Is there a good free idiot's website builder

  LanceAlot 10:23 17 Aug 12

I'm trying to build a friend's website using Frontpage 2003 but it's proving to be more difficult than I thought. I assumed it was more user-friendly than it actually it. I can't even get free templates which would make it a lot easier.

I need an idiot's website creator is it's possible.

I guess not then.

Thanks for that. But perhaps I'll peruse instead of loitering ;o)

Have you considered using Wordpress? It might help you.

Also, I don't know if that's exactly what you want, but you can try one of the DIY site builders. I know about jimd,, wix, etc.

I managed to learn a bit about Serif WebPlus Starter and have now published my simple site

Many thanks for all replies.

Thanks for your constructive input. I have put tags for search engines but I'm not sure how to do the label thing.

The window bars are not of the best design, looking more 'prison-like' but my friend is not easily advised. I have a much better design on our house nearer the lake which is easier on the eye.

I'll have a tinker to see if I can improve.

I agree with fourm member, this is a good start.

I suggest that you include a location map, some information about local amenities - shopping, public transport, that kind of thing.

It's also helpful to include a rental tariff.

Eventually you might add a page with some links/information about local tourist attractions - perhaps the Impala Park, the Kiboko Bay Beach Resort, boat rides,etc.

Some information about local culture and customs is a good idea, as is climate information, and anything else that will help to inform potential customers.

Once again, thanks. There's a lot for me to digest.
