Web-site design software as simple as iWeb, but better?

Hey Guys,

I am going to be making a website for a small business idea I have over the next few weeks. It doesn't need to be too complicated or anything, and I don't know how to code. I have used iWeb in the past for another website, and felt it was a little limiting. The simplicity was awesome though and it was super easy to use.

Therefore, my question is:
Does a program exist that is as simple as iWeb but perhaps has more functionality/detail? Again, I don't want anything code-based.

Thanks a lot in advance.

We don't want to be trapped in some half-assed template for our websites.

Espresso 2 or Coda 2. Rapidweaver which has already been mentioned. Non of these are iWeb but are simple to learn and use.

All you need is a domain. Web address. Hoster.

Wordpress. Free

A website of your choice for max $40 from themeforest .com

No coding. Professional website. Easy content management.

I even had a company ask me to contact him as he liked my website so much. (I'm a print graphic designer)

That is the best way, but that's not quite as simple as iWeb though.

The themes there are great. It's useful to have HTML/CSS knowledge if going down this route, in case the theme doesn't allow you to modify it through the front-end.

You also need knowledge of FTP, installing WordPress, creating a MySQL database for WordPress, installing the theme, etc, etc. Theme developers on ThemeForest don't help with that sort of stuff, they assume you know all that stuff already.

I use powweb.com as my hoster. They are very Wordpress friendly. Yes there is some learning but to be honest I have no idea what MYSLQ is and many if these other technical terms. There is a far amount of experimenting but without iWeb I wanted to see what my other options are.

The themes can be installed from the Wordpress login area.

I have tried them all, and concluded and decided that Joomla is the best.
