Creating a basic website with no or little coding knowledge?

Hi,

What is the best web design programme if i want to design a basic website without knowing any coding? However i could learn the basics if needed. I have no plans to actually make the website go 'live' so it's more of a creative task for myself. As i have a Mac could i use iWeb?

Thanks

Rapidweaver is well liked and easy to learn.

You could if you organise your own domain and web hosting.

iWeb will teach you bad habits. That's not an opinion, it's a fact as I've spent years on this forum helping users with iWeb proprietary/annoying issues not common on other platforms and IDE's. And who wants to learn on a deprecated product, that's just not sensible if you need to research something or run into trouble.

I share the advice to use Rapidweaver which has a nice GUI interface for respectable WYSIWYG and preview (although no product is perfect, so always test in a real browser). Rapidweaver also will allow you to test concepts as you learn more on the back end over time, with no need to switch to a new product, i.e. you won't outgrow Rapidweaver rapidly, pardon the pun.
