    Need editing tool for existing webpages

    Some years ago, I built some simple websites for my consulting business using Web Easy Professional 10. I have moved my business since I built the websites, and need to change addresses and telephone numbers. Yes, I could reactivate my license for that software and change things, but I am much more into Ubuntu than Win 10/11 (yes, I have such PCs, but for specific purposes). I do not know what I am doing, and just want something easy to download the pages that need changing and upload the pages I have changed.

    Thank you,

    John

    If you are only editing text in a webpage, a text editor can open an HTML file for editing and saving. I use geany. I would recommend that.

    For Linux, I mostly use Gnome Text Editor or the source editor in Eclipse. But I've been doing HTML & CSS for over 22 years now. I started out with NoteTab Pro, but that was under Windows. Funny thing is that I bought it when they started out, when it was a "lifetime license"... I used FireFox with the Menu Bar turned on and toggle the Developer Mode... So I could refresh and see the previews.

    My students who I taught Web Design to, mostly used NotePad++ and BlueFish... BlueFish is cross-platform.

    Another that is Cross-platform now is Visual Studio. Honestly, I used the Windows version a lot for C# and .NET programming for Windows, but have not used it running in Linux.

    The thing is, all you really need is a text editor. The source for a webpage is just "text". But when you van use a full blown HTML Editor, that can add intellitext completion, tag management, and branch collapsing. That helps make things easier to keep track of... And helps prevent syntax errors.
