  • Dreamweaver anyone?

    Does anyone know how I can buy dreamweaver for less than the £300 odd quid it's on amazon for? I bought hosting with 123 and my sis built my website on dreamweaver but I need to be able to maintain it rather than her but I can't afford £300!!! Aaaaghh!

      How many licences does your sister have, several of the website pro design packages have more than one licence.

          you could just hold a working copy on you pc and change the html files seperately. As long as you only do it on a secondary "working" copy you can also revert. I think if you download the Firefox web browser you can get a developer toolbar which allows you to see the changes as you work on them (on the offline copy)

          To be honest thats why I went to the content management system Joomla, cos once it's set up, it's much easier to maintain.

            I love DW use it all day every day and is worth every penny..

            But you can use 1000's of different editors..

            Don't forget it will go against your tax if you buy it so see it as an investment.

              Hmmm - thanks everyone! Food for thought!

              Do you think I should bite the bullet then and go for one of those options rather than just giving up with it and going for Mr Site or something???

                Depends how confident you are with HTML and what your website consists off.

                If it is just a shop I woud go for something like Cube Cart which is "fairly" simple to setup and then very simple to add, suspend or delete products... OScommerce is more difficult to setup but is a great shop.

                If you want more than just a shop I'd take the recommendation above and go for Joomla. Fairly simple Content management system but it has endless add ons, (some commercial some free) gallery, shop, forum etc etc

                I use CoffeCup HTML editor which I have use for a long time and has some really nifty features but as someone pointed out there are 100s of HTML editors out there and it really is a case of choosing one and getting used to it.

                Having said that I have just open an account with 1and1 and the one I chose comes with a free copy of Dreamweaver... will be interested to see what its like as I have friends who rave about it however I have been warned not to use it for PHP coding as apparently it has a habit of putting extra characters in!!!! Not sure if this is true.

                  One and One internet were doing a package with Dreamweaver thrown in FREE (you paid for postage to get the install disk). They do the offer every now and again (worth looking out for)

                    The offer versions cheap tend to only be for personal use and not licensed for commercial use.

                    If you want to try them, you could dowload trial versions of coffee cup, dreamweaver and expressions web 2. I eventually went with expressions web as it was easier to learn and it can be upgraded from any version of office etc so even the cheapest microsoft package can get you the cheaper license and keep you legal.

                      I use Dreamweaver, but bought the full CS3 Webstandard version. I make other websites too and it's part of OH's work so he could purchase it at the ex VAT price.

                      Worth the money though in my view.

                        I've got Dreamweaver. I also love it. (But I have uttered the odd naughty word when it gets upgraded and things don't do what I expect - but the changes are not as incomprehensible as other programs make.) I'm very visual and like the cut and paste, what you see is what you get, way it works (most of the time). I got my money back by offering to 'knock up' websites for other 'little people' - computery scarey friends. I'm asked to maintain most of these, so there's an extra bit of money dribbling in all the time. Watch out for little people growing into big people, though. I'm muttering under my breath at the number of new pictures I've just been asked to upload for someone, but as my kids used to say "Remember the money, mummy."
                        It's worked for me and it's a doddle to change things.

                          If you enrol on a college course and become a student you can get a student licence for less than £100.
