dare i say it....FrontPage...

also, if you want free web hosting, your ISP workspace would probably be best for now...

How can you say such a thing.. :D

For someone who wants to run a website and have PC info, i'm surprised that you don't want to learn even basic HTML. it's not really all that difficult. You could ask people around here for help if you're stuck... but if you don't want to learn, that's your choice.. Frontpage is enough to make some simple pages, but if you want to do a bit more stuff, then take a look at Dreamweaver.. that's my HTML program of choice.

You could use a program like swish, its basically easier flash 5 but it possible and quite easy to make a whole website out of it, there are also tutorials on how to upload ur webpage onto a server etc.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like I should really learn HTML, I just don't have the time. I believe I found a place to host my page, so that's not a problem.

Anyway ow hard is it to learn HTML? I have a rather busy scehdual and don't have a lot of free time. Are there any good HTML teaching programs out there? Someone said using flash 5 to build a site, but isn't that harder?:confused: :confused:

Thanks in advance.

Not flash 5, but a program that is similar to it, but waay easier, my m8 made our cs clan site with it, its pretty simple.

Well, everyone learns differently. I think the real key is to find one of the many HTML tutorial sites that speaks to you.

For myself HTML Goodies (http://www.htmlgoodies.com) was the site that did the trick. But you'll have to look around to see what you can relate to.

Don't be lazy. Goto my site, http://www.devarticles.com and start learning PHP and MySQL! It's seriously easier than you think.

i agree with DevArticles.com!

just spend some time to design it, then learn some basic HTML + PHP + mysql, and your laughin'. then after you've finished your design, you will understand how to integrate php+mysql into it, even if using another 3rd party script.

then all you need to do after that is visit a page to post news, and you wont need to spend much time.

so the time investment will pay off.

plus, you've got all us tweaktowners to help if u have trouble :)
