View Full Version : MS Frontpage Alternatives
08-12-2006, 11:41 AM
I did a clean install a couple of months ago and am trying to avoid reinstalling any MS Office products. Problem is, I now have a need for MS Frontpage and while I have it, I'd rather not install it.
Is anyone familiar with any alternatives (cheaper is better) out there? Thanks

Try NVU; it's freeware.
Dreamweaver is also good but not free.

ive used it before, and frontpage employs proprietary ways of uploading to your host server. to my knowledge theres no other program that works the same way as frontpage.
that being said, ive gone on to use dreamweaver. produces "clean" html, and powerful enough for what i need to do (it can also do PHP). i did some inspection on the lines of codes produced, and Frontpage somehow adds extra lines of crap on a simple one page site (compared to the same one page site that looks identical made on DW). so kudos for trying NOT to use frontpage.
or do it the best way - use notepad, and upload it via a free FTP program :D.

I liked Frontpage better for page design because I thought it was more intuitive (read: Office-like), but LOVED Dreamweaver for coding in PHP. Editing files directly on the server and not having to upload (you can do the same with HTML) is a godsend.

Another vote for Dreamweaver. I tried out MS Frontpage 2000 for a while, but I came across Dreamweaver in 2001, I haven't gone back. I currently run Dreamweaver MX on my home computers and version 8 on my work Mac. I like it a lot, and wouldn't use anything else. I do on occasions use a 3rd party ftp client when I need to make quick changes.
