Thread: Dreamweaver or....?

  1. #1

    Default Dreamweaver or....?

    I'm considering putting the latest Dreamweaver on my wishlist. Would you go with Dreamweaver or some other WYSIWYG editor?

    (Yes, I use self-hosted WordPress for many of my sites, but I still have some HTML sites that I'm not sure I'll convert.)

    Linda, I am a definite newbie so don't really listen to me, but I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.

    I have owned two html editors. I started with coffeecup. I was good, but it does not have the features that Dreamweaver does, which is my second. The cost for coffeecup is considerably less, and I guess you can do just about anything with it although not quite as easily as the much more expensive DW.

    I am sure others have much more experience and can tell you better than I!

    Thanks.. Adding... I already use Dreamweaver, but I have a very old version and am considering updating. Just checking to see if there's anything else new and perhaps better?

    I tried downloading a couple of free editors including KomPozer, but didn't really like it. Just looked at Artisteer and it doesn't seem to fit my needs either.

    If you are serious about web design then Dreamweaver is the best program out there. I used to be a web designer, and that's what i used to use. It's very powerful.

    The only thing is that it may take you a while to learn the ins and outs, but it's worth it!

    DW is definitely a great editor but I love using PHPDesigner. It's no WYSIWYG but I love the feature when they highlight matching HTML tags. I'm not sure why DW doesn't have that.

    I actually liked my older version of Dreamweaver better. I'd look at what features you want, and decide which version to use based on that. Don't just upgrade for the sake of it (I wish I hadn't lol). I still use the old version on my laptop and prefer it.

    I'm another Dreamweaver using, been using it since v.3 eons ago. But then I've been a web designer for more than 10 years... so it was a very useful tool for my business. I still use it almost daily for something. I currently am using v.8.

    Another vote for Dreamweaver here. But, do you need to upgrade? Is it giving you issues?

    If you do, here's a big hint. If you or someone in your immediate family is in college, order through this site:

    You can get HUGE discounts on software. We stocked up when hubby was taking classes.

    Hope it helps!

    I'm also a Dreamweaver user and absolutely love it. I use to use FrontPage ages ago but decided to go with DW from some of its features a while back. It's been so long, I can't remember why exactly I decided to make the move - but I'm glad I did.

    Thanks for sharing that link Nicole, I've been thinking about upgrading some of my Adobe software and since I'm enrolled in an online credited school for graphics, the link couldn't have come at a better time.
