Need Advise on Web Program

by gevans9726 / January 20, 2013 11:46 AM PST

I set my website up a couple of years ago when I had the Adobe CS2 on my old Mac. At that time, it included a program called GoLive, which was obsolete even when I used it to set up my site, but I managed to get it done and it works well, although now needs updating.

My Mac crashed, and I have subsequently transferred all my graphics programs to a PC (CS6) but didn't buy the Web version that included Dreamweaver because I was told it was complicated, and I didn't feel I needed anything complex. Now I need to update my website, and don't have a program to do it. Should I bite the bullet and buy Dreamweaver, or is there a free/cheaper/easier to use alternative out there?

Thanks for any advise you can offer.

Notepad stands for professional

Yes, notepad is free but it may need very professional skills to handle it. Frankly speaking, nowadays, programmers are not as good as before, most of the old programmers can handle the html codes with Notepad expertly but now I doubt that.

In my personal opinions, Dreamweaver is still the best HTML/website editor although there are some webpage making software which seem to be easier to handle. My suggestion is that since you want to keep your website move on, why not bite the bullet?
