View Full Version : Website building assistance

Hi all, I am rebulding and shifting the hosting of a non profit group. And I need some assistance please - in plain language.

We are moving to HostGator - and I have been using one of their templates however after many hours of trying to change the banner and background I find that is unable to be done.

We are also needing to be able to allow users to upload files to the site - but I cannot find anything to allow that either.

I am now looking for a free wysiwig program that will allow me to build what we want - any suggestions for any of my probems please?

I guess you don't want to pay someone to help you? (If you do, send me a PM :))

If you’re looking for a free wysiwig program, have a look at these sites:



I haven't used any free wysiwig programs before, so I can’t recommend any to you, sorry! (Also if you have Microsoft Office, then have a look and see if you got Front Page, as it could do what you want!)

Hope this is of some help :)

Er....My company have various apps listed on their site, can't vouch for nay at this point, but some are designed to specifically allow others to add bi8ts, and not exactly templates, more a sort of do-it-all in one type thing.

There's this thing, used a fair bit:

Then there's a list - http://www.openhost.co.nz/webhosting/applicationvault.php
Mostly says what uses they have for different things.

These are not part of the company - so if you find one that looks possible - then go to the apps site and see what it involves, free or not and perhaps google some user reviews too.

Try Seamonkey. It has, apart from a browser and email client, a useful wysiwyg website tool. It's a free download.

Dont know if http://www.websitex5.com/en/free.html will be of any use to you. Have a look through the Guided Tour / Video Tutorial, shows you how to use it.

Mug-gins here --- Thats what I'm working on :sleep, but its the paid version ( Its work-in progress) -- only for the last 3 years :eek: when I get around to it. Its on one of my servers, but not live yet, but can be accessed if needed.
