html alternative
« on: April 07, 2012, 05:26:07 PM »
hello!

I found html easy to learn, but very hard to use
all those tags and classes are really messy

is there a better alternative?

thanks!

There is only HTML for doing what HTML does. There are other things to do different chores, but your only real choice if HTML is too hard is to use something that generates HTML for you, such as a CMS like WordPress or Joomla... or a WYSIWYG HTML editor.

I already use an WYSIWYG HTML editor

but I cant convert text to bold or red, easily, like in MS Word, I cant change the position of text blocks and graphics, easily, by draggind them, etc

* Stephen66515 hates WYSIWYG when it comes to website design so he shall bow out of this conversation :D

WYSIWYG web editing does not work as intended, imo

if you "build" an MS Word document, you do it in a WYSIWYG way, you don't code it
ofcourse the capabilities are very limited

WYSIWYG in web building, limits the capabilities as well, but it doesnt offer a trully easy way, like MS Word does :S

so, I would agree with you Stephen

Not for this guy I don't think, since I doubt he can handle a scripting language (that world normally output HTML) if he can't even code HTML.

Make the page in MSWord as you want it then save it as an html document. It will do what you want although it won't be much of a webpage.
Depending what you want thoughu you're probably better of using something like Weebly or Squarespace and just focus on writing the content instead of doing html.
