Website software

Post by ed » Sat Oct 19, 2019 11:25 am

I want to throw together what I think a friends website should look like. no selling, just info. Need 3 or 4 tabs with product contents. Need the ability to download spec sheets from said tabs.

Pictures, no videos. clean, simple, easily navigable.

How can I do this

Hire a web designer. OTOH, I've seen your website, so maybe you should hire a consultant to hire a web designer. We want to get your input as far away from the final product as possible.

Most hosting providers have DIY website builder options.

Or you can do it on Wix.

Might be some cheap web designers on Fiverr.

Early versions of Netscape had a web page editor built in. 8)

You know Abdul, you remind me of an old fart sitting with a bunch of kids.

The kids are discussing big data and cloud based services and the like and you are sitting there on a nail keg, supporting yourself with a cane. Occasionally you'll rouse yourself:

Abdul: You know, we used to mine silicone in these parts. Germanium too! You know you'd have nothing if is wasn't for silicon.

The kids listen respectfully then go back to the present day.

Just making an observation is all.

I'd show you what I think needs replacing but it is too embarrassing. All I am trying to do is to clean it up. I don't want to do it, just show what it ought to look like,.

Minimalist. It is directed to people that buy weapons for institutions. They dont want bullshit, just the facts. You make them work, they are gone.
