What program should I use to create a site with WordPress?

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.

  2. There are many great WordPress themes that work really well for a blog that you would like to work as a website. Some of the best I have found are from SPress. They have great user support and its very reasonable ($60) compared to many others out there. I have a link to their site on mine if you are interested.

    You can use free Templates as well but I have found these to have many great options for producing a blog that more mimics a website. Im in the process of upgrading my blog with it as we speak.

    Hope you check them out.

  3. if you want something different than wordpress you should get a real web site editor program: I use easywebeditor and it is very good: I have both a website and a blog (I placed a wordpress blog within a subfolder of the website)
