Website Graphics Tools Question

Ken asks…

What is the best free program to use to design a website?

I want to design a website and also want to include advertising on the site to help generate an income from it to help provide cash for my overseas visits.

scottparat answers:

It depends what you want to do and how technical you want to get.

You need to think about the design of your website and that is done either using a graphics program or just plain old fashioned pen and paper. Take a look around some sites – you’ll find a simple design usually looks more professional.

As to creating and editing your site…

There are things called content management systems, which includes WordPress, Mambo, Joomla! – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_content_management_system – which lets non-technical users put together a site very quickly. These programs also depend on having PHP and MySQL installed on the server they run from which may be a problem.

If you’re more interested in learning the underlying HTML, CSS, XML or whatever, then a WYSIWYG editor is a good place to start, FrontPage Express was given away with some versions of Windows and although old may be still useful. – http://www.google.com/search?q=download+frontpage+express

NVU is free http://www.download.com/Nvu/3000-10247_4-10412423.html but is now superceeded by KompoZer – http://kompozer.net/ which produces W3C compliant code.

Ther is also http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/ which I like.

These WYSIWYG editors are good in that the split view (the screen shows both the code and the design) shows instantly what changes to the code does to the design.

There’s an ongoing and largely boring debate (as in my browser is better than yours and Linux vs Windows) among developers as to whether you should use WYSIWYG tools or just use a text editor to prodcue the page codes. Once you know a little CSS, JavaScript, HTML then using a text editor can be quicker, but if you’re a beginner you may find it extremely frustrating.

As for the advertising, Googles AdSense seems easiest to use – https://www.google.com/adsense/login/en_US/
