Hi

Trying to find what the differences are between WordPress and Dreamweaver. I had a class learning Dreamweaver and got along okay with it. Was thinking about WordPress and how hard it is to use and learn. I do not know anything about WordPress except that it is open source.

Thanks, Doug

Dreamweaver allows you to build custom websites in plain old HTML/CSS. Wordpress is a Content Management System, which means you will make "posts" (similar to how you posted here) to appear on your website. For a dynamic website, a CMS is a must. However, there is a learning curve involved since you will need to make themes/templates to work with the Wordpress CMS.

CMS systems have many advantages over regular HTML/CSS coding in that they make it easier to post content and add pages to your site, allow you to create a very dynamic site (such as allowing users to contribute content/images/videos), addons, commenting system, user registration/login, etc.

You could even go one step more and create your own CMS system. But that would require alot of knowledge in PHP and databases.

Also, here is a list of Features for Wordpress: http://wordpress.org/about/features/

Hi

Thanks for the reply. From what I read on the links I think I will be better off with Dreamweaver. I have a fair handel with HTML and CSS.

Thanks, Doug

In shorter terms Dreamweaver is a website development tool while Wordpress is a website you can setup and post your own content/material and let people interact with it.

People usually get confused by these two. WordPress is a CMS and Dreamweaver  is an editing tool. It allows you to create websites, but you have to have knowledge of CSS and HTML. Most people are going to prefer WordPress because of the ease of use, power, and the different features at your fingertips, but the techie might want to use Dreamweaver to build small static sites.  http://wpvsblogger.com/dreamweaver-vs-wordpress/
