Web authoring software
« on: December 05, 2008, 05:45:34 PM »
A while back I set up a web site for the wife and her hobby using a free online software "Nvu" I thought it worked ok although we did have a few issues with it, but for what it cost it works well.
Well I recently offered to redo the local clubs web site so I went looking for more free stuff to use, I found webdwarf by virtual mechanics, I loaded it up and it also works pretty well although in order to get some of the functions I will need I would have to pay for the $50 version. My question is does anyone use software that they feel so good about that they would reccomend it here ?

Here is the wifes site built with Nvu,

If you're familiar with NVU, you should try Kompozer.  NVU is no longer in development, the source code was used to create Kompozer.  It's in development, there's only one guy working on it, so it's slow on updates, but it seems to be a solid platform, for the most part, especially if your needs aren't too complex - or your skills aren't (as mine aren't!).
