    Web develop tool advice sought

    I would like advice on tools to use for Web development. I have used FrontPage in the past but feel there must be something better out there. FrontPage doesn't even seem to allow one to make simple menus on the page.

    I would like a tool that can support e-commerce and dynamic database access.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Have you checked into the suggestions in <post#=324147>post 324147</post#>? Good that your question is here now, because this forum should give it a lot more feedback. But since DreamWeaver has already been suggested, I wanted to make sure everyone else was on the same "page." <img src=/S/pun.gif border=0 alt=pun width=22 height=18> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    MS has released a FREE ASP.NET IDE tool for web development. check it out here: http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1
    You'll need the .NET framework installed but the download site tests for that and gives you the option to install the framework

    Well Mark you can sense the love I'm feeling for Dreamweaver menus at the moment in my <post#=320387 >post 320387 </post#> . So from my perspective the canned Dreamweaver menu code is somewhat limited unless you are prepared to troubleshoot them. Oh, and I ran into quite a bit of difficulty with the Mac crowd and menu visibility <insert eyerolling smilie here>. I kludged a solution by oversizing everything. Don't know whether this solved the problem, but I haven't heard any complaints for a while.

    Cheers

    Yes, I think their canned code is about as good as a Microsoft 1.0 release. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> To be honest, I have never used the supplied code, instead using a template of my own and modifying it as required. I much prefer troubleshooting my own code as opposed to figuring someone else's out!

    Do you have many Mac users that you need to support? I tend to work only with Mozilla and IE, since I have no Mac handy to test with.

    How many MAC users, I don't know - but it is a challenge since I too, do not have a MAC so I have to wait for the comments to come in.
