    From Frontpage to Dreamweaver?
    Has anyone made the transition? I am thinking about buying Dreamweaver and wanted to know how easy it is to learn when you are in the Frontpage mindset.

    I did it years ago. As painful as it might be for a while, you will be very glad you did it.

    Yeah I like Dreamweaver much much better... it also has a ton of new options for developers who don't like the standard WYSWYG look.

    I started with Frontpage.
    But it didn't last long. I wanted to look at the code and see what I had done and be able to learn from that. Frontpage was full of excess code that made learning harder. I finally switched to Dreamweaver and I'm glad I did. If you've been using Frontpage for a while, the switch probably won't be as hard as you think. I made the switch before I really had the hang of Frontpage, html or anything to do with building a website, so it was like starting over for me.

    Dreamweaver's popularity is a strong point - there are lots of websites and books to choose from to get you going quickly.

    I believe you'll be glad you did.

    I made the switch more than a year ago. There is a real learning curve (still learning new stuff) but Dreamweaver is sweet! You will love it. Go for it!

    Good Luck!

    Dreamweaver changed my life. It may sound a bit dramatic, but it did - with it my output of websites increased dramatically, and the results were extremely professional. I bought a 'for dummies' book on it, and found it very easy.

    I started out with Front Page and changed to Dreamweaver 4 years ago. Iíll never go back. I bought Macromedia Studio this year and have been learning to us Firworks, FlashPro and FreeHand. Itís great and I highly recommend it.

    Thanks everyone. It sounds like it is a good move to make. I downloaded the trial version and need to spend more time playing with it. It's a bit overwhelming but I love the possibilities...

    The price tag however - I don't love! So I want to be sure.

    Yep Dreamweaver is a great program been using 3 years now
    Started 6 years ago handcoding pages and using FTP software.
    Then came a brief trial with Frontpage which was better than handcoding, but messy.
    Then came Dreamweaver 4 then DreamWeaver MX. Never will I go back.
    Wonder what Adobe will do with it once they have fully aquired Macromedia
    Helpful site to use www.DWfaq.com Quick lookup of DW specific question, exstention, tutorials.
    Good luck with the transition. Your programing Life will change forever.

    Same here, started with FrontPage in the Mid 90's and when I switched I never went back. FrontPage is so limiting and creates sooooo many silly files.
