Hi all,

I have a page on my site that I never seem to have the time to update as much as I would like to, and a friend offered his help because what he uses the web for, mostly revolves around this certain subject. He seems to be eager to learn, and I would like him to have total control over managing the content of this section of my site, but he is "green" and I don't want to overwhelm him to much.

I am familiar with several products, but none seem to fit what I am looking for. I would like him to use something like Notepad++, because it is very straight forward with excellent syntax highlighting. But it does'nt support it's own FTP capabilities.

I'm not an advocate for learning to write web sites with WYSIWYG apps, so that leaves out most of the ones that I can think of. Copy/Paste of URL's and some basic word processing, followed by uploading the changes to my server are all he is going to be doing for now, so the smaller and simpler the better.

Please don't spend too much time on this, there are people out there with needs that require much more attention, but if a program pops into your mind, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanx in advance,


nos :thumbsup:

Well, I use Dreamweaver 8. It has a WYSIWYG interface and a code interface that can be used exclusively or in concert. It also helps when typing code because it offers options based on partial maches (eg: if you type in "<a" a small dropdown menu will give you options like "href=" and "name=". It also has ftp support.

Kinda pricey, though.

Check out First Page 2006 I havn't used this version, I have used the 200 version and liked it. Best of all is the price -- free
I finally got it all together, now if I could just remember where I put it.

Well, I use Dreamweaver 8.



I also use Dreamweaver 8, and other than the price, were talking about a guy who calls me every time his Firewall alerts him to give internet access to a program. :thumbsup: Although it would be rather humerous to set him loose in Dreamweaver just to see how many times he would call me.

Yes, I have contemplated showing him First Page 2006, and I have tested it out a bit as well, (Im a New Program-aholik). What I don't like about the apps. like that, is the delay you get when you are typing. For some reason, several WYSIWYG titles suffer from this problem, I think it's because it has to process the info through the "Coder" and "Designer" modes, but Im not sure.

Hi everyone,


I am so sorry, I feel like I have wasted your time. I would also suggest all of those titles, and have tried all of them out at one point in time. I can probobly name the top 25 most downloaded apps as well. If you are familiar with EditPad light, that would be perfect, small, fast with syntax highlighting, replace, and so fourth.......but it lacks FTP. If I could find an app that was say, EditPad light+FileZilla in one, I would be joyful.

I actually made a batch file to associate with apps. such as Notepad++, and EditPad light, using the FTP via Command Promp. Works well, and when made correctly, easier than anything else to use, there is only one catch......passwords are not secure that way, they are sent as plain text. :thumbsup:

Im thinking I will just have to settle with installing two seperate programs to get what I am looking for. But, I truly appreciate the effort, and if anyone has any suggestions that are off the beaten path, but reliable, my ears are always open.

Thanx again,

nos :flowers:
