yea, i use a text editor (editpad) too. it's just a lot easier to amend your errors when you know where everything is and how it's working.

Frontpage can lick my musky yams. it's like the "special olympics" category for web design/development.

I have never used Frontpage, maybe because i couldn't be bothered trying to figure it out and in the end dreamweaver is way better. I must admit that I did use MS Word when I started web design, but I was 12 and had no net at the time!!! :(

I really don't like dreamweaver, it screws tables up  :blink:

View Post


interesting comment with how everything compliant is steering away from tables anyway! the only time i used frontpage for a project was when my boss required it, and then i spent more time going through and cleaning up code than i did actually designing the site... frontpage puts WAY too much extra nonsense coding in there for my taste!

VI is awesome!!! lol

I used it for a very brief period, I can't remember why... Maybe because I didn't pay for it. Then I discovered Dreamweaver MX, does everything I need. In what way do you find it screws tables up? I don't have any problems...

Like someone else said, if theres loads of HTML to be written, I use the WYSIWYG feature of DW, then tweak all of the code. Quicker and easier.

Back in my Windoze days, I used Frontpage Express for a little bit, and got really annoyed that it mucked up my code. Nowadays I use a Linux tool called Quanta. It's pretty good and dosen't insert random bits of code without asking you.

i voted no because i either use:

notepad for my html projects
and php design 2005 for my php codings.

besides i would rather use dreamweaver than frontpage if i was into WYSIWYG editors.

Why in the world would you want to use FrontPage? You get way more control over your site if you hand-code, and if something breaks, you don't have to deal with all of the goofy things FP uses... also, if you make a site in FP, everybody who looks at it knows right away that it was made in FP... it just looks so canned. WYSIWYG is the worst way to go, in my humble opinion...

Maybe frontpage is alright if you aren't too experienced with HTML coding.

I've added a contract line that my clients can NOT install frontpage extensions on their site after I build it or I will not make any future updates, corrections, or fixes.

When I have to WYSIWYG, I use Dreamweaver.

I love these threads that last forever... lol

:!!!: Ive just passed my web design exam to im going to buy myself some professional website design software, i think its called frontpage, have any of you heard of it? apparently its the best software out there for making websites, all of the other programs add extra lines of code and what people call 'bloat', but not frontpage, oh no, its a lean clean web designing machine.


ahahahahahah, sorry.

Ok, FP 2000 really was quite crap, but the new version, 2003 is good.
I used it to start making NeewaH.com v3.
I don't see why almost everyone hates frontpage anyway.
Is it the actual program, or is it because Microsoft made the program????

Yes, this is indeed one example where anti-MS zealotry doesn't fuel the overwhelming negative response to the product. Me, I'm anti-WYSIWYG entirely. The code they produce is outright despicable.

You don't need a special program to copy and paste.
