Sometimes you need to create an “old-school” webpage. And by “old-school” I mean a static, html-based page that can run anywhere. Not a WordPress template or other CMS template, an honest to goodness html page. I’ve been hit with this need myself. Sometimes it’s needing a semi-complex table to go into a post. Maybe I need a quick and dirty landing page for a site-in-progess. The thing is that while I learned html back in the day (pre–1995 thank you very much), I don’t like to code by hand. Heck, few of us really like to code by hand.
This is when you need to turn to a decent (and I stress decent) WYSIWYG html editor. Have one handy? Maybe not. How about checking out MacFlux?
There are two important parts of a good WYSIWYG editor: simplicity and clean code. You need to be able to lay out a page and getting looking how you want without a steep learning curve. You also need to know that the underlying code, isn’t sheer and utter crap. You don’t want bloated code full of tables, invisible images, and DIVs. Look, that’s how we coded in the days before CSS, you don’t want to do that now.
MacFlux gives you the balance of power and ease-of-use. The ability to code by hand when you need to (sometimes it is faster to code by hand, believe it or not), templates to help get you going, and the site management features that won’t make you pull your hair out.
And with the deal at $39 (61% off), it’s really a price that can’t be beat. Considering the free alternatives will make you pull your hair out (been there, done that) and Dreamweaver costs a small fortune. How about save yourself the hassle and money and get something that will just get the job done?
