Content Management System, the most commonly used ones being Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress. With HTML editors, all content is written in HTML code, line by line and step by step. Free and proprietary HTML editors are available. With a Content Management System System (CMS) a lot of the coding work is organized into available modules which significantly decrease the amount of coding necessary, thus focussing on the look and feel of the website. The trade off is the need for learning the CMS higher level functions vs writing a long list of HTML commands. The Content Management Systems listed above are all free. + 0 Votes Xara Wb Designer nanakontihene March 11, 2013 at 2:57am PST Try Xara Web Designer. You do not need to HTML. + 0 Votes A couple I've been experimenting with wizard57m-cnet Moderator March 11, 2013 at 6:11am PST are Kompozer, multi-platform, free and open source, and Microsoft Expression Web, now free. Prior to playing with these I used either a plain text editor, TAG html editor or Webford...rather old-school. + 1 Votes Plone is highly secure open source CMS john.dorapalli March 11, 2013 at 1:35pm PST By saying "Designing a best website" what do you mean? If you are looking at the UI designing then I am a no expert. If you are looking at a real solid Content management system, then Plone is one you have give a serious consideration. There is some learning curve but it is worth it for all the tools you get with it for free. Very high emphasis on security. Drupal is for quick up and running. + 0 Votes Concrete 5 CMS robo_dev Updated - March 12, 2013 at 1:21am PST That's what I use. There are many open souce CMS platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and Bitnami-based platforms such as Concrete 5 and Plone. Personally, I am a huge Concrete 5 fan, and use it for several sites I manage. I run a dev/test site on my VMware infrastructure at home and host the sites using BitRock, which uses AWS. http://bitnami.org/stacks + 0 Votes Adobe Creative Suite aidemzo_adanac March 12, 2013 at 1:22am PST Adobe Creative Suite (Formerly the Macromedia Suite), offers a robust set of tools for web design, flash, graphic design, and a whole lot more that seamlessly works together. It allows for WYSIWYG design as well as code only or a hybrid of code and WYSIWYG. If you need to edit a graphic from the design view, the toolbar allows you to edit using other Creative Suite software and then when done editing it updated the page automatically etc. If you need to manage the design, layout, dynamics as well as code, Creative Suite pretty much does it all. + 0 Votes Also, take the time to learn some HTML if you don't already know how Slayer_ March 12, 2013 at 1:58am PST All those editors do a good job, but occasionally they just make a mess of things. And you can easily fix them by knowing a bit of HTML. When I am working on a page in Dreamweaver (I know it's old). I frequently switch to HTML to move things around. Move a cell in a table, apply css to a specific parent element like divs which don't easily show in the WYSIWYG editor. + 0 Votes You should go at Creative Mentor mclainpauline March 20, 2013 at 5:29pm PST I think you should go at http://www.creativementor.com.au because they provides the best services for learning web designing.
