Default What do you use to create your website?
I am trying to find out what is more prominent, today, to create a website. So, if you will please answer this one question.... html (sitebuilder), wordpress (blog type thing) or other.

Thanks!

I was going to vote, but honestly I use all three! I use Wordpress (hosted on my server), HTML, and Dreamweaver.

I actually like all three and don't have a preference because I use all in conjunction with each other. I am probably not providing you the insight you are looking for though, huh?

Hmm, wondering if I misunderstood. lol I voted "other" b/c I (now) use an HTML program (like Dreamweaver), but it's not a "sitebuilder". To me a sitebuilder is like a template-driven system offered by a webhost, which I have used in the past - so that's how I was thinking about it.

I guess I have also used WordPress too, but not much - yet. Anyhow... there ya have it. Clear as mud. lol

I am at the moment using a sitebuilder, but I am also working on another site with HTML. So I can have more than 1 site hoping for more hits, plus to see which one works better.

I use Drupal as i eventually want clients to be able to log in and update their details, check their account or upload work to be completed, so i really need a good CMS and not just an info site

I use a sitebuilder, but partly due to the fact I don't have a lot of time to work with the other programs.

However, for my second business the sitebuilder doesn't really have great templates for me to use - so for that I either need to learn html or Dreamweaver ... or pay someone to build it for me.

Bottom line: Sitebuilders are great providing they offer the right templates for you or provide you with the ability to change the template to fit your needs.

I like the html sitebuilder programs like Free Webs because i do not have to remeber of the html codes. I can you the little bit that I know and still complete the web site. That is way I am not offering webpage design right now.

I use Dreamweaver CS3, but in code view , not design view (too distracting for me ) for HTML, and CSS external style sheets. And, my brand new VA site is being constructed using WordPress. Someone else mentioned Joomla, and I have designed a site using that, and it is a pretty cool way to go also.

Currently, I do not have a website, (not yet.. ) But, I've used in the past HTML, a sitebuilder, WordPress as a CMS and Frontpage. I'd love to learn Dreamweaver!

I've been playing around building websites for more years than I care to count. I've used html, sitebuilders and Frontpage in the past but I'm a huge fan of Wordpress. I love the ease that you can update your site, the addition of widgets to your sidebar(s) and the ability to install extremely powerful themes that give you dashboard control of so much more without coding. My business website/blog is built on it as well as my personal blog, book review site and writing blog.

Although I use HTML for my site, I use WordPress for a client. I'm finding it a littlemore cumbersome to use.

I have my blog set up on Wordpress and I used MS Publisher to create my static website.

Once learn html, which I plan to start studying soon, I will switch to that.

Back in the day (LOL!!!) I used HTML with good old fashion notepad, then along came Frontpage, then along came Dreamweaver when I have to write a page with code like PHP or Coldfusion. I have used Word Press and CMS apps.

Just when we get a handle on the latest software....they switch it up on us! LOL!!
