I've been using Y!'s Sitebuilder and it's older brother, Pagebuilder, for longer than I want to think about and have finally just had it with both of them. Pagebuilder dates back to GeoCities and Sitebuilder was supposed to be the "Great Revamp" of all WYSIWYG site compositors.... well, ain't happened yet!

Of late (last few years) both of these have been getting hinkier and hinkier and it's now to the point where I can rarely even get up a visible menu in either of them to do repairs or additions.

I need some recommendations on a fairly brainless free WYSIWYG, into which I can import the existing websites (and they're NOT small!), rebuild as necessary and then republish to my Yahoo domains so I can maintain the sites.

OK, I said "free", but an inexpensive one would also be acceptable...

Perhaps I'm wishing for the Moon, but I thought if anyone would know....

Please feel free to reply off-line if you wish...

I have had pretty good luck using NVU Free, open source web authoring software for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh, it has a few kinks here and there but overall is workable.

If you want free, go with NVU. If you want paid, go with Adobe Dreamweaver(big bucks unless you can get some sort of college or work discount...)

Development of NVU halted in 2005. Kompozer project has taken over from where NVU left.

Thanks for the info I guess that accounts for the giddiness of NVU

I always have to go through in notepad and clean things up.

Going to get me some Kompozer.
