Can you build a new website from scratch withcontribute? - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Does it have to be existing content? I use contribute to manage one of my websites and it's fun and easy. I am not good with htlm and realy could not stand online sitbuilders. Could it be done? Should it be done? Sorry if this topic has come up before I always do a seach, but didn't see anything. Suggestions appreaciated....

    First of all, thats HTML :-)

    Second, yes you could create a web site from scratch using Contribute, but it
    would be very limited as to what it could do. Contribute doesn't allow you to
    edit scripts of any kind from the Contribute interface so you'd have to edit
    those in an external program, which means that any JavaScript or server side
    scripts would need to be done outside of Contribute as well.

    Ya, sorry about the typo, I get ahead of myself sometimes. Anyways, I don't
    need to build a real detaled site. I think I will have to try it. Most of my
    content is just scans from our catalog. This is kinda new to me, I'm not even
    sure what scripts do. I just need to get a basic site off the ground to get
    some exposure. I have alot to learn but rome wasn't built in a day. Is
    Dreamweaver hard to use for a beginer?

    Yes, particularly if you don't know HTLM.

    Really, there is a steep learning curve.

    there are other programs that you might find easier or more to your
    liking/price. Do a search through Google to locate them.

    I watched the commercials on this site for dreamweaver, They make it seem easy
    but I know it would be a chore to learn. Can't you just save images and
    doents as html and post them? (probably too much work) I will do a search
    for another program. I just registered my domain name and forund an affordable
    host. Now I just got to find a way to make it all happen and soon.
