    I've only been using a Mac for about two months now. I'm looking for a program that can do an alright job of creating/updating websites. I'm not a pro in this but need something that'll look pleasing to the eye. I've seen a lot about iWeb but it doesn't appear to be sold anymore for Loin.

    What is a good program I can get for creating/updating websites.

    Personally i use Espresso by Mac Rabbit. It lets you keep everything organised, and auto fills the code as you type, saving time. So go check that on google.

    Otherwise the only thing similar really is Dreamweaver, which is ok ish.

    Really depends on how you want to make the website, and control etc.

    From scratch? Use text edit or Espresso as i said above.

    Just want to use ones made already? Download wordpress and install on a server, or local server and go use pre-made themes (Free and paid) or create your own.

    You should learn to use a content management system such as WordPress as bornblind suggested. Others include Joomla, Drupal, and CMSMS.

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I found out the site I'm being asked to manage was created and managed via WordPress. I've not used it so could someone let me know if anything is built into their site?

    I use Rapidweaver, its fairly easy to use, tons of templates and plugins to extend the power and flexibility.
