What is the best inexpensive website software for building a multi page personal website? I am looking for something to build my family's site that will be on my laptop. I want it to be wysiwyg, so I can build my site on the laptop and then upload it to the hosting company. The host I have has several free sitebuilders that dont do what I want. I would like to be able to arrange pics etc and not have to host them seperately at another site to show them. I used to have MS front page and I loved it, but in one of my moves it has been lost. I really dont want to spend a few hundred bucks for my little site. Does anyone have any opinions?

out of curiosity, what host are you using?

Most hosts use the same/similar wysiwyg editors and let you host everything on their site.
Hell, seems like the majority are doing "unlimited disk space" for like $6 a month now

Just go buy a template. Don't waste your money on software.

I am using Justhost. I got my domain name and hosting for 165 for 4 years. Where do I get a web template.

i guess im getting confused. I used to have justhost and they have a wysiwyg editor, a program that organizes pictures too and you host all your files from them (pretty much why you would get a webhost)

"I would like to be able to arrange pics etc and not have to host them separately at another site to show them"

i guess it's kind of throwing me off

They offer 4 different editors, but I cant load anything I have tried on the craptop so I can play with it without internet access.

You can also develop websites in Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express, it's free and pretty good.
