    Hi Lyfang,
    I'm a big fan of Seamonkey, for me it's much less buggy than Kompozer and far simpler to use. I recall that it was removed from the Precise repos due to the PPA not being maintained but after doing a search I found this https://launchpad.net/~joe-nationnet.../seamonkey-dev which seems to have a Quantal build. I haven't tested it so I can't really recommend it. As Seamonkey is updated regularly I would sugest checking out the official website an downloading a copy from there http://www.seamonkey-project.org/ that's what I've been doing and it been working fine for me on Precise 12.04. Although Seamonkey does not have a CSS editor like Kompozer, this still works better for me cause I find it easier to edit CSS directly. To be honest I find the Kompozer interface a little confusing Regarding a PHP WYSIWIG editor I think you'll be hard pressed to find any reputable software resembling that (open or closed). Being a logic-based computer programming language and not a mark-up language g
    nerally means the closest you'll get to WYSIWYG is an IDE. I use Netbeans for PHP development but many people also use Eclipse.

    [SOLVED] up-to-date WYSIWYG website editor. Thanks BcRich! Now I'll use Composer from the SeaMonkey Suite 2.13.2 (package seamonkey 2.13.2-0ubuntu1~quantal), which is also the latest version (2.13.2) from the SeaMonkey project's website. Composer has a feature that can switch between Normal (WYSIWYG mode) and <HTML> Source. LibreOffice 3.6 works too but is mainly an office suite. However if one wants to pass the W3C's HTML validation test one should use the Amaya Web editor (from W3C).

    Most CMS work great alone like: Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla. What about redesigning and dealing with a CMS framework? Is there an open source website editor that allows to modify a CMS web template?

    I haven't tried it in WINE yet, but CodeLobster offers plug-ins for a price. It is one of the best non-VS IDEs I've used so far (though it doesn't include database support I believe).

    Available plug-ins:
    • CakePHP plug-in
    • CodeIgniter plug-in
    • Drupal plug-in
    • Facebook plug-in
    • JQuery plug-in
    • Joomla plug-in
    • Smarty plug-in
    • Symfony plug-in
    • WordPress plug-in
    • Yii plug-in

    The free version handles HTML, Javascript, CSS and PHP.

    Why do you need it at all? I mean, come on, we are long past the age of Microsoft Frontpage

    These days people builds website on top of Bootstrap, HTML5 Boilerplate and the like. You only need to customize styles, cut and place graphics.

    It's been a long time since I've been here.

    True, BlueGriffon is not in the repository. You'll want to go to bluegriffon.org and download the Ubuntu installer.

    BlueGriffon website didn't include a .deb file to download. I use SeaMonkey Browser for browsing and will try to make a great webpage using SeaMonkey Composer, "Publishing Site Settings..." could include an option to login in and synchronize with CMS, but doesn't.

    Plain HTML Building from scratch saving a new page using plain static HTML: You can add an external style sheet (CSS) and insert an image. Done. Disadvantage is that plain HTML sites often require more coding for a website to look modern. Open source WYSIWYG website editors include: SeaMonkey Composer and Amaya. I have found SeaMonkey Composer work better than Amaya with Lubuntu.

    Content Management System I prefer CMS (is dynamic and database driven) when the site needs to be up-to-date and changes often. One disadvantage with CMS is usually higher bandwidth usage. Popular open source CMSs include Drupal, Joomla! and Wordpress. Find a CMS template and start inserting text and images.

    Text editor Development in editors that work like an advanced text editor gives more control. Great for programmers.

    In the end CMS (and HTML5) might win.
