- During today's video, I mention a few code editors to help you along with HTML and CSS. Which one you use really comes down to personal preference. Currently, I'm using Github's Atom, a simple, easy to use code editor. There's also Adobe Brackets, and Sublime Text. These and others are all great choices. And best of all, they're all free!
- If you'd like to know more about code editors and how they compare, take a look at my post, Code Editors For Small Business Website Owners.
- Both Dreamweaver and WordPress were mentioned in today's video. If you'd like to see how these two web design tools compare to one another, check out Which One, Dreamweaver Or WordPress?
- One of the different ways to build websites that we discussed was using a visual website builder. Specifically, I strongly recommend going with a self-hosted website builder. Builders like Adobe Muse, Pingendo, Bootstrap Studio, Mobirise, Blocs (Mac only), Macaw, and one of my personal favourites, Pinegrow are all great choices. Another fantastic visual website builder is Elementor, which functions as a WordPress plug-in.
