MX is around $350..

    Visual Studio is good for ASP. I've been using it since 1.0. The latest version is for ASP.NET. I totally depend on it. There is a free IDE called Webmatrix. It is very good too.

    I also tried DreamweaverMX, but went back to Visual Studio. Just personal preference.

    I guess I should throw my hat into the Dreamweaver ring also. I mainly use it for html generation though... All of my jsp and javascript is done through Textpad.

    I use Dreamweaver MX to help me create ASP pages.
    its a snap once you learn the basics of creating datasources.

    ASP Maker
    I use ASP Maker to build my database interfaces. Very easy to use and the code it generates is very clean- easy to customize. It depends on what you're wanting to do.

    They also offer a similar product for PHP and XML.

    Another option I have used is called Code Charge Studio. It's more powerful but also much more expensive.

    Is Dreamweaver MX easy to use for a complete novice like me? I still use Dreamweaver 4 to create HTML pages, and I would love to learn how to use a database.

    You could try webplus6 as it is completely free.

    This site is quite amazing considering the quality of their software and
    the cost of $0.00

    I migrated from DW 4.0 to Ultra Dev then to MX. If you can use DW 4.0 you can use MX.... you just need to buy a good Mx book to walk you through some datasource tutorials. Once you done one or two, its a snap.

    Dreamweaver is a great program....but don't get the idea that it will be able to create nice PHP sites for you just as easily as Frontpage will with HTML. There is no program that will do all the work for you, in the long run you will still need to actually learn PHP and at least MySQL. Throw me in with the notepad crowd.

    Dittos to what NoFee said.

    I've just started learning PHP too, and found that learning DWMX's way of doing it to be at least as hard as just learning it the "old fashioned" way. It was like trying to learn two new things instead of one...

    DW may be a help *after* I'm more familiar with PHP/MySQL, and I really know what I'm looking at, but until then trying to debug what DW put out was like trying to untangle 10,000 miles of Christmas lights. I got a lot further just typing the code in myself.

    If you like working with PHP, Dreamweaver is probably the best WYSIWYG tool for making layouts that hook up to databases.

    But if you like the benefits of static pages and are already comfortable with FrontPage you might consider WebMerge as a quick solution to get your feeds processed and posted quickly.

    Feel free to drop into the WebMerge forum here with any questions you might have about it:
