    I have downloaded and been using dreamweaver for two weeks. I am not a web designer I am a guitarist. I am building an instruction guitar website which will have a lot of videos. Short between 10 and 60 seconds. I want the site to be easy to navigate and simple . I do not have the resources to hire anyone and will be updating it biweekly or monthly. Because of my lack of knowledge and all the choices joomla wordpress etc I want to put my limited resources in the right direction, so I do not have to do anything over again. I have one more week of the trial version of dreamweaver before I need to purchase. I am making progress in dreamweaver and find the process of learning the css enjoyable. Thank you for any input regarding my delemma.

    I would stick with Dreamweaver (pay the price for it) ... but look on Ebay to save $$

    Then, for videos, I would use YouTube. Post them on YouTube, and also use
    that as your video library ... linked from your website. That gives your website
    access to them, but also anyone who happens to find them on YouTube, can
    get back to your website.

    You should search YouTube and see how many guitar lesson vids there are,
    and how yours would compare in quality and popularity. You would be surprised
    to find out just how many there are.

    FYI ...
    This is by far my favorite guitar "lesson". Not really a lesson, but it's fun to watch:

    Lessons from Angus ... very interesting!

    I agree with mlseim. One thing that may also do the trick is Konductor (http://www.konductor.net) it works with native Dreamweaver templates to allow for easier updates to the site once built in Dreamweaver. I think it works with CS3 & 4. Good luck!

    Not much experience with Konductor, but have heard many good things.
