Hi COBOLdinosaur,

actually i was using a pirate copy of FP, now i need to redo the web using a similar tool, but as I lack the capital, I am looking for a free tool, which would you recommend?

Thanks

Save your money and buy a legal copy of FP, or get rid of the toys and learn to work with the code.  I don't have any recommendations because I don't use anything but straight editors that do not get between me and what  am building.

Thanks COBOLdinosaur, for your advice. btw, do you mind if I ask which 'straight editor' you use? it sounds like a WYSIWYG editor.

Never WYSIWYG.  They generate garbage pages.  Most of the time I use Notepad or Mozilla composer (in normal mode).

I think what you are looking for is something like this: http://www.nvu.com

It's Open Source (free), very graphical (so you don't have to dig in the code - no Cobol, I didn't just condone that action. ;-), is pretty easy to use, works on multiple platforms (including windows), and did I mention free? ;-)

You could also look at http://www.evrsoft.com/ for 1st Page 2000 Free Edition.


Cheers!

Also, forgot to mention that if you upload via ftp to a FP extensions enabled site, it will most likely corrupt the FP extensions, and will have to be cleaned up by your web host.  I know from experience...(oops; did I just admit that I have actually *used* FP before? ;-)
