Front Page 2000 vs Dreamweaver 3?
I have got both and an ocean of space (around 57gb of space). So realy I am just looking for an opinion (and a reason for comming to this) because so far all the people I ask say they like Dreamweaver because it is used more comercally... That may be so but what Iam looking for a is REAL reason YOU have come to!
P.S. I prefere FrontPage 2000 because it has a more collected feal to it as opposed to floating boxes that appear if they want to and it is also easier to manage web sites as a whole.
In my opinion I prefer DW3 but thats in comparison to FrontPage 98, I mean the floating windows arent that hard to manage, I personally think features of DW are easier to access through its interface
just my opinion anyway
i like dreamweaver 4 better because it allows u to clean up html and fix errors so that is the real big thing for me. fp2000 and fp98 kinda are the same to me. ive tried them both and fp2000 doesnt really got anything extra
I haven't tried Frontpage 2000 before, but I have tried the 2002 version, but I like Dreamweaver better and I prefer it more. I feel that Frontpage is too "linear" in designing if you noe what i mean, but I dun use frontpage much either and probably haven't used much of its full features yet.
I have never used FP but i do like DW.
but as luck would have it my web hosts use frontpage extensions - go figure!
What about GoLive?
How do you guys feel about Adobe Golive compared to Frontpage and Dreamweaver?
Dreamweaver 4 Ultra Dev is good with implementing dbweb pages.
Dreamweaver4 any day!!!
Dreamweaver gives more control on the code generated...
MSFrontPage is for sissies (users of FPextensions) or for
people who have sold their souls to MS(those who are commited
to using MS technologies for the backend)
What ya say...!
A REAL reason
FP2000 writes sloppy and wasteful code. In my Dreamweaver class, one of our assignments was to take an HTML doc made in FP and import it into Dreamweaver. The original document was 250+ lines of FP code, using the Dreamweaver "Clean-up Code" feature we took out all the useless garbage that FP puts in there. After we cleaned up the code, it turned out to be 34 lines of code, and the page looked exactly the same. So if you should decide to use FP, yer gonna need all that extra space!
go for dreamweaver ultradev 4 !! I write ASP pages for a living using SQL server and being a SQL guy I was amazed how easy ultradev was to do some cool stuff (even for a non web guru like me!)
FP V DW
Hmmm FP V DW which is best, eeerrmmm lets see:
has a useful preview page which shows java working rather than a grey java box as in DW
if your used to MS apps. the interface will be farmiliar.
FP can mess up any script in your page other than HTML.
It adds it's own code to your html if you want it to or not.
It puts HTML in where it THINKS it should be even if u change it and save it, it will put it back again. (VERY annoying!)
I have known FP to move script which was out side the body tags into the body tags and the code wouldnt work, script like ASP which runs happily out of body tags.
your server must have MS extensions if you want FP to uplaod your app.
the code FP adds has little to no explanation (comment)
DW good: all of it.
DW bad: nothing really but its wysiwyg view would be better if it shown J/Script working.
hmmmm , i'll let u make your own mind up
hmm.. i think dreamweaver is the better of the two..... mainly for a couple of reasons. frontpage adds extra code to pages that isn't really needed, secondly and most importantly for me, to get the most out of frontpage you need to have frontpage server extensions installed on your host. its not a big problem these days, but it used to be!
i guess i am just stuck in my ways.... perhaps if frontpage 2003 has some vast improvement i may use it.... but fp2002 just sits on my harddrive (with golive 5) whilst i use dw4ultradev....
I noticed that when I used FP2000, it added a lot of junk to my code. Macromedia Dreamweaver is much better.
