Has anyone ever used this software? A friend purchased this program to make his first web site. He likes the simplicity of the program, I am going crazy trying to force it to let me add active links. Last night I resorted to opening htm pages in FrontPage and inserting the links. Maybe I am just missing something, but I think this software is an exercise in frustration. I cannot figure out how to look at or modify the HTML code on the webpages from within it, either. Does anyone here know?
TIA

I'm not a fan of WYSIWYG editors myself. I know just enough HTML that they cause me trouble. In fact most of the time I use templates and Notepad, a little old fashioned but I can pretty much imagine what the page will look like as I'm coding it.

I agree with Tyger, never liked those wysiwyg editors, notepad is good enough for me :tazz:

Right click on the page, and select view source (or view page source). In IE, notepad or the default html editor will open up. In firefox, the code is displayed in a new window, you cannot edit though.

I made a test site with this editor, uploaded it and it says "Directory Access Denied". Grrrr...

I used a template for the first 8 pages, and all the info is in one folder (I am used to having a separate folder for each page) so I really don't know where to begin to sort out this mess. I am not an HTML whiz, which doesn't help.

The man who bought this software is busy creating a marvelous site, and I do not want to upload his and find out that this thing doesn't work! The template does not have an "index" page, so I renamed the main page, and it still doesn't work. I'm off to find some aspirin.

Are you still having the problem with adding links or a problem with uploading or some other html problem? Maybe you can post the code or the html file that you're having trouble with.

Why don't you like wysiwyg editors?

And i don't know how you can use notepad.

And 1 more thing. If you don't like html, what do you use?

wysiwyg editors often messes up the page, and interfere if you actually know html. It's especially troublesome if you know bits of html, or if you're just starting out.

I never said I don't like html, I use html to code my pages all the time, it's probably the only language I know well enough to not have trouble using, heh. And for notepad, all you have to do is enter all the codes and save as a .html file. The great thing about it is that it's not only compatible with html, it's compatible with all web formats.
