I'd like to get a little more sophisticated site builder than Geocitie's site builder. Any suggestions for something I can use with Ubuntu 8.10??

Kompozer is great :). (download from http://kompozer.net/download.php)

But at the moment there is a bug which makes it pretty much unusable, hopefully it will be fixed soon!

For coding crimson editor runs fine with wine, download from www.crimsoneditor.com.

For graphics there is gimp obviously.

All of them are free :D.

Aptana (http://www.aptana.com)

Although it's more programmer oriented.

a server based option you could try if you have php on the web server is Gunther: http://gunther.smallroomsoftware.com/view.php/page/gunther
Not being developed any more, but still works well.

Don't know what your looking for exactly.
But I use Quanta plus (http://quanta.kdewebdev.org/) as xhtml and css editor. Don't know if the WYSIWYG part works, only use the 50/50 view to align my div's in new projects because it updates view, sort of, almost, on the fly.
It finishes your tags, you can set templates, etc.
It also has code highlight for other languages.

EDIT:
Downloadable with Synaptic Package Manager.

Do you mean like a content management system?

If so Drupal and Joomla spring to mind.

I would recommend Joomla, though it may be a little tricky at the beginning.

As a web developer I found Joomla a little too limiting to be honest. I know other people like it though.

Until they get kompozer fixed, I've just been using OOWriter. It does a pretty good job. Sure would like to see my kompozer back though.

I am able to please my costumer with what I offer in Joomla. I know its a bit sturdy and in some cases you have to invent some rather than just instaslling it.

I've been having a bit of a play with Bluefish (http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/) in last couple of days and it seems a pretty solid app. I did have a play around with Screem (http://www.screem.org/), but it's a little bug-ridden and kept crashing on this box.

Is Seamonkey any good for web building? I'm looking for a decent wysiwyg editor for a newb that works on multiple platforms linux/windows/osX.

-Thanks.

Runs good for me...

Can any one tell me if there's some thing on ubuntu that works like dreamweaver?

what exactly is it you want from dreamweaver?
code colouring?
templates?
file tree?
wysiwyg?
project manager?
code completion?

Hi Lunx,


I've been having a bit of a play with Bluefish (http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/) in last couple of days and it seems a pretty solid app.

I also am a huge fan of BlueFish. I have built a few 'hobby' sites using it exclusively including my pride and joy the slrn website (http://slrn.sourceforge.net/). Bluefish never ever crashes and it seems to give the right ratio of hand-holding to 'work it out yourself' for me, and I suspect for many others as well.
