Fellow Ubuntu goers,

What's a good, easy to use program to create a webpage? I'm not a web designer, but I need to make a basic website for my small company. I have MS Frontpage, but I was curious if there's anything like that for ubuntu.

Not sure how similar or dissimilar it is to frontpage, but bluefish html editor seems pretty powerful and easy to use.
sudo apt-get install bluefishHave also heard of a program called joomla, but have never used that one. There are probably others. Look here (http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Linux_software_equivalent_to_Windows_software).

Haven't tried any of these myself, but here's a list of WYSIWYG editors for Linux from About.com

I use Kompozer. It's not in add/remove programs, but from memory, there is a deb file in the Kompozer web site.
I find it's good because you can either work in WYSIWYG mode or in HTML.
Give it a try.

While I've always just preferred a text editor (my favorite is kate) there are some programs which I gather are pretty nice.

Bluefish is an html editor which I think has some capabilities to build webpages in a more visual manner, and even aside from that I hear good things about it as just a straight editor

Quanta+ is another editor that is a little more focused on a graphical layout

nvu is similar to quanta from what I gather, and i don't think it's in the repositories (but you should check, because I'm not sure at the moment). you can get it here: http://net2.com/nvu/download.html

bluefish and quanta are available in the repositories as far as I know, but not nvu.

Note, Kompozer = updated NVu, basically.

The word graphical is appealing to me so I'll try this one first:)
