I would like to build a site on WordPress (not simply just a blog) but need an editing program to do it. I was told Dreamweaver wouldn’t work or isn’t suggested. I am not a web designer. Looking for something user-friendly and simple. What program should I use?
WordPress does everything for you, and you really can’t get any easier.. All you need to do after installation is to write your posts or pages, right within the WordPress admin. And find a theme you like if you cannot design it yourself.
If you want to attempt to design your own theme, about the only thing you can use is Notepad or a text editor. Other html programs can be used but you need to know what you’re doing, so you write clean code. HTML programs are not known for this.
You do need to know HTML in order to create pages, whether you use a program or not.
