Hello group,

I recently volunteered to be the webmaster for our local club.  (The Clark County Amateur Radio Club  -Indiana- )  We have a rapidly growing club, with a web page hosted by QSL.net.

I'm not a complete beginner, but I am still a bit of a novice.  I put together a Rover page many years ago that works, but is pretty simple.  ( http://www.qsl.net/n9rla  )  Back then I was using Microsoft Frontpage and just a text editor.  Now it looks like Frontpage is history.

What software is popular for web design now?  I tried Dream Weaver, and it looks pretty good, but is way over my budget.  I don't mind paying a bit for software, but this is volunteer stuff so I don't want to go over board...

Basically I will be taking an existing set of web pages, updating and revamping them a bit, and FTP'ing them back and forth...

I'm using an older Windows 7 laptop.

Any tips appreciated,
73
Dan

I quit using 'local' software for editing my website a few years ago.

All my websites (hamradio as well as for my business) are now Wordpress. Very easy to edit and to maintain.

I use Joomla for the framwork and then find a template that is close to what I want the site to look like. Many free templates and extensions out there for Joomla.  Wordpress is large as well, depending upon what you want out of your site.
