HI, I am trying to create and publish a new business website, too. I have read alot on the internet and I've talked to several people. Overall, the advice has been to go with Yahoo! Sitebuilder. It looks good on the Yahoo site, it sounds easy to use, but IT'S NOT WORKNG FOR ME!! I've followed all the advice offered by Yahoo, I've disabled some other programs while running SiteBuilder, I've uninstalled and reloaded SB and JAVA numerous times, but still it won't run properly.
My system meets the requirements listed for SiteBuilder. I have downloaded and installed it correctly. The problem I am having is this: When I click the icon for SiteBuilder, an MS-DOS window opens, then nothing else happens for up to 10 minutes. About half the time, a screen opens with the SiteBuilder title, but that ususally hangs up, too. The farthest I've gotten with the program is to step 3, "choose your template", but I am unable to select or download anything. I get a message box that says I have encountered a serious error, and that a report can be generated and sent to Yahoo! I don't know what else to try. Yahoo! customer support did offer to send a SiteBuilder CD, but it won't be here for weeks.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read my posting! Shawn in Texas
