    Exclamation Desperate - we need a WYSIWYG site builder & content mananger

    Hello!

    We are desperatly in search of a WYSIWYG site builder & content manager at a reasonable price for our web designer to use.

    PLEASE DON'T MISUNDERSTAND - Our web designer does NOT need the WYSIWYG builder,she does AWESOME work.. WE (at the office) need the editor LOL!

    We will need to go in daily & make changes, add links, make sub-domain pages, add articles, change & update pics, etc. etc..

    Since we need to be able to do this ourselves, we need the WYSIWYG editor We can not go to her 3 times a day to change this, update this, etc. as we outsource to her..

    What do you guys think of this one????

    www.pointclickcreate.com

    Above all - we need the web designer to be able to do anything design wise with the site, as she would if she was not using the editor..

    THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!!

    I like contribute, thought I didn't like their restrictions/limitations or control of certain issues.

    Dreamweaver Might Fit the Bill!

    I had the EXACT same issue with my site - awesome and tech-savvy designers and programmers - and then non-technical writers needing to update.

    Macromedia's Dreamweaver is a professional and easy-to-learn solution.

    It can be toggled between 'design' view (WYSIWYG) and 'code' view (html or other code).

    If you have a reasonably capable writer - they can simply copy a pre-existing template and add any new text or copy needed.

    It has worked well for us.

    Good luck!

    I would suggest Dreamweaver also. It may be a little expensive but there is not better tool out the for the job. Also most people are using it these days so it is easy to get answers to your questions.

    TYPO3 has a very nice IE based WYSIWYG, however the downside is you need someone who understands TYPO3. On the front end TYPO3 is very easy to use. The back end (administrative and developement) is a bit more complex.

    Your designer may want to check out these TYPO3 template tutorials.

    Try WebEdit Pro:
    http://www.webedpro.com

    edits static HTML files, so your designers still free to do her stuff, and you dont can stick to your same hosting.. i.e. its installed on your server..

    www.siteworkspro.com - Complete CMS system with multiple admin levels

    If you need something very basic I think you can find a free one that edits HTML files on your server via browser. Basically you put the area you want to be editable inside tags so the WYSIWYG editor reads it and allows editing. Try searching Hotscripts

    I have found Webedit an absolute godsend, it seems pretty well unbreakable although the 26kb limit for filesize upload is a pain in the butt.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    Forgot to mention in last post that we tried pointclickcreate and it was a nightmare
