    any good WYSIWYG for editing HTML files?

    I'm looking for a WYSIWYG that is similar to KompoZer, I've tried LibreOffice Writer and it was a nightmare to use.

    I've used KompoZer when I was still using Windows XP and it was incredible, but KompoZer's latest version is 0.7.10 which is 10 years ago, so it's outdated.

    I've installed Bluefish and it's confusing to use, I loaded an HTML file for me to edit and all I'm seeing is HTML scripting, how do I get it to function like KompoZer?

    I've read the Bluefish manual and it said Bluefish is not a WYSIWYG editor.

    I use Geany, then click the "Run or view the current file" button and the edited page opens in my default browser.

    You can install it from the Ubuntu Software app.

    Have you considered the option of writing your content in markdown in an editor such as Atom?

    Then you can use pandoc via command line to convert your markdown content into HTML or even HTML slide presentations or PDF (there are many options).

    https://pandoc.org/demos.html

    Atom has a markdown preview plugin.

    Re: any good WYSIWYG for editing HTML files?

    I should have been clearer, I have 0 knowledge on HTML language, so basically, I'm looking for WYSIWYG functionality to Dreamweaver, the closest one is KompoZer, but it is outdated.

    Take a look at SeaMonkey.

    This screenshot on the SeaMonkey web site clearly shows that Composer has a multi-tabbed interface, one tab is WYSIWYG editing, the others for previews of the HTML source etc.

    SeaMonkey Composer is not in the Ubuntu repositories and has to be downloaded from the SeaMonkey website as a .bz2 file and unpacked. The latest release was just last month. It seems that the download comprises a complete suite of applications that include a web browser and email program.

    I've never used SeaMonkey myself so can't vouch for any of its claimed capabilities or how well it works with whichever version of Ubuntu you are using. Your choices are very limited and in due course you should learn at least HTML and CSS so you can write the raw code yourself. Hope that helps.
